I have been working at Banana Republic part-time (Less than a year)

Pros

Banana Republic is a great place to work. It's a nice environment, there are a few good benefits, no commission, which is good, but if you open cards you can make extra money. The managers and higher ups seem to care about your well being.

Cons

I wish pay was better, but it is retail. Also there's pressure to open cards and I wish that that wasn't so important.

    I have been working at Banana Republic full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Great discount and Paid vacations. For full time employees 4 weeks paid vacation for the first 4 Years. The benefits are what sells the job.

    Cons

    The "productivity" expectations are completely unrealistic. Push for banana cards has become the #1 priority instead of development. Company has become very cheap and refuses to pay competitive for part time associates. Part time employees can't survive making 8.50 an hour. Constant manager turn over.

    Advice to Management

    Pay competitively so that the turn over rate drops. Promote with-in and motivate your managers. Invest money and time to protect talented managers.
