Administration/Logistics/Stores (Former Employee) – Dalby QLD – 4 June 2017
basically 10 hour days. some days were a lot longer. Construction industry is what it is. My job could change daily and thats what i liked about it. I had great managers and would work with them again. Great people to work with and gave me a chance to prove myself in various areas along with training
Thiess was an amazing company to work for with brilliant supportive managers that became a second family.
Incite - Document Management Programmer (Former Employee) – Newman WA – 9 May 2017
I would love to return to Thiess who is now CPB Contractors however the work was FIFO and unfortunately this is not suitable for my situation. They have amazing management and support from the bottom to the top. I would highly recommend this institution for employment.
Mechanical Superintendent (Former Employee) – Roy Hill WA – 29 March 2017
Well at Roy Hill as all trades are working with each other that's mechanical fitters boiler/makers welders electrical trades Riggers and T/A. What I learnt that we all worked as a team and its was good to see our management supported us all the way from bad times to competition. The work place culture was excellent and the hardest part of the job was saying good bye to all and the most enjoy part of the job was our completion date on time.
Customer Service Officer (Former Employee) – Hallam VIC – 15 March 2017
Took 2 years for them to offer me a full time job instead of recruitment. Happy environment. Truck drivers were fantastic to work with. Management very non committal. Whilst i was there 6 staff were offered career advancement only to have it unoffered at the ladt minute. Very high turn over of staff due to their non committment.
Thiess have always endeavoured to progress the individual
Plant Operator (Former Employee) – Curtis Island QLD – 16 November 2016
I have obtained a great deal of skills enhancement as a result of working for Thiess. They were pro active in providing opportunities to improve on existing skills and to learn new skills. Very safety conscious and this created a constant reminder (vigilance) as you carried out your working duties which stays with you in life as well. Safety was paramount in that we had prestart and close down meetings each day and safety talks. Methods of work (recording) done daily also enhanced compliance with safety during tasks and for people in and around machinery. Any form of harassment or discrimination was not tolerated.
Fantastic project, supportive management, great staff and team
Labourer/Pilot Escort Driver/Traffic Control (Former Employee) – Yandicoogina WA – 8 September 2016
A typical day of work started with a pre-start and exercise to warm up and stretch for the day.
I learned about respecting your colleagues, the importance of safety along with consistent productivity, all aiming for the same goal.
Management were very supportive and encouraging.
My co-workers were from all walks of life, different ages, cultures and backgrounds. It was an eye opener being associated with such a broad spectrum of people, from working as a team to socialising during breaks. Everyone looking out for each other and having a great comradery.
Hardest part of the job was leaving when the contract finished, I loved it.
Most enjoyable part was being able to achieve my daily set goals and being appreciated for my efforts.
FIFO - Great colleagues, like a family. Great accommodation and meals included
Many of the personnel on site were highly skilled,while many lacked even basic skill levels,However,direction & supervision were sorely lacking.
CO,Crane operator (Former Employee) – Roy Hill,project. – 1 August 2016
A good place to work,although their resources management skills were,not up to scratch for such a large project.Large numbers of workers were left with little to do on a daily basis.This resulted in low morale throughout the workforce.
Food & accomodation were excellent.GYM & other amenities were very good.
Poor communication between management &, supervisio, resulting poor productivity.
Trainer/Assessor (Current Employee) – Hazelmere Perth – 17 July 2016
Start at 5am and work through the day until 4pm. Training indigenous trainees and apprentices. HSE advisor at 96% compliance. Workshop supervision when required. Implemented all site management plans. The rewards can be great, but you need to put the work in.
