Pleasant - better than most department stores.

Customer Service (Current Employee)
Atlanta, GA

I have been working at Von Maur part-time for less than a year

ProsPays time & a half for working on Sunday. Closes at 9:00 pm, even during the Christmas holidays. No crazy working hours (i.e. open 24 hours straight, early morning door buster hours, etc).

ConsThe Tess system for scheduling is ridiculous & cannot take into consideration that you have worked more than 8 days in a row & need a day off. It schedules very odd lunch/dinner breaks.

Advice to Senior ManagementMost managers were floor sales people and were promoted rapidly (within 2-3 months) from when they started. This is a pro & con. A lot of their managers are inexperienced at leadership. Just because you can sell does not mean that you are equipped to manage others.

Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend – I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company

Don't Drink the Kool Aid

Department Manager (Former Employee)

I worked at Von Maur full-time for more than a year


Pros: As someone with 20 years retail experience-No Pros. There are too many… Cons: Too many cons to list. Just read all the reviews-they give an accurate portrayal of this company. If you want to feel like… Advice to Senior Management: Store/floor managers need to get off the power trip they are on and realize they are screwing… No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company… More
