Massive amount of winging between staff. They dropped the wages considerably years ago. It’s 15 days on and 6 days off you are completely exhausted by the end of your few weeks and it takes 5 days to get over it you have 1 day of feeling good again then back into.
Pros
Free food
Cons
Long 12 hour days

Overall Sodexo ticks the boxes with training and policies being adhered to.Good team atmosphere within management all the way down to lower workers.Cant help a few rogue cowboys creep in amongst the natives though.
Pros
Recognition of effort
Cons
Some people not the best at team skills

My 6 1/2 years full time with Sodexo was enjoyable working culture. Before that I first started contacting for Sodexo Eastern state's. I noticed allot of change from then to now. I like change and must say it has been for the better. Sodexo now is more organized and business minded. Perth head office is understanding and supportive toward there Teams safety and wellbeing. Unfortunately the there has been a motion of Camp bosses behavior that seemed to be different from Sodexo's policies and code of conduct as Sodexo got more contracts (offshore). eg. Camp bosses favorite workers with result of cyber, Verbal discomfort. Hopefully that has now changed. I would always recommend Sodexo to anyone keen to broaden there horizons as well have many friend's over the years.my first job's with Sodexo was around 2008 at Winderbri, Kenya 1 and 2. Great time's. Thanks for you surveyKind regards,Justin Murphy

Get absolutely everything in writing before starting work with this company they withhold and delay any payroll issues they owe you but cash in leave and deduct money from your pay before communicating it with you.... all you get is a surprise on payday.... questionable actions from HR and management ....recommend avoiding
Pros
friendships formed
Cons
Bullying and racism

Worked as a service attendant. Getting thrown in different departments almost every swing was okay until i wanted something secure. Asked about staying in one department but then got told that "you're a service attendant and you serve where you're needed, not where you want to be".Some village managers only care for themselves and their own purple circle. The days are only bearable if you had a good group of friends for support. A lot of sodexo sites have their own downfalls but seems to me that the thing that they all had in common was having a "purple circle". A group of people who are close to the people with high positions. Get away with whatever they wanted no matter how disturbing/ridiculous. Permanent staff turnover is high. A lot of the time there are more casual staff making it an unreliable environment with you training them and falling back on your own work. Taking your lunch breaks are sometimes frowned upon considering you might be overloaded with work/tasks even if you have a good sense on time management. All in all, more cons than pros. Would only recommend if you're first starting fifo and using it as a stepping stone to go into something bigger and better.
Pros
You're in the same boat as everyone else trying to earn money.
Cons
High staff turnover, Low pay

Great company to work for family orientated knowing that your away from you home and loved ones salary could be alright only if you take permanent position you had to pay your own flights unless chef or project manager but I heard the salary even dropped again after I finished which would change my review a little
Pros
Great company to work for, great for meeting new people on a regular basis as big turnover in workers coming through the camps
Cons
Being away from family, and having to pay your own flights

All cleaners and service attendants are paid at a significantly different wage. Ranging from 16.05p/h - 37p/h. Be sure to be clear about wage and expected hours to work before commencing having it all in writing.

The unpredictability to of start and finish dates, then took weeks for busy management to get back to me ... created much unsureness and limbo. I will go on adventures and holidays next time instead of waiting for the expected shift dates.

Not enough hours. Get paid hourly rate but they wouldn’t pay me if I work overtime. Keep on adding duties and expect the jobs to be done within the same timeframe. Even if it means you have to stay back to do the job, however won’t pay you for that over time. Get blamed for things you aren’t responsible for and expected to work on my days off. I get yelled at if I don’t pick up the phone on my day off to fill a shift
