Bad time for Shipbuilding

Given the severe lack of ships ordered by the Australian Government over the last decade its a very bad time for for shipbuilding in Australia. With the completion of the work in the yard the company is having to ramp down and announce a lot of redundancies. The work was initially very interesting and diverse with lots of great opportunities to travel around the country. However as the work has dried up so have the opportunities and interesting things to do.

Pros

Flexible hours

Cons

Dying industry

no longer employed

I have been made redundant from 27th November 2015 It was very unfortunate that there were no more work allocated to BAE Williamstown Victoria. I have been employed with BAE for over 25 years. BAE Systems is world wide and I have fully enjoyed working for a great company.

Pros

Great working Environment

Cons

Long Hours up to 64 hrs per week.

Great place to work with great people as well. Great modern facility.

BAE Systems is a great place to work I have had the great pleasure of working with a vast variety of different people and BAE Systems have provided me with the opportunity for upgrading my skills throughout my 12.5 years I've been there for thus far. My day varies each day with different managers requesting different requirements. I enjoy my position but am looking to move forward with my career.

Pros

great people to work with

Cons

not many at all. at the moment job security is paramount for me.
