    Fun job

    Sales Specialist (Former Employee)

    ProsDiscount
    Fun atmosphere
    You learn a lot about world class service within a retail environment

    ConsLittle room for growth and when they do promote someone to management they base it off of how long you've been there, not necessarily how good you are at the job

    Advice to Senior ManagementPut a great focus on retaining talent and be more selective when picking your managers. Also, it would be great if there was greater access to other business areas of the company

    Bebe can be the best place to work but it depends on the area

    (Former Employee)

    ProsI started working for bebe as a co manager and got promoted to a store manager very fast! Bebe has one of the best medical/dental benefits in the industry. I had the best district manager when I started with the company. You can have a great life/work balance being a manager at bebe. I loved going to work and felt like I made a difference in the company.

    ConsThis is a great place to work depending on the area and who your district manager is. I started working for a great district manager, but when I transferred to another state I was a part of one of the worst districts. My new district manager did not care about people that worked for her and played favorites all the time. There was no accountability for bad performance, and no recognition for good performance.

    Advice to Senior ManagementHire only the best when it comes to district managers, if they are not preforming look at the reasons why. Maybe they are just not the right fit for the company. District managers should have passion for what they do and for the company that they work for. There is nothing more demotivating then a district manager that does not have those qualities and it will show in the performance.

    BEBE is great

    Stylist (Current Employee)
    Vancouver, BC (Canada)

    Prosone of the reasons why bebe is one of the best place to work at is because they have very good management system. they are helpful, friendly and encourages you constantly when you are working. the managers are your friend, but they always want you to improve. the pay is very good as well, they give you 5% commission so it makes you want to work harder, they give you a binder to keep all the clients info in, so that it is easy to keep up with what they want and to let them know when there is good sale going on.

    Consprobably some of the customers being vietnamese/persian/east indian, not all of them speaks english, its hard to communicate with them when they dont speak the language.

    Advice to Senior Managementsenior management does very good job of handling their staff in a professional manner but very helpful as well.
