    I applied in-person – interviewed at bebe stores.

    Interview Details

    I went in store and filled out an application wearing a pencil skirt, stylish sandals and not revealing crop top. I had to call after a week or so to confirm and interview, which made me a bit nervous but the interview was a lot of me just listening to what I would be doing working there. Go dressed sharp and no harsh makeup, hair done.

    Application Details

    I applied in-person. The process took a weekinterviewed at bebe stores.

    Interview Details

    I walked in on a Saturday and asked for an application. I filled it out and turned it in to that same day to the assistant manager. She looked over it in front of me and looked at my experience and asked me my availability and asked if I was available for a group interview Monday at 1. I showed up to the store but the store manager wasn't there so I had to wait a bit so I just looked around the store. I was the only one who showed up to the group interview. Her questions were very simple and she was very nice.

    Co Manager Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Milpitas, CA
    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took a weekinterviewed at bebe stores.

    Interview Details

    I showed up dressed up. Not the usual black and white. I wore a printed pencil skirt, a white v-neck and wedge boots. I felt like I should look dressy/businessy.

    I was interviewed by I believe the DM and the SM. The DM was asking all of the questions. I don't think I got the job because they weren't writing anything down. I felt like the interview was rushed. They were doing interviews the whole day. It only lasted about 20 minutes. We did the interview on a bench outside the store. I don't think they liked me when they saw me and just interviewed me just because. They didn't even say they were going to get back to me.

    Interview Questions
    • How did you approach a person who was stealing (associate and client)

      How many people were you overseeing?
