    I worked at JD Williams full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Excellent discount and opportunity to grow and learn skills outside of your job spec. The second area manager I worked with was great to work for.

    Cons

    The company is very disorganised and wastes tonnes of money on things that then effect the overall business. This coupled with bad business acumen meant that they had to close 5 stores in recent times due to bad profit management. Head office have no idea how to run a tight knit ship.

    Advice to Management

    Figure out how brick and mortar stores work and don't overreach before the company had enough money to sustain stores, losing jobs does not make others feel stable in the company.

      I worked at JD Williams full-time

      Pros

      Learned a lot of work related skills from other co-workers, location is good since it was in the city centre, met a lot of nice people.

      Cons

      A bit muddled with their management, the office layout felt like a call centre.
