Policy changes almost monthly... It becomes difficult to keep staff on track especially in high volume 300+ staff stores.

Advice to Management

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.

    Pros

    50% unlimited discount
    Rewards for Banana cards
    Flexible Hours
    Don't have to deal with teenagers

    Cons

    Yearly "raises" are bull crap. I've worked there for three years and got a .17 cent raise as the lead sales.
    A lot of pressure to get Banana Cards
    Get's boring after a few years

    Advice to Management

    Give higher raises, maybe you'll keep people working longer.
