Enjoyable and great sales learning environment. In some departments managerial positions need reviewing. Culture of sales staff is very competitive.

The only good thing about this company is the Co-workers and the customers. Management is slack. Especially when it comes to asking for help when its busy, extra help only ever shows up when it suits the managers and they dont have to pay to have extra people on. They never put enough staff on when you need it. Staff are always having problems with pay wether its late or missing. Most of the concession workers dont get SAN numbers so alot of customers dont get served. They mess up availabilities alot too. Put you on the exact times you say you can't work. Overall this company has alot of fixing to do with thier entire attitude and the way they "look after" their staff.
Pros
Staff, Customers.
Cons
Management, Pay, Availability.

I loved working for David Jones. They provided extensive and proactive training and I was working in the area I wanted.
You get to meet so many different walks of life and you know your working for a company that follows rules and meets its expectations.
Pros
Invitations to particular parties, chance to meet Miranda Kerrs brother, chance to meet celebrities and insight on fashion and beauty plus staff discounts.
Cons
Not enough hours and a drop in sales.

my most enjoyable part about a job is learning new things, meeting others. The hardest part is probably getting past the challenges. ive been throughout many workplace cultures. the mamagement of all of my managers have been exceptional. i learned many things, ive learned more about the fashion industry, ive learnt many things throughout my retail experience, by knowing how to speak to customers when they ask for your opinion. i love a busy day at work, makes it fun, keeps you moving and the day goes quicker.
Pros
meeting new people
Cons
quiet days

it was quiet an interesting and challenging work environment for me, which is a great thing because I like to challenge myself in any situation to become the best that I can.
Working at a florist in David Jones has given me the ability to gain more experience with dealing and handling customers etc...

I liked my work, my co-workers, so I was always happy to go to work. I liked the majority of my customers and many became regulars. Had a good working relationship with management...always found if you did your job there wasn't any problems. The training was always ongoing. Their never was a day devoid of humour...great friendships were made which have stood the test of time.

I recently left my last position because I found travelling by public transport to the city for years just too much. Had been doing for so long. I decided that I didn't want to work fulltime anymore and wanted to be closer to home. I also wanted to drive to work and not be subject to the whim of the public transport system. want more work/life balance. I found the daily travel the hardest part.


The most enjoyable??? The people and the challenges...I am a tad competitive and enjoy. Everyday is a new day.
Pros
The more experienced I became, the more my confidence grew.
Cons
Travelling to and from work.
