Seamstress Reviews

Q: What is it like working as a Seamstress?

Seamstress in Provo:
"Disorganized."
Pros: Being a seamstress allows for flexibility in hours.
Cons: Where I work the owner of the bridal shop does not communicate with her employees well. Training was minimal and she never laid out clear expectations. Because of this I have felt losthe when it comes to how routine operations work at this shop. It is very disorganized.
