Not a great culture of work
Duty Manager (Former Employee) –  Canberra19 September 2016
Highly overworked and not properly compensated, expected to perform long hours and often without correct breaks.
Learnt many technical things while working there, however nothing a quick internet search wouldn't have told me.
Management are a "Boys Club" often sexist.
Co-workers were a variety of highly skilled and complete morons, neither particularly socially adept. A few workers were great but often leave quickly.
Hardest part of the job was dealing with overly technical questions as though we were expected have a degree in electronics and be working as electrical technicians or engineers.
Most enjoyable part was having a sense of accomplishment when you were able to help a client with their project and they brought photos or videos of what they had constructed.
Pros
Heavy staff discount
Cons
Overworked

Duty mngr (Former Employee) –  Melbourne VIC29 January 2020
Management at Jaycar is one that operates from a time warp.

ALL decisions about anything are made from the Sydney head office.

Autonomy of management is a foreign entity.

Initiative is frowned upon and is seen as a time wasting exercise

Lip service to; Customer service, OH&S, staff amenity, comes freely.

The only focus and concern is meeting the daily target, even if the customer count is down.

Enjoyed working there.
Sales Assistant (Current Employee) –  Canberra ACT2 December 2019
It's good to work at and you get a staff discount once you have been working there for a minimum of 6 months. It gets very busy on weekends and during Christmas time as well as Black Friday.
