Great place to contribute to helping the community.

Shift work is essential, week end work is required. Yearly training essential. Lots of variety of work experience. Prisoners are easier to manage than staff. Management to not support staff effectively.

Perfect working environment

Love coming in everyday to a supportive team environment. Amazing support from everyone. Clean amenities. Convenience of a cafe, kitchen and spacious work space. No pressure from Leaders, they are just as supportive as ever gone else. Love this job.

No transparency

Job development only happens if you know someone regardless of skills, experience or knowledge. Job culture is very poor at our location. Care factor is zero. Lots of very unhappy people.

Pros

Use to be the overtime

Cons

Way too many inexperienced staff, dangerous.

Bullying Culture

Bullying culture protected by HR, Senior Management and Leadership Executives. The department brags to care about their employees and their Mental Health but the fact is if you work here you'll end up suffering with mental health issue yourself. You are not allowed to be yourself. Even your hello or good morning (which are basic professional traits) might end up offending someone.

Pros

No pros

Cons

Bullying and bad working culture

Job Culture

Culture of bullying protected by HR

The salary offered could never make up for the lack of training, nepotism and downward envy from people who have been in positions they are not qualified for too long. The turnover of staff should be seen as an indicator of performance of management, not the staff they supposedly look after (when they are not too busy at the tennis, on the boards of companies and "working from home"). If you want to sit around earning too much money to prove that you can take a two hour lunch or reduce the new recruits to tears by assigning tasks without support, this is the perfect job for you. If you want to actually do your job, up skill and work as a team, keep walking because despite policy and guidelines that say you will be doing these things you'll be too busy pulling knives out of your back (and front) to do your job. Don't expect to be rewarded for experience because that is threatening to the stuffy arrogant seasoned bullies who will use it to make you look like a know it all or segregate you until you question your abilities and don't expect your executive management to have any qualifications appropriate for the job they get paid for or have any issues dealt with by HR (have a look at how many lawyers work for HR, that'll tell you how much money they spend protecting the vile culture that is as accepted as the "casual racism" and high turnover). Apart from that, it's a beautiful place to work if you ignore the previous statements...

Pros

Three hours of lunch if you are invited.

Cons

Bullying protected, racism, ignorance and incompetent management leading to injury.

Tough working conditions

Long 12 hour shifts with only an hour lunch break, you could possibly work 8 hours before getting your lunch break. Very little room for growth and personal development. Poor work culture with lots of employees off on stress leave or with work related injuries.

Pros

penalties for working weekends

Cons

long hours poor pay and bad management
