Boring and not challenging. I did not learn anything new except that I needed more intellectual stimulation in a job.
Management did not communicate well, staff were not happy at work.

Workplace culture was one of bullying and harassment. The men were often wrestling each other and making derogatory comments about each other.

Everyone came from a different workplace experience in the transport industry. There were no work methods, each one doing it the way they liked. This made it very hard to learn the job as the office was open and you could have five people getting upset if you didn't do things their way.

When I broached this with management and asked for clarity, she just made excuses for the staff and did nothing to help me.

I did not enjoy this job and found the office atmosphere, degrading and unprofessional.

Worst experience ever. Management does not care about their employees, only there to make profit. Claim there is room to grow but once brought up you are instantly shut down. Would probably be an OK job for casual basis, or to get started however, environment is very childish.

Very nice people to learn and work with.

Worked with some interesting and fine people in the Magazine section. Everyone knew their jobs and most were multi-skilled and hard working people. Enjoyed the breakfast or lunch bbq's and the ladies celebrating their birthdates with yummy lunches.
Pros
great co workers

I walked into work like i was walking on court to play a game of volley. Each day was different with a good possibility of minor changes to your team due to roster. These changes would make or break us sometimes but you learn to work with the hand that is dealt you. You learn to "keep it moving". Our management team as a collective had experience of 50-60years within the company. They were the most invested and dedicated to seeing how best to tackle daily challenges and meeting daily objectives the best way they knew how. I am qualified Graphic Designer. Moving to Australia I gave myself a year in this warehouse to save then move on to a graphic job. That never happened much to my fathers dismay ( a Samoan thing) lol I thoroughly enjoyed the work, the bosses, the physicality of the job. The money was great and most of all the relationships I formed with the people i worked with. The work was hard at times very physical, but that is what i loved about it. Everyday was different. Why would I leave?
As i get older balance is everything. My love for the creative world is more progressive now than its ever been because i choose to keep it in in my life without making it my life's mission. The hardest part about the job was leaving it. I was glad to stay to the end. It was a good ride and a wave that will be hard to beat. This is what i have learned. "You're only as good as your team, as strong as your weakest link". Overall some of the best learning years of my life, definitely some of the best years of my working life!
Pros
Great communication, Family oriented
Cons
Not being able to say goodbye to everyone.

fun working environment, great managers and bosses , flexability when it comes to personal or family issues. My typical day would be turning the packing machine on and getting the strapping machines on and working making sure printer is working and loaded with paper. There really is nothing hard about my job as a picker and packer with magazines .. Enjoyable part is working within a great team .
Pros
Flexability
Cons
Standing on your feet all day
