    I have been working at Von Maur full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    I have been here since the store opened. I have been through all types of managers. If your willing to put in the work they are willing to give. The attendance policy is a bit strict, but being on time is important with everything you do. They have bent over backwards for me, but I have done the same. I don’t plan on go anywhere.

    Cons

    Not a lot of cons. With every job there is bad days. We are all human just trying to make a pay check. But they really need to update their systems with everything they do from markdowns to comunicating to us

    Advice to Management

    Continue listening to your people. We have good opinions too.

    I worked at Von Maur full-time

    Pros

    Employees and dept mgrs and super friendly and helpful for the most part.

    Cons

    One of the floor mgrs I worked with in particular is a horrible human being. Don't ever have an emergency!!

    Advice to Management

    Take bullying complaints seriously. If it's a busy time of year don't brush your employees off. A horrible way to treat someone!! This does not apply to the Store Mgr or HR who were decent to work with.
