Visual Merchandiser in Melbourne VIC
on 15 August 2021
Productive bright work environment. Staff are dedicated, few; and very very busy.
Upbeat floor team with alot of ground to cover. Dept managers all worked together and collaborated to cover workloads. A few too many departments to cover in a week. Little to no trust or variation of guidance from visual management. Hardest part of the job-- Adaptive management and communication style was nil to outright publicly yelling while youre covering 12+ depts. Add in little to none positive verbal reinforcement to junior staff. A fine to great shopping experience usually. Best part of the job--Helping people find or suggesting things you saw around the store to match what their needs/wants are! We all know retail is struggling but they have really great variety, sales, and "finds" in every department; in bargain to luxury price points showing why they keep ahead of other department stores!

Negative management
Firstly the positive, the general staff are fantastic, truck drivers generally nice, the negative, unless you are a YES person you wont get far at Djs, unless you crawl you will only be a normal worker and not go up food chain at all, very negative management, never worked in such a negative environment

Started Great turned real bad
terrible management. Cutting staff. Barely have any staff on the floor. No back up from management. All they care about is pushing people to open cards. They blame you for not making enough sales that's why you don't get casuals to cover lunch breaks. Short lunch breaks, or lunch break gets cut in half. Stay over time. Never paid for all the time you stay extra. Never feel appreciated. Management will only take care of other managers and them selves. They don't want to deal with customer complaints. If you have a stalker you deal with it yourself. It did start great Used to have great brand training nights. Had support. Since covid hit, it's all gone down the drain. It gets very repetitive and boring.

Never work there ! You will never be respected and paid enough for amount of jobs they load in you . Management is ridiculously bad.
No work- life balance , not a good pay , jobs overloads , unprofessional and very ignorant managers. No career growth . You won’t be respected or valued there.

Stressful place to work
Didn’t like the management, culture and employees around me. Absolutely rude and would never work there again. The pay wasn’t that good and the hours kept getting changed and always being understaffed. Employee discount was 20% only on days worked which was stupid and the customer service was horrid
