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

Pros

Great working environment. Great co-workers. Excellent job which helps you elevate your wardrobe to be more professional, which is great if you're a college student seeking to eventually be a professional.

Cons

There are no cons that I can think of that are highlighted in my mind. I think the biggest downfall is when the store gets slow and there isn't much to do, and no one to help.

Advice to Management

Advice to management would be to keep energy up when checking in sales associates because it sets the tone for their shift.

    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.

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