Friendly, fun, and helpful atmosphere with considerate staff!
There is a good workplace culture at Camp Australia. The culture is like helping you improve, and it is done in a very friendly and supportive way. The best part is you get all the support in a fun place. You work, you learn, you make money, and you enjoy your time working.Highly recommended!

Set up to fail! Not a job for people who genuinely care.
Very unprofessional. Feel as I was set up to fail. I was never introduced to the children or even shown where things were and how to do things and the structure of the sessions. It’s for “just a job” but if you are someone that cares about the kids in your care and the service you provide as I do then this is soul destroying and not worth your mental health and I am dreading work and in a foul mood when I finish. I have worked in kindergartens and special needs school but here I felt useless. Very bad experience, never again!

Exploitative Culture
The culture is very exploitative and toxic. Support from upper management is non-existent. They guilt casual employees into being the backbone of each service, refuse to offer permanent contracts regardless of length or quality of employment, refuse to give training "because we're so shortstaffed", and then throw them under the bus when government audits happen. You will see at least 2 undertrained and overworked staff at each service - only 2 because due to the latest restructuring, the labour budget has been reduced dramatically which has resulted in overstaff and Individual Support educators being scrapped. They use government ratios to the absolute bare minimum at the detriment to both the children and the staff. They cheap out on equipment so that the Executives can have more profit. They change your shifts suddenly and with little to no notice, then blame other staff members for booking time off or getting sick (especially COVID). They double book casuals and blame the casuals for staffing mistakes. They refuse to give anybody under the Coordinator position a permanent employment contract, despite it being better for the staff, children and their families. Their culture is one of "good luck getting your mandatory break. You need to stay back and finish paperwork/cleaning/etc. and we refuse to pay you for this." When you complain about this to management, they listen to you, nod their head empathetically, and then take you off the roster in retaliation, despite chronic understaffing. The turnover everywhere is incredibly high because when they get someone who cares enough about the children's wellbeing and development, they push you to breaking point. Then they discard you and get somebody else.
