    Pros

    Very rewarding work for a retail environment. You're making dreams come true for people on their most special day!

    Cons

    Pay is not competitive for PT employees making it difficult to properly staff. Customers can be very rude and entitled at times.

    Advice to Management

    Higher management could focus more on the positives at store levels.

    Pros

    Pay is good and schedule is pretty flexible

    Cons

    The stress level is up the roof and the store is understaffed.

    Advice to Management

    Hire more employees and keep the store fully staffed at all times. It sucks to run a store understaffed.

    I worked at David's Bridal part-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    You learn about weddings and bridal, great way for you to come up with ideas for your own. Flexible with hours, Great place to work if you are a student or need a pt job, Some of the brides are fun Creativity

    Cons

    Dress code is very strict, You have to wear all black, or nude, gray and white, Outfits can get really boring. You have to sell $250 an hour to really make your 4% commission (may seem easy , not when brides are not buying) They do not hire full time, there are over 30 employees and maybe 4 of them are full time.

    Advice to Management

    Management is known for choosing favorites.

    Pros

    Great environment. Most consultants had a great attitude, it really felt like a family. If you are a good salesperson you can earn very good commission. It was very rewarding to make a bride happy.

    Cons

    It's not easy to make commission in low seasons or with little hours.

    Advice to Management

    Less favoritism.
