Pros

The management was upbeat and helpful with questions. Very positive environment working environment. Employees receive a 50% store discount- helpful with Banana Republic prices.

Cons

They really emphasize that you push the Banana Republic credit card on customers. I did not enjoy this aspect of selling as most customers (rightly) were not interested in another credit card but management would scold if you did not make a borderline annoying attempt to get the customer to sign up.
