    Pros

    Yeh not much really. Some free coffee and staff leaving parties.

    Cons

    This place is difficult and there's a constant turnover of junior staff who do really menial and labourious roles. There's all this talk about culture but it's all fake and the real problems are ignored and not ever spoken about. The best advice for anyone is to keep your mouth shut and move on.

    Advice to Management

    Nothing will change so there's no point. Perhaps think less about yourselves and more about your staff.

    Application

    The process took 4+ weeks. I interviewed at Canstar.

    Interview

    The interview process was informative and professional. There were several stages: phone interview, in-person interview, in-office interview, and personality/skills testing. The interviewers represented the brand very well - and definitely made me want to work there!
