    Advice to Management

    Retail should not be about selling credit cards we get it, it makes a portion of your profits, should focus more on the stores itself and what they are selling in order to increase profits from what department stores really should be doing not being a financed for credit cards.

    Pros

    Worked in Melb CBD (Bourke Street) store, loved my work and colleagues.

    Cons

    Every week people were quitting the job, and the management was hiring throughout the year. They should try and look into the actual reason for this high churn rate.
