Good

Indeed Featured review

The most useful review selected by Indeed
Wasn't there for too long but the team was good to work with and new. They took a little to get used to but were introducing tech that was not trialled before going live.

Purple circle

Major divide between white and Blue collar workers. Communication non existent You are just a number there, be ready to be sacked or redundant at anytime.

Very proffessional company

Downer are very well organised and management were the best I've encountered in my career. They have systems in place that are industry leading. The work was challenging and rewarding and however, being a FIFO contract the work/life balance was most challenging (4 weeks on and 1 week off)

Gain lots of experience as an a electrician with Downer.

I enjoyed my time working with Downer and I was lucky to get some training as well and good experience.On the big projects it can be quite strict with many supervisors and safety guys.
