Current Employee - Sales Associate in Las Vegas, NV

I have been working at Dillard's part-time (less than an year)

Pros

25% employee discount on merchandise after 30 days
Opportunity, free business cards which is professional and fancy for professional selling to your clientele, gold name tag
View your own schedule, quota, and other items on Dillard's intranet
Longevity of employees with great retention
Too many employees standing around doing nothing, Work rules unenforced
One hour lunch, nearby food court in mall locations
50% discount on "graduation" day, which is 3 weeks after training period
Higher starting hourly rate versus other retailiers, myself given a good rate with my experience
Sales per Hour goal can be motivational
Zero + Zero program where you can earn a paid day off if you are always on time in one quarter of the year
Given Sales per Hour goal and Raise goal that can be motivational to know you can get a raise after your first 3 months of work
Massive learning potential, no micro-management

Cons

SPH- Sales per Hour goal can be stressful.
Old and Slow POS, point of sale register computer system that needs updating
Slow handheld scanners
No program for individuals with bachelor's degrees
Management has been too lenient thus far and has not caught associates standing around talking to each other, using their cell phone, and eating which are all agains tthe work rules

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Promote people with Bachelor's degrees automatically or more easily. Have a program for people with bachelor's degrees and so many years retail experioencel, they should automatically qualify and be full time at a pro-rated rate automatically. Have a few less people on the floor, there are too many employees standing around doing nothing which doesn't seem cost effective. Update your Point of Sale Register system please.
