    Pros

    This family owned company really has the best intentions in mind in regards to their customers and employees. How often in retail do you get to work so closely with a person and share in the most emotional purchase of her life? It is a rewarding experience to say the least.

    Cons

    Outdated technology. The company could really put some effort into upgrading systems in their retail stores. They might also benefit from a more updated advertising campaign to drive business.

    Pros

    I have a huge passion for this company. Alfred Angelo was founded in 1933 and is still family owned and operated. This company is continuing to grow stronger and stronger every yr. I have been with Alfred Angelo Bridal for 5yrs now and this is my career, my passion.

    As a manager I have a great support team, district manager is extremely approachable and very much involved in the stores to make our district very successful. We have on going training within our district to keep our talents and skills fine tuned.

    Great opportunity for management as well as stylist.

    Cons

    I believe every company has room for changes and improvements, Alfred Angelo Bridal is defiantly on the right track.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    I feel that we finally have a district manager that has walked in the store managers shoes before becoming the district manager, which gives here a better look on how to run the district and lead a successful team.

    I have been working at Alfred Angelo Bridal

    Pros

    I have been a part of a fast growth area within the company and have found each day to include new building pieces that need to be created reviewed and put in place. This allows both creativity and challenge for me and the entire team. It has been great to see people grow and move up in their group. This is a company that has always taken care of the people and continues to do so even in these hard times. The senior management is approachable and always listens. The example set by senior management during the years I have been around has been to roll up their sleeves and work hard.

    I am a proud member of the Alfred Angelo team and have been for more than a decade

    Cons

    A fast growing area has minimal down time, but this is the way I like to work.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Place resources in the areas that count. A little undercover boss can be a good thing. Sometimes it’s the small details that can be missed. We are all here to create the experience while selling the dress, clear the path to allow this to continue on.

    Hardwork Always Pays Off

    I have been working at Alfred Angelo Bridal

    Pros

    Alfred Angelo is a small company with strong family feel. Easy access to upper management at this company is unheard of in larger institutions. Hard work is absolutely noticed and appreciated. I have been promoted 2 times in 5 years. I appreciate who I work for and feel very appreciated back!.

    Cons

    Bridal is a different retail experience. It does not follow traditional retail rules. Customers are emotional, it takes a lot of patience and self control to be in this business. Staff members are also on Commission and that is also not the retail norm, and makes supervising these people much more taxing and challenging. It is a business you either love or hate. I love it, but unfortunately there are too many people in bridal that do not like it , but stay in it for the paycheck. Unfortunately, that gives the industry and many bridal companies a bad name. This also makes it challenging as a manager to find quality people to staff in store.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Continue to focus on goals for promoting from within, creating bonus structures that compensate for the hard work and effort people put in. Continue to innovate and look for cutting edge product for store personnel to be proud to sell.
