Average place to work,I have been at at a lot better.quite a few bett

Downer management at the time I was there approximately 7 yebetter9ars was a boys club very insular and nepotism was rife. Purcasing preferences within this company were given to suppliers who were giving the most benefits to those providing the orders, thus providing a lucrative overall package to those in the club. Not a good place to work if you are trusting and basically honest.


Fellow workers are frendly.


Management not consultative. Unrealistic targets.

Downer promotes a standard that employees take pride in their work

Management promotes a safety orientated work place with a high standard of employee participation, and the willingness of employees to show and teach others to work safely and efficiently. The typical work day is to complete the work according to job priority.

A good workplace, friendly people

I have been there for several years and it has its ups and downs but at the end of the day it was good. Co- workers was mostly all helpful. The atmopshere was okay.

It was a quick learning curve on the maintenance area and always productive.

There a projects that where to be beneficial to improve the customer service that was later put on hold indefinitely due to the redundancies which will impact later on the customer.

I would have stayed with Downer if work was available

The day would begin with our pre start meeting and then get our tasks for the day. I learnt from skilled Supervisors who did not hesitate to assist. Management were motivated in job completion but NOT at the expense of safety for there employees. Thoroughly enjoyed working with my workmates whom I am still in contact with after 9 years. Hardest part of the job would have to be leaving Downer as no work was on offer at the time of project completion. Forming friendships.


Good mates
