Water Treatment Plant Operator - Cert III (Current Employee) – Mackay QLD – 13 February 2018
Work life balance and hourly rate were very average in my department.Don't think for a second that council jobs are more stable than others.Managers try hard but the higher you go the more clueless they get.
mackay regional council is good place to work for as they take family matters seriously, they have a well organised roster with good family hours, having previuosly worked on the sewer crew i found it to be a good job that id gladly take again.

Doing 4 guided tours per day setting up and replenish stock. I learnt a lot about sugar industry and distilling process. The management and co workers are very helpful and ready To assist with a friendly nature. There is no hard part to this work it is very enjoyable . The taste testing and making fairy floss especially the for the Children is the best moments of all.
Enjoyed working with Mackay Regional Council. Everyone is easy to get along with and throughout my time at Council, I made many friends. Friendly environment and there are many different roles within the organisation that you can apply for.
Arbourist & General Operative (Former Employee) – Mackay, Queensland, Australia – 6 November 2014
It was great to learn the different techniques used to fell trees correctly. I also completed a short in house course covering the different types of knots used to guide large sections of trees to the ground from a height.
In a day at the council you would get there 20 minutes before work commences and everyone would discuss what they would be doing for the day and be assigned with a group it was usually something different every now and then. I learned a lot of things while at the council it is a good place for training and tickets. the management was good my bosses were great fellas. some of my co workers were abit different but we all got along and everyone was fairly nice. the hardest part of the job was mostly when we got emergencies and we had to go somewhere and maintain it and keep it safe straight away. the most enjoyable part of the job was at the end of the day you could really tell you made a difference when the roads and concreting was much safer.
Review tasks, correspondence and other information that was sent in. How to refine time management. was the leader of 6 workers and had to co-ordinate readings and holidays. Co-workers were co-operative and had integrity. The hardest part of the job was the weather and trying to co-ordinate water meter readings to be completed in a timely manner. Seeing the end product and sending out the invoices.
Lived in the next block and easy to walk to work - exercise
Business Trainee (Current Employee) – Mackay, QLD – 11 August 2013
A typical day at work is quite interesting as no two days are the same. Every day I learn something new. There is great staff and management. The most enjoyable part of the job would be seeing the smiles on peoples faces when you go that little extra to make sure they are 100% satisfied with their purchase.
