toxic work environment
drakes is a good place to work for under 16 but once you get over this age they cut back your shifts to keep in budget ranges. the managers are also very discriminating but the other workers are lovely

Stressful if you're not used to multitasking in a fast-paced environment
Management usually give new casuals more working hours for first two weeks, then reduced it to 3-6 hours per week.Paid training provided - lot of paperwork but manageable

Old fashioned
Old fashioned work culture that doesn't seem to want to change. But good family business growth from South Australia first. Pay not so great and long work hours plus overtime.

Great team environment, decent pay
Every Drakes store I have worked for the teams have been friendly and inclusive. The pay is decent and they offer a great work/life balance however in my experience being a casual I have not always received the minimum hours we negotiated before I started.

Good place to work as a first job.
Was a great place to work as a first job, especially during covid employees were fairly well taken care of. Lots of larger issues with management and higher ups that translated into poor behaviour from a lot of those staff members. If you’re looking to get into any supervisory or management roles make sure you’re prepared to stand your ground when it’s required. Was given no training aside from being initially showed how to use the point of sales system on front end. It’s a good company to work for as a first job but compatibility of hours with Uni study was very poor. Availability was provided and updated every couple months and rosters were always done incorrectly even after availability updates. Would also provide that they wanted you to work a particular pattern of hours and then change it before they’d be legally required to provide you a part time contract. In changing what they wanted you to work they would also resent that you couldn’t work exactly at the times they wanted you too.Management lack accountability for issues of their own doing and are unwilling to admit they are the cause of their own problems. This is mainly why it would suit younger staff as a first job, particularly those at an age where they will not be expected to take on any larger responsibilities.
