    I worked at Alfred Angelo Bridal full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    The people, the quality products, making a lasting impression on future brides. I loved 95% of my job. The 5% was little things that didn't matter.

    Cons

    Disconnect and communication problems between corporate level and store level. Things were old or not used in the best way. The company was slow to advance.

    Advice to Management

    You should have tried to help your customers until the end instead of screwing the customers and employees. I was so disappointed how the last day on the job went down and no notice. There could have been some great things to come away from this if the CEO and company tried harder, did better, worked smarter.

    Pros

    Great job, fun to help brides find their gowns. Hours are good as well - no later than 8 PM weeknights.
    Awesome hardworking Store Manager. She works hard for her employees. She always had our backs.

    Cons

    Pay - not high enough for the intensity and responsibility entailed in this job.

    Advice to Management

    Increasing the pay scale will help you find professional people to hire. This will keep down the turnover rate for employees. The more professional, the better sales for the company.

    Pros

    The company is great and you really value their dresses since they are so beautiful! The managers are always sweet and will always help with the sales which helps you with your commissions.

    Cons

    Pay isn't that great but if you work hard you can make a lot off commissions. You have to deal with brides and their mothers or rude family members.

    Pros

    --being surrounded by beautiful dresses all the time!
    -- autonomy! they give you the tools to make your sale, but leave nailing it to you! This is great-- I've had other jobs where management was breathing down my neck and it sucked.
    -- I had a GREAT team!!

    Cons

    --The girls I worked with were nice, but very clique-ish.... They respect you if you act like you're working hard, and will cut you if you don't.
    -- Brides and bridal parties can be brutal. you have to REALLY love what you are doing to be successful as a bridal stylist, particularly because
    --The pay SUCKS. 4% commission, and you don't even see it until the dresses are made and arrive to the store....which can take up to 5 months.

    Advice to Management

    In store management-- be a little more welcoming and do a better job hiring people that care and the turnover rate probably wouldn't be so high.

    I worked at Alfred Angelo Bridal part-time

    Pros

    Lots of freedom to do your job your way and build relationships with your customers, general positive atmosphere

    Cons

    customers can be extra demanding because it's a wedding dress; customer service is #1, even if that means staying an extra hour and a half until a girl is done prancing around playing dress-up

    Advice to Management

    Continue cultivating an atmosphere of collaboration; commission based sales can get catty if everyone's not careful to avoid stepping on toes. And calm down on the "you have to be covered to the elbows" rule, at least in Florida in the summer.
