Other Employee Reviews for Banana Republic

    Pros

    - Great discounts (including The Gap and Old Navy)
    - Decent salary
    - Flexible schedule
    - Management was very understanding, friendly, and treated employees with respect.
    - Very happy atmosphere.

    Cons

    - On-call scheduling. They would cheat with this. I asked to only work 15-20 hours (I was a student at the time), and they would schedule me 20 hours of regular shifts, and then an extra 5-10 hours of on-call ones.
    - Despite how I mentioned the happy atmosphere, you can feel that there were some employees who were there only to make their sales and cut you if you get in their way.
    - As someone who was at sales support, despite that the customer would ask for our help, if we made too many sales (and therefore, didn't give a chance to the sales associates), we'd get reprimanded.

    Advice to Management

    Review and get rid of on-call schedules, and encourage working as a team than just trying to reach your sales goals.


  2. "Great job with benefits, but HR is very unhelpful"

    Pros

    It is a great place to work overall. Workload is great and stress is usually minimal. The company gives decent benefits.

    Cons

    HR does nothing when presented with complaints and pretends they are trying to help but in the end you are better off getting a lawyer if you have problems. Some stores are buddy-buddy with certain team members and they show favoritism and work to separate employees that do not go along with them.

    Advice to Management

    Respect the employees and actually investigate concerns because not every concern is an expression of a bitter employee. You end up losing some really great hard working employees while keeping some shady managers on staff.
