Unfortunately they did not recognize certain parts of the business for further career movement.

I recognized a need for updating policy and procedures in the following areas

• Administration procedures for all legal matters, contracts, new staff/customers and general office management

• HR administration and travel requirements for Head Office Executive Management

• Ongoing PowerPoint presentation and training setup for all Account Managers on Sales Force integration from SAP

• National Sales Conference, Induction and Monthly Meetings Co-ordination and bookings

• Overseeing of Administration/Reception personnel and SharePoint/Intranet additions

• Accounts receivable/payable/claims - month end reporting – SAP and BW

• Internal analysis of all customers and integration with Account Managers and Executives on Sales Force program

• Credit reporting analysis from SAP, Sales Force and Dunn & Bradstreet

• Extensive relationship building with all customers – problem solving

• Responsible for new export customers – set up and maintain customer orders

My experience working at James Hardie was helpful to me, as I am not English speaker native, I learnt from them the correct way to understand and speak. Also, they have strong policy and procedures to respect and work together as a family to reach the organization' objectives in different projects.

Company is great, the job is good, salary is excellent.
But, sometimes I didn’t know if my manager was in charge or the guy that works there for 15 years doing the same thing.

That’s why I left, the only real reason.

Hardie is a unique place with some very talented individuals across the whole organisation.

Senior management has consistently funded technical innovation in order to develop competitive advantage, which is one reason that the company has been so successful.


The company is great place for those who thrive on challenge, pressure and hard work - it is definitely not a place for those who want a quiet life!!
Pros
Great opportunities for personal development, interesting and challenging work, the opportunity to work with very talented co-workers
Cons
High frequency of senior management review

I thoroughly enjoyed working for this company.

I was given the opportunity to learn many different skills and was afforded time to hone my skills in relief positions and was financially rewarded for my performance.


Co-workers were numerous and represented many cultures and nationalities. Everyone friendly and easily accessible, even at management level.

I did shift work, with rotating rosters.
I drove fork lift, autoclave operating.

Good knowledge of cement sheeting and production.

Management were professional and treated me with high respect.

Co workers were team players, and easy to get along with.

The hardest part was rotating shifts with 3 young children.

I most enjoyed, atmosphere and conditions.
Pros
Various duties, daily. Shiwork.
Cons
Unfortunate closure of business., and company.
