    I have been working at Dillard's full-time for less than a year

    Pros

    Pay is decent and scheduling is typically a non issue, unless it's during a sale.

    Cons

    After being in the retail industry for the better part of 10 years, I was approached by Dillard's to come onboard as a selling business manager. At first I was excited at all of the challenges the position brings and the opportunities that I was being told I would have, only to have my hopes and dreams smashed by the realization that Dillard's hires the WORST store managers who's soul purpose seems to be creating a hostile and catty work environment. Management constantly makes up incidents to blame on poor performing associates to "guide them towards termination" as I so lovingly heard many times from the Operations manager at my store. This is not an isolated incident either, as I have traveled to other Dillard's around the nation for training and visual marketing. Upper management and corporate have sold out completely to the Dillard's credit card, and spend far more time forcing cards down clients throats than actually attempting to develop a reliable clientele in their community. Anytime one of the Dillard's family would stop by ( and it's quite often) the visible excitement by the store management team for each visit could be seen proudly protruding from the neatly pressed slacks of the management team as they all lined up to give bill Dillard his quarterly kissing up fest. I would never wish my worst of enemy's to work for such a backwards and poorly managed company and I sincerely hope that anyone who is considering working here will think twice and then run in the other direction.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    You should all be ashamed of yourselves. If the sales staff you employed knew how you talked about them behind closed doors you would all have your cars keyed in the parking lot and be left with a pile of credit card applications to wipe your collective tears off the floor.
