    Former Employee - Sales Associate in Irving, TX

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

    Pros

    Friendly coworkers, good promotional products, meet and interact with lots of diverse people, 25% employee discount, learn a lot about the retail business and get good experience

    Cons

    Poor recognition for accomplishments (substantially exceeding quota), required to aggressively market their credit cards including quotas, sales quotas were unreasonable at times

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Raise pay and expectations of your sales force. Look for professionals who want to excel and build a career in sales, not just glorified temp workers.

    Former Employee - Sales Associate in Boise, ID

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

    Pros

    Co-workers are from all walks of life and genuinely fun to work with.

    Cons

    Store Director could care less if new employees have to be trained every week. Very little department depth.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Wake up and realize you cripple your company with your humiliating credit classes and unrealistic sales goals. Anyone with any advanced education knows these simply cannot be based on prior years' sales.
