I worked at David's Bridal full-time (More than a year)

Pros

Really happy place to work! Brides are usually super excited about picking out their dress. There is always some type of sale to help the customer be able to pay for their dress.

Cons

The commission rate is a little crappy. If you don't make a certain (high) amount then you don't commission at all and it's like you are getting paid minimum wage for your hours and you don't get paid at all for what you did sell.

    I have been working at David's Bridal part-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    The wedding industry is fun and I enjoy helping girls find their dream dress.

    Cons

    Pay is very low. Management is very demanding. I feel like the customer is put under a lot of pressure to buy rather then given an enjoyable encouraging experience.

    Advice to Management

    Training was brief and did not fully prepare me to perform well.

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

    Pros

    Meeting people. Constant change. Positive motivation always present.

    Cons

    Hard and fast paced work. Short breaks (if you can get them [dependent on customer flow]). Low pay (consultants: minimum wage+commission if personal sales goal was met for the week. alterations: starting 8.50, raise to 9 at 6 months, individuals got paid differently)

    Advice to Management

    Too many positions are part-time. Make more full time positions and people will stay. The part-time positions have too much turnover because of low pay and no benefits.
