the best company to build your career! I was employed as sales when I started a career in Dubai Duty Free and was transferred in IT Department after 5 years. The company had provided us with trainings and for others, trainings abroad are being given. The best company I've had work for.

trainings, schedule and pay

Cons

none

It is a definitely good company to work for. Great insurance at NAS. Amazing schedule

Love being a part of the company, after some time you can apply for dedicated staff or beauty advisor of some well-known brand and get a commission from that brand. P.S. Sometimes do not pursue the logic of the actions or tasks that you have been given :) Just do what was asked. :D

Pros

Positive people around, environment, providing accommodation and transportation.

Cons

scanners at the airport, shifting and night duties

One of the best company abroad

One of the best company abroad. Our CEO always address his employees as the foundation of the success of the company. He is very generous and ensure that welfare of the staff comes first. That is why employees love him so much and repay his kindness by working together to hit our goal.

Short hours of work, bonus, benefits, etc

Cons

Shifting schedule every 2 days
Was this review helpful?

A quite fast pace retail service but always gives the highest quality customer service.

Our schedule is 8hrs a day and on shifting basis. (2mornings/2afternoons/2nights) We are divided in to 4 cluster A-D to rotate and we call those daily mornings as G shift. I have learned to treat every customer as VIP as we believe in a highest quality of customer service. At the airport we make it as fun and productive until our shift ends. The inter-racial colleagues help you as well deal with each nationalities of customer. I learned to speak few and basic Russian, chinese,Arabic, and few of Spanish.The hardest part of the job is when I ended my career because of the situation now.The most enjoyable part is you meet Hollywood stars and our very own celebrity. Also, you learn to embrace other nationalities behavior.

Pros

Pick up and drop off transportation./ Accomodation

Cons

24 hours Airport

Its a challenging and fun workplace

For me this was very memorable moments in my entire life for the past 16 years working with Dubai dutyfree and co workers with different nationalities all over the world. Meet and greet different customers and pasengers all over the world. I learned a lot specially from sales how you would approach the customer's needs.The management was very understandable and very helpful from their staff. Language barrier are difficult specially from the customers and entering from the shop. Everyday is enjoyable because you meet different people and how you would intetact with them.

Pros

It depends when there is big events like tennis tournament etc.

Cons

8 hours duty maximum

Very Good compensation package and benifits.

Salary and job is fulfilling but Management and the way people are chosen for senior roles is very poor and subjective.Great track record and good performance is not valued and if you show intelligence and capabilities management will treat you as a threat.

Pros

Free Transpo

Cons

Subjective managers and poor promotion

Excellent organization

Very high values and professional place to work at.All that’s asked of you is sincerity, hard work and respect to one and all.An established organization with an international mindset. Daily sales of close to 10+ million says a lot about the financial standing of the company.Located in the busiest airport in the world and ranked the BEST duty free in the world for many many years.

Pros

Outstanding Management

Cons

Can be complacent at times

Excellent place for work and especially for those who seek to start their carrier.

I had learned a lot of valuable skills and knowledge about customer service, sales, cash handling, interaction with the people from different backgrounds and cultures. The hardest part of job might be the shifting and night duties, but as time passed by you will become used to it. Over all Dubai Duty Free - is the great company to work.
