I worked at Coles (More than 3 years)
Work in team in coles were the best interesting part of my job . It creates people self strong , motivated , multi skill knowledge .
It takes a phenomenal amount of self-discipline to start work when you know you don't have to be at the office by 8 a.m.
You are the only person around all day, so there is no outside pressure to be busy.
You must be entirely self-motivated.
You miss out on the camaraderie that stems from working with others day after day.
There are no coworkers to go to lunch with.
Advice to Management
Focus on Quality .
I applied online. The process took 2+ weeks. I interviewed at Coles (Hobart (Australia)).
I applied online for a Coles team member position. About a week later, I was contacted by email saying my Application had been shortlisted, and two days later I secured an interview.
I got to the Coles, dressed up in a full suit, shirt, jacket, tie, slacks and shoes. I got there 10 minutes early. I met the manager and we went into the back room, another manager came into the interview two.
The overall interview was very short, 15 minutes which was how long the email had said it would go for. They only asked me 2-3 proper questions, and asked more questions in relation to my answers.
When the interview finished, I didn't ask any questions, as I'd just gone for another Coles interview at a different location, and I left. Today I contacted them asking about the progress of my application. The manager was in a meeting so I asked if I could leave my name and number.
(NOTICE: As I'm writing this, I am still waiting to hear back about my application, I should hear back tomorrow or Friday, so I just clicked that I accepted the offer.)
