    Pros

    Many roads for advancement, great pay, fun environment, great discounts. You are in control of own business, no "red tape" for corporate. Strong managers. Family-like environment.

    Cons

    Training is sometimes lacking. Takes 10 years to earn 3 weeks of vacation. You have to be willing to move anywhere on the drop of a dime to be promoted into upper management.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    I love Dillard's but a few more perks would be appreciated.

    Pros

    It's a great way to earn money, especially without a degree. If one stays positive, does research on how to sell their products better and plan out event. They will do really well regardless of personality type.

    Cons

    It's sales, people can be unfair

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    They do need to spend more time training employees.

    Pros

    A great work atmosphere that you can look forward to everyday. The people are great (like family). I love my job at Dillard's!

    Cons

    If you're looking for a job to just ring up customers, this is not the job for you. Building clientele relationships, and wardrobing customers to help them look and feel their best is what it's all about. Anyone can just ring up customers, but we truly offer service and assistance in a professional retail atmosphere that highlights brands and fashion. All this is done through engaging our customers, and providing them with the highest level of service that keeps them coming back to their favorite department store.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    I love that corporate executives listen to the needs of our store, and makes decisions to improve merchandise assortments, and adding brands that are high fashion resulting in an exciting shopping experience for our guests.
