    I have been working at David's Bridal part-time (more than a year)

    Pros

    The job itself is incredibly rewarding. You are surrounded by happiness and when you work hard and do well, the customers show appreciation. You get to help people and connect with others. I think working here has made me a better and happier person in general.

    Cons

    It can be fast paced and hectic. The technology is behind the times. Not all of the stores have wi-fi which is a huge problem for getting things accomplished quickly. There is an unrealistic expectation that in the newly competitive field we will sell to every bride within an hour. The sales goals can be difficult to reach especially in light of recent changes.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    There are always corporate changes happening and none of the changes take into account the people who are actually selling on the floor. Each change seems to make the job more difficult, the workers less satisfied and successful, and hurts the store's overall sales and customer service ranking. It seems like the higher-ups in the corporation are dead set on hurting their own business and I don't feel like the company in general has the back of their employees. They should talk to the people who do the job, not just the management. They also need to take a real close look at their core values and whether they as a company are meeting them. I am soon leaving the job because I don't think the company has much integrity, even though I love the job and am good at it. It is very disappointing to me to have to write that.

    Pros

    Work/life balance, employees are treated well, on site gym at corporate which is free to employees, being a part of the change going on to elevate the company, pay is above industry average

    Cons

    Change is great but there are some growing pains especially with the more tenured employees who may be resistant to change. Very lean teams.

    Pros

    Talking to happy customers excited about their weddinge

    Cons

    It's a good challenge to try to help as many people as possible and you find that you've actually superceded your own expectations

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    I think that upper management should from time to time draw ideas from the team players and not just from those on their level because some of us have really great input that could take the company to great financial success.

    Pros

    Can be an exciting environment, most brides come in excited and happy! You will hone your sales skills.

    Cons

    Its usually an all female staff so the gossip mill runs rampat. constantly under pressure to make sales. borderline stalking the brides to get them back in.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    be realistic with your goals and coach and mentor the consultant's more!
