HSE Training Coordinator (Former Employee) – Brisbane QLD – 9 November 2018
Really good people who work here, but being such a large company it's hard not to feel like a number. Their redundancies are harsh and their culture is tough. A good way to advance your career in a popular industry
Career opportunities, good people, strong safety culture
Customer Service Representative (Former Employee) – Melbourne VIC – 5 November 2018
Origin was great in terms of being able to pick out the people that really shine and work hard and reward them for doing so. Their AHT skills/team games were great and I would like to work in a similar environment again.
It's a great place to start your career and you get a lot of opportunity to progress. That being said, due to some bad investment decisions in the past, the company is always going through redundancy cycles.
Good company to work with when we had our own Commissioning department.
Commissioning Lead (Former Employee) – Surat QLD – 20 August 2018
The Commissioning Team was built into a tight, skilled, reliable group that never missed targets (except for weather conditions). The management and supervision was excellent and built a very strong safety culture and work ethic. The 14 0n 14 0ff roster was ideal for my life balance.
Roster, bonus's, good camps, harmony before restructuring.
Long hours at times, the dismantling of the Commissioning Team.
Social Development Manager (Former Employee) – Brisbane QLD – 23 July 2018
I worked in the Social Performance & Communities team. This team was established to meet regulatory compliance. Once this was no longer a regulatory issue Origin made a decision that Social Performance and Stakeholder relations were no longer required as a specialised skill set. In my seven years at Origin there was no commitment to create value in the communities which host their extractive activities. Only about 6% of supply chain spend was spent on local or regional businesses and no targets for local employment numbers were ever set.

Data Administrator (Former Employee) – West Perth WA – 19 March 2018
This company was one of the most challenging roles I'd ever had. All development was self development. No training on anything. I worked hard to teach myself to load seismic tape data. It was a valuable skill, however it took an extremely long time and when I was hired they knew it was not a skill I possessed, yet I was pressured to perform it in a short space of time, without training. However there were many great opportunities to learn new software and create my own systems and methods for working. I also got to help with the implementation of the very best data/information/document storage system I've seen in any corporation, before or since. I eventually left, when corporate sloppiness (deliberate???) by HR led to me being hired (from a contract role, so still adding value and working for them really) one month after cut-off for annual bonuses. So at the end of 2 years working for them, I wasn't allowed a bonus, despite having added value for the entire previous 12 months... not even a pro-rata'd one. I spoke to HR in Brisbane, as well as my own office management and told them of my dissatisfaction. They lacked sympathy or the ability to think outside the box on corporate policy. So after giving thanks for their school of hard knocks teaching technique, I took another job.
great opportunity to learn self reliance, good small office morale
lack of support/training, poor treatment of staff by HR.
Working with vehicles no day is the same and each brings its own challenges. Learnt further challenges between gas vehicles and fuel and preparing for repairs and servicing. Work place culture and spotlight on safety was very professional and all personal were given ownership to this and there respective jobs. Initially constant vehicle break downs call 24/7 but after initiating a R&M procedure this was reduce. Most enjoyable was when drivers would thank myself and the team for the reliability and presentation of the vehicles.
