    I have been working at David Jones full-time

    Pros

    I've been at David Jones for 5 years. It started out as a casual job, then part time, then Assistant Sales Manager, and now Sales Manager. Career progression is there if you have a good work ethic and put in the work required. Commission and benefits on top of pay are great if you achieve all KPIs.

    Cons

    Hard work for OK pay, as with most retail jobs. Can be quite exhausting, but working your way up the ladder is rewarding.

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

    Pros

    I worked at the concept Barangaroo store for about 2 years and worked with the best people, and some beautiful and loyal customers. Staff discount/double discount days were great. DJ's does provide significant amount of training

    Cons

    Way too much focus on selling AMEX DJ cards Horrible managers, too much bullying and intimidation from some on their power trips Favouritism given to "golden staff" who can do nothing wrong and suck up to managers You don't agree on something managers expect you to do then be prepared to be punished Expect lots of hours on minimal wages Can get really boring and mind numbing when there isn't many people in... store

    Advice to Management

    Stop this favouritism between employees and management. There needs to be a control on who is in charge and review those for bullying. No one direct in store to talk to about bullying issues and HR don't care. Also, it's a slow store with not much traffic. Not your sales assistants issue. That's a marketing flop. Stop blaming your SA's for not making much money or hitting KPI's. David Jones as a whole needs to sort... out their marketing already for the Barangaroo store and stop pretending it's the 80's where the internet and online shopping doesn't exist. Your target market is completely off - did you even visit this location??????
