    I saw lots of retail jobs on Spot Jobs. I work in real estate so I find my jobs through Seek but I did have a look on Spot Jobs and it is more centred around customer service and hospitality.

    Have a look at One Shift. It's aimed at casual / short-term job seekers but usually retail jobs are casual anyway so you might have luck there.

    I'm not too sure about this retail-specific job website that you're looking for.
    I've found most companies don't advertise on their own websites. The job I've just started wasn't featured on the website of the company I'm working for, even though they have an employment section on the website (it's an estate agent).

    Wesfarmers and woolies branded companies only advertise their jobs on their own sites- wowcareers for woolworths, big w, masters, bws, dan murphy's etc and coles, target, kmart, bunnings, liquor land, first choice sites for Wesfarmers.

    Other companies that are part of a chain/owned by the same group typically have an employment section on their websites as well.
    Otherwise look at employment sites like seek and dropping resumes in to places you are interested in.

    Good luck with your search!

    I would resume drop. Most businesses prefer to save the money that advertising a position costs, so if they have a file of resumes people have dropped in, they will check if any of those applicants are suitable before listing it online.

    I worked in a major supermarket; we were told to chuck out resumes. They need to apply online only, through the website.

    I'd also check your local free newspaper's employment section (I always see a couple of ads for retail assistants in our local newspapers).

    And shop windows. I've noticed several local shops (bakery, fruit n veg shop, discount shop, news agency) advertising in their windows and on the noticeboard at the local shopping centre (I guess it's cheaper than listing online and they can have a chat to the person as they hand in their resume).

    Yes, I used to do recruitment for a major supermarket, however I was talking about smaller companies. Also, there's no harm in resume dropping. Worst case scenario, you get the chance to make an impression and get given directions on how best to apply.
