    I worked at Dillard's full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    All I can truly say here is that I liked my co-workers and my direct ASM.

    Cons

    The focus on numbers is ridiculous. All they care about are number number numbers. Numbers of every kind, sales, returns, credit applications opened. Fine I get it, its a retail sales job. We were hired to SELL. However you seem to forget and ignore those employees who work really hard but may not necessarily make their numbers because they are busy keeping the store looking nice and doing all the other jobs other associates are supposed to do buy won't. Then when we bring concerns like this up to you, you turn it around to be our fault and that we just need to work harder even if we are already "burning the candle at both ends" just to get by. I'm glad to have moved on from DIllard's to a retail store that appreciates my hard work and abilities.

    Advice to Management

    Please be more realistic and understanding of you employees. Most of the upper management has no clue because they were hired right into management positions without knowing what its like to be on the sales floor. Also admit when you are wrong about something rather than contradicting yourselves multiple times when confronted. Some of the people here are an HR lawsuit waiting to happen.

    I worked at Dillard's full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Great starting pay, discounts, opportunity of advancement

    Cons

    The quota system may prove to be a hassle for someone who is not sales driven or intimidated by team members.

    Advice to Management

    Consider that amount of people working daily within departments before setting high daily quotas
