Dillards Inc. #407 / Worst Place to work
December 2008 . I was an employee of Dillard's for ten months. This has got to be the worst place i have ever worked in my life. With all that is going on right now, you'd think Dillard's would had give us a break on the Credit Applications.
No way... They are in such financial troubles that it makes the whole store be in little knots. Dillard's in North Little Rock, Arkansas is discusting. They treat the employees like crap and require at least 3 credit applications a week... If you do not get this credit applications, then they make you come to a little credit application class on a Saturday morning at 7:30 by putting it into your schedule. If you got 5 in one month, so be it, you gotta get at least 3 the next month or to the class you go, even if you have the day off, you'd better show up for this stupid meeting. They don't want you to get your quotas that are required so that set your quotas up so high that it's impossible to get it done, especially when they have all of you working at one time. It's like a bunch of animals going for after one bone.. Then there's a issue of the team playing, they expect you to team play with all your coworkers here going after this one sale. It's set up to cause problem after problem with your coworkers, especially when you put a bunch of women at one counter. Then you have your boss who has to have sales too. She's unable to get her on sales so she takes yours and credits them to herself, then to win the ", Most Sold in the store yesterday". Hello... I see a big problem here... You go to the store manager and the store secretary and complain... "We'll take care of it is all you get!" So actually, not a damn thing is done! You have a quota to meet, if your sales Drop they lower your pay... and yet this person is allow to steal your seals right under your nose. How, you ask??? The boss just buts in and takes over the sale and your left there standing like a total dumn ###! Store manager, and store Secretary won't do anything about it so you go over their heads and call Corporate 's Tom Bolin.. Humnnnnnnn, imagine that! he has yet to call me... BUT a few minutes later you are excorated upstairs and terminated because you are no team player . The real truth here is they are pissed off because they would do nothing to your boss for stealing your sales, you ask them for help and they do nothing so you call CORPORATE!
