Team Leader Gardener (Former Employee) – Rockhampton City QLD – 20 October 2017
An average day at work can vary greatly within the scopes of the horticulture industry depending on current works with maintenance being to the highest standards at all times while planning and implementing new works into schedules which is based around hot, dry and wet seasons with the inclusion of town park and river front upgrades. All employees are given the opportunity for ongoing training for advancement, with full support from management to further your skill set as an asset to the company. Being a sub tropical climate summer can be hard at times but when you enjoy what you do it's really not all that bad. Quite easily the best part of the job is self satisfaction
Great work/life balance
Due to the large workforce advancement can be at times difficult.
Customer Service Officer (Former Employee) – Rockhampton QLD – 30 July 2017
I learned many skills here especially working with customers and how to handle stressed out callers and ratepayers etc and calm them down when they had a complaint. The most enjoyable part of the job was working with the other staff as part of a team.
Always being cheerful and a smile goes a long way.
Being saddened by elderly customers stories or any cruelty to animals that got reported back.
Team Leader/Supervisor (Former Employee) – Rockhampton QLD – 13 November 2016
Staff can "ruin" a good place to work, which it was, the work load was very high, dealing with a very public place, staff didn't like to be criticised and management tried to make everyone happy, which doesn't happen
