      Disapproves of CEO

      I worked at Dillard's full-time for more than 3 years

      Pros

      Awesome discounts! Amazing floor contests & motivating perks.

      Cons

      The stress of impossible sales goals that result in pay cuts when not met. Favoritism & Nepotism are flaunted. You will work hard & ruin your feet. You will be completely taken advantage of. Health benefits are unaffordable based upon pay rates.

      Advice to Management

      Reward those who deserve it. Store managers are verbally abusive to assistant managers. Work life balance is important. You rob people of their life & don’t promote them.
