As Public Service as they get
NA (Former Employee) –  Victoria28 October 2018
At the top: confused purpose, leaders competing for oxygen and for the attention/affection of the CEO and COO.

At the worker level: people with incredible passion and talent, but need to fight, every day of the year, for resources.

Really nice place to work
Work Experience Student (Former Employee) –  Melbourne VIC31 May 2017
Typical day would entail friendly faces. Everyone who works there aimed to work so which means the people are happy to work. Lot skills to take out of it once you leave. I still use the skills that I've learnt
Pros
Free lunch on Fridays
Cons
Hard hours

Fire Fighting is a good experience
Firefighter (Former Employee) –  Inglewood VIC13 July 2016
Fire fighting side of the job is always good, you know you have done a good job when a member of the public comes up to you and says thank you for saving my property.

The most beautiful workplace
Volunteer Work (Former Employee) –  VIC20 January 2016
At Parks I was being a volunteer campground host. This meant I had to hike to my workplace and stay at a remote campsite for two weeks. At this place I was to clean up the facilities there and help hikers and people staying at this site. I worked on site at a place with a forest and a beach, this is the most BEAUTIFUL place I have ever seen and my time off well spent. The people liaising from Parks to me were great, I had an induction lots of instruction and they were so helpful and polite the staff went out of their way to look after me. I think there is some chance that this could make applying for a job with Parks easier, I would be more likely to be accepted.
Pros
Free camping and accomodation on days off
Cons
its remote and there are no showers on site
