Great job if you dont have a life
Sales Associate (Former Employee), Kennesaw, GASeptember 18, 2014
Pros: selling dresses
Cons: no health care, pay is horrible, drama
I think i would have loved this job more if i actually wasnt a parent. they dont understand having kids and they dont work with you on your schedules. Other then that selling dresses is fun but the pay is for someone who lives at home with mommy and daddy and doesnt have bills.

Junior Stylist (Former Employee), Dallas, TXSeptember 15, 2014
Pros: gatherings and schedule
I always met my quota at the end of the week. I learned to have more patience and always talk with the customers. My co-workers always helped me and taught me how to get the job done quick and easy. The hardest part would be trying to help a customer fit in a dress. Most enjoyable are also potlucks and gatherings outside of work.

Stayed for Coworkers and Customers (some of them)
Wedding Consultant (Former Employee), Milpitas, CASeptember 14, 2014
Pros: commission
Cons: commission
I enjoyed coming in for work in the time i was there. I stayed for closely 2 years until another job opportunity came by. This type of retail is not for everyone, depending on the management, I see new hires lasting less than a month. Typically, they hire a whole bunch of them and in 3 months, I only see 2 stay for more than their probation period.

there – more... are times where i find myself ripping my hair out and crying, but you learn to just deal and wash your hands off the situation. Brides can be brutal when told the wrong information or given bad customer service. Just be honest with them and be real with them. They will understand, or at least respect you for the fact you told them what's up.

You build thick skin and patience the longer you stay. The coworkers I have come across are now one of really good friends. I am happy that I 'survived.' – less

I enjoyed working there. My favorite park was helping the future brides pick out their gown and/or accessories. All my co workers were like family to me.

loved the job
Bridal stylist (Former Employee), Beaverton, ORSeptember 3, 2014
Pros: commission
Cons: sometimes no breaks
a typical day would be to greet and meet my bride, give her a tour of our stores and show her what we have, get to know her a little better. see what style of gown she was looking for and help her with brides maids, mother of the bride, and flower girls. everyday was something new learned to be a bit more patient and not so fast paced all the time. – more... management could've been a little more professional, they constantly changed our schedules mid week with no notification, among other things. coworkers were great, became close to them since we were there so much. the hardest part of the job was having to manage time and attention between multiple customers. the most enjoyable part of the job was to see the bride light up when she found her gown. – less

Not that great..
Service Supervisor (Former Employee), Spring Valley, NYSeptember 1, 2014
Cons: upper management micromanaged, the pay, not a fun environment
I didn't feel as if this was an enjoyable company to work for. The managers are always under a lot of stress which caused a workplace that had tension. Barely did any team building activities or events.

Too Much Work, Not Enough Pay
Stylist (Wedding consultant) (Current Employee), Lithonia, GAAugust 27, 2014
Cons: short breaks, no benefits
This job was amazing about a year ago, before they took away the chance for an employee to qualify themselves for commission on their paycheck (stylists used to get paid hourly AND commission based). The amount of work done does not measure up to how much anyone is paid. I personally am a stylist but am changing jobs; I used to love what I did, now – more... it's a pain in the butt. The only way to bonus and get extra commission money on your check is if EVERY STYLIST in the store goals beyond their quota. But if 2/3 hit their goal, nobody bonuses. The environment is fun (most days), but you're not paid enough for the amount of work that's required. – less

A customer service workplace
Customer Service Representative (Current Employee), Champaign, ILAugust 21, 2014
Pros: friendly work area, lunch provided at beginning of each year
Cons: micro managing from manager
This job you're dealing with people all day. You don't just sit behind the cash register and not talk to people, we work with every customer that walks through the door. We talk to them, get them in and out of dresses, answer questions til we get them at the cash register. The hardest part of the job would be when someone isn't satisfied. When they – more... had a problem that we couldn't fix. My co-workers are hard working and very friendly. The most enjoyable is being with people who are there to have a good experience and we try to keep it that way. – less

Fun workplace
Bridal Consultant (Former Employee), Taylor, MIAugust 20, 2014
Pros: happy brides, fast paced and 30 minute breaks.
A typical day included brides excited about their wedding day and needing us as bridal consultants to assist them in finding the bridal gown for their special day. Many customers came in for other things like prom gowns, Sweet 15 and Mother of the bride or groom dresses. It was a very positive experience.

Creating amazing experiences
Bridal consultant/Dress specialist (Former Employee), Saint Peters,MoAugust 15, 2014
Pros: being a part of a special day for someone and making them feel beautiful
Cons: works off commission
I loved working for David's Bridal. It was a amazing feeling being part of someones special day weather it was prom or their wedding. I was invited by brides that I didn't receive commission for their wedding to attend their special days. The only reason I left the company was because I needed consistency in my pay and working off commission you can – more... not receive that and there was no advancement option in our store. – less

sucky place
customer service rep (Former Employee), hoover,alabamaAugust 13, 2014
Pros: nothing
Cons: everything
David's Bridal has been a nightmare. When i began working there we had no store manager, When we finally got one she left after only being there for 4 months because they treated her like she was nothing.our next store manager turned out to be a shady person that had it out for everyone that worked there that was not her friend and the district manager – more... did nothing but agree with the shady stuff she was doing. it was so bad that i am now contacting lawyers because she has broke so many laws in the short period of time that she has been there. DO NOT EVER WORK FOR DAVID"S BRIDAL IN HOOVER!!!!!!!!! – less

There is nothing like playing dress up all day.
Bridal Consultant/Stylist (Former Employee), Fairview Heights, ILAugust 10, 2014
Pros: my brides!!!!!!!!!! there is something about helping a bride during the life changing event.
Cons: was injured and did not that the paper work to keep my job.
I wait for my bridals hand and foot. I love my brides like there are my own. I will greet my bridal at the door. Give her a tour of the store. Take notes of things she is impressed by and not so impressed by. Note: HERE BODY TYPE. Write down her dates the styles she wants, colors she is working with and her dont's. To sum it up. I will dress her from – more... head to toe. Finding the dress of her dreams. Doing the same from her bridesmaids. – less
