I worked at David's Bridal part-time (Less than a year)

Pros

Diverse and Interesting Clientele. Many Skills gained. Fast paced. Enjoyed the job.

Cons

High Employee Turn Over. Hours work against your Income. Only make money between January - April, No paid overtime, No guaranteed lunch breaks.

Advice to Management

Limited resources at the York, PA location (small space, limited fitting rooms, limited gown storage) made the sales process even more difficult. During the busiest times of year, the 1hr per customer time crunch along with lack of space was very overwhelming to most brides. Some could push through and find their gown but many rescheduled or left for a more personal experience.
     The commission structure is ridiculous! Thankfully I worked with a wonderful team, but I felt horrible for ladies who worked at a David's with CSR's that played favorites. Drama in the workplace is not a secret and the CSR controls the client you receive. There was a supposed order of tenure but even managers played favorites and listed beginners above tenured consultants. Your commission was based on your clients; the clients one would receive was based on luck or favoritism. During times of day or year where there is less traffic, consultants, which are only part-time, have to deal with receiving only 8-12hrs a week so that the over-hiring done for "Bridal Christmas" (Jan - April) can stay on the schedule.
     It was hectic and though I loved the job and the clients, at David's Bridal, I was working harder there than at any of my three jobs and making the least amount of money.

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

    Pros

    Great product and idea in theory.

    Cons

    DM's and Store managers are not held accountable, but yet the rest of the staff is. Corporate does not care that bridal consultants are taking on 3-5 brides at a time and that they are not to ask for help.

    Advice to Management

    Try to pull this company out of the budget bridal categorie. Train management better and please hire management who know how to run a large staff.
