    I worked at Banana Republic part-time

    Pros

    Management team was on point. They knew how to give constructive feedback in a respectful manner and always praised successes as well.

    Cons

    Found it difficult to live off the part-time pay. I know their minimum pay is higher than other companies, but still not enough to live comfortably.

    Advice to Management

    Make sure all leaders are on the same page with processes and procedures. Sometimes it was confusing when one manager said one thing and another manager did things a different way.
