Outstanding company
Handbag Specialist (Former Employee) –  Lexington, KYJanuary 16, 2018
Dillard's is a great place to work. They are starting to carry very fashion forward clothing and accessories. The employees are some of the best I have ever worked with, it was like getting paid to be with your friends all day. However, it is very competitive with sales goals that have to be met.

Sales Associate (Former Employee) –  Bartlesville, OKJanuary 16, 2018
I made lots of friends while there. Loved the job, didn't like some managers. The discount was awesome and even better during sale time. I miss my days there.

Good luck
Shoe Sales Associate (Former Employee) –  Pensacola, FLJanuary 16, 2018
Although the pay is decent, that's about the only good thing about working for Dillard's. They have unreasonable sales goals to meet, and harsh punishment for not meeting said goals. Management was an absolute joke, they do not care about you at all. You are nothing to corporate.

Extremely competitive work environment
Sales Associate (Current Employee) –  North Little Rock, ARJanuary 16, 2018
Shifts can often be longer than 8 hours. After a Two week training period you are put into a department without any input on where you would like to be placed. If you ever wish to transfer departments it is a extremely long process and you could end up not even getting approved for the transfer. The managers are often hard to get ahold of if you need them. The overall job is not bad at all and the pay is good for what you do. It just needs to be better managed to reach its full potential
Pros
occasional free lunches
Cons
Long shifts

It sucked
SALES ASSOCIATE (Former Employee) –  Chandler, AZJanuary 16, 2018
High turn over rate and cut throat. Manager's are constantly down your throat if you aren't making your quota. It doesn't matter how long you have been there.

Overall awful
Certifed Bra Fitter (Current Employee) –  Tucson, AZJanuary 15, 2018
There’s a reason this company is on Forbes worst companies to work for. Pay is great but the environment and poor management is just not worth it. It doesn’t help that management does not value their employees

Dillards
SalesAssociate, Savannah (Current Employee) –  Savannah, GAJanuary 15, 2018
Dillards is a great area to work in as far as retail. Not only do they pay more than majority of retail stores but they have high end clothing that you can learn about. The staff is amazing and the management is great.

Unrealistic KPI's
ALTERATIONS MANAGER/RETAIL SALES (Former Employee) –  Dothan, ALJanuary 15, 2018

Pros
Better retail merchandising
Cons
Sales affected employment

Co-Workers are great
Sales Associate/Department Specialist (Former Employee) –  Midland, TXJanuary 15, 2018
Mangement is horrible they do not care about the employees or what they have to do. The benefits are probably the worst thing ever it is almost better to find your own somewhere else. The job is easy but when you have to put up with a management staff like that one it makes the job horrible and it makes it so you don't even want to show up anymore. If you are looking to get a job here I recommend you just stay with it part time once you go full time they could care less about family issues or anything else life throws at you. They also give you virtually impossible sales goals so you can never get a raise.
Pros
1 hour lunch
Cons
no breaks, management, no benefits, sales goals

Sales are fun.
Sales Associate (Former Employee) –  College Station, TXJanuary 15, 2018
Everything about that job would have been perfect if the management was not so poor. It seriously is just that bad. They have had a pretty bad turnover rate and the sales expectations are too high.
Pros
discount
Cons
management.

Prestige Beauty Consultant (Former Employee) –  Jacksonville, FLJanuary 15, 2018
This is a great job for anyone looking to pursue a career not just a job but a career in the cosmetic field. This job position will set you up for more than just selling makeup! They teach you how to become your own boss and the correct ways to approach people for a sale not only for your sales quota, but for the clients best interest. You leave your day feeling satisfied and that you made someone else's day as well.
Pros
Gratis ( Free Products ) Commission, High Pay
Cons
Long hours in heals

It's okay
HEAD CASHIER - CUSTOMER SERVICE (Former Employee) –  North CarolinaJanuary 15, 2018
It's an okay place to work. Current management not doing very well. There is more and more politics involved. Turnover is rising. However overall, the company and the environment was pleasant. The customers are usual a cordial type of person, co-workers are friends and get along rather well.
Pros
Benefits were decent. Not boring as there were many jobs involved, good hours toward the end
Cons
High turnover, rule changes sporadic, often after the fact and with no communication from management
