    easy, great pay, benefits, flexiable, opportunity to advance, gifts, incentives, bonuses. overall you will learn and be rewarded on top of pay. i am happy with working here.

    little training so you will basically teach yourself until you attend certain vendor trainings, also it gets pretty unorganized with how we work on the floor and what we have to offer customer

    work out certain kinks with boosting productivity.

    Pros

    DFS have great corporate culture and values. The company is taking care of its staff and provides many trainings. This is a pleasant workplace. Indeed, It is known for being one of the best company to work for in the luxury industry because of its atmosphere as people are less snob than in other companies. In addition, as the company is growing there are many challenges to accomplish and it offers lot of opportunities.

    Cons

    I don't have real cons to highlight. However, I would just mention that the work load is relatively important.

    Pros

    Strong focus on development of staff in terms of skill sets and career progression. Great family environment to work in, where there is a strong emphasis on teamwork. Management walk the talk with their actions when it comes to practicing the 7 values of the company.

    Cons

    Irregular hours unlike your usual 9-5, Monday to Friday work week. This means some personal sacrifices in terms your own social engagements will have to be made.
