Don't waste your time applying for this job if you are a new immigrant
Prison Officer (Former Employee) – Adelaide SA – 2 May 2019
If you are in Adelaide and not a Caucasian don't waste your time applying for this job. Rascist idiots run those tests...could feel the hatred when you talk to some of them for information. Can't believe these guys runs all those asylum seekers detention centers...every one of the non Caucasians I lmet there got rejection ...and they are safe to do so as they dont have to give any explanation for rejection... seriously need to report these haters..I don't know if all serco is same like this...didn't believe when people told me not to go for this .... looks like most job's in Adelaide is like this ,reserved for favorites and own race...
Kitchen Hand (Former Employee) – Murdoch WA – 8 June 2019
One of the worst companies I have ever worked for. Management are all related and the play mind games. There is no one to complain to if you have an issue, as too many married couples in the same office! Promotions are only given to family members, so you can't ever advance in the company. You can't even report bullies to HR as again HR have hired family members. If you do a great job you never get recognized for it, and if you don't brown nose you will be bullied. They send out their army to spy on you all the time. If they want to get rid of you they hand you a misconduct letter like your a criminal. Actually its quiet hilarious as they hand out misconduct letters for the dumbest stuff. Cleaners suddenly become management with no experience only because they are related to someone higher up. They push you do a job that requires at least 3 people all on your own. If you want to be miserable go ahead and work for them. They are all about making money. They advertise themselves as a company with integrity, what a load of rubbish. This is Australia Serco, the land of equal opportunity not who you know. I stayed because I needed to support my family but I was so miserable it took its toll on my family as well. I had no choice but to quit or go on anti depressants.
N/A (Former Employee) – Mill Park VIC – 27 May 2019
I was obligated to attend a 2 hour job info session at IPA recruiting through my Jobseeker provider for a position at their new Mill Park office. They told me I was a succesful applicant and asked me to do 3 days of 'pre-employment training', from 9:30am-4:30pm. It is not paid training. Unpaid pre-employment training is a sneaky and unethical concept. Pay people for their time.
They were hiring jobseekers en masse.
