    I have been working at Banana Republic part-time

    Pros

    Great GM and co-workers
    Quality clothing; brand recognition
    Generally great customers

    Good for part time; temporary work for students.

    Cons

    Constant credit card banter and criticism. Asked to not take "no" for an answer.
    Job gets boring and repetitive; at times pointless.
    Low pay and terribly inconsistent hours.
    Inconsistent job duties: you can be a sales associate and the janitor.
    Being on-call is inconvenient.
    Clothing is not on-trend
    No way to move up in company

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    You can afford to pay your associates a little bit more. Stop the heavy reliance on credit cards, focus on the actual merchandise.
