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

    Pros

    Fast paced retail environment with a boutique atmosphere. Great learning experience on sales floor as well as how to clientele and keep a portfolio.

    Cons

    Loss of sales led to change in commission pay structure. Not lucrative enough for all the responsibility of merchandising, POS, clienteling, and maintaining the floor, etc., etc., etc. Very discouraging to be mislead.

    Advice to Management

    Make changes that actually help the business grow by listening to the people that actually work there everyday instead of just looking at the bottom line.

    Pros

    Employee discount was great! The energy was well round.

    Cons

    Corporate reminded you that you were just an "employee".
    The dress code was really strict when it came to dressing and looking the part,
    You were expected to do a lot of work and put in hours that you weren't scheduled.
    Management would guilt you into doing extra work

    Advice to Management

    Make it more of a enjoyable work environment. Don't make your employees feel like they are not important
