This is for the Herald Square location

Stock Associate (Former Employee)
New York, NY

I worked at Banana Republic part-time for less than a year

ProsShort shifts
Cool co workers
Laid back environment

ConsCrappy managers who would stay in their offices all day while we busted our butts on the sales floor
There were also your typical slackers who would get away with murder, but because they were friends with the boss they would not get written up.
They REQUIRE open availability like most retailers so be prepared to not have any flexible in your life outside of Banana Republic.

Advice to Senior ManagementNow that everyone on the sales floor is underneath one job title (Sales Associate), It makes it hard to get everything done properly. Most employees are burned out or they chose to leave the company just like I did back in 2011 before the big change. Open your eyes and look at you high turnover rate. It's that way for a reason.

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company
