Good workplace ,it's just the people above is not threatening the workers well.

Indeed Featured review

The most useful review selected by Indeed
I suggest to all the people from the management ( supervisor's) who handle the shutdown to threat the workers fair, no discrimination. Be professional not just because they are on the good position, that's the reason why some jumping on other companies.

Pros

Free PPE

Cons

Flexible shutdowns routine

Cons

Supervision sometimes needs a dressing down

They need to review salaries at least once in a year

I don’t understand criteria they use to promote workers say to supervisor level. When people stay at Linkforce it doesn’t mean they have no where to go but they just need to settle one place so treat them fairly and properly. Im well experienced fitter but im still paid at new starter level.

The hardest part of the job.

Making sure you know your job description well and that you understand your responsibilities including your duty of care. Management(Client & Linkforce) aren't as clued in when you first get to site so vigilance and patience are great attributes.

Child Supervisors with no real world industry experience .

Not a company that values loyalty or respect they run on bullying fear tactics and strive to keep the work force on edge . They mould new perspective supervisors to treat everyone with disdain and groom those who like to rat and snitch on everyone else. Safety is not a concern and all injuries will tried to be covered up before the client is aware, under reporting is rife.

Good entry level mining job

Entry level only There are better mining jobs out there but you can get your foot in the door with these guys. Most supervisors ok but always under pressure and working conditions are harsh Best thing is you can choose your site and no pressure to work more shutdowns than you want

Productive but not happy with the schedule

Satisfied with the company except that not secure about the schedule of work. Most of the time, the schedule is changing so have to really budget the salary.

Pros

everything free

Cons

schedule not fixed
Was this review helpful?

no respect given

Travel in your own time between village and site, sometimes forced to work through lunch or wait til 430, no toilets provided or vehicle to get to one, one crib room for dozens of people so people standing when you do get a break, organization of flights and transfers between shuts a shambles but they will harrass you hard if you leave crib room without safety glasses on even when its not a site rule. The shutdown managers never even introduced themselves.

Pros

makes you appreciate other companies

Cons

mdny workers think this treatment is acceptable even normal
Was this review helpful?

Productive

Linkforce has been a good home for me as a professional boilermaker where I have been exposed to a culture of hard work and team work.With linkforce we have scored goals in terms of service delivery.The only down side is there are few opportunities for permanent work or family oriented roster.

Pros

Enough work

Cons

Temporary

Worse company ever worked for

Treated like a child, terrible pay for tradie, wear PPE to and from work looking like a filthy worker at the airport. Transported around the Pilbara in a coach from one shudown to the next, sleeping in a chair for a 10 hour break on the way to the next shut. Hot bed or two up in a donger... Centre Link you can keep it.

Pros

Free sight seeing tour of Pilbara

Cons

No pay for inductions or travel.
