Current Employee - Assistant Store Manager in Los Angeles, CA
Current Employee - Assistant Store Manager in Los Angeles, CA

Pros

Not really anything different then other retailers - may be a little bit more customer oriented. Good medical insurance. You get 2 weeks vacation, and 3 weeks after 5 years of service. You don't usually have to be at work before 6am or stay after midnight, which is also a plus. 95% of associates are fun, easy going people. Pay is average for retail sector. Good job environment overall.

Cons

Poor communication within the company. Regional management only comes to the store to tell you how smart they are, and how stupid you are. Hours are long (I average 12 hrs days, sometimes 13.) The funny part is that you are scheduled to work only 10 hours, but the workload is so heavy you have stay later. the best part - you are PAID ONLY FOR 10, since the overtime is not approved!!! Company polices create a lot of misunderstanding, and you are supposed to know every answer. Have to climb up the ladder 20-30 times a day and carry heavy boxes.

Advice to Management

Please give stores more payroll. Communicate with the stores clearly. Get quality procuct for the customer. Don't forget to thank people who work that hard for you.

    Current Employee - Sales Associate/Bridal Consultant in San Marcos, CA
    Disapproves of CEO

    Pros

    I've learned a lot about all kinds of products we carry in the store and a lot I would have never have known without working there. They treat their customers with respect and go out of their way to make them happy, something a lot of places don't do these days

    Cons

    No incentives for meeting goals in the store. They have all these goals that they expect Bridal Consultants to make and they give no rewards or incentives to consistently meet the goals. They just keep throwing out numbers and what you're supposed to do, but don't provide time or enough feedback for you to correct it.

    Advice to Management

    Higher pay for becoming a bridal consultant when you're supposed to know every item in the store. Incentives for consistently meeting goals.
