Good place to work if management likes you
SALES ASSOCIATE (Former Employee) – Normal, IL – May 16, 2018
I worked for von maur for one singular year and was terminated recently for, actually, doing my job. I had an issue with talking before, I stopped talking a whole lot and then I just stayed in my department and every time I left my department I would get yelled at, even if I was returning items from other departments to their department and for stocking my bags and other necessities for the department.
Management, except the store manager herself, all had favorites in the store, and was not afraid if other associates knew. Favoritism was definitely an issue.
Also, I was terminated for something that two specific managers would constantly do, except they stood in other departments and would sit and talk for a lot longer than I ever would. When I was terminated, the manager who had terminated me was 100% aware that I had thoughts that she wasn't too fond of me.
All in all I enjoyed working at Von Maur, and probably would have been able to stay if two specific managers didn't have a personal vendetta against me.
great starting pay, 1% commission on top of hourly rate
