    I worked at DFS Group part-time for less than a year

    Pros

    Get to meet celebrities flying off from the airport. Good pay for part timers and friendly staff who are willing to help you when you are still new.

    Cons

    Irregular hours, especially when you are working night shift, can last till 12 midnight with no cab rebates at all. Changi Airport is very far to travel to even if you live in Central area.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Could do more to manage the teams and train staff as there are not much training given.

    I have been working at DFS Group full-time for more than 5 years

    Pros

    Employee discounts extended to a wide range of luxury goods sold in the stores.
    Adequate welfare and benefits.

    Cons

    Slow career growth and progression.
    Fast track reserved for those with local degrees and accounting majors.
    I have a degree but am grossly underpaid in spite of my years of experience and qualifications, at least in comparison to my peers.
    Seemingly open culture but only semi-transparent and subject to the dynamics of interpersonal relationships.
    Work performance is moderated by the bell curve, which means ratings typically hover in the ''meet expectations" range, and that is difficult to make the leap to the next one.
