Dillard's expects you to meet your quota's or your gone

Sales Associate (Current Employee) Toledo, OH

Pros1.If you meet your sales goals and work hard Dillard's is an ok place to work. Retail is not for everyone.
2.If you are competitive and goal oriented you will do well working here.
3.25% Employee Discount, why shop anywhere else? Merchandise is top notch.
4.New employees receive one time 50% off anything they need for work.
5.It is important to gain good rapport with your customers and staff this establishes a bit of loyalty, so be likable.
6.Many insensitive programs to earn extra bucks, do diligence pays off.
7.If you work a holiday you get paid time and 1/2 and earn another day off with pay.

Cons1.You must have thick skin, competition is fierce, and turn over is high. Management is always looking for the next best thing to replace you.
2.Having a sales goal means you better reach your goals or your out. This means learn your merchandise and open credit apps.
3.Vacation is earned by number of hour worked, for every hour you work you get 1/2 hour of vaca time.Become informed.
4.Being on your feet constantly is hard on the body, so be sure to use that 50% one time discount to buy good shoes.
5.No vaca allowed between Nov 15th-Jan 15th. Prime selling time. No fun with family. You'll be missed at the family reunions.
6.Benefits are expense and not very good. If you have options with a spouse or parent opt out for now.

Advice to Senior ManagementReevaluate how you pay your Business managers, and don't make them sell, this is unfair to them and the sales associates. Treat them well and they will give you their loyalty.

Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend – I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company

    Decent pay for retail, but a very toxic environment.
