    Negative Outlook

    I worked at bebe stores full-time for more than 5 years

    Pros

    good employee discount; fashionable environment; beautiful merchandise; quality used to be great especially shoes; good opportunity to learn about fashion and merchandising.

    Cons

    same problems as everywhere in retail: long hours working on your feet, aweful high maintenance customers, no opportunity to spend time with your family on holidays

    Advice to Management

    less talking more doing, more honesty and realistic goals, or at least decide what you want and stick to it: they will come up with a policy to resolve an issue until that policy causes another issue,- change their minds and make exceptions left and right but at the same time make YOU enforce the policy anyway, you can't have a cake and eat it too!!!

    I have been working at bebe stores full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Growth opportunities, you work with a great team, good discount, competitions and rewards, monthly bonuses, awesome merchandise, fashion forward environment.

    Cons

    Long hours, high pressure, high shrink, terrible return/exchange policy, working with general public, some clients can be extremely rude/needy. The company also should think about more technological advancements examples include newer POS systems, iPads, Apple Pay/Android Pay.

    Advice to Management

    Change return policy, re-evaluate bonus structure - more incentives/better bonus structure for employees, higher starting pay
