    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.

    I have been working at David's Bridal full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Very Friendly staff
    The best store manager I have worked with in my 18 years of retail experience.
    Getting to know our customers on a first name basis and developing a positive relationship and experience for them to come back and see us just to say hello.
    A company that is family oriented, makes you feel at home every time you come to work.
    Exceptional training
    Advancement from within the company
    I learn something new every day

    Cons

    it can be stressful but I believe you will have that at any job. If you aren't used to fast paced and taking time for the details than this isn't the job for you. I really don't have any cons for working for David's Bridal.

    Advice to Management

    Keep giving feedback that helps us grow.
    Motivate, Communicate
    Keep recognizing all good work
    Stay positive

    I have been working at David's Bridal full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Excellent pay and benefits. Great holidays, it is not like normal retail, it is slow during the holidays and you get Christmas eve and Christmas day off.

    There are great growth opportunities, the company really focuses on promoting from within. District Managers are hard on you but they make you stronger as a leader. I noticed a lot of consultants complain about how they did not get enough training or the pay was low...we had high performing team members at our store so it just depends on the store management team as well as the selling ability of the consultant. Some people get it right away and the love it, some people don't. In this business if you don't love what you do, you wont make money.

    As a company, David's Bridal is always trying to think of newer, better ways of doing things. They are constantly trying to better themselves and always listen to the team. This was by far one of my most favorite jobs, I loved what I did.

    Cons

    Retail hours
    Stores can use a face lift
    Avoid high volume stores, they are notorious for providing the worst customer service and my experience is that people hate working at high volume stores.

    Advice to Management

    They just got a new CEO and she is great. She is making some awesome changes and focusing on new concept stores.

    Cons

    They went out of the Photography Business

    Advice to Management

    Wish you had concentrated on the few good photographers you had and let the rest go. it might have meant turning some work away but you would still have this division.

    Pros

    So much fun! Everyday was something new to look forward to. There's a lot of energy there & for someone who likes to stay busy, it was a great job. It felt like the day flew by but looking back, you accomplished a lot within a few hours.

    Cons

    Brides can be moody and wedding day is something people look forward to their whole lives, it can be very stressful if something goes wrong and working at Davids bridal you have to be compassionate but have thick skin.

    Exciting to the one to assist with gown selection, and fabulous when "the" gown is selected. Training is a continuous and ongoing process

    Cons

    30 minute breaks, even when working a full-time day
