productive work enviroment with great clothes
Sales Associate (Former Employee), Bloomington, MNJune 17, 2014
Pros: clothing discount
Cons: organization
A typical day at work would be going through shipment, answering questions regarding the clothing and its styling. What I learned from that position was patients, some customers can be indecisive of course. Management was not as good as I would have liked, it was kind of unorganized in a few areas. The hardest part of my job probably would have been – more... the commute, just getting to work was a bit of a hassle. The most enjoyable part of my job was the fashion, Cotton On has very trendy clothing. – less

Great place to work, very colourful
Sales assistant (Former Employee), Adelaide, SAJune 1, 2014
Pros: discounts on all cotton on products.
Cons: lots of standing
A typical day at work would evolve wearing a bow tie and suspenders and just over all enjoying the experience of dressing up and working. The customers loved our uniforms.

Typo has taught me how to connect with customers on a more personal level. As well as providing training on stock management and the use of different payment equipment.

Good staff to work with.
Retail Assistant (Part-time) (Former Employee), Woodlands, Causeway PointMay 6, 2014
Pros: get staff discount
Cons: long hours and shop is always in a mess no matter how you try to tidy it up.
Cotton On is a good and pleasant place to work at. With good people around. But will be very busy especially in the morning where all the stocks for the day will arrive. And usually the busy period and the shop will be in a mess is during sales period. We don't usually get to go back on time as we have to clean up the store before we head for home.

Productive fun work place
Part time - casual (Former Employee), Lower Hutt, NMarch 25, 2014
Pros: discounts
Cons: on your feet all day, hard work, long hours, over time.
A typical day at Cotton on would be to do SOD (start of day) on the tills and fill out the daily planner for job tasks to do that day. Would then open the store and start serving customers. Through out the day we would do multiple boxes of stock, serve many customers, help customers out with clothing, sizing, accessorizing, cleaning the store then cashing – more... up end of day.
I learned amazing customer service, how to use the register, how to cash up end of day and start of day, banking, stock, stock transfers etc.
Management and co workers are so easy to get along with!
The most enjoyable part of the job is the customers.
The hardest part of the job is keeping the store up to cotton on standard if the store was busy or we had a lot to do that day. Store cleanliness is the the main priority. – less

Lots of fun merchandise
Sales Associate, Customer Service (Former Employee), Vacaville, CAMarch 7, 2014
Pros: discount on clothing!
Cons: it was only seasonal
A typical day of work at cotton on was to put the clothes from the dressing room in the correct place, ring up customers, help customers find outfits and keep the overall store looking presentable. I learned how to do inventory and present shelves and display clothing. Management was friendly and helpful as well as all of my coworkers. The hardest part – more... of my job was finding where things went because they changed the store around every week. The most enjoyable part of my job was being able to help people find what they were looking for. – less
