Former Employee - Assistant Buyer  in  Saint Petersburg, FL
Former Employee - Assistant Buyer in Saint Petersburg, FL

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

Pros

Store discounts
People at work are great

Let's go ahead with the cons...
Technology is from the 80s.

Cons

No training! They just throw you in there and expect you to figure it out... when you're dealing with all of their dollars!
Many times the buyer & the assistant haven't a clue what's going on because of the high turnover. People in the office refer it to a "revolving door" with the people in and out.
Vacation is pretty terrible. Holiday.. nonexistent. ONE day for Christmas. One day for thanksgiving. Labor day but not memorial day. Expected to work in stores every saturday christmas-thanksgiving plus black friday AND CHRISTMAS EVE! This isn't supposed to be a retail hour job! Not to mention no compensation for all these days in the store!
