    I have been working at Coles part-time for less than a year

    Pros

    I’ve worked almost everywhere and Coles is by far the best! i’d show up and work for free just because I love my job so much! Useful discount that works at a variety of places, great management and staff, all nice fun and down to earth yet professional, ability to move departments rather then leave your job.

    Cons

    none at all it’s great :)
