no job title (Former Employee) –  Geelong, Victoria29 January 2019
Take the job and make your own assessment of the work culture. You won't believe what you've got yourself into. No wonder they have to be bailed by another company.

Terrible culture,
Marketing (Former Employee) –  Geelong VIC28 November 2017
This company has a toxic culture. People have been there 30+ yrs & are stuck, those who speak out are shuffled out the back door. Lacks structure & processes, the HR Dept will do nothing to help and will in fact make matters worse. Pay is appalling. Opportunity for training or advancement non-existent unless they want you moved, Old-fashioned, out of touch, sexist and stifling.
Pros
Nice people
Cons
Toxic culture

A typical day is on the go the whole time. Heavy lifting with a small group of workers in the department. The hardest part of the job is the wear and tear on the body daily.
Pros
day shift hours suit

Can be very tiring on the body.
