    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

    Dillard's pays well, is customer centric, and promotes from within. The cosmetics department was by far my favorite retail position.

    Cons

    The full time holiday hours are difficult to manage if you are a full time student, but the pay makes it worth it.

    Advice to Management

    Continue to encourage engagement through recognition.

    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

    Cons

    Having a quota every time you work. There's times that you fall behind and if you are not making your daily sales, you may get a pay cut Can't get vacation during holidays

    Advice to Management

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

    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.

    I worked at Dillard's part-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    The pay is awesome, when I left Dillards after six months I left with making 15.75 an hour and I started at 13.00 an hour. It is very easy to get the raises if you work in the children's department and if you are generally nice to your customers.

    Cons

    Since you have to make a sales quota daily, you have to deal with the sharks in each and every department, which can be annoying. It is never really a team effort in your department, it is more cut throat and sneaky.
