Productive and fun workplace
I really enjoyed working at the Cotton On Group, it was an easy but rewarding job. I was on the registers a lot, scanning and bagging items and then other times just fixing things up on the shop floor. The only thing that some people might find annoying is you have to ask 3 things to customers at the counter:
1. if they want a WAP (with any purchase) item for $5, and if they say no, you have to explain features/benefits and try and convince them to buy one

2. if they are a member of cotton on perks and if not, you need to try and sign them up

3. If they want to donate to the cotton on foundation by buying any of the charity items


It's a lot to have to say especially when most customers just say 'no, no, no" and get really agitated when you try to sell them stuff they don't want. Not to mention there is pressure from managers to sell add-ons and a lot of competition between the stores. You do get used to it though.


Another downside - I was employed as a Christmas Casual, and there were way too many other christmas casuals, meaning there wasn't a lot of shifts to go around. I was only rostered on for about 2 shifts the whole of December. Luckily, I was able to grab extra shifts and take on cover shifts to work more, otherwise it is disgusting how little work we actually get. I was devastated about not being kept on too, considering how hard i worked to achieve the KPIs and always saying yes to extra shifts. So just keep that in mind if you apply there for Christmas.

Fun workplace - lacks communication
Was told before I started my position was permanent then I became temporary for the Christmas peak. Whilst trying to figure out what was happening there was mixed communication amongst managers and eventually I was forgotten.
I worked really hard whilst employed and received a lot of praise from managers, but this was quickly tainted by what I can only imagine was other staff feeling threatened and then reporting my work to be lacking.

I know this review is a little negative but I did enjoy working there and would hope to do so in the future

If your not in with the “it” crowd forget about advancing
