    I worked at BCBG full-time (more than an year)

    Pros

    Manager Discount is 70% makes it worthwhile if you're into fashion. For an associate, its a pretty laid back environment to work in and the hours are very flexible.

    Cons

    Managers are expected to work a lot of hours with very little compensation. Managers are also expected to work outside their paid shifts to improve the store if necessary. Associates were very poorly trained or sometimes not trained at all which required management to work demanding hours to ensure everyone was up to speed.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Promote from within based on skill and performance!
    Create a team of trainers so that everyone can be sufficiently trained.

    Amazing people who are passionate about the company and the brands. Open door policy with access to top executives. Advancement opportunities. Comprehensive benefits package. Challenging work assignments. Ability to feel my impact on the business. If you are willing to put in the work you will reap a reward. BCBG is for resourceful people who are willing to work hard and have fun along the way. No complainers, only innovators and doers.

    More transparent communication and employee engagement. Strategic planning, cross-functional partnerships and leadership development are all opportunities that can be leveraged to improve the business.

    Focus on working together to achieve goals.

    Pros

    clothing and discount(40%) and working in the inshop Dilards location added another 25% on top where great.

    Cons

    Old manger was replaced with an employee with only 3 months of experenced with the company and run the store into the ground and all of a sudden merchandise went missing. When HR finally listened to our pleas for help and came to the store to visit they ended up clearing the whole store and we all paid for the poor judgement by hiring an awlfull replacment in the first place.

    I worked at BCBG as an intern (less than an year)

    Pros

    Big company, good exposure. Everything in-house so Lubov and Max Azria work in the same building

    Cons

    Great divide between departments-there weren't any opportunities to meet or work with people outside of cubicle. Vernon is also an awful factory area to be working in-no food around, safety of the area is questionable.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    More interactions with people in different levels

    I have been working at BCBG part-time

    Pros

    The perk is awesome, WHEN WE GET IT
    The styles are amazing
    Flexible Hours

    Cons

    The material on most of the clothing is getting cheaper and cheaper
    The perk is almost nonexistent which kills me because how do you expect the associates to wear the brand when they can't afford it
    Management is horrible, its pretty much every man for themselves, there is no such thing as teamwork
    Associates are threatened, not motivated to sell
    Whenever there is a visit (when corporate comes) , management puts on a show and ignores the issues at hand

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Listen to your associates! I've been working at BCBG as long as I have because I love what I do, but how can I sell the brand and live the brand if I cannot wear the brand.
    There needs to be an understanding that in order for a store to excel, there must be teamwork
    I do not know a single person who works well under threats.......it needs to stop

    Pros

    There is upwards mobility at this company if you want to grow here. There are very specific tracks given any entry-level position -but there is definitely a ceiling unless people in upper management or senior positions decide to quit or move elsewhere. The retail discount you receive working for corporate is great. The work is very demanding but there is definitely a lot of learn here about the business.

    Cons

    Working corporate here is not ideal. The hours are very long and working 12-15 hour days is the norm for some people here and most people don't even take a lunch break because there's so much work to be done. Compensation could be much better. It feels like a huge sorority.
