Employed through work Pac to Golding contractors for the duration of the contract
Golding made to feel like an integral part of the crew but as normal being employed by Labour Hire leaves one feeling empty

A typical day at work was to start of with a safety prestart and a job plan. From there we got on with the job and communicated positively with each other and all went home safe. A great work environment.

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.
Pros
BBQ Lunches, Birthday cakes

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.
Pros
Very family friendly, willing to train people for advancement or career change.
Cons
Downturn in the economy made it unsettling waiting to see if redundancies would need to be made, so job security became questionable.
