    I have been working at Banana Republic full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Clean environment with pleasant co-workers.

    Cons

    Management clogs pipeline, resulting in very few opportunities for employees to further their careers within the company. Employees are asked for too much for what they're paid for. Not enough praise to employees. Management is constantly late for opening shifts.

    Advice to Management

    Come to work on time! Set an example for your employees. No one wants to follow a leader that can't follow the rules.

    Pros

    Fun place to work, amazing managers, can request days off, often breaks, 50% off card that works at Banana and Gap, 25% off Old Navy and 20% off a online shoe store that I think starts with a P. I was promoted to a men's seller within 2 weeks of employment. Before the promotion I was on the NonSales team. NonSales do not interact with customers as much as Sellers do. NonSales spend their day boardfolding, running throwbacks ( means to put clothing that was left in the fitting rooms back on the shelf) and just making sure the store is up to standards ( meaning all clothing and products are exactly where they belong.) Bring good shoes because sometimes you will be folding for a long time, if your tall your back might start hurting from being bent all day. A Seller is probably the best position you can get. You walk the store and see if anyone needs help. You run product checks on the computer and use your walkie talkie to talk to the stock room incase you need a product. You really don't need any knowledge of clothing because you will learn everything on the job. Don't take this position if your not comfortable speaking with people! On a Saturday our store could make $60,000 easy.

    Cons

    Rude snobs as only the more wealthier people tend to shop here. It is slow Monday thru Thursday. You have to solicite a company card to customers. You are on call at least once a week. Low pay ($8.25), some female employees don't like each other.

    Advice to Management

    Treat ALL your customers with respect. I felt that whites received better service than anyone else.
