    I have been working at David's Bridal full-time for less than a year

    Pros

    Everyday I get to go to our stores and share in what may be our brides’s most joyous life event. I love recruiting and working with like-minded people who are amazing at what they do. Everyone deserves to be the center of attention and feel beautiful and we get to deliver that experience. This is what I get paid to do. Loving it!

    Cons

    Honestly nothing negative to report. We always have room to improve and that is why I am here.

    Pros

    Can become bridal stylist. Management is great. Customers can be fun.

    I worked at David's Bridal part-time for less than a year

    Pros

    I loved finding formal dresses and helping people feel beautiful for whatever special event they were going to. I had a good manager/coworkers. Flexible hours (apart from the mandatory weekend hours). Good environment to work in for the most part. Decent pay for a part time job. Ability to make commission (kind of)

    Cons

    No full time hours for non managerial positions. No advancement. Nearly impossible to make commission as a dress specialist (DS’s are unable to sell bridal dresses which are by far the most expensive things and therefore the easiest to make commission off of) Corporate was really messed up while I was there (my store manager was fantastic despite it <3)

    I worked at David's Bridal part-time for less than a year

    Pros

    Great Managers that believed in rewarding with positive reinforcement to keep morale high, felt like a family. Helping a bride find her perfect gown was a wonderful experience.

    Cons

    Hard to make commission based on the formula. You could have 2 goods days and 1 bad day and it would prevent you from making commission. Body aches and sore feet from being up all day and carrying the heavy gowns.
