The short answer is they have no culture and that’s exactly the way they want to keep it. I was in Executive Management and you could not have any personal items in your office. Even in Store Management you could not have a bottle of water in your handbag that was in a cabinet out of sight. I understand a clean office but stale was the word many potential candidates viewed my work space.
I am a current department manager, and I would say it is a fairly average work environment. They will not hesitate to fire you for things like absences or tardies (but of course there are several warnings before hand). They invest in their employees so they will coach you when you make a mistake, instead of just firing you. As long as you follow the rules its a nice place to work.
You constantly feel like you're going to get fired for blinking too many times or standing the wrong way.
Like it's stuck in an era back in time. More customers would shop there if they updated it. Get rid of everything "sea foam green"
keep the piano and the floors, but makes the walls and furinture modern

Favoritism by store and floor managers
Von Maur's work environment was very positive and friendly but I always felt as if I was walking on pins and needles around management and if I made any mistakes they would fire me.
