"I've worked for Dillard's for the past 3 years and the company has an awesome work culture. It develops a strong relationship between employees and clients that results in strong sales, retention rate, and brand awareness. The compensation is very good and the leadership encourages employees to think on their own. High recommendation for employment."
"Dillard's is a breeding ground for learning new and old technologies. They offer a training program to new tech talent and offer every opportunity to succeed. There is very much a family feel there and I strongly recommend working there for anyone who enjoy technology."
"High quality with good pricing."
"Good company that's decent to work for; they don’t micro manage you."
"Dillard's has a terrible culture and toxic environment to work in. I worked at the Mall of Louisiana under store manager Brian Hudson and district manager Jill Nicolson. I was discriminated against due to the color of my skin and wasn't provided the same opportunities as people who have the "RIGHT" skin color. I graduated from the state school where I live and also had 5 years in managment experience prior to taking the job. Not only was I cut short on my pay, after I took the job they changed my contract to where I couldn't earn commission which was in my initial contract. They stole funds from me that were rightfully earned and I'm in the process of getting a lawyer."
"The owners of Dillard's have owned the joint since the 30s and without a doubt have it down pat. So they think. It is 2017. Their number one problem is they are not keeping up with the times. What they do not realize is if they treated their employees with any ounce of dignity, respect and appreciation, their sales would be higher than what they are. (See my sales below) It is a known fact new employees do not stay and while they are there, do not put 100% into selling because after three weeks in, they see the B.S. They throw their hands up and leave. And this is why I love the younger generation. They refuse to put up with their horrible style of management. And the mess trickles down from the family to store management. I did not shop there when employed and continue NOT to shop there because I refuse to hand over $1 to the hateful Dillard family. (I did care about the employee discounts.) The only plus is the departments and you only have to look best when the Dillard clan or the other corporate cluckers come for a "visit". They think they're ROYALTY! Any other time, the departments can look a mess and you can pretty much wear what you want as long as it somewhat resembles dress code. There were many days when I didn't shave. LOVED THAT PART. Despite my stubby look, I did great in sales (I faked it big time & LOVED IT!). Always met my standard goal so I would not get a pay cut. I was not interested in reaching higher sales to reach the raise goal. So I only sold what little I had to because it was my way of getting even with the Big D Family, meaning I was not going to let them cut my salary. Overall, their loss because there were times I could have built it and sold more merchandise, but, purposely did not. Now whose loss was that? Not mine! I sold $1 mill in two years. Do not work for the Dillard's unless you're writing a book on the worst experiences of your life."
"Literally would go home crying almost every night. The employees who have been there for a long time are very close to management (in a personal way). The actual job its self was very easy, I loved it, I was really good at it. The people there are very envious and rude. They don't like when you are doing good, they call you a "Shark" and talk about you behind your back, but turn around and buy your lunch. Worst group of people I have worked with. It was like High School but with a bunch of 30 and 70 year olds. It's very sad when as a 20 year old you are more mature than old people with kids. I have never hated a job so much. The management is very bad. Various women were let go so that the company wouldn't have to pay for Maternity Leave. Management was even rude to customers. There is a lot of racism. For example the manager of Men's Suits VERY racist and homophobic. Makes comments all the time. If you work in the shoe department don't get close to anyone, will make sure you lose your job. If you end up working in shoes, stay to yourself, be nice, but don't make friends. These are the absolute worst group of girls to make friends with. Would go up to new hires, grab their hip and tell them they need to eat more, come grab your chin and laugh and say "sorry to tell you, you have a double chin". BULLIES. These women feed off of you. Management will not help you at all. They've known these women very long and are good friends. Retail is bad enough without horrible coworkers. DO NOT WORK HERE, YOU WILL REGRET IT."
"They have quotas that are impossible to reach, then give you a pay cut or fire you when you don't reach it. The management think they are really important. I don't recommend working there at all."
"I have worked at Dillard's for a year, most stressful place to work, would not recommend anyone to work there. Store Manger is very rude, need more training for staff and management. You have 4 weeks to meet your sales quota, and build up your clientele. Pay is good but not worth all the screaming going on about get sales up or you're gone. Too many young people working there that do not do their job, and they weed out all the older employees. Did not have the proper supplies needed to do my job, you try to do your job and supervisor would come over and find something wrong with it .You have to pick up slack from the young ones not doing their jobs, yes have turned it in and now supervisor picks on me."
"Fair place to work, depending what department."
"I have worked for Dillard's Corporate for 5 years. I have enjoyed learning the IT side of computer technology. It has helped me to become well rounded in the computer and sales industry."
"The culture is very traditional. The compensation is good for the area."
"Company changing. Glad to be pursuing new opportunities"
"Great Place to work. I would highly suggest anyone to work here!"
"I worked for Dillard's years ago. It was enjoyable because I worked for a cosmetic counter and I really enjoyed more the line that I worked for. Overall It was one of my favorite jobs and I would recommend it."
