Associate (Former Employee) – Temecula, CA – December 6, 2016
This was my first job and though I've spent over 3 years with them, I saw no advancement aside from a 50 cent raise. If you're looking to move with a company and grow, this probably isn't your best bet. Otherwise, it's a great place to work for your first job, especially if you enjoy customer service. Taught me a lot about entry level customer service and allowed me to experience tasks that assistant managers and managers deal with in order to receive experience that way. Co-workers were a blast to be with and the environment overall was enjoyable to work in.
Great discounts for employees and great environment to work in.
Sales Associate (Current Employee) – Newport News, VA – October 4, 2016
This is the first job I've had where all the employees get along and work together and I love it. If I had to change anything I would want to raise my pay rate to something a little more realistic for a young man who has bills to pay. Besides the low pay rate I love my job and I am very eager and always ready to work.
Productive and fun working environment with clothes
Handling any and all customer service issues (Current Employee) – Freehold, NJ – November 24, 2016
A typical day at would be opening and closing register procedures. Managing staff while doing paperwork. Running go backs and clean up the store as well as working shipment every single day. Replenish clothing and do floor sets. Also what I've learned is how to multi-task and be able to handle, a fast paced environment, and become a better manager. My opinion about my management is that I believe they can be ungrateful sometimes but I learn to have fun regardless. As for my co-workers they're great hard workers and I adore them. The hardest part of the job is in the morning times when I'm stuck alone from 9:30am-2pm and having to do everything at once. The most enjoyable part of the job would be the teamwork to get work done for district visits and floor sets.
we get out of work on time, shipment isn't so bad, teamwork
Team Member (Current Employee) – Orlando, FL – September 27, 2016
A typical day at work is arduous, but the payback in customer involvement and appreciation is worth the hours. Management is well composed and orderly, but slightly micro-managed. I have learned that our workers and store are highly capable despite being overstocked and under-employed. My co-workers are great, able to keep things light and controlled. The hardest part of the job is keeping the store up to par, and the most enjoyable is helping a customer find what they need.

Key Holder (Former Employee) – Long Beach, CA – September 27, 2016
Working for Cotton On was a great experience that gave me the opportunity to use the skills I have acquired over the years in a brand new store. Since I was part of the opening of this location , I had an opportunity to learn first hand as to what it takes to open a business from a successful operation point of view .I was able to train and foster great relationships with my coworkers, many of whom have never worked in retail before, with the proper tools to do great in retail. I enjoyed coming to work everyday with set goals and expectations of from my how to exceed what was expected of us as a team .
Great opportunity to learn and grow .
Down season hours did not let put up all the discount shipment we received .
Sales Associate (Former Employee) – Norfolk, VA – January 11, 2017
A typical day at work is reviewing daily goals that need to be met, folding and keeping store in tact at all times, I learned how to properly fold clothes and how to display items to get better sales. co-workers are fun and bubbly, brought a lot of energy to work setting. The hardest part of the job would be keeping store completely tidy at all times during very busy times. The most enjoyable part of my job was helping customers put outfits together or helping with whatever I could assist them in.
This was my first retail job and it was seasonal, so I worked during the busiest time of year, yet management and all my co-workers were very nice, they took the time to train me thoroughly and accepted all my questions, and were understanding about balancing my work schedule with my school schedule. The hardest part of the job was maintaining floor appearing and stocking, everything else was highly enjoyable.
Retail Associate (Current Employee) – Garden City, NY – January 10, 2017
Cotton On is a place where you can express your individuality through your own personal style. There's theme days where everyone participates and can win a gift card. The vibe there is very calm and every one is easy going. We all work together as a team and get the job done.
Co workers are what makes this job enjoyable, if you have a strong relationship/ friendship as a base and can meet eye to eye with your co workers, it makes things less stressful. You learn to work together as a team, and appreciate the quality of work being done.
Great team experience, goal oriented
Organziation after closing takes longer than expected
Sales Associate (Former Employee) – Chesapeake, VA – July 2, 2016
Working for Cotton On was exciting and a new experience for me. Working with people close to age and seeing them move up in management. They always had your best intrest in mind and made sure you was alight.
Retail Sales Associate (Former Employee) – San Jose, CA – January 10, 2017
This was my second retail job and it was definitely different than my first retail job. The environment was different but I got along with all of the workers there. However, hours were very little and you are usually asked to cover a person's shift every week.
Seasonal Sales Associate (Former Employee) – Rancho Cucamonga, CA – September 12, 2016
A typical day at Cotton-On consisted of interacting with guests and telling them about the deals of the week. During my time there I learned the procedure for folding clothes and assisting guest(s) with completing their transaction via electronic cash register.
consistent work flow, great atmosphere, reasonable hours
