The one that i work at is fantastic. they're super nice and the managers are kind, caring and considerate. The pay that I receive is great. I was only going to work was a Christmas casual but ended up staying. I have received other job offers but stay here because the environment is great!
Great managers, good pay!
No cons really - sometimes it's a bit boring
the working environment was to put it lighty ok the managers were all very friendly minus one who would often bully and close the shop 30 minutes late due to a lack of concern however other than that i was able to make a few friends there
hours were too short manager was a big bully
Since the start of 2021, I have seen staff go from 4 to 2 everyday across most stores. The work load on management has increased, with basically 1 manager left to work loads, finish morning tasks, receive deliveries, while the other manager is left busy on registers for the majority of their shift. Stores are suffering, customers are complaining more, but cutting wages to show they are making huge deceptive profits to satisfy shareholders at cost to staff and customers is more important now. Best stay away, as the company is unrealistic in their expectations of staff and mangers are more slaves than valued employees. A lot of managers are working overtime now off the books to get on top of things. This is why there is a high turnover of store management.
Excessive unpaid overtime, excessive work demands, no time for breaks and little for lunch if your in management.
It was a very full on job constantly moving forwards, I learned the insides and outs of the reject shop. Management looked after us as best they could.. Hardest part of the job is adapting to different circumstances.. all in all the job was good
The reject shop was a very fun, enjoyable place to work at. I learned cash handling, customer service, cleaning, stock rotation and just the ability to use my initiative. The hardest part would've been the customers and managing queues.
dealing with bad customers
Working at the reject shop was very stressful as their management changes very frequently. The training i received was poor and i was expected to figure everything out myself. The hours were low (depending on the manager) but the wage earned was fairly good
My favourite thing about this job was the fact that even though it was a job, I still got excited about coming in to work. If there was an extra shift, it wasn't hard to say yes. This job is fun, comfortable and overall great for someone still in school or uni.
I have really enjoyed working at the reject shop. It can be both slow and fast within the store. I have noticed though that a lot of the customers take our business for granted as it is a cheap shop. Be aware that the hours are really short, they are mainly 3 hour shifts.

It is extremely busy at our store which personally I love. All team members are a great team to work with. I love connecting with the customers. I enjoy the stock work this you need to be fast at and present the shelves well and tidy.
The reject shop I would not recommend to work for anybody they work on intimidation and bullying and what they want you to do and achieve is very unrealistic and the area manager is the worst area manager I’ve ever been associated with he is the biggest bully and intimidate are you will ever work with
I really loved working at the reject shop. They were good with training in store after fling the online training. My only problem was one of the managers, who was a bit up himself and definitely played favourites. I asked for a day off with enough time before the roster came out and was still rostered on that day, I spoke to him about it and he was rude and said it was a rostered day and wouldn’t let me explain that I had asked for it off beforehand
A typical day at the reject shop was fast-paced and you dealt with a lot of people. I learned about how to recover shelves and work on a team. The management was efficient and friendly. The hardest part of the job was manual labour and the most enjoyable was woking with friends after closing.
