    I have been working at Banana Republic part-time

    Pros

    Great GM and co-workers
    Quality clothing; brand recognition
    Generally great customers

    Good for part time; temporary work for students.

    Cons

    Constant credit card banter and criticism. Asked to not take "no" for an answer.
    Job gets boring and repetitive; at times pointless.
    Low pay and terribly inconsistent hours.
    Inconsistent job duties: you can be a sales associate and the janitor.
    Being on-call is inconvenient.
    Clothing is not on-trend
    No way to move up in company

    Advice to Management

    You can afford to pay your associates a little bit more. Stop the heavy reliance on credit cards, focus on the actual merchandise.

    Pros

    The discount is pretty great. You get it to Gap BR Old Navy and the outlets. The hours are flexible. Great for someone in school. Typically you meet some cool people.

    Cons

    The pay is lousy. It's retail. Management isn't the best. Lots of turnover. No room to grow. The work can be tedious and boring. Customers are rude.
