Pros

At David's you pretty much "own" your own business. You get a base salary plus commission. So this allows you to make you own paycheck. You have many friendly people and constantly get to interact with many customers. The store manager at my location is the best by far that i have ever had. She understands things happen in life and coaches you to be the best that you can be. Plus the discount is great! Far more than the average 10%. The company also offers health care that is very affordable.

Cons

Favoritism is often shown a lot. You basically have to work every weekend and during bridal Christmas (January-March) you are not allowed to take off any time at all. You are expected to reach certain monetary goals, even in slow season, and will be written up/possibly fired if you do not reach those goals. You are often reprimanded as well if you do not push the company credit card on customers or have a certain amount of customers sign up for the card.

Advice to Management

With the new management in place, I can only give it time to see what changes are going to happen. Please cut the favoritism though. You have some really hard workers that have your back and often are overlooked because they aren't a certain size/weight or the highest gross seller int he store.

    Pros

    Great personal and professional support system, help from management whenever needed, competitive.

    Cons

    Very difficult to promote within company from sales to management, not enough support from regional management to consultants.

    Advice to Management

    I think the corporate ladder is incredibly visible to all employees at David's. It's just seems barely out of reach for consultants in the management training program.
