Pros

Working with Brides
Making women feel beautiful in dresses
Commission as an incentive to make you sell

Cons

Management does not tell you how to be better at selling
Cannot call out or take a Saturday off during Bridal Christmas without being treated like a horrible person.

Advice to Management

Invest more time into consultants. When they are not selling figure out why and help them.

    Pros

    The working with excited brides and fun staff can be so rewarding, the experience makes you feel like family. Holidays off in reg. peak season, however forget a lunch break when it is peak season.

    Cons

    Unrealistic expectations, payroll cuts, poor life balance, lies, lies lies---- integrity is not even visible in the organization. I had 4 dms in 2 years there, no support whatsoever, and frankly couldn't wait to leave the company that promised so much in the beginning. It is a very different business, and takes quite a while to learn all of the processes, can be frustrating, and since it is a commissioned environment no one wants to help you.

    Advice to Management

    Cross train staff on all roles, ditch the commission environment, change is good, but 4 dms in 2 years is a little much, lack of consistency was Insane, support your people, don't micromanage them, encourage and grow internally.


  2. Joyful job but at times can be frustrating due to commission standards
