    I worked at Brides by Demetrios full-time

    Pros

    Working with the brides and bridal parties. The salon was beautifully set up compared to what other salons looked like. The medical benefit coverage wasn't as bad.

    Cons

    The manager is a control freak and micro manages the salon. She was very unprofessional and meddled into employees personal business. Management also provoked situations with brides in return brides did not want to deal with her or conduct business when she was present in salon and in leu of that brides complained on bridal websites such as theknot. Caused physical harm onto me as a consultant and has shouted at fellow colleagues like they were children in school. I am relieved that I do not work for this company because this was a life changing work experience and not for the better. The only thing I learned was to not allow a manager throw their weight around all because of their title. When a colleague quit suddenly and obviously was foul play with the reasons of her exiting the company hr from corporate visited salon and playfully shrugged off the situation. No one was safe to say what was wrong with the salon because they felt threatened by the manager. A horrible way of handling employee issues. Also products did not arrive on time because company does not pay bills on time. Had to lie about the wedding dates to get dresses on time.

    Advice to Management

    Listen to your employees in the salons and don't sarcastically brush off concerns. Change the way you conduct business and fire managers who do not deliver great customer service. It reflects on the business and sales. Get the product delivered on time. Ultimately look from within and don't just give a pat on the back for people who abuse their power.
