No Opinion of CEO

I worked at Coles full-time for more than 5 years


Great culture among people of the same/similar level (between team members, supervisors and department managers) Decent pay for people like myself whom haven't completed a bachelor degree Flexible

    Average Interview

    I applied online. I interviewed at Coles (Brisbane) in Nov 2020


    After applying online, I was immediately given a link to complete a video interview within the next two days. For each question, you are given 30 seconds to read it and prepare a response and one minute to record a response.

    What is your availability and what do you do outside work? Give an example of when you have given excellent customer service. Why would you like to work for Coles, and what department would you prefer? How will you ensure the safety of yourself, coworkers and customers?
