management will lie to you and stab you in the back
Vegetation clearance officer (scoper) (Former Employee) – South Australia – 15 February 2016
the workers are a great bunch to work with but management aren't they lie to you to make it sound like they are willing to work with you but when you join its a "do it or find another job" attitude half of them don't know what it takes to do the job properly in the field and if you make a small mistake they give you a written warning so find some where else to work
no two days are the same
no job security if they want you gone start looking for another job
Productive & enjoyable workplace epecially for those who like to work away from home
Horticulturist (Current Employee) – South Australia – 12 August 2018
Great sense of team when working 'On-Ground'
I have learnt quite a lot about the processes involved when managing vegetation around powerlines
Management does appear to be a 'footy Club' here in South Australia.
As far as the workplace culture goes "It's not what you know, it's who you know"
If you're looking to advance within the company in South Australia, you will not- unless you play for the same football team. Workplace nepotism. Which is a shame, because the skills on-ground, far outweigh the skills in South Australia's upper management (education, training, REAL knowledge vs office knowledge). Which is a loss to the progression and betterment of Active Tree Services SA division
But the travel and people you get to meet, make it all worth it, if you can look past the exclusivity.
