Don't work for them
Very poor management with no sense of direction. Management is just vinging it every day.
Gave everybody a paycut and didn't tell anyone.

Just wondered why the pay was less than last week and they have ignored any explanation. We will get back to you.

What can you do when you are stuck out

on a mine site.

Keeps me in work
You have plenty of hours on offer and a wide variety of work is available to you if you are prepared to do the work. Casual employment but regular hours and I get to go home to my family every night.
Pros
Plenty of hours and variety
Cons
Casual employment

Slow and unenjoyable
An unenjoyable experience overall, slow days, long nights sitting in a truck watching life fly by at a rate of knots. I wouldn't reccomend this to any one who would like to maintain a quality lifestyle.

Nice people - poor leadership
There are some really nice people who work at Programmed and individual success is based on the area of the business you’re in. Many of the people in leadership positions are insecure and self-serving.

Overall, the company lacked quality leaders, opportunities for growth, and advancement opportunities for women and people of colour.

Lack of duty of care
They get you a job, and after that job finishes there is nothing.They either have extended holidays or focus on the easy solution to placing ppl in work ie: ppl that can be easily placed.
The environment is gloss and glitter no foundation!

WORST employee agency
Poor communication, they have hardly any work available and when they do most programmed workers have already found work because if they sat around and waited for programmed they’d be homeless.
