    Pros

    Flex hours working with the young crowd is more relaxing as they don't worry as much for sales. The 25%discount omw!

    Cons

    You will get hit on by other male customers. Lots of male on male. It's annoying but comes with the territory

    Advice to Management

    Please have better sales. It's not the sales person fault if the customers don't want to buy. You must have better sales.

    Pros

    Some of the management staff acts concern about the work staffs when upper management is not on their backs..

    Cons

    Dillard's as a whole cares little about their work staffs, they care about the bottom line of profit and what bonus managers will be receiving at the end of the year.

    Advice to Management

    It is the dedicated staff that works hard to keep Dillard's going and it would be nice to show appreciation

    Pros

    Great pay Possibility to get a higher pay Holiday pay after 6 months Earn vacation hours after 6 months Get a paycheck every Thursday

    They are great, but they have to pressure us to sell

    Pros

    Good base salary No limit to income with commission based incentives Work smart, not hard most of the time You are in charge of your own destiny

    Cons

    Lots of busy work (polishing glass, stockroom work, and preparing for corporate visits which doesn't help you reach your sales goal) High turnover of staff Most managers do not look out for their employees Everybody has their own agenda Constant worry about job security isn't fun Job overall gets stale and boring, Built solely on self motivation

    Advice to Management

    Your shoe department should have 2 dock members assigned to help take care of shoe stockroom and department as a whole. And do better at motivating associates, most would be more efficient if they felt apart of the business as a whole.
