I have been working at Banana Republic part-time (less than an year)

Pros

Mostly easy going management. 99% of the sales associates are great to work with. Pay is decent. Have loved all of my managers except for one.

Cons

Quick turnover for management and for sales associates. Letting go of seasonal people that want to stay just to interview more people right after the season is over. Employees discount is terrible. Customers can get same prices on items.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Offer raises more frequently.

    I worked at Banana Republic full-time (more than 10 years)

    Pros

    Great discount at all three brands (Banana Republic, Gap, and Old Navy) including the outlet stores.

    Cons

    The company is so big that regional leadership has no idea what goes on at the district level. Every time a new district manager is hired, the expectations of the store leadership team change to that DM's preference. The management team doesn't care if you have to work late hours, miss lunch breaks, stay open in the middle of a severe weather threat....they only care about the bottom line. Not about you as a person. If you don't value your work/life balance then this is the perfect company for you.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Regional and Corporate management should be more involved within the stores to know what is really going on in your districts. Especially the districts within the Southeast and the Nashville district.
