Almost none, just that the job is easy
Schedule is changed often without notice, management will lie to you about issues, and the HR dept will listen to you, then act like nothing happened.

Pay and meeting people in the store and community.
Standing and too many vendors in your way of making sales and very pushy.

The Bistro is nice but that's it
Everything. Management will lie to fire you. Leadership does not support their people it's all about throwing someone under the bus even if you aren't honest. They will blatantly treat you unfairly and disrespectfully in front of an entire department with no shame or hesitation. If you want to be cussed and belittled and almost to the point of harassment then this company is for you. There is absolutely no accountability for leadership and it's all politics in the buddy system as most of them are not even qualified to work in the industry. Most of the people there have only worked at Dillard's their entire lifetime and have built a system of untouchable veterans that are allowed to break all policies without anyone blinking an eye. If someone knew were to follow their teams behaviors they would be immediately fired because policies are not policies unless they are needed to reprimand someone. They choose when these things apply and they only apply if you have rubbed one of the long-term management Personnel the wrong way. Being a victim of slander, discrimination, verbal abuse, public humiliation, bullying, medical discrimination and retaliation is never a good thing. When you spend years doing that and are fired for things that your other teammates are not fired for and are not against policy and we're not a problem previously for you is embarrassing. But the gossip and intentional harassment should be illegal. Don't count on any support from management. Don't count on fairness. Only work here if you have to have a job and then leave as soon as possible before it ruins you and you don't even want to work in the field anymore. That's the nicest thing I can say.

-Promote from within -Promoted me twice within 3 months
-Sales/credit quotas (not unattainable but they're always down your throat with it) -Salaried managers are there ALL. THE. TIME. -Lack of communication from upper management results in you doing more work in the store (floor moves that they don't agree on, etc. etc.)

Nothing really, just a company that doesn't treat their employees fairly.
Management doesn't care about employees. Pay is unfair You don't get rewarded for good work ethic or for keeping your sales up. You have to train others who make more money than you. New employees will make more money than you, even if you are doing everything right. The sph system used for determining pay is faulty. Even if you have years of experience and make your sales goal for two years in a row, you will still make less money than brand new employees with no experience. Benefits are bad. Hours are even worse. My store manager is the worst manager I've ever known, and I have known some horrendous managers. Only apply here if you want to be treated like a worthless human and want to be discriminated against.
