Always push back...

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

    Pros

    It does offer a 50 percent discount on clothes, which you can occasionally share with friends.

    Cons

    The pay is very low, considering how expensive the clothes are. Also no commission? This is just a stop on the way to a better place to work.

    Advice to Management

    Don't continue being pennywise and dollar-foolish. You can't compete with J. Crew by being super attentive to customers but underpaying employees and making cheaper quality clothes in China.

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

    Pros

    They offer pretty flexible hours and the pay was decent for a fairly simple and easy job. Most coworkers were a lot of fun to work with and I didn't absolutely hate working there. Holiday season is busy but they treat their employees well and work around their schedules as much as possible.

    Cons

    The work environment was pompous and bugie and times but that was usually the customers that made it feel that way. Some of the management team and older employees were very arrogant about their position and tended to be on a power trip, which was really frustrating.
