Customer Service Representative (Current Employee) – Mulgrave VIC – 24 October 2017
You get to go to different locations on different days which makes the job interesting but as every other customer service job it becomes exhausting after a certain period of time specially due to the nature of the job. ( Train replacement bus service)
Was treated like a number. After 5 months I was let go at an assignment without explanation or reason. I later found out it was because the client had seen someone stealing product from the warehouse, and I happened to be in the vicinity at the time so it was thought I was in on it. Staff Australia treat their casuals like idiots, are dodgy when it comes to paying their employees, as I experienced on a number of occasions, and have a habit of drawing in potential employees by advertising a job and putting candidates on a completely different assignment to that advertised. I think they and maybe 2 other agencies need to be investigated.
Ridiculous company, use to work for these people years ago, now they lie to you and charge big money to employer and you get less then a good hourly rate, they deal in slave labour, absolutely disgraceful. Manipulating, dishonest.
At work it always strange because I work at different places. The co-workers are good every day Australians.There is no choice you either take the job or no ie some jobs are night shift some day shift,it may be short or long distance drive to work and the starting time is never the same. Work is fun because I enjoy working,the tasks are doable according to my training and experience.I did not encounter any kind of recisim so that was great.
I improved my work ethics such as time management and communication not only that my forklift operation has also improved.
Management is always friendly,am treated with respect.
The work place calture is no different to the Australian work place rules and regulations
I didn't realy find anything hard at the work place.Most of the time things tend to move smoothly.
The most enjoyable part of the job is completing my task at work.I also enjoyed good comments from my fellow workers and management.

Dont work for staff australia. They waste your time and send you on a wild goose chase, play with your feelings tell you you got the job and then tell you you dont have the job. If you have a sick family member that needs caring they will not and dont care they just wont hire you for any jobs yet after telling you that you have a job. Discusting service stay right away......

Staff Australia are absolutely terrible. Terrible work on offer. Low pay. Management....... what Management. The worst i have seen. They are very rude and lack any skills what so ever. They know nothing about their work or the companies that use them. Complete wast of time. I advise that you go to a company that cares
Im a MC truck driver l can driver anything below that level and or higher such as road train l also have my fork license and cert3 in civil construction....My first job they sent me to was forklift work and some machine operating l spent NO more than 4minutes on a fork in the morning and stood in the one spot on concrete for 8hours,being a truck driver for over ten year and lm nearly 50 my back could not take it l was in pain so at the end of the day l called and said the job is unsuited for me and l wasn't told it was 95% warehousing..they paused l new they didn't like my decision l did not get paid for that days work the following week l called they said just wait till that Thursday so l did and nothing the next Monday l called and just got messed around no apology no reason and took no responsibility yep there great
They don't care. Don't let you know what's going on. Don't check up on how you are going at work. Tell you you are on there books for work but when you phone up they say they don't have any work for you. Then you find they advertise jobs you could be doing !!
Packer/picker (Former Employee) – Queensland – 28 March 2017
Too many ruff people where there and didn't care about other worker's. Their can be better workers hired and the workers that want to work and not stuff around while machines are running and fork lifts are running around not stop
Constantly putting jobs up that are not even available. Inconsiderate management. Does not give a dam about its employees at all! They advertise a position available so you call up only to be told we're only creating interest. No wonder this company is losing contracts.
This agency seems very inexperienced compared to Action Workforce who i used to work for. Staff Australia needs an after hours line to call in sick and if there is any shifts available at anytime throughout the night instead of waiting until the morning and getting called in asap. Would definitely save the agency alot of time and stress
Casual store person (Former Employee) – Melbourne, VIC – 30 June 2015
Love the place. Our Management knows how to get the correct job which suits me. Everyday was a good day. Learned how to do RF scanning and pick and pack the orders. Co - workers were part of a team and it was a family environment which I was working. The hardest part was the stock take for the warehouse. Everyday was enjoyable.
