Indeed Featured review

The most useful review selected by Indeed
In the department where I worked, it was always busy. We were always responding to events as they happened, so no time to be relaxed while working. When we weren't working, there was plenty of opportunity to learn new skills. The crew I worked with were a top bunch, who got along well with each other. The Managers were great, always on the ball, checking on your welfare and making sure any issues identified were handled promptly.

Pros

Good training, interesting work, good renumeration.

Very focused on time management and adherence and quick learning

Management seemed to not care as to the welfare of their staff. I was disappointed in a lot of the decisions in relation to staff management. You cannot take your holidays when you want it unless it fits within business needs and have know it to happen that they require your attendance for one day half way through your holidays

Pros

some really great people work there

Cons

time management and long days

good job easy work good equipment

good work ,good crews and good equipment . The work was interesting and meeting new people everyday in our daily work was great . very good training programs and experiences gained threw the different task and emergency situations faced daily . The hardest part of the job is the cyclone season and the working task and conditions faced but it is a great experience and good to be apart of a team helping others. the best part of the job was the different areas worked in and the experience gained working on other distribution systems

Pros

good pay and allowances

lack of over time and large project work

Management of depot warehouses for emergency response.

Ergon Energy used to be a great company to work for but in recent times it has not. The role was great in that you were autonomous and you could plan your work day to suit your customers needs but that was gradually eroded as management decided to micro manage the role.

Pros

Autonomy for a period of time

Cons

Micro management from management, lack of trust as well.

fast paced employer with great opportunities

Fun work place with easy access to management if required, company is supportive of learning and training as a person to support their needs as a growing company. The staff with in the teams are super supportive and help with training. The day to day work is varied but can get quite monotonous if a change is not available regularly. The position was only contract and located in the wrong town for me to continue in this position.

Pros

great team to work with and learn from

Cons

in the wrong town
