Good supervisors always something different working civil. Always paid correctly they were always willing to help if any family problems. If you did your job they left you alone.

Nrw were once privately owned and they looked after their workers. It was give and take with in reason on both sides. Now the big asx listed company just fleece its workforce.
The turnover of personnel on their projects would be massive.

Personnel aren’t rewarded for ability, experience or loayalty rather they are awarded for how much they grease the bosses!

Get up early in and get ready for work 3:30am - 4:00am
Get your lunch and have breakfast and head out to your bus with your work mates. Get to work and have your PSI Meetings every morning before work, so you would know what was going on for that day.
Pros
good mates
Cons
long hours

Great company to work for always keeping work balance and family life managed to build a good and safe work culture. Only left this job because off family commitments . Good training provided to improve skill levels to help move up the ladder if desired. Working a seven and seven roster was a great work balance for me.
Pros
Good food and accommodation when away
Cons
Being away from family for seven days

NRW has lots of systems and processes designed to eliminate waste and reduce costs, attributes that appealed to me. If you can deliver projects in a timely and cost effective manner you are an attractive business to investors.
Pros
Good rewards.
Cons
15/6 roster has work life balance too much in NRW's favour

First starting in 2005 on an old Bell 40 Moxy, and over the years, went from Mining to Civil. Many trucks later, I ended back on a Loader at Cape Lambert. It's been a good learning curve, watching people on all machines and seeing what and why they do certain things. Helps you learn a lot when operating these machines. That's what I love about civil works, you can always learn things.
Pros
4 and 1
Cons
Only allowed to do 4 and 1
