Rubbish upper management
Written by MMU HR Truck driver / Charge-up (Current Employee) from Gascoyne River WA on 7 December 2019
Wannabe Yes management with no people skills, the ones who get put into management jobs because they suck up to the bosses.
No pay rises for the last 5 years no wonder they can’t keep good operators.
