Great culture, helpful staff

Indeed Featured review

The most useful review selected by Indeed
Although the work was fulfilling, not enough trust placed in workers to be able to commence Bank rec at start of shift. Accountants had to provide statements to work from so they generally were delayed. Camaraderie within the Finance department was excellent.

Easy Work Enviroment

In my position at Ampcontrol, my role is to support the two Senior Business Support team with tasks assigned and to be completed within the time frame to help meet the needs of the business. This has motivated me to study in the new year as t further my qualifications.

Productive, interactive and friendly work environment.

I completed 1 week of work experience during year 10 at Amp Control, learning about work procedures along with projects for the mining industry. I helped with wiring and other small actions. My overall experience was insightful and the crew and staff were friendly and considerate.

terrible abusive manipulative brutal.

I applied for this job by accident, If I had known who it was I would never have applied. Never work in a place where there is more than one psychopath.

Pros

clean work

Cons

too much criminal activity and bullying very dangerous work mates.

Good place to work enjoyed my time there friendly employees.

A typical day for me at Ampcontrol Pty Ltd, I would find out what part of the factory I would be working in as I moved between Electronics, Production Line & Warehouse. I learned a lot of different types of jobs my co-workers were friendly, management were understanding in any situation that arose. The hardest part of the job was learning all the different jobs but the most enjoyable part of the job was learning different skills.

Pros

38 Hour Week

Cons

Low wages

Productive Environment with chances to learn and share knowledge

The Utility group was new and creative, I enjoyed setting up Project Management systems and sharing the knowledge with every one. Hardest part of the job was to instill the project type work culture in the team which was fairly new and in experienced. Most enjoyable part was achieving the project results even with team not fully trained to do the job.

The Leading OEM in electrical gear for coal mining!

You better be ready to hunt in all sorts of places for electrical faults and switching issues. The challenges are certainly there but so are the rewards and friendship ties.

Pros

You get to see many interresting places & meet smart people!

Cons

Xmas is another 12 months away.

Hard working

i was there for 3 hours making speakers, i was shown exactly how to make them. when i made a mistake i was shown how to fix it. The hardest part was the repetition but soon after became the most enjoyable part of the job. Due to being able to complete the task quicker therefor making me happier and things more efficient.

My Opinion

Ampcontrol was a great company to work for with many friendly people. My day was always different from soldering and doing final assembly to doing contractor inductions and Chairing the WHSE committee. I found it easy to get out of bed to go to a great job. I learnt heaps about making deadlines and being part of a great team. I also learnt store duties too.
