Management are out of touch with what happens on the shop floor.
The purple circle exists and if your not in the circle, your overtime suffers and your ability to do your job safely suffers. Some long time employees run the shop in an unsafe manner. No accountability for anyone who damages something. Management just didn’t care about the day to day mental well being of their staff.

Long Term Career with exciting future
Family orientated culture where everyone looks out for eachother. I work with a team that is quick to support and help me whenever I ask for it and I appreciate that. I have a long term career here and can grow and develop myself with my managers support.

Toxic workplace
Do not work here! The whole company is a joke where they do not care for there employers. Management is poor and is full of Narcissistic people. Hated every single day, was put down everyday and made to feel stupid. Can not ask any questions and do not receive and training. Would rather flip burgers at McDonald’s then work another day at Hitachi.

Great company to work for - despite the Sydney management never ending change-over
Customers service rep job was amazing. Company car, phone laptop and credit card all included. Fair commission structure with uncapped potential, would go back here to work.
Only downfall at the Sydney branch is the continual change of management.. the only reason I moved on.

Although, the senior team at the head office is brilliant especially the bus’s ones development manager at the time.

Good lunch room.
Good lunch sitting room with TV but the customer service manager at the time had no clues.
micro-management, constantly watching and wanting to see and hear what people are saying.

Former Administration Assistant- Hitachi Wacol, Qld
I lasted 3 months at HCMA Wacol as an Administration Assistant from June 2019.
The Administration Manager is sarcastic, spiteful, and without a doubt, a superiority complex. Her offsider possesses the same attributes. Many a time, my Manager left me questioning my own intelligence.

I quit my position with no job to go to. I was thoroughly mentally destroyed! I urge anyone considering an Administration Assistant role at Hitachi Wacol to think twice!

Politics runs rife
Performance takes a categorical backseat to politics in this company. No room for innovation from the frontline, no emphasis placed upon determining root causes to recurring problems, a pattern of finger-pointing being the norm, & everything entirely task-focussed.

Largest construction equipment supplier
The best company I have worked for, lots of training and skill advancement with John Deere University and Hitachi Training centre in Japan

Overseas travel and different work locations


Good personal development training


After a number of years I was working away 40 weeks a year at different mining and construction sights and overseas locations such as New Zealand some 10 trips


Most of the mining training was based on 12 hour day- seven day week, - salary no overtime, I decided that I wanted to work in Sydney as I have 6 grand kids and I wanted to spend more time with them while they were young.
Pros
Great company to work for
Cons
none
