I believe that most of the employees are under stress because of the "sales quotas" that are imposed by Dillard's. They increase the wages and then they give unrealistics amounts to sell.
If you dont make the sales quota then they add them to your next day. If people returns what you sold then it gets also added to your quota. So now you have the quota for yesterday the return item's and the unrealistic sale quota for today. If you dont meet their expectations then they decrease your hourly wages.
You can't get sick and if you do even with the doctors note they make you sign the absentee paper and it goes against you. Even when you call ahead of time it doesnt matter. What I wonder is why the Labor department is not investigation Dillard's? I firmly believe that Dillard'sis breaking the law.
Their policies are in place to protect Dillards and not the employees. Hence the reason why the sales asociates are under stress. Things need to change or Dillards will be losing a lot of customers to other department stores.
I only agree in one thing they do have amazing prices. The sales prices are very reasonable.
