    I worked at Myer part-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    *The staff discount 10-20%
    *Working with some great colleagues
    * Good retail and customer services training
    * Some great staff members in The Womens shoe department in Myer Melbourne

    Cons

    * A lot of manager are bullies and micromanage everything
    * Management favour some staff members and they get the best shifts. Longer term casuals are not given any shifts favouring new casuals as they are paid at a lower rate
    * Minimal wage
    * If you don't get a shift within 3 months they dismiss you without much notice. You get a letter in the mail stating that due to not having worked in over 3 months you employment at Myer is Terminated.
    * Management push sales such as add ons and online sales
    * Many times I work over time and not been paid for it
    * Some staff members have been employed for many years and have zero customer service skills. Infact many staff members don't havs customer service skills and either ignore customers and just talk amongst themselves.

    Advice to Management

    Please ensure fairness to all staff and give casual staff a shift every three months. If you need to terminate people due to them "having not worked in over 3 months' give them a bit of notice beforehand.
