They were really helpful in helping me grow. Was an amazing place to start working and I was able to really flourish in places like register because i had a wonderful team who made me feel comfortable and not undermine my confidence, which has happened elsewhere unfortunately.

No day was ever boring at this workplace, fellow staff were friendly and hard working and it was always fun to come to work. It was hard during sale and christmas periods but that made the job more interesting. I would return to this store in a heartbeat.
Pros
Fun and lots to discover
Cons
christmas craziness

Australian was great place to initially work with guaranteeing a great learning experience and management roles. The shop always gave you the opportunity to work independently which was great for management roles.
Pros
Great colleagues and team
Cons
Leadership

business here is very slow and there isn't much to do through the day if you're casual you may be sent home early frequently. the warehouse itself is filled with random junk that isn't merchandise
Pros
nice staff
Cons
not busy

Many of the staff were welcoming. I found this job a good base point in learning about retail businesses. Although I found overall organisation of the company a bit chaotic.
Pros
most customers are friendly
Cons
poor system for stock ordering

My position is all about learning creating expanding and having fun with the customers. If you aren't able to do any of this then don't work for them as you will not get the desired results in my review summary, (work and have fun). The days can be pretty full on with promotional setups, stock processing and merchandising happening in one day. I have learnt a lot more here about how a business works in relation to KPI's. You treat the store as if it were your own. Management are very approachable most times when they aren't flat out themselves. Co workers are also a lot of fun to work with but unfortunately you don't get to spend a whole day together. There really aren't any hard parts to this job. The most enjoyable part is when it is really busy especially at Christmas cause the atmosphere is noisy and bustling with loads of people having a great time trying all the demo products in store.
Pros
Having fun
Cons
Working solo a lot of the time

Spent 3 months working there as a Christmas casual. Great environment and was well managed in the most stressful time of the year for retail.

a typical day at work would be either greeting customers, handing them catalogs and helping them find what they were looking for or i would be on the till serving customers, bagging their purchases and putting through their payments. i learnt how to follow CHOICE which was the way they ran the company, i also learnt how to operate a different till system, how to make phone orders, how to assist people in finding out what it was they were looking for and i learnt how to manage difficult customers.
Cons
long hours during the christmas time

Cons
i was treated like a kid too much when im trying to show that i can be mature
