    Negative Outlook
    Disapproves of CEO

    I worked at JD Williams full-time for more than 5 years

    Pros

    The staff discount and location

    Cons

    The management style was aggressive. Staff micromanaged and set with unachievable KPIs. To progress or develop career here you must be overtly friendly with management. Ethics are diabolical. HR were useless. Did not follow any procedure. Systems were useless.

      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.
