I worked at Coles Group full-time (more than 3 years)

Pros

A lot of change happening there right now, the potential to take this to a great company and competitor to WW.

Cons

Many people there have been there so long that the culture suffers as people are unwilling to change.
Coming in from the outside, there is little acceptance for new ideas

    Deceitful Company

    • Culture & Values

    Former Employee - Anonymous Employee

    I worked at Coles Group

    Pros

    The people I was lucky enough to come in direct contact with were very enjoyable, good working conditions, the benefits were great, a lot of unruly customers werent a problem at The Cole Group, a calm cool and collected work environment for the most part.

    Cons

    While involved with this company many mistakes were made while reviewing background checks and passing to employers. Identity fraud claims were a regular issue, one day backgrounds would come up clear, the next day there would be many red flags. Out of fear of being called incorrect or decietful, many were changed and revised to help company issue. Eventually quit because of relocation and guilt. Personal apologies to everyone who had a check come back incorrectly and were lied to by this company.

    I worked at Coles Group part-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    Very good wage rate, specially for the casual workers.
    While on the other hand great benefits for permanent employees as well as great chances of excelling for the career oriented, dedicated workers.

    Cons

    Not as good in comparison to competitors as far as working conditions are concerned.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    If the management keeps on rewarding opportunists over quality workers, the company will eventually lose its humanity, and not to mention opportunists lack the connection and loyalty to the employer at hand, in other words they don't care about anything other than themselves, so its the company's choice as to whom they want to invest into; the dedicated, quality workers or the opportunists.
