    I worked at Coles (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Work in team in coles were the best interesting part of my job . It creates people self strong , motivated , multi skill knowledge .

    Cons

    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 .

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Coles (Cairns (Australia)) in June 2017.

    Interview

    Got job interview today , I was wearing white long sleeve with collar, black pants and black shoes, the interview went well. I was really nervous but they made me feel comfortable. A man and a lady manager interviewed me, they browsed my resume. And ask easy questions since I don't have any experience that I am applying for. Just be yourself and be honest.
