- The opportunities here are endless. I have been able to get such a broad range of experiences in such a short time. I feel that my career has developed so much faster at Coles than it could have elsewhere - it provides so many incredible opportunities and experiences.
- Part of working in a large business is that there are a lot of processes and people you need to engage with to make things happen. It can be frustrating to try and action things with barriers in the way.
- The hours can be pretty long compared with other companies, however this isn't too strictly enforced. Most people I've come across are motivated to go the extra mile, and I've never had a problem with it; I like the work I'm doing, and I feel like Coles takes care of its team members well
- At times there's long working hours - but you'd get that in any workplace!
