Set up to fail
Cook (Former Employee) –  Adelaide Metro SA21 July 2019
Management was terrible and did not support staff. Their slogan of We Care is laughable. The quality of food was terrible. Huge workload and minimal time to do it. Kitchen manager was lazy and palmed iff her work on to me, when she actually turned up for work.
Pros
None
Cons
Long hours, bullying, miss out on family functions because you get told that you aren't doing anything important

Some sites are equipped with good recreation rooms and some have none - working staff generally quite positive - depends on what site you are at
casual fifo utility (Former Employee) –  Perth WA30 June 2018
Working as a casual utility fifo in WA was good,as got to go to many different places - the staff you work with are all pretty good,and friendly and generally want to work as a team - but management is very under qualified and equiped with knowledge on how to deal with serious issues when it comes to staff harrassement safety and most daily staff handling duties.Also head management were not also good in dealing with serious staff issues.
Pros
Good atmosphere to work in - generally
Cons
management lacks people handling skills

Long time away in underdesirable conditions
Food & Beverage Supervisor (Former Employee) –  Gladstone, QLD Australia11 July 2016
Cater Care Group was a management company maintaining a remote accommodation facility for +1000 guests. As Food & Beverage manager there was always a variety of issues arising from daily operations that would be seemingly easy to resolve.

However, the bureaucracy of the organisation became fickle and ultimately led to unproductive and inefficient organisation and operational structure.
Pros
Accommodation and meals paid for
Cons
Long hours, poor executive management

A good place to work if you want to be under paid worked like a dog due to understaffing and basicly like to be used and abused
Utility Worker (Former Employee) –  Western Australia27 April 2016
The company is so busy with their heads up there butt trying to compete with big companies like sodexo they don't stop to think that if they did what they preached and looked after there staff instead of forcing unrealistic work conditions on people often forcing you into the situation of either jobs aren't complete which can be a bit of issue when it's peoples food or rooms to sleep in or you do unpaid overtime as the company would rather wrestle a crocodile then actually look after you.
Coming out for the money? Think again with the removal of award rates coming up you could make more money at McDonald's and at least get treated like more then a number. If your not salaried you get the nice "do the same job same quality but for less money" speech and then they try and make you feel like there doing you a favour because you still have a job.
End of story use them.to jump ship to something better just prepare for the no lube attack first
Pros
Experience in fifo, can meet some fun crew
Cons
Unrealistic workload to staffing, pay, managment. Most camps are average to ghetto, fly out in your own time for free, bad traing, refusal to uptrain unless there back is to the wall, treat there dog better then you, holiday pay is a joke, check your pay/hours they will try to shaft you.

House keeping (Former Employee) –  south hamilton12 February 2015
A typical day at work was the usual 40degrees+ in the Pilbara working long 12 hour shifts, 14-21 days straight. Everyday always revolved around time management, working fast, in a team but also looking after yourself and one another as the heat and long days becomes extremely tiring. We often would get new staff come and go very regularly so training on a daily basis almost become a normal day at work. Every lunch break at work all co-workers would sit together and socialize and most nights included catching up and bonding with managers and supervisors. This was always what most people including myself looked forward to everyday. (fairly different from the usual job). Working away your co-workers are not just people you work with, the whole team becomes extremely close and is basically your second family.
