    I have been working at David Jones part-time for more than 5 years

    Pros

    Staff discounts, great people to work with, somewhat flexible hours.

    Cons

    The because I said so attitude of high management. Lots of secrets. No trust to the point it impacts your work. short staffed constantly. Take ages to replace staff. No respect for "dock workers" who work harder than anyone else in the store but get the least pay.

    Advice to Management

    Stop demanding and start listening. Saying things have to be done in a certain amount of time but not putting on enough staff to do it is unrealistic.

    I worked at David Jones

    Pros

    good people, there not really more to say the as in regards to pros except working with a bunch of good people except the some of the management some managers where not nice and not worth working for

    Cons

    some mangers are rude lazy and incompetent, don't train staff properly, Expect you to do 10 things in 5 minutes over all the worst management and lack of hours

    Advice to Management

    pick up you game treat staff with respect alter all there doing a lot of the work but over all don't force someone out of work after they had a serous medical disease, very disgusting behaviour

    I worked at David Jones part-time for more than a year

    Pros

    David Jones gave us the best salary in retail industry as a casual worker.

    Cons

    Managers were changed quite often. During my 1 year+ stay, I had three different managers.

    Advice to Management

    Get more staff, it's damaging to David Jones' reputation when a customer walked into a department with only one staff member.

    I worked at David Jones full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Dedication is valued, plenty of opportunities to improve your skill set through training programs.

    Cons

    Can be frustrating not to see changes implemented. Too great a focus on sales numbers and figures at the expense of improving company culture and actually changing customer opinion through an improved experience.

    Advice to Management

    The area of logistics requires more focus from management. The department and its staff are greatly undervalued.
