Crane Diver/Rigger at Wicet coal terminal (Former Employee) – Gladstone QLD – 1 February 2016
A typical day at work is pre-start, told safety alerts, work task and work groups. Go look at task see what hazard and equipment need for task. Do JSA and Take 5 to identify hazards to pot controls in place before starting work. Get all tools and equipment and permits if needed for start task. Do the task when finished pot all tools and equipment away and rubbish in correct bins. What i learned that go planing and communication helps with good productivity. Could talk to management if you had any ideas. Co-workers would all help each other to get the task done. The hardest part was the sandflies. The most enjoyable part the job see what we built and making new friends.
Working for John Holland is a mixed bag, there are some very good upper management people and some not so good. They expect a lot of time to be spent working without getting that work life balance right. Some of the middle management could be more adaptable to change and not use the heavy hand tactics which I have witnessed. Overall 75% of the people are good to work with and take pride in what they do.
Mostly good people to work with.
Lack of support from corperate, Some people within the organization feel that it is acceptable to demoralize others, (Field to corperate)

Good company while they are prosperous. There is a good work life balance and a friendly place to work within a team. Management reasonable and understanding. Enjoyable part of the job is seeing a project through and seeing your design come to fruition. Sadly, permanent or contract, there is no loyalty in business. The HR redeployment team do not offer a great deal of support when finding another position in the company. A common theme here is redundancy.
