Job Culture
Truly a "stepping stone"
Service Supervisor / Night Fill / Part-Time (Former Employee) –  Western Australia18 March 2019
Work Life / Balance is not an option. You work when you're asked to work otherwise nothing. "What can you do for Coles?" is all they're interested in.

Salary is okay. It increases over time now. There are better options out there in the retail sector.

Advancement in your career is minimal and all done in house now with programs. Total years of experience don't matter at all unless the particular store is in desperation.

Line managers are okay and understanding. Unfortunately, their hands are tied in middle & upper management that are non-existent to the average employee.

Job Culture is good. Very broad!

Overall a good stepping stone for greener pastures for the average person.
Pros
Job Culture is solid. Okay pay. Solid stepping stone to greener pastures.
Cons
Work/life balance.

Good and organised
Team Member (Former Employee) –  Alice Springs NT21 May 2019
Helpful and supportive team around you makes work enjoyable and interesting. If willing to work then hours are not an issue. Management depends on manager of store and section.
Pros
good amount of shifts
