    I have been working at David Jones part-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Hard work is rewarded with extra hours, extra opportunity, as well as unpaid leave if requested in special circumstances.
    If you do well you are made to feel special.

    Cons

    Occasionally difficult to mediate between multiple managers. Excessive focus on the DJs Card Programme which occasionally intrudes into what should be the focus of the company i.e. Selling material products rather than financial services.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Generally the progress of my particular store has been excellent - I would hope the takeover by Woolworths SA has minimal impact on the moderate recovery of David Jones and I would hope Paul Zahra's role in the transformation is given due credit
