    I have been working at Alfred Angelo Bridal full-time

    Pros

    The people who work at Alfred Angelo are amazing. Many have been with the company for over 10 years. The work culture and environment are really fun and the people here really enjoy what they do. They always bring fashion to the forefront and teach wonderful customer service skills. They love the product line because it has great value. The service is always one on one and very fun. The Alfred Angelo team really touches lives with the work they do and you can tell they obtain personal fulfilment.
    The company is in a great place right now, and it is only getting better! There are great growth opportunities because the company really focuses on promoting from within. It's a great place to come to everyday.

    Cons

    The computer systems are old.

    Advice to Management

    1. Continue to invest in technology and people power. The new CEO is great. He is making some awesome changes and focusing on new concept stores.

    Pros

    Great and fun product. Experienced, supportive and positive upper management. Close staff and positive work atmosphere,. Corporate looks to retail for suggestions and input to help better company product and service. Design team is innovative. Company promotes within and develops leadership. Competitive and constant growth. Company is moving forward and product is changing for the better. Great benefits and employee discounts.

    Cons

    Not enough hours in the day. You can get lost in bridal world, time flys! Technology could use upgrading. Need more marketing on social media. Store needs updated look or a timeless layout.

    Advice to Management

    Keep developing your employees they are the growth of your company.

    I worked at Alfred Angelo Bridal part-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Commission certainly makes the hourly pay worth while. Company really does try and invest in each customer as part of their family and will make every effort to accommodate customers.

    Cons

    Management is majorly lacking from the top down at the retail level. They regularly need warm bodies to fill a need, and often times it isn't enough to accommodate the traffic that walks through their doors (primarily on weekends). The store(s) is(are) physically a "boutique" feel but is/are so astronomically small that you may as well forget about having a comfortable space for customer to work especially with their family/friends.

    Advice to Management

    Consider an increase in hourly pay based off performance. I dedicated 4 years to this company, in my multiple years I was proficient in all tasks at the store, met most of my sales goals without issue, received no complaints from customers and still took 3 years to see an increase in hourly pay when new people with no experience were being hired on at a higher pay with no experience. This was known to other employees as I was often responsible for assisting in reporting sales vs payroll reports.

    Opportunities for career investment/advancement are non-existent.

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

    Pros

    Very fun and awesome environment, if you are good at sales you can excel

    Cons

    Hard to help some brides because sometimes the newest styles take forever to come in anything above a 10

    Advice to Management

    Overall good stuff, nothing to report. More weekend incentives would be nice like bonuses and small perks during busy season.

    Pros

    This family owned company really has the best intentions in mind in regards to their customers and employees. How often in retail do you get to work so closely with a person and share in the most emotional purchase of her life? It is a rewarding experience to say the least.

    Cons

    Outdated technology. The company could really put some effort into upgrading systems in their retail stores. They might also benefit from a more updated advertising campaign to drive business.

    I have been working at Alfred Angelo Bridal full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    I have a huge passion for this company. Alfred Angelo was founded in 1933 and is still family owned and operated. This company is continuing to grow stronger and stronger every yr. I have been with Alfred Angelo Bridal for 5yrs now and this is my career, my passion.

    As a manager I have a great support team, district manager is extremely approachable and very much involved in the stores to make our district very successful. We have on going training within our district to keep our talents and skills fine tuned.

    Great opportunity for management as well as stylist.

    Cons

    I believe every company has room for changes and improvements, Alfred Angelo Bridal is defiantly on the right track.

    Advice to Management

    I feel that we finally have a district manager that has walked in the store managers shoes before becoming the district manager, which gives here a better look on how to run the district and lead a successful team.
