Advice to Management

Follow your own advice!!! Don't tell us NOT to do something and go behind our back and do the EXACT same thing that you were complaining not to do. Your the leader so be one!!!! STOP discounting merchandise for unnesscessary reasons we need the full payment from these brides we are NOT a discount retailer.

    Pros

    Company paid benefits for full time is great! The product is beautiful and of great quality, also in a great price range. Everybody is very friendly, even Demetrios himself. The pay is decent, but not for the amount of hours worked.

    Cons

    Procedures vary from location to location. Not very much consistency, and brides do not need to be lied to because something goes wrong. The staff in encouraged to get all bridesmaids dresses ordered 4-6 months before the wedding date, but yet they do not pay the vendors correctly so there are constantly holds on accounts causing these items to come in weeks before the wedding. Even after constant follow up it still takes weeks to get corporate to respond or release these items causing frustration on both the staff and the bridal party. This company could greatly benefit by hiring an outside source to restructure the business to make it more successful. They are very comfortable in their roles, and are loyal to the family aspect of things even if it is not the greatest fit for them.

    Advice to Management

    Listen to your managers! We come to you for help because we need it, and when there is no valid response, it is frustrating. Also keep a full management team. It will make your business more profitable, and keep everything running smoothly.

    I worked at Brides by Demetrios full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Brides were sometimes fun to work with, if you enjoyed your employees that could be fun as well

    Cons

    Unorganized from day one, had to lie to brides all the time, was at a location that closed all of a sudden and could not tell brides we were closing and were told to still take orders, cold calling the same list of brides weekly

    Advice to Management

    Corporate needs help
