Here's what people have asked and answered about working for and interviewing at The Cotton On Group.
Depends, the training for seasonal staff seems pretty poor. They usually have them attend a group induction and provide some training. Not everyone learns to use the cash register at christmas the more 'fun' jobs are usually reserved for more senior staff.
If you're hired outside peek trading seasons the training is better. I was fortunate to be inducted one on one with my manager. You can expect a large majority of your 'training' to come informally from the senior casuals, ask them how stuff works and how they do things. I've worked at a few stores now and this seems to be the best way to get good at the job.
You too go on line to there Website and follow the steps.
The first interview will probably have a lot of other people in a group interview like I had to do. It goes for around an hour and they asked three questions.
First was to introduce ourselves to our partner and have the partner introduce us to everyone else, as you do for them.
Second was a scenario. They could ask anything but my group had “a customer wanted to buy a shirt in a size you didn’t have in store, what do you do?” So our group had to brainstorm ideas together and say it aloud in front of everyone else.
Third was we were given an item. Mine was a beach towel, and we had to describe the features and benefits of the towel to everyone else.
It is a pretty easy going interview an they aren’t putting pressure on you and if your shy like me it won’t be too hard as long as you try to involve yourself as much as you can.
50% off all the cotton on group but it is only a limited amount of items per month. I think around 20-30. But it’s available for the cotton on store, factorie, typo, supre, cotton on body and cotton on kids.
Really depends on the size of the store and how many casuals are there. The shortest shift they usually give is 3 hours. Sometimes you won't get any shifts for weeks, and sometimes you'll get several. In my experience most of the casual staff isn't valued very highly and i think thats reflected in the rostering. Also get used to getting rosters on incredibly short notice.
