Former Employee - Cashier

I worked at Coles part-time for less than a year

Pros

Good working environment with good pay

Cons

Nothing to mention for this

Current Employee - Retail Assistant

I have been working at Bunnings Warehouse part-time

Pros

The work for casuals is consistent and well paid with flexible hours. The training is available across a number of areas including safety, product and retail methodology. I have found the... Coordinators and Senior Management to be supportive and pleasant. As always if you have the correct frame of mind most roles and employers can be enjoyable.

Cons

The environment is a large open warehouse and it can get hot and cold but not to be level of being unbearable. Appropriate clothing is readily supplied.

Advice to Management

Keep up the good work and stay in touch with the retail floor.
