Sales Associate (Former Employee) – South Surrey, BC – 11 December 2016
This must have been the worst place for anyone to have ever worked at. They would schedule you for 3.75 hour shifts so they wouldn't have to give you a break. The store was always dusty. A lot of miscommunication between managers who always tried to undermine the others abilities.
Only good thing was the discounts you get as an employee at Banana, Gap and Old Navy.

Employer do not care about employees, cover harassment and bulling. I would like to ask everybody who are not treat well at this company to file the complain. Maybe this way we can fight bad management at the stores.
Sales Associate (Current Employee) – Canada – 29 October 2016
This company has been amazing and the employees and managers are so friendly and caring! From teaching me things that I need to do and teaching to be disciplined with how I work, I will forever be thankful for my time here.
Banana Republic's overall environment was productive and engaging. The management exemplified strong leadership and promoted task oriented schedules. The environment encouraged a strong team spirit which maximized efficiency and the overall organization of the store. Enabled employees to develop a broad range of social skills by hosting many training meetings and leadership programs.
Sales Associate (Former Employee) – Vancouver, BC – 21 July 2016
I learned how to manage many different tasks and how work the job at a store. I did not like of the management and my co-workers. The reason for this is because it was not a friendly environment. Everyone was rude and snarky; being one way to your face another behind your back. The most enjoyable part of the job was working with all my fellow new hires and the discounts.
Brand Ambassador (Former Employee) – Toronto, ON – 16 June 2016
Terrible wages but the people you meet are great, it seems the store in yorkdale was great at one point. There were legitimate interactions with guests which was great, though the decline of such interactions began closer to the time I left. Sales became more important.
Banana Republic is a great work environment with a wonderful team to work with. You are always learning something new everything and are able to work while also having fun. Management is great, human resources are always there for you no matter the issue. The bonus was always very appreciated as well.
