Good to get a 2nd visa. Bad for health.
Meat Process Worker (Former Employee) –  Gympie QLD 45701 June 2018
No waiting, regular shifts. However, the day time and the night time is changed every other week. Your biorhythm will be broken. 그래도 세 달만 참고 일하면 세컨비자가 나옵니다~ 화이팅!ㅋㅋ

Pretty good job if u like to work hard
Work Group supervisor (Former Employee) –  Gympie QLD7 June 2017
This is not your average meat works. It is a lot harder then most but the team is very supportive. The pay is not very good, u can earn the same as a supervisor there as a slicer makes at ACC. it is a good place to start because you get to advance a lot there and learn everything unlike other meat works were u spend a life time on one job (teys bros). the work is very hard but it prepares you for other meat works as everything just gets easier when u leave :). Only bad thing is the paperwork u have to fill out once a month. very long and the same questions over and over again.
Pros
Great learning experience, close team
Cons
paper work and money are bad

Truck driver team leader 2ic (Former Employee) –  Gympie QLD14 October 2012
A typical day at work started with truck prestart check manifest and delivery dockets drive to butcher shops from the Gold Coast to Rockhampton delivering body beef, lambs, pigs and carton meat. Day time and night deliverys with keys. Unloading of truck in the yard washing of the truck and preloading for ather drivers.
I learnt about time and fatuige managment how to drive a forklift how to load a truck to a manifest.
Management was good however very demanding at times.
Co workers were a great bunch of blokes willing to lend a hand if needed.
Never starting the shift the same time every day and the 80 to 100kg pieces of body beef to be carried of the truck in the middle of the night by your self.
Job satistfaction and the challenge of delivering up to 18ton of meat to the customers with out any mistakes and the customer relations
and frendships built along the way.
Pros
social club events and staf bbq
Cons
long and inconsistant starts
