    I have been working at Cotton On full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    the discount of sales assistant in 2012 is quite good.

    Cons

    the only issue i have is that staff are asked to work long shifts everyday and are expected to say yes and when they say no, the higher staff then told the current staff that they weren't good enough for the job and they need to try harder.
    this particular staff member worked 7 hours without meal break and was reduced to tears when she asked to go home.
    she was told to harden up and extra hours was her responsibility.
    they dont care that staff have appointments to attend or have to leave on the dot.
    this particular staff member has missed doctors appointments and an open house so she could find somewhere to live.
    this company does not care for it's staff members.

    Advice to Management

    staff can only work the hours that you roster them on for. do not expect them to be available for shifts they aren't rostered on for.
