    Pros

    Flexible schedule, product is fun

    Cons

    Company expects a lot -- working with two brides at once, giving up every Saturday -- for very little compensation.

    Advice to Management

    Set sales consultants up for success -- not failure.

  3. Great atmosphere, but no training.

    Pros

    The managers at David's Bridal are incredible! They go above and beyond for the employees and customers, and truly care about each individual. They know how to balance a fun environment and hard work.

    Cons

    A con of working at David's Bridal is that there is not much training involved, or at least not at my store. I was kind of thrown onto the floor and didn't know where any of the specific dresses were located, and didn't know how to use the computer system. It took me about a week to get an employee ID to login to the computer. Had to deal with multiple upset clients without knowing what to tell them when they asked questions about different sales and how to track an order.

    Advice to Management

    Keep up the kindness and positivity in the store! It goes such a long way with employees. Begin each new employee on the David's training manual and the training videos for best results.

    Pros

    Fun working in the bridal industry
    Discount on formal wear/accessories
    Flexible Scheduling

    Cons

    Like most retailers, non-commissioned pay and payroll hours are generally low (started at $$9/ hr, about 20 hrs/wk).

    Advice to Management

    Don't play favorites with your staff.

    Pros

    It's a rewarding experience helping brides find their dream dress.

    Cons

    Commission salary based on hours, so if you work a lot of hours and only sell a lot on weekends, you barely make any money worth the hard work and stress of the job.

    Advice to Management

    Be fair with hours. (Don't give new employees lots of closing week day shifts and closing weekend shifts (where the traffic is slow)

    Pros

    Being around happy women getting married and celebrating occasions is very fun.
    It was a bright and cheery place.
    They really enjoy being apart of the planning process for brides.

    Cons

    I didn't like the separation of the bridal consultants to the rest of the employees. Their like a special group. It was uncomfortable at times.

    Advice to Management

    I believe management is doing a good job of creating a everlasting experience and clients truly appreciate that. I think that they should continue doing what their doing.
