I have been working at Dillard's full-time for less than a year

Pros

employee discount was great especially when they were having a sale. I picked up a king size comforter for $30

Cons

management didn't care about you, constant push to open credit, and IMPOSSIBLE! daily sales goals. you could come to work everyday on time and help every customer in the department and not make my numbers because it was slow and would get a pay cut regardless of performance as far as coming to work, being on time, and doing any special tasks that were assigned. if there was a "visit" from mr dillard or upper management then all hell would break lose to get your department looking impeccable. there were many days that i left late or came in early and did not even get a thank you. i guess thats what i get for volunteering. when a life event relocated me to TX management refused to transfer me although I gave them longer than two weeks notice and also worked through the holiday season rather than leaving them high and dry when they were already short staffed. i worked in the worst department in the store; the "home" department. when speaking to other employees though it was clear other departments werent much better

Advice to ManagementAdvice

review "quota" card system, respect your employees time, be thankful for the hard work of your employees

    I worked at Dillard's full-time

    Pros

    In general, the company has a great sale at the end of most months. I think as far as sales go, its a favorite of mine as a consumer.

    Cons

    The pay scale, although is set up for you to be successful, after you reach a certain threshold it is impossible for the associates to continue to be successful. The most expensive item they sell in stores is probably a $500 bag. My top selling associate deliberately worked bare minimum because she didn't want to make over a certain amount because once she did, her sph would increase to a rate that was unreasonable with the price point in the department. I personally have experienced racism within the stores, with management. I do not believe the company as a whole is racist but the specific stores I was a manager in it was definitely prevalent. I would not suggest working with this brand no matter what level of experience. There are better brands that supply training, sales development and business culture. In order to receive a company discount you have to apply for the credit card. Ridiculous.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    My advice to management is, even you can do better than this company. So go do it!
