Good working environment and pleasant co-workers.

Sales Associate (Former Employee)
Seattle, WA

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

ConsThey 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.

Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend
