    Great atmosphere and people to work with. You learn a lot about customer service

  4. "Great Discount & Awesome Clothes, Wish Pay Was More Competitive"

    Former Employee - Assistant Manager & Keyholder- Retail Store

    I worked at BCBG part-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    -Awesome discount & clothes -Built an amazing wardrobe of clothes from my time working there and still wear most of the pieces (and still get compliments! :)
    -Styling people with great designer clothes, fun work environment
    -Opportunities to learn and gain experience in different areas of retail business (operations, visual, hiring, etc.) Was good experience as a first job
    -Not a very competitive sales environment, like other retail companies. Was mostly a supportive team environment (however, this may vary by retail location/team)
    -Built close friendships with team
    -Flexible schedule for people in school or other demands. However, working majority of weekends (or at least part of the weekend) is expected in almost all retail
    jobs

    Cons

    -Low pay and poor commission structure. Before, you had to reach a certain sales goal (that was usually very difficult to attain) to make commission, but from what I hear now (2018/2019), it's straight commission, based off however much you sell without having to hit a goal, which is great (I would ask them specifically though when you're applying)
    -Varied quality of corporate management. Some were really great and some that were not great/not supportive at all (There was a CEO change in 2016 and I've heard this has created positive shifts in management and policies, so keep that in mind)
    -Difficult to move up from retail to corporate. Hadn't heard of anyone during my time that made the jump
    -Cattiness from other employees, but for the most part worked with nice employees and was a supportive environment
