great for some extra cash and work xp on the side.
Polling Assistant, AEC (Former Employee) – Carrum Downs VIC – 8 October 2018
you really would only work for 1 day but even that you would need to start quite early, say around 6am; you would need to come in and get the whole place all set-up and ready for the day. you would finish whenever the counting finishes, which for me was like at 3am in the morning, the next day.
just a disclaimer that this was all my exp. some people who worked in the other places said that they all finished everything around 10pm, the same day. but for me, the 'supervisors' hired for the job were extremely inefficient because they kept on miscounting and recounting all the voting forms over & over.
- wear really comfortable shoes (runners are preferred, no one really cares)
- dress code is really pretty much very casual-formal.
- pack a lot of food just in case you'll have to stay in really late.
- bring your own cup
extra cash and work exp
really long hours but that depends on how productive the supervisors are.
