I worked at the Grafton correctional centre for around 6 months. The safety on the job was appalling, a lot of incidents went unreported. The management was just push push push and more worried about hitting targets and new records every week than safety of the guys out on the floor. Management were continually in breach of contract, trying to change the goal posts all the time. The redundancy pay outs, were almost impossible to receive as it was written into the contract so as to be paid out at the descretion of Civmec HR. Getting any tools or materials was impossible due to the ridiculous budget that they had set. As Civmec put a roof over the precast yard that was on site on the jail grounds, Civmec employees were not entitled to all of the benefits of the rest of the site, ie no rdo’s, no site allowance. I have black listed Civmec as a company I would work for in the future.
Some good guys on site
Long hours, pushed to the limit and know nothing leading hands and supervision
