    I have been working at Coles part-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    Great team. Caring managers that are flexible around school/uni commitments. A corporate environment so no one can really be abusive to you, you are safe (no managers can really shout at you, etc). Good pay and consistent shifts if you show them you are a good worker. Relaxed team environment which consists of a lot of fun banta, as long as you get your work done.

    Cons

    Customers. Definitely the customers. If you haven't worked in retail before, itll be a steep learning curve because some of the customers that walk in through the door feel like theyre entileted to everything. 99% of them are great, but once you grow a thick skin to ignore the 1% of bad customers, you'll have a great time.
