  • "Good company that cares about their employees. But at the stores, some management could be really rude, mean and stupid."

    Pros

    You get to learn a lot if you want. I worked at 6 different departments other than my home base. And potentially could be promoted.

    Cons

    Sometimes some of the management could be really stupid and treat people unfairly. It really depends on who you meet, but more than half managers and team leads were mean and rude.

    Advice to Management

    Good company that cares about their employees. But at the stores, some management could be really stupid and messing around. Although I did meet one lovely and encouraging manager too.

    A policy for employee complaint. Some of other retailers/ brands that I worked for have a nice policy to protect their employees and make sure they are valued and treated well & most importantly, fairly. So it's a line that you could complain to if your boss treats you like horribly or corrupted.

    Christmas Casual/Sales Assistant Interview

    Anonymous Employee in Melbourne (Australia)
    Accepted Offer
    Positive Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Myer (Melbourne (Australia)).

    Interview

    three stages
    documentation (i made an impression in the seemingly routine procedure which came in helpful later)
    acting as sales assistants in virtual pop up shop (mention myer one points and features and benefits when selling)
    one on one interview
    the lady who did my documentation remembered me as she was also the lady who interviewed me in the one-on-one, i think that impression helped. I purposefully left an impression by smiling and asking how her day was- simple as that and it made all the difference!
    Previously had no retail experience and it was great just seeing how it's done and they definitely want you to think on your feet!
