    Former Employee - Sales Associate in Irving, TX

    I worked at Dillard's full-time for more than a 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 Cedar Park, TX

    I worked at Dillard's full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    The 25% discount and the sales with the additional off.
    Getting first pick of the items that go on sale.
    High pay at first.

    Cons

    The BULLIES and fights and getting screamed at by co workers for sales!!!
    Higher pay at first but 90% get a paycut because sales goals are too high.
    ONLY thing that matters is sales. Not how hard you work. And it's usually a few doing all the work and the rest taking the sales which means they will make more than you.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Not that management cares at all but the sales are there even if you got rid of the super aggressive mean BULLIES!!! No one should be scared to go into work and you should care!!
