Productive work place always on the go

Indeed Featured review

The most useful review selected by Indeed
Overall time frame most time all over the place , Working long hours but rates was good. Just feel like it was not for me. It was new to me but did not have any trouble learning the work and the requirements. IT was just within the individuals that I worked with had no team player in them which made it hard to complete the task on your own.

Not worth it. Unappreciated and mistreated.

I've been working for Buildsafe for a number of months now and I would say this is probably one of the worst jobs I've had. There is no communication between management and staff and office. You have to join the clicks to fit in and get anywhere within buildsafe otherwise they push you out and segregate you from others. Their expections verse what the give is absolutely appalling and I would highly recommend to avoid working for this company.

Pros

I'd like to write some but there aren't any.

Cons

Read above too many to write.

Management are terrible

The management are terrible, there is barley any training, work life balance is next to none, no transperency on pay, only good thing is the boys you work with

Pros

The field staff

Cons

Poor management, No communication, no transparency on how pay works.

Pathetic

If your not islander don’t bother and if you have a life outside of work also don’t bother you are treated as a slave and have the highest expectations put on you

Go go go

Once you become an installer the earning potential is very decent for what I expected and the type of experience you need. Given that they train you in their particular trademarked systems - once that opportunity arises and you can get to lead a truck you’ll earn $100k But they work you and get their pound of flesh, so to speak. A bit too much focus on working quickly. Saw horrific injury

Branch manager and racist deadlines

If your not Tongan don’t bother applying, pays good but 12hr days , casual but full time hrs. Back breaking work if you think this is a secure job don’t all it takes is someone to say your no good or whatever and your gone

Pros

Long hrs

Cons

A lot of sooking

Stay away if you value your career

Poor and incompetent senior management, illegal practices, unsafe practices, bullying and harassment from senior management, the worst culture, very depressing environment, constant revolving door of people coming and going (worst retention rate), no training or development, poor pay rates, no pay reviews, no support or mentoring. Stay away from this organisation at all costs if you value your career and future.

Disapointing

The pay was good but if you didnt fit in with the other workers you will quickly be made to feel like an outsider and eventually get the sack and if you injure yourself at work they tend to think your making it up and dont offer any support and will be quick to sack you rather than give you time on light duties to recover no overtime rates often 12 hour shifts expected

Try fit in

It was a good atmosphere to work in but if you didn't fit in with the other co workers they fire you, to me it seemed like being mates with everyone was more important than getting work done

Pros

Hour rate

Cons

Shaft you if you don't fit in

Tiny, stuffy, hot office. Tight knit workers

My only training consisted of a staff member throwing 3 Product Disclosure Statements (thick) I was given 1/2hr in which to absorb the wide & varied guidelines etc then straight onto the phones. I had 10 min training which was on the system only so no fellow staff members to ask questions.

Pros

Close to home

Cons

I felt alienated

Very productive and friendly staff

Though I didn't work at Buildsafe for very long, I learnt many new skills. The Staff are so kind and you can make a new mate after only a couple of words with one another. The boss is awesome and easy to work with as long as you are dedicated to doing what you are supposed to be doing.

Pros

Barbecues
