Don't work here
Food and Beverage Attendant (Former Employee) –  Sydney NSW31 October 2019
You''ll be disappointed because the management team couldn't care less about you. I guess the coworkers were nice though. The work was super stressful and mostly unrewarding. I'd think twice before applying..

Pressure beyond job description.
Sales Expert (Former Employee) –  Sydney NSW1 May 2019
The expectation is very much that you will live and breathe the brand. The team is lovely to work with, but stretched incredibly thin. Extreme pressure is placed on employees to push customers to apply for the David Jones American Express cards.
Pros
Great team
Cons
Low remuneration

fun workplace
Logistic assistant (Former Employee) –  Sydney NSW16 January 2019
Work place is fun to work but with limited career opportunity. Colleagues are friendly and management listens to staff. Sometimes work pressure is overwhelming as only limited number of staff are assigned.

A great journey with a lot of learning
Sales Executive (Current Employee) –  Sydney NSW2 May 2017
Working in David Jones not only gives you the reputation but also teaches you many important things related to you and your surrounding. David Jones has helped me learn brands and accessories from different places of the world and their worth in terms of material and in terms of customer preferences. Not long ago I used to wonder why these brand shops had such high prices. Now, that perspective has changed and gone for good as I have seen the products of each brand and how unique they are from one another in terms of material, heritage etc. Moreover, David Jones taught me the appropriate attitude for dealing with customers. It has taught me the right etiquette to be more presentable in front of people. I guess the lessons that I have taken from David Jones outweighs the challenges on the job.
