Love the staff, hate the commission aspect.

Commission makes the top sellers money, you get to be around awesome clothes, celebrities come in a lot, amazing 50% discount.

The competitiveness of some stylist is crazy, staying let regular retail stuff.

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

    Pros

    Bonus program, generous discount, fast paced

    Cons

    Insufficient and deficient training. Too much focus on "appointment business" Not enough support from regional management, inefficient payroll system, inconsistent directives (what was amazing one day, was horrendous the next)

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Have realistic expectations based on the economy and local markets and CONSISTENT directives.

    I have been working at bebe stores part-time (less than a year)

    Pros

    Great Discount, Good for people interested in the fashion industry.

    Cons

    Scheduling is awful. You're on call five days a week and scheduled three. For days you're on call, you're required to call two hours before your possible shift. YOU have to call, they won't call you. Minimum wage salary, lots of work, shitty commission, and fake staff. Fashion obsessed environment. Expected to wear heels everyday, call "clients" every day, make a minimum of 1500$ in sales per shift, and even log your accessories and outfit in a book for your manager to go over. It's ridiculous for the amount of work. The managers are paid great and do little floor work. Staff is paid terrible. If you dislike or are impartial to retail and the fashion industry, don't take this job! There's nothing in it for you. They don't tell you the bad things until after you've taken the job.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Please even out the work load with managers and heighten the pay. You can afford it.
