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

Pros

When we had actual customers, they were fun to work with and help dress. I enjoyed being around my other sales associates and working as a cashier.

Cons

Managers were very disorganized and unhelpful. They would spend most of their time in the back and whenever a customer want to speak to one of them, it would take them forever to actual come out to speak to them.

Advice to Management

They need to hire new managers. The ones at that location aren't there because they want to and you can really tell.

    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.
