Productive, great environment, good people, constant learning & good company perks
I was liked by all due to my easy, positive, helpful and quiet nature. 7,30 to 4.30pm each day with an hour lunch break - not always taken but great to have it should things need to get done outside of work time. I learned so much since I joined Council - how to name roads, allocating addressing, assist clients with addressing or road name change queries, learned about all Council assets - parks, roads, sewer, water, stormwater and how to maintain them in GIS for internal & external clients to view using an online mapping website - which we maintained. Management was not involved enough. Workplace culture was good and and health and safety was encouraged and constantly promoted. The hardest part of the job was waiting for information or not having enough support from managers - where more staff were needed in certain areas. This would relieve pressure and stress.
I enjoyed the challenge of completing tasks, assisting others and being appreciated. It was great to see the information gathered, later applied and being represented on the online mapping website - MiMaps
Every second Friday was a day off - referred to as an RDO (Rostered day off), uniforms, good leave, long service leave
