Terrible working there, horrible managers, gossip is rampant. Slow to fix potentially dangerous hazards. Horrible pay for what your are exposed to and what you are expected to do.

All of it

Management has really unrealistic expectations of what people can achieve in a shift, especially during day shift when it's very busy. Most people won't be able to hit production targets, even those who've been there for years.

The lab isn't very well ventilated, fume extractors are always blocked and quite a few people have complained about getting headaches and sore throats while working in there. As far as I know, nothing has been done to change this.


People on the shifts are pretty chill and helpful, takes a bit out of the sting of having to work there.

Everyone got along well and helped each other out.

Sadly due to a down turn in business I was made redundant, but if I was offer a position back there I would jump in a heart beat.

Exploitation and underpayment is rampant. HR and upper management do not act quickly enough, respond or defend you in a timely. Always the case that it will be far too late.

The people they hire are their buddies and mates, who are not qualified for the job. If you are the one that is qualified, it is assured that your talent will be used without compensation : ie free training for them and nothing in return for you.


Noisy and polluted, there is little care towards the working environment here.The mood here is negative. Stay away.
Pros
You have a regular salary
Cons
Everything you don't want in a company, people or culture

Really good place to work. Good tasks, good team and I wish I could have stayed there longer.
I enjoyed a lot working for intertek and I got responsibility straight away. I felt like people heard me when I had suggestions and this is such a quality for a workplace.

Typical day at work would start with emails on average 60-100 per day, answer any queries, sort out problems, data input, payruns, reconcile statements.

I learned everything to do with account payable how to process from beginning to end.


Data entry

Purchase orders

Payments runruns


Everyone in management and co workers worked well together we were a good team.


The hardest part of the job was making sure our large volume of work was delivered on time and upto date for month end.


Everything in my role was enjoyable intertek was a very pleasent place to work.
Pros
Room to further career
Cons
Long hours

Too focused on profit and not enough on adequate staff training or safety. Set unreachable expectations for workers that are impossible given the work SOPs; must shortcut procedures in order to reach the companies desired production numbers.

I have worked with Intertek for almost 3 years and won't be looking elsewhere for quite sometime. I was disappointed after reading the reviews from people in the US as Intertek Australia is a very beneficial place to work.
They are very lenient with personal commitments and don't monitor you with a fine toothed comb to make sure you are meeting requirements. They have trust in their employees and review performance regularly to ensure everyone is happy.

If there are faults in employees, they do everything possible to ensure you are supported in a way forward.

Colleagues and management have great personalities and are very supportive and always laughing and joking around however everyone takes their positions seriously and if you don't, then Intertek is not the company for you.
Pros
Almost everything
Cons
Large company so individuals don't get the spotlight as often as many people like, but dont work for a large company if this is what you want

Oriented mainly around chemical and fuel testing. A large variety of testing and instrumentation. Management is largely near sighted and inadequate. Co-workers are the best part of the job. The job is not particularly difficult though staff can be required to work odd hours and are not paid penalty rates.
