- Accepted OfferNeutral Experience
I applied in-person. The process took 1+ week – interviewed at bebe stores (Emeryville, CA).
filled out application come in for interview, asked withing a week to start. Very easy, but looking for knowledge, and experience. The Hiring manager I worked with actually remembered me from a time I shopped with a former lady friend and assisted 3 other clients in choosing their outfits. I basically helped her sales. Came back a few weeks later and she remembered me and offered me a position.

I applied through a recruiter. The process took 2 weeks – interviewed at bebe stores (South San Francisco, CA) in September 2013.
Three steps: external recruiter contacted me, referred me to the internal HR executive and was then scheduled to meet with the CIO And VP Store Systems, in person at their office.
- They kept concentrating on the fact that I had not specifically managed the skillset of the employees I would be taking on and wanted to know how I could possibly be effective. 1 Answer

I applied through a staffing agency. The process took 5 days – interviewed at bebe stores (Brisbane, CA) in May 2013.
Onsite: Interviewer was 10 minutes late. Same interviewer (very high executive) pulled the MS SQL Server code on the screen and asked if I have used the tool for my work as it is needed. My response was no, but I could learn it if required for my job. The next question was how to trouble shoot when an image is missing on the website, what is that due to, what does it translate to? The interviewer asked questions similar to the list during the phone interview and related to the tools listed as nice to have for the job. I explained that I don't know the details, but I had resources who did the configuration and changes to these tools to support the requirements for the project. He explained that he wanted PM who knows them now.
I had a 3 month gab between two recent jobs, he asked if I was fired, so I explained the reason for the gab.
I think it was no good use of my time and the executive's time to arrange face to face interview were a couple detailed questions related to MS SQL Server & Site catalyst could have been asked during the phone interview and determine it was not a good match. I think the list of the nice to have should be moved to the must have section of the job description. I was scheduled in the next hour to interview with the CIO, but was told he became busy!!
All applications are delivered by third party vendors!!

I applied through a recruiter. The process took 2 days – interviewed at bebe stores (Brisbane, CA).
Phone: Asked me about my familiarity with certain software products that were listed as 'nice to have'. I wasn't familiar with them but told them I was eager to learn.
Onsite: Same interviewer asked the exact same questions and was critical when I explained again that I was not familiar with the software but was eager to learn.
Don't understand why they brought me in if they already determined I didn't have the required skills. Overall the experience felt demeaning and the company culture had an unfriendly vibe.
- Asked exact same questions as with phone screen and almost nothing else. Even though I had 80% of the experience listed in the job description there were some specific products at the end that I had not used but the interview focused on knowing these. Answer Question

I applied online. The process took 1 day – interviewed at bebe stores (Brisbane, CA) in May 2008.
They basically grilled me with questions to see if I knew everything about the company and specifics of the job, when I was applying for an entry level position, and I stated I didn't have the experience. I realized that company wasn't for me.
