Reviews speak volumes
Well it is all well in good for an employee to leave a business and then begin to bad mouth it online or to other people, my initial experience working at calco trusses and timber, at least in the First 8 to 12 month was filled with opportunities to learn under a manager who truly knew what he was talking about and had the best interests for not only the company but the employees. Subsequently to that, upon hiring a new manager the morale around the workplace and specifically within the office began to plummet. Now well I cannot say this on behalf of anyone else as that would be defamation of character I can say this from my perspective that I felt constantly underappreciated, overlooked and above all else underpaid especially given the role that I was employed in. All of this being said the family that owns the business are fantastic and they know about the product that they sell and do their best to provide the best service to their customers, the general manager on the other hand only knows numbers and only cares about the bottom line (Yes this can be a positive attribute in a general manager, but that must be combined with interpersonal skills). If you are content with a wage of $21.95/hour before taxes(I doubt it has increased) and being constantly micro managed by an individual who knows nothing about the product that he is speaking about then by all means apply for a job in the office at Calco.THAY BEING SAID IT CAN BE A FANTASTIC OPPORTUNITY AS A JUMPING OFF POINT IF YOU DO WHAT YOU NEED TO.

Horrible place to work
As an employee I find all the negative post to be true. The safety standards are terrible management practices are abominable. They miss lead staff. They bully staff into signing paperwork that is not in the employees best interests. Of course they always refute these claims stating that the staff were or are disgruntled when in actual fact they are just a terrible company to work for

Excellent modern manufacturing facility
Fantastic family business to work for. Company is continuously improving the manufacturing facility, with new quality machines being purchased every year. Safety of staff is priority number one for the company. Great group of employees and the management team are awesome!

Terrible Company
Terrible company to work for, Employees are treated like rubbish, Management are absolutely Terrible, Very hight turn over of staff which Indicates what its like to work in a place were no respect is given. Unfortunately Management thinks that everyone is replaceable, OH&S doesn't exist, Terrible pay rates. Yard is dangerous half unpaved with forklifts carry dangerous loads.
