GrianCorp is going through major structural and demerger, very stressful to work.
Politics and lobbying culture

No clear roadmap and top management lacking the business knowledge. Experience people have left the company in the last five to six years

Good workmates

I haven't worked for the grain industry for 41 years. I believe they have made a whole bunch of changes since then. I was a silo operator then. Management thought they didn't need workers kept on side, so they give everybody notice then re-employed them on a employ when they needed staff. I didn't need that so I looked for work elsewhere. Then I was employed by Chinchilla Health as a Wardsperson for 16 years. You can make your own interpretation of this. I kind of think that if you show no care for your worker then don't expect your worker to show any respect for you.

Management work ethics and manners to lower position workers are poor. They show more loyalty to their backpacker work force than Australian work force maybe because they help cover up their unsafe work practices.

Not bad pay and work life balance.
Lack of career progression.

Inward looking, not encouraging of ideas.

Reactionary management rather than being proactive to the market

Graincorp is in the middle of its 3rd restructure - during its 2nd they hired probably 40 people and then sacked most of them. Stay away until the dust settles!
HR is also shocking from start the finish, they take too long to hire, they get applicants mixed up - I was offered 76K then they called me back as if they never spoke to me before telling me the salary was 83K - HR dont want you to come near them either.

If they call you into a meeting its because you are being made redundant.
Pros
Great location (head office)
Cons
No clear destination

Work was usually spent sampling trucks filled with Grain and classifying them for quality. I learned how to deal with some difficult growers and drivers, who were always after the best results. I had management back up as I worked and if there were any problems it was usually sorted. the work was always casual, and some co-workers were very casual and made some tasks difficult, but in general the work was fairly simple and if you followed the company policies it was usually good work.

Graincoorp is on a great safety journey, the culture being imbedded in the company is awesome.

There needs to be more attention paid to the aging infrastructure of some of the older grain handling facilities.
Pros
Work life balance
Cons
Aging infrastructure

I was a summer casual over harvest. It was a great way to make bit of money quickly. It was hard work with long hours but overall I enjoyed the experience, especially because it was my first real job out of high school. Also, it was easy to transition from training to work.
Pros
Great pay.
Cons
Long hours.
