  • No. Lots of people in these places. Anxiety patients usually need to be able to have more control of their workload. DJs can be manic especially around sale time and Xmas.

  • Yes it's will

  • Every branch is different, it's the staff in each place that makes the culture. But some things that are the same everywhere is that we are constantly understaffed and there's a high volume of customers to please and stock to put back and work on so you will need to remain calm and not let it get to you. Working in Retail is the same everywhere you go, these will always be challenges in a fast pace environment. And yes, customers are absolutely horrendous and it doesn't matter, cause you HAVE to behave in a certain way in order to keep them happy even when they are wrong. That is the most important thing for the business and sometimes it can make you feel discouraged.

  • That's the best feeling if working at David Jones and its the feeling of the rush and its enjoying it and once you find your place I guess its a great workplace and try to mingle with coworkers!!! Even though it may be tough or just be a natural calm associate!!!
    MAZÉL TOV & GOOD LUCK!!!

  • I don't recommend DJs if you have anxiety. They are understaffed so you have to deal with frustrated and irate customers on a regular basis. I especially caution people to not work at Highpoint. The team there is really mean, unsupportive of new staff and super cliquey. It's really stressful and management and HR are not genuinely supportive. Also it's a rotating roster and not decent hours so you can't live from your salary or easily organise a second job due to the rotating hours each week. Customers are horrendous on a regular basis. Staff morale is low. This is a very disempowering job for women and from a mental health point of view I highly recommend avoiding to work with DJs.

  • Rather start at a more structured , down to earth employer, it will prevent the disappointment and absolute feeling of despair when employed by DJ’s.

  • It is definitely a good grounding as a first job as there are many many areas you can excel in within the company. All the staff are very helpful with direction and if you ever need assistance, anyone will help you out. The company also have benefits which include counselling and security if you ever need it.

  • Yes. Started at age of 18, and been there 7 years now

  • Not if you would become anxious about the pressure of selling AMEX cards.
