A reasonable organisation but stuck a little in the past
Change Manager (Former Employee) –  Canberra ACT24 September 2017
There is no typical day at work. There are regular scheduled meetings but at any stage of the day someone or a project hits a crisis point.
I learnt very quickly to get the days work out of my so I can deal with the crisis as they arise.
Management were an interesting part of the game. They either didn't wont to know or micromanaged. The best of them trusted their staff to do what they did and did it well.
The hardest part of change management is to guide people down a path without taking dangerous shortcuts. The most enjoyable part was seeing the 'lightbulb' moment when the reason for a structured process is that it makes life easier not harder.

Gso 3/4
GSO 3/4 (Former Employee) –  Canberra ACT22 September 2017
Every day was different, I did various things such as general horticulture, removal of rubbish, Mowing grass, Whipper snippering, High Pressure cleaning (water), Street Cleaning etc.

I did a lot of interacting with the public, I also got pride in my job by seeing the end result, in completion of what the task was.
Pros
Dealing with everyday tasks and seeing the end result.

Manager spends all day watching you on cameras.
Bus Driver (Former Employee) –  Fyshwick ACT15 September 2017
Bad Management. As a casual Special Needs Transport Driver, you will only be called to work if a permanent driver is sick or on leave.
Could be once a week, once a fortnight, once a month. Not suitable if you are looking for regular work.
Pros
Pay rates are reasonable.
Cons
Unfriendly environment.

Unfortunately there wasn't many opportunities for me to develop my skills and experience. Felt like I was stagnating in the section I was in.
