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.

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.

fast paced and worked hard, management is good if you have the right ones, area managers can ride you hard if you dont satisfy them enough and get enough work done

- usually fixed stuff on the shelf, did registers, sweep the floor, stocktake
- management is okay, quite collaborative teamwork required

- didn't get a lot of shifts ( maybe 1 or 2 a week )

Great place to work, pay is fair, conditions fair, can be a bit tight on staffing numbers.
Management changes a bit. I like the discount card and occasional store credit vouchers. Never throw a xmas party though

Stocking and cleaning shelves, assisting customers and using the box crusher.
The hardest part of the job was when there was no work to do.

I enjoyed the work environment.

As I was doing Work experience I found the Management and Staff very helpful.

often customers will need help so if the store was arranged better, it would allow for employees to get more work done. very fast paced in peak hours.

As it was my first work experience placement at the start of my third (9) year of highschool I learnt how a retail company works like in a local shopping centre.
