Cashier, Sales Associate (Former Employee), Middletown, NY – February 10, 2015
Pros: the discounts and great people
Cons: not many benefits and the pay
- A typical day at work was productive and fast -I learned a lot about P.O.S ( point of sale ) system - My co-workers were for the most part great - The hardest part of the job was maintaining the store by yourself at times, especially on busy days! - The most enjoyable part of the job was making customers happy.
I had two very different experiences with different managers. My first manager was more experienced, an excellent multi-tasker, friendly, and knowledgeable. Which made a typical day very scheduled and easy to follow. I did not have the same experience with the latter manager.
Key Holder/Part Time Manager (Former Employee), Langhorne, PA – October 2, 2014
I learned a lot about time management working for this company and colleagues. Workplace was always pleasant and fast paced. Colleagues were positive. The hardest part of the job was adjusting to so many changes coming from a previous organized business. The most enjoyable part about the job was the coworkers and discount.
supervisor (Current Employee), San Diego,Ca – July 1, 2014
Pros: great management
Cons: rude customers
a typical work day in retail, helping customers and keeping the store standardized, I learned a lot while working with Cotton On i was able to manage a store by myself and problem solve customer issues. The co-workers are great people, very easy to get along with. The most difficult part of this job keeping the store standardized when there is a big sale. But for the most part the whole job is very enjoyable.
Sales Associate (Former Employee), Bloomington, MN – June 17, 2014
Pros: clothing discount
A typical day at work would be going through shipment, answering questions regarding the clothing and its styling. What I learned from that position was patients, some customers can be indecisive of course. Management was not as good as I would have liked, it was kind of unorganized in a few areas. The hardest part of my job probably would have been the commute, just getting to work was a bit of a hassle. The most enjoyable part of my job was the fashion, Cotton On has very trendy clothing.
Merchandising Manager (Former Employee), Dallas, TX – April 27, 2014
Cotton On is a great Australian retailer. It came to the US with great ideas, strategies, and awesome executive teams! The store teams are hard-working and sociable. The management team is great at what they do.
Sales Associate, Customer Service (Former Employee), Vacaville, CA – March 7, 2014
Pros: discount on clothing!
Cons: it was only seasonal
A typical day of work at cotton on was to put the clothes from the dressing room in the correct place, ring up customers, help customers find outfits and keep the overall store looking presentable. I learned how to do inventory and present shelves and display clothing. Management was friendly and helpful as well as all of my coworkers. The hardest part of my job was finding where things went because they changed the store around every week. The most enjoyable part of my job was being able to help people find what they were looking for.

Sales Associate (Former Employee), Concord, CA – February 20, 2014
Recovering store. Greeting the customers. Always busy stocking the new products. Co workers were fun and very helpful. Management needed some better organizational skills. The hardest part of the job was standing for long hours. I enjoyed meeting and greeting all new patrons.
