Industrial Blaster/Painter - JKC Project (Current Employee) – Darwin NT – 8 July 2018
I enjoyed working with the Civmec team. Managers and supervisors were good and fair. Management were understanding and supporting of all the crew. It was unfortunate the contract ended as I really enjoyed working for Civmec.

Even if you are desperate steer well clear of this company, covering up safety issues to having shoddy work practises is all in a day's work for them. Supervisors scream at you if you put the tools down for even a second, no talking and don't get me started on the manager who intimidates and threatens his staff because of not working on a weekend.
Would not be surprised if they have a death real soon numerous injuries not reported or if so covered up.
Hardest part of the job doing 6 sometimes 7 days a week and being burnt out.
Long hours, supervisors scream in your face, threatening manager
Labourer (Former Employee) – Grafton Gaol – 11 March 2018
Safety was an absolute joke. Management pushing to get the job done without the right gear for the job. They deserve to be shutdown on the job i was on. Basic safety protocols not adhered to or non existent. Unprofessional and embaressing to be part of it. Office clowns with no idea telling the boys how to do their jobs. Engineer given too much power with bad attitude and socially inept. Was above everyone. Everything was about budget budget budget. Wouldnt even supply tea or coffee for the workers !!! Never again.

Graduate Mechanical Engineer (Current Employee) – Henderson WA – 8 November 2017
no self development, poor management skills, extreme long working hours, salary is below average market rate. Every project has tight budget, push the guys on floor too hard. Working environment is also a disaster
Fluxcore/Stainless steel Welder (Former Employee) – Henderson WA – 18 June 2017
I really liked the bosses, i know some may seem they are tuff on people at first, but that's how to motivate people! And get the job done. we worked to a high quality standard, i worked for them 4 or 5 times. i would love to go back
good welding machines, well maintained
long hrs and want you to work sat/ sundays, but were ok with just the sats
could improve but overall not to bad of a place to work
Boilermaker (Former Employee) – Tomago NSW – 23 May 2017
not a bad place to work will be better once they have there facility up and running properly. only bad thing was the drawings not the best to understand and they had lots of measurement and welding details missing
Scaffolder (Former Employee) – Port Hedland WA – 3 May 2017
An unusual collection of people,lots of 457 visa holders,who by the way were great lads trying to earn a buck. Management seemed a bit fractured and struggled with the client. We made it fun and caught a few fish plus had a good time at the camp.
Good working environment & good compensation package
Quantity Surveyor (Former Employee) – Henderson WA – 6 March 2017
Civmec has great people to work with and a good working environment. Most of the staff are friendly and motivated to work with and has a lot of experienced to share. Coping with the amount of work that the company took on, the time frame & deadlines are some of the challenge that you must get over the line.
Pipe Fitter / Special Class Welder (Former Employee) – Perth WA – 15 January 2017
you get treated as a dog no body says good morning the,management wont even acknowledge you, there is no thanks for the effort you put in or over time done, the work is good it is very exciting and precise but i resigned on my own accord because i refuse to work in a place like that.
Boilermaker (Former Employee) – Henderson WA – 29 October 2016
