    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!

    I worked at David Jones as a contractor

    Pros

    Lots of people in my team had been with DJs for years and had continuously progressed their careers within the business, quite a few had worked their way up from sales assistant to senior roles in head office.
    Supportive managers and team, I made some great friends whilst working here. The people and brands in store are amazing, a really exciting place to work.

    Cons

    The only con for me was being on a working holiday visa, as I was in a junior position I was not eligible for sponsorship.
