    I worked at David Jones (Less than a year)

    Pros

    David Jones is one of Australia's largest retailer. It is very exciting to be apart of journey that is constantly growing and developing. The team, (head off and in-store) encourages you to grow and will help you get there. I wish I could have been a part of the team longer!

    Pros

    Long term prospects and good personal development programs to advance your career. They offer an in house traineeship which is comprehensive and helps develops your skills in buying and planning.

    Cons

    The culture of the company has gone through several changes over the past few years and upper management has been plagued with frequent changes to board members which has led to inconsistent leadership and goal setting.

    Advice to Management

    Stay on track to deliver what customers are seeking and don't rely too much on what the competition is doing. The head office team is very competent and should be rewarded more often
