Night Filler (Former Employee) – Melbourne VIC – 21 June 2018
This company I was working for had given us a work experience job. This was required by my school to give us a one week work experience.
The working environment was friendly and overall helpful to our experience around Coles supermarket and how it runs on a daily basis. We are required to restock shelves, bake home-brand deserts and clean up around floors and to take the rubbish out.
It was a friendly and a well worth experience I will never forget
Love my team members, upper management on the other hand
Deli Assistant (Current Employee) – Adelaide SA – 18 June 2018
All team members that I have worked with have always been hard-working, very hard-working to the point where some are doing the job of a manager for no extra pay or acknowledgment. Upper management have no idea what actually happens on the shop floor and unrealistic expectations-when you give more, all they want is more. Hours during the summer months are quite generous and fair however, winter months are a different story.
The pay rate for Coles is pretty decent, though after working there for a short time you'll find that nobody enjoys their time there. The upper management try to sell the 'family' angle, meanwhile the company cuts hours and refuses to hire new people when stores are understaffed.
Worked for a year and they refused to teach me anything outside of my field of work, so there was next to no chance of promotion or movement to different areas.
Recommend for a short time period while looking for something better.
They provide free foods, tea and coffee in the break room.

I Had worked in Coles , Two different location in Different state . I Saw each one different then others. One store management so comfy that makes you to work for them and feel Happy and Loyal and other makes you angry and makes you quit the Job . Same company , same job and same salary but two different standard.
Store Manager (Former Employee) – Doonside NSW – 11 June 2018
Learned good management skills. As part of my role, I have worked on multiple documents which include confidential & sensitive information. I always maintain integrity & confidentiality of company values & data while working with various internal & external stakeholders. I have developed rich skills working in very sensitive environment, keeping confidentiality of my task and keeping interests of business partners and stake holders. Apart from that I have worked in customer service keeping high level of discretion.

Unfortunately there was never going to be an opportunity to better myself even tho when applying for the job they promise alot. It was a good job love working in customer service but at times felt let down by the company.
