Your just a number!!
When I first started working at wed2b it was exciting and every challenge was met with enthusiasm. You were treated as a valued member of the team. But as the years went on so did wed2b s ethos which seemed to change from “ helping to find the dress of their dreams” to “ you must get this dress and also u need, box, bag, hanger , veil, hair piece and everything else that going along with it”!! Girls are pushed to sell at least 5 items to each bride they saw and if they didn’t sell frequently enough they had disciplinary and eventually pushed out!! Once covid hit they had no problems making mass redundancies and losing staff that were more then loyal to them! Not bothering to furlough them ! Now it’s going to open up again they’re hiring more staff!! What a great way to treat people! Don’t bother applying unless u like to be treated as a dogs body!
Bridal Consultant in Gateshead, Tyne and Wear
When I first started, I really thought I had found my dream job. That quickly changed! At first is was fun , the company seemed supportive and we got an unexpected bonus. All these things went out the window very quickly when the company expanded. The amount of pressure on you to sell so many items is unbelievable. You are being forced to sell items to brides they don't need and the training was rubbish. I had more retail and fashion qualifications then any of the management in my store.The management were the main problem, it's like they have something on each other and protect each other. I know of numerous complaints, really serious ones that were just ignored. I was really poorly one evening, ended up in hospital and I got a recorded conversation because I had let the rest of staff down by being off on a Saturday. I had to sign it and it was later filled in by them.I can't begin to explain what went on in that store, people just wouldn't believe it! Staff turnover speaks for itself. Don't do it, it will literally destroy your life!
Wed2B Senior Sales Consultant in Wednesbury
Overall I loved working for this company!! It started my love for bridal and has helped me in the job im in today.The pay is fair as everyone earns the same and no commission, therefore there's no arguments.There's no pressure and you can leave work really feeling like you've achieved something and made a positive change to a brides life.The company/headoffice are very professional and very helpful with staff and customers. A very humble family run company which is lovely to work for.I had a problem with management in the store I worked in. Many staff were leaving due to the same colleague being very demanding, outspoken and overall rude. I had been told to "hurry up"(while with brides or cleaning etc) "stop being a child and grow up" "you cant move up you have no management skills" "your not allowed to take your problems to head office" eye rolls if something wasn't done her way, and even customers had been spoken to badly and made complaints to us in the fitting rooms or gone to HO.It wasn't just myself this had happened to it was several members off staff (who eventually left). When taking the problem to higher management it was told "sort it between yourselves" "maybe shes having a bad day" "just ignore her" "thats who she is" etc etcThe problem didnt get solved and resulted in myself leaving to. Such a shame as the company is amazing and a life long career!

Assistant Manager in United Kingdom
I am currently working at WED2B as Assistant store manager having worked my way up from Bridal Sales Consultant. It’s honestly the best company I’ve ever worked for. They have treated us so well and extremely fairly throughout this difficult period and have stayed in constant contact with everyone to keep us all in the loop. The jobs itself is fantastic and so rewarding and the company is so rewarding also and there’s plenty of opportunity to develop and work you’re way up and take on lots of different projects. There’s no better feeling then being a part of a brides special experience helping her to choose her dress.
