    Negative Outlook
    No opinion of CEO

    I worked at JD Williams full-time for more than 10 years

    Pros

    Discounted goods, staff warehouse sale, restaurant.

    Cons

    Past 4 years the company has been trying to change the type of retailer it is but still has no clear sense of direction. Management on most levels don't know what is going on and nothing gets dealt with. No clear way to report any issues, teams are getting smaller whilst the workload trebles.

    Advice to Management

    Less micro managing, be more involved in how each department works and not just fixing problems at top level

    I worked at JD Williams

    Pros

    Experience, given lots of opportunities. Great place for a graduate to learn. City centre location is ideal. The people are great.

    Cons

    Salary and progression. Start you on a low salary and impossible to increase despite increased responsibilities - no real progression.
