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 (Less than a year)

    Pros

    The employee discount is quite good and did meet some other personable down to earth employees.

    Cons

    The work environment was very strict, didn't seem to have a lot FUN while I was working. A lot of the shift managers always seemed to give me negative feedback and never would really complement me in anyway on the work that I had done a good job on. There are way to strict deadlines to get things accomplished.

    Advice to Management

    Give equal respect to all employees, that seems to be a common theme among other disgruntled employees who are writing reviews. Listen to employees and value their opinions. Shift managers have to be chosen a bit better, I'm certainly not one to badmouth people but a lot of them had some serious attitude and it was at times very unbearable to work with them.
