Indeed Featured review

The most useful review selected by Indeed
Good if you're content with eating 3 square meals a day. A job for the complacent not for the ambitious ones. Pay is enough to barely survive each week not to live the boss life. You'll end up being a window shopper looking at all the things you can't afford in the store because you are on 700 dollars or less for 5 days of work. The work isn't too difficult though.

Cons

Pay is 30 percent under the national average.

Always different workers on a daily basis but overall a great bunch of blokes I was lucky enough to work with. The Melbourne interstate boys are top b

Overall a great company to work for and a bunch of good blokes to work with. There is work available providing you do the right thing by the company and your fellow workers by showing up on time and enthusiastic ready to complete the set out work. It's not for everybody. It's fast paced and heavy lifting is required at times and resstacking pallets in a fast paced environment

mainly paid container rate not per hour therefore the boys are motivated to work straight through so they can leave earlier.

unpacking contents of freight containers on the pallets and wrapping completed pallets and staging of these wrapped pallets with a forklift. if boys work quicker their hourly earnings increase because they can leave when their job is done.

Pros

duration depends on work effort

Cons

could be cold storage, container delays and can be mentally and physically frustrating.

Stressful place to work at times

Life and work balance is difficult to maintain while working for 3rd party containers. Recruitment through to business development and operational requirements & site auditing.

Stress free work

The work didn't give any stress, easy at time and harder at other times. The work involved team work, and without a team it made the work harder to do

Fun place to work

The worker are very good as most of them come from overseas and this is a perfect place to start their lives in Australia, management are that not good they know people come from overseas and need work so they take advantage and threat people.

Good culture but wages are not fair

Great crew to work with but management got greedy and cut wages it’s a hard job and the salary involved is not fair. It use to be work hard get rewarded now your hard work goes becomes just another number to balance the amount of inexperienced staff which is hired daily

Pros

Easy to get a job if you have a vehicle

Cons

Break your back if you stay long enough

Basic View

Would Work from 6 onwards, had great times meeting different peaopl taking on 40ft containers and seeing all kinds of different variety in products. Easy part is just staying on task, hard part is the transfer of weight if technique is not on par with pace of work. Injuries major ones at that can occur. the culture was always happy and well mannered.

Pros

coffee

Cons

Inexperienced forkies

You meet new people everyday and work in a fast-paced enviorment the supervisors, fot the most part don't care about giving you a headsup on when youre going to work

good employees, tough work

while you work with good people, moving the products inside the truck container can be very taxing on the body as they are heavy. Management is not the greatest but has improved since i started.

Pros

work with good people

Cons

heavy lifting is required
