Sales Associate (Current Employee) – Mississauga, ON – 16 March 2018
Banana Republic is an amazing company to work at. It is a very calm environment, and their policies are very lenient as well. Working here has helped me further improve my communication skills. Also, it has allowed me to explore an entirely new industry. All in all, it has been my favourite job so far.
Sales Associate (Former Employee) – Niagara-on-the-Lake, ON – 18 February 2018
I worked there part-time while studying my Bachelor's degree. It helped me pay for school. They hired me with no previous retail experience based on my outgoing personality, and trained me in all I needed to know. It was scrum-diddily.
I love working here. I am just looking for something other than a retail job!

Sales Associate (Former Employee) – Burlington, ON – 11 January 2018
Overall nice employees, but some really unpleasant management. There was little to no training for the job, and I was told after I took the job I could not book days off. I also had to hunt down my paycheck.
Fun place to work, good for part-timers, management could be rude at times
Sales Associate & Cashier - Part-time Seasonal (Former Employee) – Greater Toronto Area, ON – 8 January 2018
Great benefits and employee discounts, co-workers were great, management was rude at times. I had fun working here for the time-being i was there, but i cannot picture myself working here longterm. They hardly give hours.
fun co-workers, employee discount at gap, old navy, athlete, etc
Sales Supervisor (Current Employee) – Vancouver, BC – 8 January 2018
I chose Banana Republic because I love the brand, however, the job experience has been fascinating. The management knows how to handle with all of us and you will always feel supported by them. The equal opportunities have been the main asset that the brand can offer to each one, based on your skills and performance.
Great place to work with thorough training and great coworkers
Brand Ambassador (Current Employee) – Ottawa, ON – 5 January 2018
A typical shift for me would be a morning shift, sometimes 4 hours, sometimes 8. For a 4 hour shift, I would help in the morning either with shipment, or replenishment/recovery, or cleaning/mopping the store. I would sweep for about 20 minutes, and then for an hour and a half, I would mop the store, and then recover the store (fold clothes on displays to make sure the store looked good when opened). I would then jump on cash, for the remainder of my shift. For an 8 hour shift, I would get my breaks, but still work on cash after we opened. I have learned a lot of things about a lot of things. I learned about types of pants, fits, styles of different items, and how to find the best fit for a customer. This job also helped me learn how to update my own style. Management at my store location has been absolutely incredible. It is filled with a bunch of young people, and young minded supervisors. They are always open to answering questions, and if you need anything, they do what they can to assist you with whatever you need. Workplace culture is great, it is always an upbeat environment, and all the coworkers are very fashion savvy, and have a great sense of what to match with what. The hardest part was working on speed, for myself personally, it took me a while to pick up the pace on a few things, and I am still working on it in some aspects. The most enjoyable part was that when we were dealing with a crazy sale, and had almost every employee working hard, my manager spoiled the employees with pizza and drinks for their lunch breaks. Overall, definitely an exceptional place to work,more... so far my favourite job I've had!less
Amazing coworkers and supervisors, thorough training, upbeat environment

Brand Ambassador (Current Employee) – Windsor, ON – 18 December 2017
I am a very active and social person, and this job provides me with an amazing environment to meet new people and be physical. I learned how to maintain and organize my workplace while assisting the constant stream of customers, come up with creative solutions to customer problems, and work as team during insanely busy periods.
