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

Lucky to be part of the Word's No.1 Retail Company

I must say that I've been lucky to be a part of the organization. I worked for 11 years in this industry and I am happy that I saw myself grown from Sales Assistant to Beauty Advisor then to Supervisory Level. If it isn't because of this pandemic, I will not dare to leave this company.

Pros

Accommodation, free laundry, free transportation, 30 days paid leave and free annual air fare tickets.

Cons

Shifting Hours, 7-3, 3-11 and 11-7 then 1.5 off days (during the time I left)

an environment full of adjustments and learning everyday.

Your daily tasks require you to replenish, sale, sale and more sale needs to be generated. We learned how to become persuasive to customer, you should not let the passenger go without buying anything. Do everything possible to make the quota always reached. Our workplace is very enticing as it is loaded of luxury high end items. The hardest part of the job is to attend the night duty. Every 2 days our shift is always changed, 2 mornings, 2 afternoons and 2 nights. These 2 nights are very hard. The most enjoyable part of the job is increasing our salary every year, receiving goody bags full of luxury tester items, receiving 1.5 bonus every year, getting gift cards/perfume items whenever you sell some branded items under promotions. Receiving gift cards when you were caught performing exemplary customer service.

Pros

free uniforms, transportation facilities, and accommodation.

Cons

2 night duties are very daunting

Global Leader and one of the biggest award winning travel retail in the world!

I worked for DDF for more than 15 years and I only left my job because I have to relocate otherwise I wouldn't have left the company. I only have high praises for my former employer because they really know how to take care of their employees that's why employees stay until they retire. They also do promotion from within because the company believes in its employees' capabilities. We are provided different customer service and product trainings to enhance our selling skills. It's not always work there because the company provides different activities like sports and talent shows wherein staffs can enjoy and showcase their skills and talents. There are also staff parties for socialization. Benefits and pays are very good and I can say that the company is really GENEROUS, PATIENT and UNDERSTANDING of its workforce. It provides job security and stability plus other opportunities and self growth. You wouldn't find it boring to work there because you get to meet a lot of different nationalities from co-workers and management to passengers/customers. There is learning everyday. Your co-workers are like your family already. The company provides paid vacation leave and since it's in the airport, mostly the schedule are shifting to morning, afternoon and graveyard unless if you're working in the office which have the regular morning sched. If you're looking for job security/stability in the travel retail sales industry, HONEST (honesty is the best policy there), teamplayer in a culturally diverse setting, flexible, people and service oriented then DDF is the right place for you. -
