I found working at cotton on a okay place no doubt i enjoyed the learning as this was my very first job ever and staff were very patient and helpful , the environment and amazing staff discounts but the only thing to take account was being paid fortnightly which was difficult in a sense of budgeting for two weeks and also resigning was a 4 week notice which i think is way to long. The difficult thing about working in a small store with only 3 other workers was the amount of work that was given and only having one worker stay till close on a weekend
Pros
Staff discounts

On my first day, I was fortunate enough to work along side my sister's best friend who was a manager there. She showed me around, and depleted most of my shyness around the people there. The workers there were great, and would try to strike up conversations with me when I'm quiet. I was pretty shy on my first day since I knew virtually no one there, but a couple of workers did strike up some conversations with me and teaching me how to use the stock taking device. I learned how to stock take and work cooperatively in an environment where everyone is practically focusing and doing the same work as me.

Hardest part of my job is standing up for a long period of time. That can get very tiring, especially when the clothes are at a higher level. My shoulders got tired, and keeping my arms up was hard. On the brighter side, I enjoyed the people there and how happy they seemed to be even after how depressing the job is.
Pros
Free lunch (pizzas), adequate pay rate for a student
Cons
Prolonged hours, 4 hours can feel like 8 hours.

Company is full of energy that eveyday is a new day with ideas that flows around the company, that is shared gloabally to keep the excitement and the joyful feeling alive.
Everyday workoing for the company, theres always something new exciting to do, from dressing up to face painting, of course from the professionals, giving away fun packs for the kids to take home and also free goodies on big day events. Cotton On group is so divers, that we tend to learn new things every of different cultures and just the fact that each individual has something to offer interanlly is amazing. the Cotton on group is more like family instead of a company.
Pros
Funful events weekly to keep the kids and parents entertained.

Usually opening is the easiest part of the day, cash in making sure all tills equal to last nights figures and store is clean, tidy ready for the day. Handling phone calls, stationary orders and stock all in the morning is fun and customers love seeing new stock out. I have worked management hours before and also handled half of the responsibilities management give during the months we had no manager for the store. Co-workers are amazing, everyone gets along and helps out with rack up, customers and house keeping. i'll have to say its the team work that makes the store. The hardest part of the job was busy public holidays or late nights, because you never know how much can go missing , not enough fitting rooms, restocking shelves and tables and racks really fast so we are not low on anything, and finally cashing up at the end of the day can be a challenge. The most enjoyable part of this job is meeting new people, beating targets, stock and House Keeping.
Pros
50% discount on products or items
Cons
Long Hours
