What do you like about working at Dillard's?

"At Dillard's, I enjoy helping customers and giving them a great shopping experience."

Do you have any tips for others interviewing with this company?

"They want to hear nothing else but that you are driven to make your sales and you are all about getting that customer to spend."

What don't you like about working at Dillard's?

"The sales per hour thing makes everyone so competitive they become backstabbers and end up stalking the customers to get that sale. It's a place where if you don't make your sales then you're fired or your wages are deducted. Dillard's has made a very hostile work environment. There is a lot of drama on who stole whose sales."

What suggestions do you have for management?

"Reviews should not only reflect on your sales per hour, but on how you maintain your workspace. This store is a pigsty."

What do you like about working at Dillard's?

"I had complete autonomy with the merchandising in the department I managed, and I liked being a personal shopper for several professional athletes."

Do you have any tips for others interviewing with this company?

"Make sure that you want to work at Dillard's. Growth in the company is slow to almost nothing. It takes 15 years to become a sales manager if you start as a sales associate with the company. Don't faint when they start with the pay cut and probation."

What don't you like about working at Dillard's?

"I didn't like quotas and decreased pay. Sales managers are allowed to take their associates' sales to make their quotas, and promotions are not easy. For an associate to be promoted, they ask all other associates to give a certain amount of their sales to that associate."

What suggestions do you have for management?

"The problem with Dillard's is that they cut pay when quotas are not being met. They can cut pay three times in 90 days. They never take into account that it's slow, etc. No matter what the circumstance, it's your fault. You can work your butt off for that company and there are no rewards. If the management likes you, they will keep you on for as long as possible. If I was running this company, I would change the structure of the quotas to align with the economy."
