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

    Pros

    Generally quite a lot of hours available, Team was mostly friendly, Staff discount is nice

    Cons

    Consistently understaffed which leads to quite a lot of hate from customers. Management pushes you to sell the American Express cards so hard that you are going to feel guilty whenever you haven't sold one. They encourage you to lie to sell them and to take advantage of old people who don't really understand what they are doing.
