Factorie was one of the coolest work environments. All the staff were around the same age, and the customers were the same. Store was a really cool atmosphere. Unfortunately the overall experience was let down by an average manager who gave the absolute minimum hours and had clear favoritism amongst the staff. There was really average support for closing staff, we were expected to stay over time cleaning the store from top to bottom and we weren't paid for this. Sometimes it took up to an hour. And if it wasn't done you got in trouble the next day. Would definitely work there again under new management.
Pros
Fun work environment
Cons
Poor hours, manager, messy, poor support for staff

I didn't know much about customer service, customer engagement and professionalism but working at factorie has changed all that. The experience I got is overwhelming, they allowed me to be free and be myself so that I can do my job better... I'll forever be greatful for the knowledge I accumulated while I was working at factorie

The most enjoyable thing about factories was the discounts and all .. not enough friendly staff. This is all I have to say. They really need to pick their staff wisely as their not the best staff to work with .. their all to fake.

I typically worked weekends which were the busier days of the week. I enjoyed being given responsibility at a younger age of just 17 to open and close the store, as well as working with a team who I created a great bond with. I enjoyed going to work and meeting the targets set by head office. This was made much easier because I enjoy fashion and people. My managers were always so encouraging and provided good feedback which also made me enjoy coming to work each day. The difficult part of the job was when we did not meet targets, but my manager was always a positive person who encouraged us to pick ourselves up and aim to reach the next target.

This place absolutely horrible. one of the most unorganised companies I have ever worked for. they never had anything on time, the manger was a racist and homophobic to the girls who were dating in our team. they never knew what anyone was doing to communication sucked there. they should be embarrassed to even call themselves a business

Fast fashion is a horrible industry to work in and Cotton On LTD is probably ome of the worst. We didn't have a manager for a month and I basically had to work everyday on my own because other workers wouldn't pull their weight and there was no authority to contact. Neglected my wants and needs as a worker and the regional manager was a complete imbecile. Good job for a highschooler for a Summer but otherwise do not bother.

working here here was growth experience for me personally while there were many negatives. I learned so much and was able to grow emencaly from the negatives . I had no support from head office management and learn to work independently and well under pressure the admin skills I learnt from here put me in a great position for my current role. I have been able to adapt easily to admin and with all the customer complaints I dealt with I am able to resolve my queries with our members well . Most enjoyed part of my job has to be my team we had a great bound that I will carry forever they made leading them seem very easy

Everyone I met there was really sweet and I especially looked up to the manager and senior staff. Work was organised and I always had a job to do while on shift. Staff helped me learn to work and learn the Shop layout to best perform my duties
Pros
Discount items
Cons
Nowhere to sit

A typical day at Factorie is very quiet, but is an enjoyable workplace. The management team are very fair, nice and responsible. The most enjoyable thing about working at Factorie is the satisfaction of helping customers find what they want, and also completing visual merchandising. The hardest part of the job would be having to deal with thieves and the abuse they dish out.
Pros
Amazing benefits, nice co-workers
Cons
Lots of theft

Working at Factorie was a good job. Awesome staff benefits with clothing discounts. There is a lot of effort made to support team members from Head Office through the initiatives but more could be done for retail staff
Pros
Good discounts
Cons
