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

    Pros

    Selling fashion forward apparel is fun & Bebe is a good place to be on top of the lastest trends with a 50% employee discount. They have put more emphasis on educating their "stylist" or associates on trends, sales techniques, & give constant incentives for achieving top performaces. If you're a full time employee, the benefits package is great.

    Cons

    Although there is opportunity to move up within each store & the company, they are behind on any leadership development. It is inconsistent, unorganized, and hard to believe with all the micro-managing that occurs.
    If you're not willing to put in work, then the commission enviroment is not for you. You get what you put in.

    I worked at bebe stores full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    The company in itself offers an excellent two week training program with an interactive video. Great tools the enables the managers and stylist to keep up with the fashion trends and educate us about the product. It offers great benefits and raises the bar of management and associates when it comes to service.

    Cons

    The high and sometimes unrealistic expectations of the company can be stressful. Management and stylist have been unprofessional the store manager is either playing favoritism or refuses to hold stylist and management accountable for their bad behavior. Each management team is given a goal for a certain number of hours of sales for the store. The practice was good in theory but has created dishonesty, manipulation. Everyone looks out for themselves there's no teamwork.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Really listen don't hear what you want to hear. Make sure this is a fun professional environment. Treat everyone fairly don't pick and choose which policies you want to follow.
