    I worked at Coles part-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Extremely flexible with hours if your a student, and pay is fantastic. There are a lot of perks and discounts available for workers as well. The job isn't too demanding and shifts can be cancelled/ attained quite easily.

    Cons

    Weren't too many outside of work events for staff. Coles grad programs and career opportunities are separate from working in store roles, meaning there is no room for career progression if your in a store.

    Advice to Management

    Stop hiring grads that haven't worked at coles, so the managers know what they're doing.

    Pros

    Very good casual pay. The better you work the more hours you get. Decent discounts.

    Cons

    Hard to get promotions. Can be dry and repetitive. Customers don't make your job easier but harder.

    Advice to Management

    Stop cutting hours on wokers to save costs. Hire more workers as almost everyday is under staffed.
