    Know what you want and go after it!

    Design Associate (Current Employee) Vernon, CA

    ProsIf you are interested in a career in the fashion industry and are very focused and driven you can achieve your goals at BCBG but it's up to you as nothing will be handed to you.

    The corporate HQ is a great place to network as the company is not that big. Contacts you meet here will be valuable to your career and I've run into several after leaving BCBG where I currently work.

    ConsLong hours and low pay until you reach upper management levels.

    BCBG

    BCBGMaxAzria Sales Associate (Current Employee) Oakbrook Terrace, IL

    ProsI love the clothes, the aesthetic is great and luckily so are the ladies I work with. You learn alot about the business of fashion and for someone as concerned about style as me- it has been rewarding so far. I love styling people and the GUEST strategey BCBG employs to get sales allows one to meet new people and help them look their best for some of the most important events of their lives.

    ConsFor the amount the company bring is you are not paid nearly enough- or given enough of a discount to support this "bon chic, bon gonrie" wardrobe they expect you to maintain. You have a sales goal to meet daily, which can be stressful if their are interceding variables that are out of your control (ie foot traffic, slow day, bad weather)

    Advice to Senior ManagementPay your girls more! I would sleep in BCBG if I could afford it!

    very disorganized company setting

    Sales Associate (Former Employee) Boston, MA

    Prosgreat discount, great product selection, opportunity for bonus and commission, employees are able to receive health benefits

    Consfrequent mistakes in payroll, very disorganized by all levels of management, outdated logistics systems, minimal levels of opportunities for management training and advancement, expected to be a slave to the company and work long hours in somewhat unsuitable conditions (heels are required)

    Advice to Senior Managementoffer more motivation and incentives

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company

    Overall good experience

    BCBGMaxAzria Sales Associate (Current Employee) Austin, TX

    ProsThe perk discount that you get seasonally is 75% off and makes everything pretty affordable. I've always had a good experience with the other employees as we usually all have the same interests and have fun while working. You're encouraged to make relationships with the clients which is better than sitting and folding all day or organizing files. The selling experience is better than a lot of other stores and is definitely a good foundation in selling high end goods.

    ConsCompetitive selling isn't always easy. Lots of emphasis on making sales goals. Commission, depending on your store, isn't easy to achieve and I have yet to achieve it which is a bummer because I think the company's selling structure would benefit with providing commission.

    Advice to Senior ManagementI think we should have an easier commission structure, maybe adjust it to the volume of each stores.
