Found both sites i worked for goldings, in both coal and gold, had a mentality of pushing for numbers production and not so much the welfare of workers unless you were in the click, and some rules for some and not others, bullying was not dealt with appropriately
Roster 7 n 7
Bad culture, boys club, no equal opportunity for training
Golding is a civil engineering construction company that builds things like roads, bridges, railway lines, mining tailings dams etc. The work there was stimulating and varied but job security was non-existent.
Stimulating work, great people
No job security
I started work for the company as a Concretor and from the short stay with them we were building a new coal terminal in the Gladstone region and I enjoyed it a lot
Help us improve!
Is Indeed your favorite place to learn about companies?
this was a labor hired job therefore the pay rate was soooo much lower than what you usually get. Its disappointing after so many years working for the client to have to start to go thru labour hire companies to get a job - but i cannot see it changing in the future.

Pre-Starts, Jhas, Take 5's Reclaiming Swamp land with Scrapers and Dozers for Wicet Coal Terminal... Excellent Leadership and work crew.. Tough Muddy Conditions thru Mangrooves... 10Hr Days 6 days a week....
Very Productive, 10Hr days, Great work team and management.. Pre-starts, Jhas, Smartstart before each Shift.. Operating Srapers, Dozers, Moxys, Compactors, Excavators. Learned how to push Scrapers with Dozers...
Workload extensive but manageable and totally enjoyed working in this environment. Took redundancy package as relocating was not an option due to family commitments. I miss working for this company.
Very family friendly, willing to train people for advancement or career change.
Downturn in the economy made it unsettling waiting to see if redundancies would need to be made, so job security became questionable.
since the new management the workplace has become extremely uncomfortable to work in because everyone has different ideas and there not working together. You don't get a fair go on experience its who you know.
close to home
load and haul overburden, learnt how to drive heavy machines, the hardest part of the job was doing the same thing day in day out. most enjoyable was the camaraderie within the team
access and meals
5 day roster not 7 day day roster

I have spent a large part of my life working for the late, Cyril Golding and through out my years I have enjoyed all challenges appointed me, and look forward to my next I am very privileged to have been given the opportunity to become part of a great team, helping to build Cyril Goldings Empire. Still to date, Golding Contractors
Challenging, Variety of roles, An opportunity to work a Joint Venture with Thiess . Great Co-workers
