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

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.
Pros
discounts
Cons
dealing with bad customers

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.

Opportunity to work in customer service and/or merchandising. Great workplace to meet new people, work as a team and learn how to communicate effectively and work efficiently.

I worked there to get some work experience and travel experience with my school. It was calm, a bit burning, and I got to purchase things after we signed out for the day.
Pros
Cool Stuff for sale

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

I’ve leaned a lot while working at the reject shop, the workers there are lovely. They are always willing to help you out when ever you’re struggling.

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.

Genuinely the worst company I have ever had the misfortune of working for. They truly could not care less about you, your health, or your success. Told my Area Manager countless times that my position was causing my mental health to deteriorate and not once did she provide any effective help. They consistently add on tasks to your everyday workload (which is too much in itself) and do not provide wages to cover it, let alone increase your salary. You can expect to work copious amounts of overtime every day with no acknowledgement. Don't even bother to do a good job because you won't get recognised or appreciated for it, and your bosses will not hesitate to point out what you HAVEN'T done as opposed to what you HAVE done. Honestly, if I can deter at least one person from working here then I will sleep better at night. The Reject Shop is the worst possible retail space to work in. I wish I did not have to give it more than zero stars.
Pros
If you're lucky to have a good team. Otherwise none.
Cons
Long hours, demanding workload, little to no rewards, if you're stuck with a bad team then bad luck. No support from Area Managers
