        Pros

        I had an amazing team at my store and it was amazing to help people find dresses for events they dreamed about their whole lives! As a full time employee, the amount of wellness days you accrued was fantastic too. I was never bored at work and there was always something to do, the job also taught me a lot about management. My fellow managers were great and we helped support each other through stressful times

        Cons

        You were expected to simultaneously do three people’s jobs at once. There was no limit to how many appointments could be made and you had to accommodate way too many people at once. The customers could be absolutely volatile at times and it was incredibly mentally taxing especially in management, I felt like I could never leave work at times even on my days off. If we were well staffed I would say I was paid okay, but since I had to be a manager, stylist, and csr all at once, I feel like I wasn’t compensated properly. You also had to work holidays like Fourth of July and Memorial Day which sort of sucked at times too. Training was also very poor, if I didn’t know how to do something I was asked to reach out to another store.

      EMT

      Hi everyone, I’m nearing the end of the hiring process with two jobs and I’ve received an offer from one. I’ve been trying to hold out for the other one but at this point, I need to accept an offer if I have it. Any advice on how to professionally reach out one last time to try and get answers on the status of a hiring decision?
