The CEO will do anything to undercut the employees and the Victorian/Tasmanian manager has no idea how to back or support staff members, basically both are total fools as managers and are obviously well over paid for the management rolls they hold for the job that they do.

Unethical, backstabbing and toxic culture. They under pay especially good experienced staff. Claim to plenty of on going work which is just not the case There are some ethical traffic companies out there but not many. I worked there as a team leader and it was a nightmare. Many false allegations and lies. I am now 58 and have a history of 15 years in law enforcement, engineering and teaching. This was by far the worst employer ever including other traffic companies.
Pros
None
Cons
as stated. very negative unethical

do not bother if you want to keep your sanity, uncoordinated, lacking in decent and confident leadership, a purple circle if you don't fit you will not be treated well, the management are aloof and ignorant, some of the workers are great people some not so, some are worse than a nightmare,

Altus wants to know who breaches their rules & brings the company into disrepute. But when you tell them about the breaches being done you get the sack.

A typical day as a traffic controller with you arrive at the office or on site depending where you are sent for work. There will be a toolbox then when that is completed the supervisor or man in charge of the job that will hand out ROLs and TCPs or the job at hand, then we go out and plan where the set up should be then we set it up. while the job is in progression we are meant to watch the traffic for any potential hazards that may to occur that will injur the contrustion workers and try to stop any accidents from occuring. Then when the contruction job is finished you pack up the site and leave.

Stressed not knowing what hours you are going to work, when at work always worried about what incident reports people are going to put in about you, mostly not true, and management only listens to one side of the story. Probably the worst traffic company in Australia, bad culture all round.

Pros

Cons
Non that I can think of

poor management, run as second fiddle from Sydney. Office staff use platitudes on tcs to get them to go away, so the status quo of inactivity can continue.
Pros

Cons
old and worn working utes

Some days are busy, others not. Always on your toes and constantly looking for traffic. Can get quite dangerous at times. Always looking over your shoulder for dangers/hazards. Can get quite stressful if your team partner is not on the ball or is a bit slack.
Pros
outside work
Cons
Long Days

Top workplace to work at, meaning i've learned a lot from this Compan. The management should improve the office side not the road. The workplace culture is good everyone helps one another. The hardest part of the job is dealing with clients that don't understand road rules and think they make they're own rules.
Pros
everyone's friendly
Cons
long hours

They're a Casual Based Industry, meaning you are not guaranteed work, and if you reject work even if it's been given advance notice, you won't work again.
Pros
Money
Cons
Everything.
