I worked at Dillard's full-time (More than 3 years)

Pros

easy job, decent pay, easy to get raises

Cons

upper management wants you to be a robot. looking back the job was easy but should never be a first job for anyone. or a job for anyone who wants to focus on family and their own life goals. its a job to make money and that is all.

Advice to Management

go spend some time with your family. you don't need to be in the store on your day off.

    Pros

    12/hr plus commission, extra employee discounts on clearance days. Some decent managers. Lots of really cool employees and merchandise.

    Cons

    Poor upper management, dept manager of shoes was a micromanager and ill suited to lead her employees. Poor business practices. Laying off seasoned employees in favor of "new blood"

    Advice to Management

    Change your policy regarding layoffs

    I worked at Dillard's full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    I was lucky and had a great hands on management crew who were visible and spent time coaching us. Environment was pleasant except Christmas when everybody was stressed

    Cons

    Nights, holidays, weekends... Gotta love retail. Customers these days are pretty rude and talk down to you

    Advice to Management

    I wish floor plans and color schemes didn't have to be so rigid and department/area managers could exercise some of there own creativity.
