    I worked at Von Maur full-time (less than a year)

    Pros

    Good Discount, normal hours, good floor managers 1 & 2nd. Accomodating and caring of SOME Associates.

    Cons

    Dress code needs revised shouldn't have to freeze or be sweating in front of customers. Some of the commissioned depts with higher commision steal sales from others thinking that every customer is theirs. Unprofessional department managers who will get on you for things and then you catch them doing it as well and not setting the example.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Talk to each employee in each department as to any questions/concerns, trust me you will find out things you had no clue about.

    I have been working at Von Maur full-time (more than 5 years)

    Pros

    No crazy holiday hours, 1 weekend off per month and sometimes an additional Sunday. Safe enviroment and great co-workers.

    Cons

    Well, as everyone has said, there is a standard for executive management. Young young and young. Experience and personality not required. My store has one executive who is mature and is effective and hard working, they just had a golden opportunity to promote another mature employee to an executive spot but chose their usual path of young and inexperienced. Wish us all luck.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Their is no point.

    Pros

    Great group of employees who love what they do and love service... Customers expect great service and attention.

    Cons

    Not in touch with the current trends, brands, technology and popular culture of this century. Policies are vague, rules and regulations are inconsistent and made up according to management's personal hangups. Favoritism with younger work force.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Stop spying on your employees and taking hours off the floor to interrogate and document, petty mistakes, behavior. Get rid of the tattle tale culture and focus on market share, current trends, making numbers and sales techniques. Girls right out of business degree cannot manage. Stop picking on valued employees who can maybe teach you a thing or two.

    Pros

    Good Pay, no real holiday hours, insurance, clean working place, pretty much paid to stand around...Good employee discount..

    Cons

    Very old fashion in multiple areas of the company.. One write-up stops you from getting a promotion regardless of the good work you may have done of the time you have been employed.. They like to use the phrase "the grey area" this mean since a lot of things are not in black and white, it allows them to enforce unwritten rules whenever they want..

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Management should be more in touch with their associates and not play favorites. Promotion should be based on experience and not your just like by management.. Von Maur needs to pro-active than re-active.. Their should be no reason a person of color should have to file a lawsuit to get a promotion for him to move up..

    I worked at Von Maur part-time (more than a year)

    Pros

    For full time employees there were opportunities to move into other areas of the organization. The company maintains better hours that other stores in the mall, even during the holiday season.

    Cons

    Women cannot wear slacks. Women can only wear dresses or skirts with hosiery. Dress code needs to loosen up a bit. Office employees are not allowed to have water or coffee at their desks.

    Pros

    Health care benefits are good

    Cons

    Management was useless & rude. You don't have to have blonde hair or be a "Stepford wide" to be a good employee.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Treat your employees like you want your employees to treat the customers

    I have been working at Von Maur full-time (more than a year)

    Pros

    I love the people I work with, I've met some wonderful friends here. The pay and hours are good for a retail job. Lots of vacation/sick days for everyone.

    Cons

    TESS (the scheduling system) is extremely flawed. It has scheduled me 10+ days in a row when I was told that wouldn't happen/there was an alert built into the system. I sometimes feel "overworked" and I can't really take off when I need to.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Try not to play favorites. Not everyone works the same way as everyone else.
