A lot of hours a day

Indeed Featured review

The most useful review selected by Indeed
It was good but I didn't stay for long. When I had to call in sick managers would seem annoyed and told me to tell them a week before as if I can predict stuff like that. They would do that then change my roster in the same week. lol

Pros

good money

Cons

long hours but depends on you

productive, great workers

you dont do too much special, just sock shelves and serve customers, there are times where it is very boring and it seems like it drags on forever.

Pros

easy

Cons

boring

Poor management

Management is slack there's no career progression at all no opportunities to move up, not secure work your employed as casual and stay as casual you can't move up the ladder as much as you show you are willing to learn

Pros

15 percent discount

Poor management, very depressing culture.

In my personal expiernce I dreaded every shift, the management was appalling, I worked there at 16 years old and the manager would leave me by myself in the store on my 4th shift and go shopping. I got asked to leave after two years because I couldn't work on the same day as my HSC exam which was a big red flag for me to leave.

Pros

Good pay, flexibleish

Cons

Bad management and a lot of aggressive customer.

Good entry level job.

Its a good entry level job. It comes with its pros and cons like every job but with the reject shop majority of your expirence will be good. I will warn that some managers are prone to "favouritism" between team members at certain stores.

Pros

Good pay. Entry level job. Easy to learn the ropes.

Cons

Odd break hours

Hated every second here

The only good thing was interacting with the customers, other than that, the management and general environment made it really hard for me to stay positive. I got absolutely bullied there and I would certainly recommend to exit this job advertisement.

Pros

Decent pay

Cons

Managers

How The Reject Shop really is

This place is the worst to work at, they're toxic, unenthusiastic and make any excuse just to fire you. I will 100% not recommend even if it's seasonal or not it's not worth your time.

Pros

Leaving or not even applying

Cons

No breaks and rude bosses/employees

Would not work there

Worked as a Christmas casual throughout December-Feb. Long shifts, incredibly understaffed and team members weren't friendly. Overworked and was repeatedly guilt-tripped by manager. Little training given and was expected to handle large rushes of customers alone on busy days.

Pros

Good experience

Cons

Long hours, severely understaffed

dont go there

A toxic work environment is one where employees find it difficult to work or progress in their careers due to the negative atmosphere created by coworkers, supervisors, or the company culture itself.

Pros

leaving

Cons

putty up with nasty individuals

Can be a fun workplace

I have been employed with TRS for nearly a year. Always on registers . Hours vary some weeks I get 3 hours now that were busy I get 15 but each shift I’m always on registers. It get really busy so there’s no chance of working on floor. Company doesn’t care for employees.

Pros

Some team members are nice

Cons

Have to wear a head seat always
Was this review helpful?

Very enjoyable and fun workplace

Perfect job for high school or university students as hours and rostering are very flexible. Very enjoyable work environment, including in peak trading periods like Christmas. Frequently have the opportunity to collaborate on tasks with other team members and have definitely developed friendships through this job.

Pros

Good pay rates
