Administrative Assistant (Former Employee) – South Melbourne VIC – 16 September 2019
Typical 9-4 day. Everyone in the office was kind and friendly. I learnt many computer skills. Hardest part of the day was being away from my dog for such long hours but if that's the only bad part there truly isn't much to complain about.
Leading Hand electrician for operations (Former Employee) – Toowoomba QLD – 11 February 2019
Company as a whole is excellent. The Toowoomba Grand central shopping center construction management have a lot of room for improvement. Unfortunately the project management was not a true example of Stowe which I am assured from my workmates on the site is a progressive and collaborative company.
I worked for Stowe through WorkPac Labour Hire. The job had a good team spirit. As with all job with target dates, ie the opening of the Commonwealth Games, questions were asked by Stowe Management to the Client and delayed answered given. The crew still met the dead line.
If you're related to management, you keep your job
Electrician/Comms Technician (Former Employee) – Queensland – 3 January 2019
Run by some really incompetent managers that have nothing but self interest. There wasn't much to learn with them as they keep you in the dark, except for the select few which are pretty much all related somehow to managers
Electrical Safety Compliance Officer, ANSTO Site (Current Employee) – Sydney NSW – 4 May 2018
At Stowe, we measure our integrity by the relationships maintained successfully over decades with high profile clients, It’s not just about how viable the relationship is but instead , our workmanship is second to no other company. I am proud to be an integral cog in the Stowe Australia wheel of success . We have been in business for well over 110 years for a good reason.
Electrician and comms tech (Former Employee) – Queensland – 7 January 2017
The worst project manager ever. When you have to beg for material to do your job and get nothing, you know things are bad. Tasks were taking way longer than they should because the lack of gear, they couldn't even supply fixings or screws, we needed to ask other trades or find them on the floor. If you couldn't find the gear you are then instructed to steal gear from other trades to finish the job. Corners cut ever day, using gear that was not suitable for the job because it was onsite ( either Stowes or another trades) not a professional finish to a very large comms project.
A Grade Electrician (Former Employee) – Australia – 28 January 2016
had a lot of electrical advances co workers easy to get a long with a lot of electrical aspects to do every day Learnt a lot about high voltage and fit off temporary power and circuits fit off of switch boards and instuments
A typical day at would be signing doing a safety talk, getting a set of plans and heading off to get the materials to do the work. For example getting a roll of cable and ruffing in the cable. management taught me how to act and handle myself on site. The hardest part of my is knowing when the next job was coming up or when I would be finishing up on the current job. and the most enjoyable part of my job was the roasted days off, the ability to have long weekends when I wanted.
Construction & Service Electrician (Former Employee) – Melbourne, VIC – 10 September 2013
Depending on what sector you worked in would depend on what you did. I worked in service so got to work at a lot of cool places, like defence force bases, newspaper factories whilst seeing a lot of country Victoria and even Hobart for a month, I learned heaps at this company. Being a large company i had the opportunity to work in many different environments and seeing things done from a different angle. Management were well organised and well presented. There was a nice vibe around the office and work site with everyone really friendly. This is one of those jobs which i really enjoyed so don't have much bad to say about it. It was a shame that the GFC made me redundant.
