CHANDLER, ARIZONA -- I was an employee at a Dillard's store in the Phoenix area for seven months. During those seven months, I endured a lot of crap and was always hassled and treated with disrespect by management and other employees. I started off working on the dock, which wasn't so bad at first. Then, after a couple of weeks I realized how that place really operates and I started to question "Is this job really worth it?" After a couple of incidents that I had nothing to do with one night, I threatened to quit. I was talked out of it by a couple of co-workers, though. I then put in my two weeks not long after because I wasn't making enough money and they were working me to the ground. They only had me scheduled for four days off the ENTIRE month of January, whereas everyone else I worked with had at least two days off per week! I refused to work that schedule and that was one of the reasons I wanted to quit. On my last day with fifteen minutes to go, I negotiated with the Asst. Store Manager, whom I will not name. She offered to move me to the sales floor, and I accepted. I wanted $10/hr, but she gave me $9.50 and told me to deal with it. I then ran the young men's denim area for the rest of my employment there. To make a long story short, I put in my two weeks again, which expired on Saturday, May 5th. I was accused of stealing by the manager of the kid's department. She said they have me on tape stealing bedding. I told her off because I do not like being accused of something I didn't do. I was merely helping a customer out with their packages because there was nobody on the dock to help her.
Am I just going to say no, I can't help you? I had her receipt in my hand and it matched the two packages that were waiting there. I think they fired me because they were mad that I was leaving. The damn place has become like a High School. They monitor the parking lot in the mornings and make sure that employees aren't parking in the blue area. They're even confiscating associate's cell phones! This company is ridiculous! All they care about are their pacesetters and opening up credit apps! I never asked a single person for a credit app during my employment there nor did I ever once wear a nametag! I hate Dillard's with a passion and I will NEVER shop there again because they treat people like crap and they are a very racist company!
Notice their ads in the paper? The models are all white! Even if you're desperate for a job, don't ever work at Dillard's because you will hate every minute of it! Let's just get everyone together and boycott Dillard's and not shop there! Anymore disgruntled Dillard's shoppers or current/former employees out there? I want to hear from you!
