Physically demanding, work rate is high have to get a lot done in a short amount of time. Team Leaders are not helpful they’re a good at seeing what’s wrong never uplifting the team in the work that they do. Not much support at all. Training is thorough but they do not allow progression in terms of higher roles. Parking should be free
My work involves administration and project work. Managing calendars and assisting with administration as and when required, including HR. I have been introduced to BI, am working with Content Manager as a super user. I am also looking to learn Microsoft Teams, so I can be a more effective conduit for the team.
Great learning experience, starting from the bottom of the hierarchy. Learn a lot this way and opportunities to climb the ladder.
It all depends on which Department you work for. Enforcement Depts tend to have more stress than no enforcement. QG does try to look after it's employees. Job Security is solid. A change of management is too often due to promotions. Scope for moving into other areas of the Depts or to other departments.
I started out really enjoying my work, feeling I was a small but important part of the team that contributes to the health needs of patients. It's very busy on the wards, especially in the mornings. Doctors are very demanding, wanting pathology results ASAP and multiple urgent collects done at once. We were always short staffed, management response was palmed off with "head office won't budget for more staff". The current supervisor has been with Path QLD over 20 yrs, she is set in her ways uninterested in change, unsupportive to staff concerns, uncaring toward staff personal needs, and has created a toxic, negative working environment. The whole department wrote and signed a group letter to HR regarding her behaviour. Head office replied with a warning to staff to cease our bullying behaviour or we would face discipline reaction. 8 long term staff have resigned in as many months since. Qld Health offers good pay rates and salary sacrificing benefits. Excellent opportunity to develop your phlebotomy skills.
Inconsistency with all the different duties in a daily basis. They do not have a professional recruitment criteria to hire new staff. Basically,new staff has to be trained by old staff ,because the trainer officer is lazy to do the job. Some supervisors do not have people skills and disrespectful towards staff members. Nepotism plays a key role to get promoted.
nepotism and disorganisation
First of all it's run by the Fat Controller (The Clerk) what a knob he is and believes he's top dog. Just a lonely fat guy that more than likely got bullied at school. Secondly Security Trainer is some lady that's never even done security nor does she know what she talking about, just weird. To top things off its the least i have ever been paid for working anywhere. My recommendation is keep your job and don't do it for yourself.
being employed at parliament house brisbane
The QGCIO is a fascinating place to work, there is always something new occurring across the QLD Public sector. * Lots of challenges * Working with great peers * Highly complex work environment
Staff members are great to work with - management can be too political with certain things but in my experience are usually very understanding with personal issues
Great work environment
Unless you're in a high up position you're suggestions are usually overlooked
The hours of work are fairly consistent even at the managerial level. The key to success is forming a supportive network across multiple divisions and teams.
I worked at 7 different Queensland Government Departments across a number of roles. The variety and experience gained was great. Mostly weekday hours but also worked shift hours at RBW Hospital Switchboard.
This one day i worked there with my school (the only day we worked there) everything was very strict what you could do what you couldn't that is too be expected with working with a government agency but i don't know the work place felt a bit of the chefs we had to work with weren't the nicest people but seemed very stressed themselves.
free lunch and work experience
Relief teaching pays well but often there is no work available at certain times of the terms. Older children can be very hard on relief teachers so it is best to be selective to what grades and schools you wish to work at. You need to come to work in the state schools with your own coffeee as they rarely provide it. Schools all have tuck shops. If you can apply to work in the Catholic schools you will find the work easier.
