I have been working at bebe stores part-time (More than a year)
Bebe thrives itself on making their employee's feel at home. I'm a male stylist, the only male stylist at my store and I cannot express how comfortable I feel working along women and selling women's clothing. Management truly cares about you and they make sure you are comfortable in the store. Bebe is also unique for their 5% commission pay, it's hard to find a clothing store in my area that pays commission. In my area the clients are lovely, we thrive to treat them with the most respect and really work hard to make sure they buy only the things they love. Management really has their minds focused to the goal and that goal is creating clientele. You get to make close friends with your coworkers and clients and if you work there long enough and if you are sincere with them they'll return the respect, especially your coworkers. They'll make sure you get the sale if its on hold under your name and make sure to help you out with your clients if your a little busy.
Unfortunately with commission pay comes greed, and with greed comes stylists that can and will steal your sale. This really only happens during and big sale event or holidays, but it really makes you feel betrayed. If you are busy with multiple clients and you cannot ring one of your clients up somebody will usually ring them up for you and even if they don't know you were helping them they would usually ask or you would tell them beforehand. But there are people who do not do this and it is upsetting to say the least. If there is a long line they will stay at the register and just place the sale under there number and earn the sale, then you're left wondering how they sold $3,000 and you only sold half of that when you had more than double the clients. Also the company urges the management to sell even though they do not earn commission just so that the company can save money (they save 18% annually if I'm not mistaken). If management doesn't reach their sale goals they will get written up and punished for letting the stylists earn their money. Its unfair to management to sell unnecessarily and unfair to the stylists who miss out on clients who buy. There is no reason why a manager should have $2,000 and a stylist only has $780.
Advice to Management
Work on a format that can prevent stylists from stealing sales like staying by the register and putting it under our name when it gets busy instead of worrying about making your own sales that earn your nothing.
