I worked at World Duty Free full-time (Less than a year)

Pros

Good health insurance. Employee discount. Not difficult work. They always need employees, so it's easy to get hired. Usually some sort of sales contest going on, but the rewards are usually fairly minimal.

Cons

Local managers are poor and refuse to give references for future jobs. Low pay. Going through TSA every day is tedious and adds time to the commute. Repetitive tasks.

Advice to Management

Local management is unfriendly, unorganized, and unconcerned with keeping employees. They have a tendency to wear down on employees who have been there for multiple years, likely because they have accrued benefits and higher pay. My advice to the management would be to treat their employees more like people.

    I worked at World Duty Free full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    benefits are decent, good security.

    Cons

    Terrible LONG hours. There will be no time for your life outside of work.

    Advice to Management

    Hire from within. Everyone is hired from outside and ends up messing up the company since no one really knows the reality of what it's like on the floor day and and day out. Also, no one has any advancment even though they have been there for 30+ years.
