    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!

    As fast as David Jones is growing, there are bound to be a few bumps.
