    I have been working at David's Bridal full-time for more than 10 years

    Pros

    Satisfaction of helping a woman find the dress of her dreams, the ability to advance, it is fun working with beautiful dresses, flexible hours for stylists,

    Cons

    If you are with a bride and it is time to leave, you cannot leave until you are through with your customer, long hours on the weekends

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Promote success, do not punish the successful, make sure all the drama stays out of the store

    I have been working at David's Bridal part-time

    Pros

    It is a lot of fun to put together looks for the Bride and her bridal party, it is even more rewarding to see that look on a Bride's face when she finds the dress of her dream. The management team really goes above and beyond to help you commission.

    Cons

    During the off season, it is very hard to make commission. Especially hard when no one comes into the store during your shift, or you are not given any brides during a shift. In order to make the big bucks, you have to make $250/hour, which could be easy if you sold every bride that comes through the door, but that is very rare.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Some of the managers are great to work with, but others have favorites and it is very obvious to the other employees especially when they let these favorites get out of doing work that the rest of the team is expected to do.
