Extensive training over the whole product range provided; many staff with great product knowledge. Depending on the management in the store - the store could be run efficiently and with the staff's knowledge and expertise could be used in the right way/time; acknowledgement of experience is crucial.
Pros
clean, safe work environment
Cons
during peak trading periods Xmas etc.... expected to get tasks done quickly, not always safely.

Worked their for 8 years. Got treated like filth most of that time. Too many changers in Management, each wanting to implement their own style and prove themselves to area. Also too much favouritism.
Pros
Like minded colleagues.
Cons
Long hours. Management constant power tripping.

working at dans has been the best period of my life so far, I’ve made so real good friends who I know will have my back, I’ve gained a lot of confidence in my social skills and in my knowledge of wines, spirits and beers. The management are easy going, friendly and will always try and be cooperative with your weekly schedule.
Pros
friendly environment, lots of shifts.
Cons
not much opportunity to advance

As a business the company does well, it has its fingers in many holes and departments to head up everything imaginable, from Cleaning and Security, to Purchasing and Ordering Stock. These departments all work outside of each other and outside of the retail business itself but it certainly provides a guideline that allows you to carry on without too much interference. The leadership team often want to go further and will engage in the corporate culture to do so, but as a team member it is very simple and just boils down to a little bit of hard labour and a lot of customer engagement.
Pros
Decent casual pay
Cons
Bad Salary

I have worked at 2 Dan's outlets now and both groups of staff were awsome to work with. Was offered job advancement at both outlets. Had other jobs whilst working at both outlets and manager always worked around my other rosters so I could continue to work for them.
Pros
Fitted in with my other job
Cons
Didn't pay quite enough

Managers can be very rude and off hand. You can loose hours very quickly if the team, or management do not like you. Favouritism with rostering, and workloads. Some of the northern suburbs Dan Murphy's the Managers think they are a law unto themselves, especially at Smithfield SA and can speak to staff like they are a piece of rubbish.
Pros
No pros
Cons
A lot of online training for nothing

You learn a lot about different types of alcohol which can help communicate with customers and teach them for future references. Very busy in the holidays especially Christmas. Gives shifts equally to all employees.

Great company to work for. Bit of low level politics, but great management. Flexible timings, work life balance, constant training given. Can ask for a location close to home.

In most stores I worked at they had a great culture and my store manager backed me was helpful. The last store manager I had in Wilsonton was hopeless, no accountability and if there was, it was for the wrong thing. Overall pretty great place to work and the pay is great compared to other companies in the same role

Decent working atmosphere however if you are new they may be very likely to give you limited shifts on days/times that more established staff do not wish to work such as Friday and Saturday evenings only. Presumably if you can stick it out until the next batch of hiring then you'll be given preferential treatment too.

Thoroughly enjoy my time with Dan Murphy, it hasn't all been easy but it has been very well rewarding. Have a great team, amazing Managers. Learn a lot about service to customers and also serving the wider community. Have gained a lot of experience and knowledge on the different types of products that we sell, and overall how to give the best customer experience.

My first real job ever and it has given me a good insight to the working life. Working at Dan Murphy's has helped me become a better worker with their fast-paced environment, managers were kind and caring for the employees well-being above all else. Dan Murphy's was not only about selling alcohol to customers but they try educated employee's about the alcohol's history, ingredients, process and ageing. This gave me a better understanding about the different products which let me help customers better.
Pros
Caring managment
Cons
Can be stressful at times
