Productive and fun
Very fun and productive, can be challenging and can get a bit too much but you will have a great support system from management and co workers as they are caring

Favouritism
The manager in the Springfield branch likes to favour specific staff that he can get into bed with. There's way to much racism and management makes working there so unbearable if things don't go their way. I would never recommend anyone to work there. Off days don't come easy and as for leave days, highly impossible to take leave. Over worked and never appreciated.

Overall great experience working at cotton on, financially it provides a relief, the employee discounts are a great incentive.
The Cotton on environment is accommodating to all its candidates, it’s a relaxed, easy going environment to work with but also keeps you on your toes the employee discounts are a great way to help you have enough disposable income remaining to cover your needs. Great team !
Pros
Accommodating, self-growth

Just ok
Just okay long hours and the pay wasn’t that satisfying but overall a chilled environment to work in. Made a lot of friends. It’s just for part time not something I’d want to do full time.

I was employed as a Store Planner for the Property Team. There is a lot of emphasis on team culture, work-life balance and self improvement. I had left there with good memories only.

The change of management at that time made it difficult to work with.
When I started working for the Cotton On Group, I enjoyed the whole experience until there was change of management, which only cared about numbers than our well being.

Very unreliable when you are a Christmas casual
Worst experience when it comes to being a December Christmas Casual sometimes you go a week without being called in to work. Unreliable company. Dont go there thinking you have found a job

Productive and a fun workplace
Always busy but was always chilled. My co workers made it easy for me to do my job because of how we worked together when handling a task. Most customers were darlings, some were rude and overlooked us.

Competitive and Target Driven
A typical day at work included replenishing stock, customer service, cold calling, meeting daily department targets and store maintenance before the end of each shift.

The workplace culture is amazing and their is team building every morning to motivate employees and improve morale. Management shows empathy, respects their employees concerns and circumstances.


Hardest part of the job was working different shifts each week and meeting daily targets without commission. The most enjoyable part of the job was listening to music all day while working.

Fast pace
Working in Typo is very fast pace and demands alot of energy from you. It has been up and down for me. The people I work with are fun and I've learnt quite a bit from them and the company. I've learnt to have a thick skin and that's a little challenging when you are a kind person. There is a lot that made me question their "people first" slogan. But we all have to learn

Great culture
I enjoyed working there a lot, I learnt how to deal with conflict and resolve issues effectively. It was very busy so I had to keep my energies positive.. The hours were varied and the people were welcoming - both of which I enjoyed.

I enjoyed every moment of working under the cotton on group
It was my first job and the cotton on group made it really amazing for me and within a short period of time I knew how everything is done.... You come across different people in a day and you learn a thing or two from them. I've learnt to be patient when dealing with people, I've learnt that being calm at all times really helps be a if im gonna be worked up it won't work for me
