I was able to improve communication skills working the costumers throughout my time working at Banana Republic. I was also taught to understand whats current with out clothing line and how to operate different positions whether it be sales associates or working behind the register.

缺点

Management was a bit inflexible to work schedules and did not discuss pay prior to hire.

Boring and poor management

I did not love working at banana republic in Niagara Falls. Tons of Canadians and the management was poor. I will say I made great friends working here.

Not what it used to be - now full of ridiculous policies that I don’t get paid enough to care abojt

They raised their prices, lowered their sales, and came up with weird new policies but didn’t raise employee wages to match the changing economy.I used to enjoy working here but after a very high management change, the company began enforcing very picky merchandising, visual, and signage requirements and a difficult dress code that is unfashionable and doesn’t even match the brand image. The life was sucked out of the company and the prices increased dramatically. The company began cutting hours and throwing extra work at us without enough notice for us to schedule appropriately (unannounced signage changes and extra shipments), leaving us short-staffed. The company had no issues with increasing prices of items, making coupons have more exclusions, and offering lame sales, but didn’t bother to increase wages of the employees that were struggling to adjust to the new economy and policies. I was here for 6 years and was told by my manager that I was one of their best employees. I came to every shift and was always on time, and I often covered emergency shifts with little notice. However, after 5 years of tiny raises, I was still making less money than a new hire for the same position.

I was a driver

I was a driver and you do not have to drive fast and I was loading the bananas until it's fully and the hard thing is when it's raining it's difficult to work and the enjoyment of this job I was working hard and having fun with my friends even if it's hot we were joking about it .

优点

缺点

Loved it for almost 20 years!!

I loved being a part of BR. Left for a different type of retail and no more folding. In any retail job you have to be a quick thinker, problem solver. N No day was the same. Hours could be crazy...staying til midnight to complete a floor set and come back next day at 6am. All in all, a great experience.

Room for growth

I had moved from multiple brands within GapInc and always enjoyed working for the company. As long as you have management that wants to develop you, there's a lot of potential. Do expect to be on your feet and sometimes be met with goals that are hard to achieve.

优点

management, development

缺点

pay

What is the best part of working at the company?Seeing the lookbooks, new merchandise and assisting customers.What is the most stressful part about working at the company?Having management stand over your shoulder every 5 minutes. Being talked to like a child, sarcasm, favoritism. Dealing with the disappointment of customers who can't return online purchases from the BR factory because that's a different store and we don't sell this merch in the mall store.What is the work environment and culture like at the company?Anxiety driven to make enough sales.What is a typical day like for you at the company?Manager provides instructions on tasks that will need to be done during the shift. sign into the company device before you start. Cleaning may come first or organizing the pile of returned clothes. May be operating the fitting room and/or engaging with shoppers on the floor. Also, packaging online orders.

Coworkers make it bearable

When I first started at banana I loved it. My coworkers were all great and we worked well as a team. As time went on I realized that all the company cares about is the credit cards… not to mention the managers were very adamant about you getting people to apply for one. I’m guessing it’s because they get something out of it while the sales associates doing all the work get absolutely nothing. There’s a ton of turnover for a reason.

Given hours you need

Honestly it’s great if you like helping others a lot . Learn how open cards . Management are not fair with hours unless your liked.you’ll ether have slow days or fast days.

Employ discounts, bad salary.

I worked there for more than 4 years and no advancement opportunity. Salary is not fair. They want you full time availability. They cut you hours and sent you home early if sales are not good for them.

Cliquey

Underpayed, inconsistent hours. High turnover in management and employees . One week you’ll work 40+ the next 12 if you’re lucky . Very inconsistent across the board

It is a great place to work at

I loved it because of how flexible they were with my schedule. The store did close because of Covid but I enjoyed it. It was always calm in the evenings. Customers where nice most of the times and everything was easy to learn.

Pretty okay

This job was actually pretty good, I worked there for almost a year the only problem is the entire time I worked there I never got a raise even tho new hires were being paid more than me. They’re actually really good about covering your shifts, you do kinda need to start earning brownie points tho so others feel like they should cover it.

This is a great place to work

Banana Republic was my first job, and after a year of job hopping, I'm happy to say I'm returning here. From working at other establishments, I learned that Banana Republic is a great retail store to work for. Pros- Coworkers and management are nice to work with- The company's systems are understandable and efficient- You do not have to promote their credit card like a salesperson trying to sell a car- When taking time off or trying to get your shifts covered, the store manager will handle it. You have an app that tells you your schedule and shifts that need to be covered. All I ever had to do to get a day off was post it and tell my manager, and she would work with the other employees to get it covered. As someone who covered others' shifts multiple times, the store manager is likely to text you asking if you would like to cover the shift and never argue when you say no. - For a retail store, the schedule is pretty flexible. After working at my location for only 2 months, I asked for 2 weeks off to go to Montana as a personal trip, and my manager worked hard to make sure everything could work out, which it did. Additionally, this was during Christmas. Cons: - I will acknowledge that my positive experience is heavily based on my manager being kind and good at her job. So some of my pros may not apply to other locations with managers who are not as great. - It is retail which means it can be very boring at times, and work can lag! - Though you do not have to promote any credit heavily, there are company competitions sometimes, and people can earn cash or other prizes -

Good place to work

Pretty good hours. Not the best in terms of management, but hours were flexible. Customers could be difficult to deal with, but if you were with the right manager, there would typically be no issues.

Decent

Decent workplace, management used to be great until it wasn’t as favorable. Lots of favoritism going on. However, environment was stable and felt at ease.

Great workplace and team

I was only working at BR for a few months before relocating but the interview was fun and engaging. It was a group interview and at the end we put outfits together to present to the boss. Fun team and hours are flexible especially if you’re a student.
