Great working with lots of people but poor site management
Console Operator (Former Employee) – Long Jetty – 17 April 2019
Only lasted just under month. Rushed training then you are by yourself after 22 hrs , then expected to know everything and be perfect at it. Good with flexibility on work if on good side of supervisor. Our supervisor seemed to have a vendetta and each shift found something to warn me on. Even when you dot the i and cross the T it wasn’t good enough. Worst time of my life. Very disappointing as was looking forward getting back to work and being part of such a large organisation. Sure not all locations like this.
Working with different people and on your own
Supervisor had no people skills and does not encourage workers
Customer Service Assistant (Former Employee) – Nuriootpa SA – 22 June 2019
When I first started working for caltex, I felt happy to work there. The pay was fine, the hours weren't too strenuous and the work level was tolerable.
Over time, the company started cutting hours, while expecting more to be done. I was working alone 90% of the time, and would feel overwhelmed with stress as I was doing jobs that that were initially meant to be split between two people.
My manager did the best they could to overcome these issues, but in the end it was the people above us who made working at caltex difficult.
Overall I have heard that since I left the company it has gotten better, so I believe my opinion may be outdated.
