I can’t remember any specific examples as pricing is always changing for the 15000+ sku’s that Coles carries. However on average...

I am sure there is. I never had any need to contact HR. WHat was the general issue you had?
15/06/2018 - 00:26
lol you are assuming I was in a management role?
15/06/2018 - 00:25
To be perfectly honest I did not enjoy the day to day work. I had worked for the company for a while, but I had only done so in a couple of...

Alcohol yes, smokes I don’t know as I don’t smoke

Whilst I would have loved to get an extra discount, Coles did look after me in terms of salary so I can't complain too much. I couldn't...

haha no. I do get 2 cards though. However I believe all PT/FT staff get that. Also it doesn't stack :(

[@LoveBargain15](/comment/6049374/redir): All of this is factored into when forecasts are created. The Easy Ordering system creates a...

I am in my very early 30's. My previous experience has mainly been in Accounting and Finance for one of the big accounting firms. I have a...

Can you give any examples of this. It isn't something I have worked on, but it is also something I have not noticed myself.
13/06/2018 - 22:54
Hopefully something like that is on it's way. Fresh Produce operates differently to the other departments in the store. All stock is...
13/06/2018 - 22:38
Unfortunately I have not worked within loss prevention to know the plans for self checkouts. However, I do know, that yes, theft just like...

Whilst I will not reveal my exact salary, I was paid 6 figures, although this was a TFC (Total Financial Contribution) package (included...
13/06/2018 - 22:24
In terms of slotting fees, it is definitely not called that at Coles/Australian retail. To be honest it is one of the areas I probably have...

You can also use shortcuts on the self checkout. 1 = bananas 6 = carrots etc.
13/06/2018 - 22:14
This sounds more like a store training issue rather than something that the company is trying to intentionally do. Trust me, there has been...
13/06/2018 - 22:13
There is usually not direct payment. It usually is via a volume rebates that are negotiated with individual suppliers. However these...

I have no idea of Woolies ownership so I cant comment on that
13/06/2018 - 22:04
Weekly sales items are usually locked in about 14 weeks from promotion. They are usually decided based on meetings with suppliers and what...
13/06/2018 - 22:04
As an example. If you see something in a Woolworths or other Coles store that your local Coles does not stock request a staff member to do...

I was reading the thread about [the guy who worked at Coles/Woolworths](https://www.ozbargain.com.au/node/384167) and saw that there were...

It depends on when the staff member does markdowns. They are supposed to do daily checks, but it could be at 6am, 9am or even midday...
13/06/2018 - 21:29
If you want to really be annoying/persistant ask the store member to check the stock on hand. Both the major supermarkets now work with...
13/06/2018 - 21:28
Any price decreases such as markdowns are loaded immediately. Any price increases are loaded at the requested time (in this case midnight),...

Yep, thats exactly right. Its a quick visual way to check bread expiry dates. If the tags are different colours, the expiry dates are...
