Great Company to climb the ladder, but be careful of the ever-changing politics and direction!!

Indeed Featured review

The most useful review selected by Indeed
The fast-paced environment where they thrive on ever-changing principles. The only problem is sometimes they move to fast without thinking about the repercussions. Also, their leadership is forever changing with little to no warning, which causes constant spin from the top down. The corporate office is cool and they are always expanding. If this is your first corporate role go for it, you'll learn a lot and be across so much. My only advice is don't get comfortable.


Fas-tpaced, tons of different work, great pay, benefits, great people


The owner isn't the best leader, a lot of spin and longgggg hours!!

Great environment to work in with beautiful offices

It is a great culture that supports you to be great at your job.They talk a lot of wellness and health, only about 50% of the team are truly doing this but it was changing. The head of the company truly care about the customer and the teams

Great culture

Cotton On is a fantastic place to work as the business values its people above anything else. This is a truly global business which can advance any career purely through the scale of the business. Like they say....start here, go anywhere!!


Free gym, great people, great food and loads of parking.


Its a long drive.......but worth it!!

Table tennis table, 20 minute smoko, 30 minute unpaided break, not consisted work

the pay is alright and they normally pay you right, but if your not working for Cotton On as a full time you get no benefits and get treated different and worst, work is not consisted unless its peak period, they hire way to many casuals that they cant supply with work...


if you get fulltime you get treated well


if your casual you get no benefits, and there is to many casuals for them to supply everyone work

A lot of opportunity to learn multiple roles within the one role. High level of communication both internally and externally (including off-shore) Great sense of being part of a team. Great health and wellbeing team/opportunities

he people are extremely committed to and passionate about the company's success. There is a clear focus on people and culture - evidenced by superior comp and benefits and by company initiatives centered on accountability and engagement.

Terrible management

Terrible management who didn't care about employees. No work/life balance. Always cutting shifts last minute. Bullied by management at Typo. Always walking on eggshells when management was around.

exciting and challenging, extremely tight on budgeting

a great company with good values. creates a positive and healthy work environment and staff development. in distribution however, the fast pace and the assurance of customer satisfaction (retail) was maintained to it's best possible results, was done on a tight and sometimes not so realistic level. overall an enjoyable experience but not so good for me with a work/life balance, as I would always want to stay till I finished the day.


monthly bbq, nice enviroment


long days between 10 and 14 hrs usually.

Never dread a Monday

Cotton On is a fantastic retailer to work for! Words that come to mind when I think of Cotton On include fun, energetic, supportive, endless opportunities, dream big and exciting! No day is the same and there are very few workplaces that have so many employees walking in the door with a big smile on their face every Monday morning! Having worked for other retailers and big, global organisations, I can honestly say there are very few companies like Cotton On and I feel so lucky to be apart of such a great working team!


Flexi hours, gym onsite, supportive environment, growing company, healthy cafe onsite

Hard working environment

Very physical workplace. Fast paced and very dusty. I learned how to work in a wear house, how to use an RF scanner and how to do stock take.


Good pay and good exercise


Long hours and too much of a strain on my back
