    I worked at Von Maur part-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    -Can move to higher pay quickly with enough work put in. -Promote from within -Friendly staff -Lots of benefits (even for part-time workers) like retirement plan, health insurance, etc. -Willing to work with your availability -Willing to listen to any concerns raised -Great break room.

    Cons

    -Always have to have weekend availability. -Store closes at 9pm but could stay at most an hour later depending on how busy the day was -Very strict dress code: women can't wear pants. Always a knee length or longer skirt or dress. -Men wear suit everyday. -Comission based pay creates a competitive environment. Not really worth it unless you're in the shoe department.
