    Great experience and good time.
    Great experience however I chose to keep growing in NGO companies once I have already worked 11 years for them.Also very closed group workers there and I never felt much welcome or included.Low income compared to NGO. Much more micro management that I was used to.

    Most stressful job of my working life so far due to managers
    It is a good outcome for all jobseekers that Max Employment lost their contract to deliver the new Job Active service. This company is wholly focused on profit and ridiculously unattainable KPIs. There is an American style obsession with KPIs and pegging staff and different sites against each other. It is soul destroying for staff that actually want to help people find jobs. This organisation spends as little as possible on the unemployed and those they are supporting in ongoing employment, in order to deliver return on investment to their shareholders. Managers micro manage every aspect of staffs day. If you dare to ask for support for the impossibly high case loads and unrealistic expectations then you are given passive aggressive advice about how you will need to learn strategies to manage your time better and how you need to have better boundaries when you are providing service to job seekers i.e. in order for Max Employment managers to get their bonuses and move up the corporate structure is for staff to deliver little to no actual useful supports to the unemployed or DES participants. The operating model for Max Employment in Job Active and DES is to have extremely high case loads and work staff to burn out. Turnover is high and this is further detrimental to job seekers. It is obviously profitable for Max Employment to have jobseekers in this program long term. Managers at Max Employment are across the board bullies and ultra competitive. This company will squeeze the life out of you and this will happen in a very short space of time. The onboarding training is excellent but once you start working and have a caseload, you will then come to understand that the onboarding training is pure PR and spin. I was naive when I went into the role. The pay is terrible for what the managers seek from you. This company has an overall attitude of contempt for the unemployed.

    Demoralising place to work, staff leave with no self esteem or dignity
    I worked for three years for this company who cared only about getting their outcomes. Management were intimidating, micromanagers that bullied staff.

    Better to seek out employment in a NFP.
    Bitter and twisted place to work. Customers and staff come second to profits. I would not recommend working here to anyone who has an once of integrity.

    High expectations with minimal training and support.
    Do yourself a favour, and just don't bother. Lack of communication, lack of training, lack of concern for safety, lack of support.. I could go on.One of the lowest paying companies in the industry. Oh what's that there's more administrative supports though - is there really? They burn you out and hand you a phone number to tell someone else who might care. Aim for a not for profit.
