          Disapproves of CEO

          I worked at Von Maur full-time for less than a year

          Pros

          there really ain't none ..

          Cons

          If you enjoy standing around for 9 hours a day with no water, zero customers, dressed like the amish, and being micro managed by five different people on the floor and camera room then this is the job for you! Management has no respect for any associates and is more concerned about employees following stupid rules like not walking on the carpet then their counters actually generating revenue.

          Advice to Management

          tell them to learn what manners are and what respect for other people is then fire all of them
