I loved working at BCBG until we got a new manager.
Key Holder/Sales Associate (Former Employee) – Arizona – February 12, 2019
For the first six months that I worked for BCBGMaxAzria, I loved it. I enjoyed my managers and fellow associates. I loved the 40% discount that we received. And since we were a partnershop (inside of a Macy’s), we also received an additional 20% off from Macy’s. I loved clienteling and building relationships with customers. I helped with opening and closing proceedures, as well as floorsets, visual displays, markdowns, merchandising, etc. I stuck with being a sales associate/key holder because of the promise of the ability to be promoted to manager or assistant manager (the only two positions where you receive adequate compensation and benefits). But when a new manager came to the store I worked at, everything changed for the worse. It became a volatile work environment and everything I loved about the company and that I enjoyed going to work tor everyday, changed for the worse. The work environment became so toxic that I could no longer work for the company. If you have a great manager, it is a fantastic company to work for, but the wrong management can make it a hellacious work environment. Also, the non-partnershop locations are also much more enjoyable to work at.
