    I worked at Impression Bridal full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Great team, appointments are already set for you as long you close your sales, you'll be top priority for appts on busy days

    Cons

    Low base when moved up to management, potential to make more as a stylist if sales are right

    Advice to Management

    Clear goals and more competitive salary to keep good staff around

    I worked at Impression Bridal full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Worked at the Galleria location nice bridal boutique. Working with brides, fun co workers, good location, nothing else nice about this place

    Cons

    I can write so many bad things about this pathetic family owned company but I will try to be nice. I will start with the simplest but most important ones. 1st there is absolutely no room for growth, pay is not great and stylist commission is almost impossible to achieve. Many upset customers due to merchandise with damage and poor quality control at the end you as the consultant will have to take the blame do to the clueless managers working there.

    Advice to Management

    If you understand the meaning of MANAGEMENT you would hire professionals that can lead a team and handle stressful situations. Advise to owners stay with your wholesale side of bridal and close retail stores

    I worked at Impression Bridal full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Pot lucks, $20 Chinese New Year gift, lack of supervision/micro management, and free gym...nothing else comes to mind. Company pretty much sucks.

    Cons

    Family owned and operated, "business developer" is a 23 year old child with no experience whatsoever and no leadership skills. Very unprofessional from the owner on down. The pay is very poor. Worst corporate environment I have ever experienced. Dogs run freely around the office, urinating on the gowns, the owner is rude, arrogant and unaware of how to properly build and promote a brand...the list goes on.

    Advice to Management

    None. The business can run itself into the ground for all I care.

    I have been working at Impression Bridal part-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    nice dresses but not much pros here. You have time to try on merchandise. Get to work with some nice people other than the managers.

    Cons

    wished i had looked at the profile reviews of company & would not have wasted my time accepted the job. Corporate needs to do a major overhaul of their FLAGSHIP Galleria store. Co-Managers are like a Dumb & Dumber tag team! no growth potential, no respect for employees & no spport from home office ofF Ashley Justin.

    Advice to Management

    Find reliable people who can actually do their job. too many mistakes are made to customers orders and then covered up. There is too much chaos

    No training and rude owners. No room for growth, to many unhappy customers due to defects on merchandise.

    Pros

    Working as a Bridal Stylist at Impression Bridal gives you independence to create your own paycheck. It has one of the highest commission pay for their stylists in the Houston area. Of course, you must work hard in order to make money but if you have a passion for sales and bridal it will be easy for you.

    Cons

    You will help a lot of customers on weekends so be prepared to have shorter breaks on Saturdays and Sundays.
