    I have been working at David's Bridal part-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    I absolutely love working at David's Bridal. The environment is always positive and who doesn't love helping a bride find her perfect dress. Hours are flexible. Managers are amazing. I really feel like I am growing at David's.

    Cons

    Part-time jobs depend on how many other CSRs there are so hours vary week to week. I wish I worked more.

    Advice to Management

    Continue to love what you do and encourage your employees to strive to be the best.

    Pros

    Everyone brings food in on Saturdays so that's nice since the day is so busy.
    25% discount

    Cons

    Sometimes stressful with brides and their families
    People don't always seem to understand you have more than one bride

    I have been working at David's Bridal part-time

    Pros

    David's bridal has many pros. Helping a client find the perfect wedding or special occasion dress is a lot of fun and is personally rewarding! Sharing in their special moment is both emotional and uplifting. Usually busy and the day goes by quickly!

    Cons

    The training is non existent. Hours of reading and watching videos on an iPad is not real training. Apparently, they don't mind that the majority of their sales team is inept and unprepared. If the company actually had a professional trainer to educate the new associates, sales would improve dramatically and so would customer satisfaction.

    Advice to Management

    Read the above information and hire professional trainers! Educate your associates! Both veterans and new employees need basic training. Smile, greet customers, be polite, use suggestive selling, diplomacy, and the correct language when describing products and services. Pick a store, try using a professional trainer and see the difference! Sales and customer satisfaction would go through the roof! Your welcome!

    Pros

    Helping brides find that perfect dress. A great job if you don't want many hours and not worried about marking a lot of money.

    Cons

    Hours
    Management
    Only Part-Time (Management Is Only Full-Time)
    Under Staffed
    This is not a job that you will get many hours at. You make above minimum wage, but worth the little hours, not very helpful.

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

    Pros

    The work is rewarding and it's a great position for a beginner in sales which will boost your resume. The discount is great, my manager was extremely helpful and hardworking and the environment was upbeat and positive.

    Cons

    Hours are inconsistent and we're cut deeply which is why I left. The pay was low and commission goals were extremely difficult to meet especially with a long slow season in bridal.

    Advice to Management

    Make sure to support your staff and train thoroughly. Having my manager's support was extremely helpful and contributed greatly to my success

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

    Pros

    Management was great! Everyone could improve in their own way, but for the most part, teamwork ALWAYS made the dream work!

    Co-workers we AMAZING!!! I absolutely loved each and every one of them!! ❤

    There were multiple opportunities to voice opinions, share ways to make business and customer service better, and work schedules were flexible.

    Cons

    Floor layout and store location were terrible. I believe that business could be waayyy better if the location and staging of the store were improved.

    Pay rate is totally unacceptable. For the amount of work that goes into each position (especially CSR), pay rates MUST go up in order to improve employee retention and morale.

    Everyone needs to be on one accord. If the head is not right, the body cannot function properly. Maybe management should have more training (Start at the very top).

    Advice to Management

    My advice would be to create a better training plan for all employees. There should be more time to shadow in all departments as well as learning correct verbiage to use with customers.

    Before your customers, comes your employees. Make sure that your employees are well taken care of. If your employees are treated right, your customers will be treat right.

    Always keep the mindset of a student. Be willing to learn, regardless of your position.

    Finally, be sure to check your own attitudes. Customer service can be difficult, but it's much easier when you greet someone with a smile.
