    I personally loved working at Cotton On! It is a company that is growing, something I loved being a part of. There is always something to do. If you are willing to put in the work without constantly being recognized I recomment it. There is always something new coming and great opportunities to be promoted!


    Pay was low for the amount of work. As a key holder, I found myself feeling like I was doing the same amount of work as the assistant manager with a lot less pay. Sometimes it was unorganized but its definitely a good fit for some people. Quick employee turnover.

    Advice to Management

    More incentives to sales associates. Provide benefits and recognition so that they view cotton on as more than a step to the next thing.

    The interview took place in the food court of a different mall than the location for which I applied for. It was a group interview, about 5-7 people. A question would be asked and we went around the table giving our answer/example. It was a very relaxed, laid back interview.
