The most useful review selected by Indeed
my day to day included picking and packing stock ready to send out to all stores, also with the general tidying and cleaning up after myself to ensure a well maintained work area.

Decent summer job for school finishers

0 interview, 0 experience needed base rate $22 an hour with casual loading and double rates on Sunday with full time hours over the summer period however what the ad doesn't mention is hours will be reduced to 0 beginning of Jan, management clearly doesn't care about staff as in 2 months they'll never see you again and it's probably the most mind numbing work possible.Great for someone who's just finished school and wants to grind out a few thousand dollars before uni or a holiday almost everyone else will be the same age as you so it's a good way to make friends too

Pros

Decent money, good coworkers, great staff discount

Cons

Exhausting, mind numbing days, awful managers, treated like cattle

Very busy yet exciting warehouse

Traffic management is very good, its just sometimes people doesnt care of their own risk. Even people do the right thing, some not because their too lazy to abide rules

Dont do it

Terrible company to be employed under. Management dont treat you human,just a number. Promises not adhered to. Staff try to stay positive but it's difficult.

Learned how to pick through rf scanner for the first time and had great staff teaching me

I enjoyed working with the staff and making new friends, learning how products come from the warehouse and then distributed to the stores. An exciting process getting deliveries quickly done on time and the staff coordinating together to ensure a smooth distribution process.

The co-workers were fun and easy to work with

During my time at Cotton On DC I found the workers to be hard work, motivated people. They were also very easy to get on with. The training was exciting and I enjoyed it.

Horrible place to work

Management are really bad. Very much about nepotisim and cronies being put on board to be 'given' a job. Attitude of line managers to the job , the workers and the customer is astonishingly poor. Where I worked my line manager had no experience, lack ability and did not want to listen to suggestions; but because he was a close friend of the overall warehouse manager got the job and of course kept it!! Real pity you can't give a negative star

Pros

you get paid

Cons

everything else in the DC

Fun and productive place to work with lovely people

Supervisors are nice and encouraging Pay is really good especially for students Work is mostly constant but you only know if you are working 8pm the night before there is no roster which can be very annoying if you are trying to study.

Good pay and good exercise

Long hours and too much of a strain on my back

Cotton On Warehouse

Clean place to work, well set out salaries. Although I'm looking for a full time job and they weren't offering me that.
