I have been working at Banana Republic

Pros

The discount is pretty great. You get it to Gap BR Old Navy and the outlets. The hours are flexible. Great for someone in school. Typically you meet some cool people.

Cons

The pay is lousy. It's retail. Management isn't the best. Lots of turnover. No room to grow. The work can be tedious and boring. Customers are rude.

Doesn't Recommend

    I worked at Banana Republic full-time for more than 5 years

    Pros

    Leading company in operating systems, great retail place to begin one career, sets the standards for other companies and helped me be great at what I do, where I worked afterwards.

    Cons

    Have to be a self-starter if you want to learn. Would always outsource to fill management positions, wouldn't even interview associates interested in growing with the company.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    This company provides great tools, use them and help your associates grow. I assure you it would be a great for the company
