    I worked at Myer part-time (more than a year)

    Pros

    Great staff discount, often runs competitions for gift cards, some managers are awesome and really nice people - really make you feel appreciated and valued.

    Cons

    Sometimes you might be put in any section, regardless of where you want to be. They'll then tell you to just act like you know the merchandise in this area, so you end up just looking incompetent when a customer needs help.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Instead of only picking up all the bad things the staff do and chastising them, try to reward the good efforts as well. Some of the managers were great, but some just seemed to feel the need to constantly criticise and put the team members down.

    I worked at Myer part-time (more than a year)

    Pros

    Flexible working hours and management willing to work around flexible study schedules. Great team of people. Opportunities to transition from retail into other departments of the business and grow your career.

    Cons

    As with most retail jobs, work can become mundane and there are lots of different types of customers to deal with. Some employees have been with the company 10+ years and are not open to change which can make it hard to do your job.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Reward those who do a good job and you want to keep at any level. Change management for long standing team members to help adjust to new things.
