Casual Sales Assistant (Former Employee) –  Sydney NSW16 August 2017
Although working here for the partial time being was fun, it also wasn't the most valuable experience I've ever had. A part from inconsistent rosters and abrupt managers, It was an uneasy place to be able to experience retail for the first time.

sales and merchandising (Former Employee) –  Perth WA8 June 2017
a young peoples clothing store with great music and clothes. Cotton on have a specific way they like every thing done and you receive ongoing training throughout your career. As a retail store the emphasis is on sales and helping customers.
There is also stock coming in all the time to unpack and put away, cleaning at the end of the day and reports to do daily to management.
Pros
fun environment
Cons
on your feet all day

good place to work
Sales Assistant (Casual) (Former Employee) –  Melbourne VIC14 April 2017
Fun place to work. The enhancing experience at Cotton On taught me the real meaning of work with fun. I learned not only to handle the store but also the closing and opening procedure of the store.

Unfortunately, I had to leave as the travel time from Dandenong to South Wharf DFO was killing
Pros
lively environment

Sales Assistant (Current Employee) –  Tea Tree Plaza SA2 April 2017
I have worked here for almost 6 months, I have received nothing but good reviews and have engaged in all activities and have tried to make the customers feel as welcomed as I possibly can. The people I work with are nothing but nice and fun people.
I have learnt how to open and close the store within 3 weeks and have my own key, it is a great environment and I would suggest the job to anyone who loves keeping busy and who are really good with people.
Pros
making friends, great people, making customers happy and getting compliments
Cons
Having really nasty customers yell at you

Order Picker (Former Employee) –  Brisbane QLD28 March 2017
While I had nothing against the job itself, was very easy and often a job that requires little training, unfortunately, communication, poor management and an overall toxic and clicky workplace made it less than desirable to work for.
Pros
staff discounts
Cons
bad communication, management and toxic workplace.
