    I have been working at BCBG part-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Great sales experience, if you have a good team they're constantly looking out for you and encouraging you to reach your goals. Access to the latest fashion you will learn a lot about garments construction and styling the right pieces for the right body types. Plus you can't beat that employee discount!

    Cons

    The store is crazy during holiday season and everything gets unorganized quickly. This is a retail position so coworkers are not the most professional. Unfortunately you will meet the 30 something's who discourage you from being agressive and pursuing bigger and better things. Another huge con - having to wear heals. Sorry but it's 2016 and wearing heals during an 8 hour shift is ridiculous please expect my orthopedic bills paired with tons of law suits within the next 10 years. Employees should also receive free clothes if you want is to have the BCBG "look". Even with the discount the expectation to wear the brand is ridiculous.

    Advice to Management

    Take time to listen to your associates. If an item is hideous ask for their feedback - we know our clients better than you do.

    I worked at BCBG part-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Decent discount and typical sales hours. Standard pay. The customers were, for the most part, agreeable. If you don't work in an independent store, instead the department store ones, you get more extensive discounts.

    Cons

    At first, you don't get the best hours. Restrictive uniform if you have anything to cover like tattoos, and you can't wear sandals, even if they're BCBG.

    Advice to Management

    Be less restrictive on the clothing and shoes guidelines. Offer an employee discount on top of the current ones, rather than on the full MSRP .

    Pros

    Great employee discount, amazing clothes, fun coworkers, getting to dress up for work, flexible hours, can usually take time off (except holidays but that's expected in retail).

    Cons

    My partner shop was located inside a Dillard's and their management was absolutely horrid. They were unprofessional and inconsistent and often targeted BCBG employees. Low hourly wage for the work load. Not much opportunity for growth if your store isn't earning enough.
