Alright place to work.

Indeed Featured review

The most useful review selected by Indeed
Labouring is labouring, the pay could be a bit better. The Boss was easy going & great to work with. If you haven’t done any labouring it is hard work but if you’re used to it you’ll have no trouble.

Pros

Get fit

Cons

Get sunburnt

Bored

It is a boring repetitive job.Great people to work with.Pay rate is no good.It is a family friendly business because it is a family run business.

Franchisors and Jim don’t care

The system can work well but in my experience (Victoria) the franchisor was only in it for himself, he was a compulsive liar and the higher ups all the way to the top were not much better when it came to asking for help. You can do just as well on your own without paying franchise fees, although some form of training would help.

Pros

Brand name

Cons

No one cares or helps as long as they get paid

Dont trust jim

Rude CEO who tries to control people with threats. Nobody within the company, including your own franchisor, will challenge him even when they disagree, for fear of threats to themselves

Pros

None

Cons

A great outdoor job

A typical day at work was that we would start at 7:30am every weekday and finish around 5pm. i learned how to mow a lawn fast and easy and how to clean up after and how to clean a garden bed up. Management was great and the hardest part was not slowing down when tired to finish off the day. But the most enjoyable part was that i stayed physically fit and was on a decent wage.

Pros

Stayed fit

Cons

Long days and the heat

Pros

Client contact

Cons
