Featured Review
"Good job"17 Jun 2021

Current Employee - Grocery Stocker

I have been working at Coles part-time for more than 5 years

Pros

Night work has decent pay, and good, genuine people. Hard work but it feels good to be good at the job. Good for fitness.

Cons

Some think they’re too good and don’t get dealt with for their behaviour.

Advice to Management

A positive and approachable manager is always best for team morale.
