Supervisor (Temporary) (Former Employee) –  Onslow,Australia26 September 2014
I worked with this company in the outbacks of Australia in a camp environment. My typical day was a variety of duties such as cleaning cabin rooms to a high standard. Setting up a laundry system and taking care of it and training in new staff. Radio control doing room checks and pre-arrivals and reporting to office for maintenance issues. Sweeping of yards in camp and keeping areas clean. Hosing down of cabins and vans. stocking of trolleys and linen room. Driving company car to pick up laundry bags and setting up of new laundry areas. Doing final cleans on new building during construction and setting up new rooms. I worked with a group of people of which also lived on camp so we all became very close as we had to live and work with each other for months.It was a life changing experience I will never forget.
Pros
Free Accommodation and Meals
Cons
Long hours -no shops or things to do

Housekeeper (Current Employee) –  Onslow, WA10 April 2014
Starting early in the morning, doing housekeeping work in the different types of accomodation in the Park, normally finishing by 4-5 pm. After work we play table tennis with some workmates, we enjoy the swimming pool or we work out at the gym.
The weather has been the most difficult aspect of being here.

The most enjoyable part of the work is to meet people from different parts of the globe and share our lives experiences
Pros
Accommodation and all meals are included
Cons
Weather is to hot and humit sometimes
