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

Pros

50% discount on purchases, participation in monthly bonus for every team member in the store (excluding managers) can have a flexible schedule which is good while attending school.

Cons

Weekend working schedules. Opportunity to advance is limited and not really promoted. Low starting base pay and annual raises are small ( between .12c and .25c per hour) annual review process is not very meaningful - such going through the motions , very cookie cutter, no career development plans.

    I worked at Banana Republic part-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Employee discount is nice and preview of all sales before the occur.
    Clientele is a step above most which makes it more pleasant to help them.
    Flexible hours due to a larger number of employees

    Cons

    High pressure environment, often not recognized for out of the box thinking or extra effort.
    Very high turnover on employees
    Scheduling can often be last minute and lack of a more defined work schedule 2-3 weeks out makes planning outside of work more difficult.

    I have been working at Banana Republic part-time

    Pros

    easy tasks, most customers are nice, co workers are nice as well

    Cons

    Managers expect you to open new credit cards every day even though most people do not want to. Managers pressure the employees too much.

    Advice to Management

    Promote internally. The people that have been working there longer know the business better than people that are being hired for management from stores like target and sears.
