    I worked at Dillard's part-time (more than an year)


    They worked with me on my schedule to a point and gave me the option of part-time or full. The pay was better than most part-time jobs in the area. Do your job well, and they will reward you. Great discounts!


    Since you worked on commission, you had a lot of competition among the employees. You better be strong to withstand mean spirited employees and stand your ground with your customers. You have a goal that will be reviewed every month. You get moved among departments frequently, and the atmosphere is very high tension.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Make a better working environment for the employees. Too much pressure placed on employees to compete. I believe the customers are the ones that truly suffer because of this fact.
