Working as a sales associate at Dillards

Mens Sales Associate (Former Employee) Tulsa, OK

ProsDepending upon your asm, you are usually rewarded for your efforts in sales and getting credit accounts applied for. My asm was a prince among men, so I was always richly rewarded for my efforts and attendance too. It takes that salesperson mentality of course
and you have to be very serious about getting the sale. The pay is good, if you keep your sales up. It is supposed to be a "team" effort, but the competition makes that nearly impossible most of the time. I enjoyed my stay there and if it were not for a job offer I simply could not refuse, I would still be there. It was difficult for me to leave.

ConsUnfortunately it does pit you against your fellow associates for sales and can get ugly at times, if you let it. That is probably the worst thing about it. Not very good for making friends and such. Sales per hour is what it is all about, along with showing up for work everyday.

Advice to Senior ManagementPerhaps find some way of actually getting people to work as a team without losing your sales and such.

Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend

    Gotta love retail....

    AREA SALES MANAGER (Former Employee) Tampa, FL

    I worked at Dillard's full-time for more than 5 years


    Pros: If you love retail, don't mind getting poked with sharp sticks, and have a knack… Cons: Bully environment on the store side and the corporate side...you can not escape the level of ineptitude no matter where you go in… Advice to Senior Management: Cutting salaries and jobs may help your stock value, but it is a poor way to run a company and keep good talent.… No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company… More

    Great pay, burns you out.

    Selling Specialist (Current Employee) Memphis, TN

    I have been working at Dillard's full-time for more than 3 years


    Pros: The pay is the best out of any other retailer.… Cons: No opportunity for advancement unless you suck up to managers. Because the company isn't hiring full- time employees anymore, for every one associate that quits,… Advice to Senior Management: Learn to promote your hard workers so they can recruit and train more sales people like them. Especially… Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend More
