The managers are very rude and they don’t give you hours. First it’s not commission based but if u don’t sell they will send u home and not give you hours anymore. One bad sales day= no hours for at least 3 weeks. I just worked there to get by for school or else I would not recommend. They keep hiring people even though they have enough staff. They can’t even distribute the hours between the existing employees forget the new ones. Only the people u work with are nice but the management is bad.
Free lunches sometimes
It’s a very disorganized place to work. I find that it’s very “he said she said” or “do as I say, not as I do” type of place. no one has any kind of communication, especially in management. They do try and make you feel heard and be there for you have you’re having personal difficulties, but other than that there’s no real training. It isn’t a hard place to work, but it would be nice if there was one line of communication.
Everyone is very nice and supportive

Started in late november 2018 from a job fair at my school. Got a call a couple days later for a group interview/ orientation. Started as a part time seasonal sales associate, worked 5 days a week. Received experience in customer service, replenishment and markdowns. Very fast-paced, very competitive, have to learn yourself, can get pretty busy in the evening. People were nice until the management/ team leaders were picking favorites. I was not one of them so felt like I was being pushed around on some days. I was humiliated in front of customers. Started losing hours/days, instead of 5 days was to 1-2 or none at all. Had a good and bad experience working at banana republic.
discounts, long breaks
standing for long time, not enough hours, poor management, strict on dress code
Although my time at Banana Republic started off great, it quickly went downhill from there. Expect a lot of drama within the "team" and no consequences for speaking poorly about other employees and management. Newer employees are not trained properly and suffer because of it. Most sales associates end up doing more work than management, and on their own with no assistance. Management will enforce over-the-top customer service on guests that actually ends up driving them away/ leaving complaints. If you're looking to advance in the company, it probably won't happen. Workplace culture overall was horrible and not worth it.
Banana Republic provided me with some of the best memories of a job experience that I've ever had. The staff were always friendly, management was always pushing us to do our best despite being super laid back and kind, and the shifts were flexible and the location was wonderful.
As a student, it was easy to manage my time between work and school. The boss was very understanding and it was a great environment. A typical day of work would be to put on my microphone and earpiece, start cleaning and arranging the store, talking to clients in need of help and so on.
A typical day about Banana Republic would include maintaining constant communication with your colleagues, keeping the store clean and organized, giving customers suggestions, and learning what new merchandise is available as well as promotions as it was always changing. Everyone you worked with seemed really cheerful and friendly, both on and off the sales floor. Management was good, very involved, but not controlling or micro-managing in any way. Most enjoyable part was definitely getting a customer to buy additional items due to your suggestions.
Banana Republic offers opportunity for advancement, they welcome everyone and leaders and employees have regular communication. Leaders coach employee about their task to clarify expectations, and they do yearly evaluation where an employee and a leader discuss their goal for the year and how they can achieve the goal. They respect school school is you are a student, however they require students to work at least 3 times a week.
Gap Inc claims they are supportive of their people but when it comes down to actually having to they turn their backs their “vision and values” are not truthful they are only out for money and always looking to blame managers and staff for failures. Never anything positive to say upper management are pretentious. Would not recommend Banana or any other of the Gap Inc brands.
- You got to know your information about the clothing wear tiptop - You got to wear formals especially black -If customers ask for the stock in different sizes got to get device for availability in size and colour
I enjoyed working at Banana Republic. I did find, however, that it became quite competitive for hours right before I quit. They would track peoples sales and people who did not sell as much would not get as many hours. We didn't get a commission on any of the sales so there wasn't much reason to stress yourself out to get a lot of sales. I found it to be pretty boring, a typical clothing job, and quite slow. I quit because I found it so boring and wasn't getting enough hours. In the summer, because I am a student I requested full-time hours and I barely got three shifts a week.
