    I have been working at Dillard's part-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    The best part about working at Dillards, Hands down, is the gratis, discount and all the free stuff i got from being a top credit earner and cosmetics associate collectively i got over three thosand dollars worth of gratis(makeup, perfume dillards bucks) during my 6 months of being there. The second pro was getting to play in makeup all day. The hours were just perfect for a part time position 28 hours a week.

    Cons

    The goals were insanely ridiculous for the cosmetic line I worked for. I was expected to sale 300 to 400 dollars daily, being that I worked at a dead end mall that was impossible. If you dont make you quota the first 6 months of being there your most likely be fired, Infact they hire in groups and fire in groups (10-15) people at a time, your replacement will probably be working with you right before your fired. They are very sneaky and dont let employees know whats really going on. I can go on, but the most important thing i will tell someone working in the tulsa area is if you start off at 12 theyll drop you for not meeting quota but if you start at 12.50 or more you will just get a pay cut. good luck

    Advice to Management

    Retail is not in the best place. We all know. Instead of blaming employees for low numbers dig deeper into the issue. Quit replacing groups people every three months its tacky and makes the company look worse. Get new registers.

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Dillard's (Virginia Beach, VA).

    Interview

    I applied online and received a call for an interview 3 days later . The interview from the start went downhill because she wanted to know my availability and due to children's daycare hours I can only work during the day week days . She stated I need to work atleast two nights and Sunday didn't count . From then on she seemed very uninterested , didn't really ask me anything other than how can I workout getting a new babysitter for nights . She also stated that my outfit wasn't appropriate for dillards and that my past job probably doesn't care what I wore but they do here . She was very condescending throughout the interview . I was very turned off and was just ready to leave . From what she described of the position wouldn't leave me with much of a home life and I felt very pressured about sales she said I would need to make or I would be fired . She offered me the job but I declined
