    Pros

    If you like keeping it "'all in the family"or among their favorite subordinates you will do swimmingly. Make sure to check out the family earnings!!

    Cons

    Demeaning, abusive, promote problem people vs confronting the issue, do nothing to prevent harrasment, bias is preferred, nepotism at an unhealthy level. As a manager poor treatment of associates and customers is an expectation and other behavior isn't tolerated.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    You continue to promote and reward abusive and demeaning upper management. There should be an external review. People are NOT disposable, nor should sexual or mental abuse be accepted practice.

    Former Employee - Commissiones Sales Associate in McAllen, TX

    I worked at Dillard's full-time (less than a year)

    Pros

    25% Discount! hiding merchandise for lower sales. if u work in shoes its more easy to hide what u want till the lowest markdown, they give u 8 tardies to use when ever u want but if u go over u get let go, and they also give u i think 4 absance as well. so if the store is slow and ur not making sales u can use a tardy and leave, also if u meet ur goals they give u a 3% raise every six months but if u dont meet goals they also lower ur pay by 3%.

    Cons

    No over-time for commission associates witch is illegal, i had to contact my local attorney general, you get fired if u dont make ur sales after 6 months, My local store Managers gossip with employees.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    my advice goes to the dillard twins that took over the company its not a good practice of firing employees every six months for not making sales, u guys should care about ur turn over rate and stop performing illegal practices with commission associate's. who knows how long u guys have not been paying them over time its such a shame that u think u can do that. the law is the law no matter what u make and employee agree to.
