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

    Pros

    You make some good friends.

    Cons

    Everyone works against the other, the department manager's even have sale's goals they have to make. You have to make phone calls and bring customers in and meet a certain number. A heavy turnover...even managers are fired. You will rarely find someone who has worked there over two years, as no one can meet their goals.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Have a little more respect for the hard work your employees give to you.

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

    Pros

    Health insurance if working more than 32 hours a week. Normal business operating hours aren't bad.

    Cons

    Long work days- sometimes shifts could be 12 hours, 3 or for days a week. Ability to meet sales goals for salary are unrealistic depending on which department you work in. Small if no real opportunity for advancement. Can't move to a different department unless you exceed sales goals for a year, so if you start in a department that just doesn't ever meet goals, you can't change. Not allowed to sit down at all. No form of advertising except print that will generate sales.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Have the ability to understand how some departments (which vary depending on geographiocal location of store) don't get the foot traffic like other departments and should be adjusted accordingly.
