    Pros

    I really liked the flexible work hours and ability to work remotely when needed. Additionally the upper management was competent and definitely strives to achieve excellence.

    Cons

    The instability of the company and not knowing what is going to happen is disheartening. I wish the company was more clear as to what was going on.

    Advice to Management

    Communicate what is going to happen with the company.

    Pros

    Great company, You know the other stores and everyone is helpful, babe is like a family. Not a lot of pressure or competitive sellers, and pretty good at promoting their employees.

    Cons

    Management makes a huge impact on the store, if you don't get a good manager you could hate your job.

    Advice to Management

    Hire mangers within, hire managers that care about the company (a lot of times they just hire because they're despite for anyone)

    I worked at bebe stores full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    I learned a lot, got to be responsible for running the majority of each store I was located at

    Cons

    I wasn't given great training when I first got promoted from stylist to sales manager. I was given much more work than I was supposed to be responsible for and if anything in the store failed, I was thrown under the bus and given blame. I didn't enjoy it because I constantly got passed up for further promotion when I deserved it over others who barely worked. Probably the reason the stores haven't been as profitable.

    Advice to Management

    Should have given those who actually worked hard the promotions, it definitely would have helped make the stores more profitable.

    I worked at bebe stores part-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Creative environment. Just like any other job it depends on who you work with. The company is big on woman empowerment and pro open breast-feeding. Really good commission. $120 sale= $2 $200= 5 $300= $10 and so on. Sounds hard but it builds up and theres room to move up!

    Cons

    None that I can think of.
