Avoid, unless you are desperate

If you are capable, there are hundreds of better places out there that will have you in a heartbeat without the unnecessary stress and headaches that this place will bring to your life. The manager will tell you anything and everything to get you through the door and then turn on you in a heartbeat. The list below explains your future day to day life if you wish to ignore the warnings:- From a tech POV, management has no idea what they are doing. Entire IT functions are currently outsourced to more capable MSPs. Soon the entire department will be outsourced also.- Silo mentality across the board and departments.- Awful management, especially in the SYD office. - Micro managed daily - Employees operate on a lower brain frequency than most - No trust - Non-existant HR - Presenteeism - Office politics and nepotism - Old boys' club and very cliquey - Living in the past - IT systems are years behind industry standards - No training, processes or documentation - No respect for your time or respect in general - Contractors get treated like dirt

Pros

Nothing out of the ordinary or worth mentioning.

Cons

See above review.

Toxic environment with bullying starting at the top

The work isn’t hard and the money is great. There are some good people but they are usually ruined after a year or two. The culture is incredibly toxic and bullying is an accepted practice and used by management to move people they don’t like. Nepotism is a very big part of the culture and if you want to go far with the company all you need is a mate with connections.

Pros

Free tea and coffee.

Cons

Long hours. Shift work. Lots of bullying and harassment

Great place to start a working career

Work hard & make good money, plus you can work up the chain of command if you show leadership & have good work ethics . Plus the added bonus of working for local farmers and helping our economy

Fun and exciting and boring all at the same time!

People there are friendly, fun and hardworking. It is easy to learn and also very repetitive. But once you are used to it, everything is pretty okay. =)

Sadly company is greatly impacted by macro factors such as weather and water availability, and abrasive culture.

Sadly company is greatly impacted by macro factors such as weather and water availability, and abrasive culture. Lacking people managers that engage and lead. Questionable behaviours by some.

Old systems and processors

Wouldn't recommend working for this company, with limited training, high expectations, Old processors, old equipment, old work environment, actually very sub standard in this day and age.

Monotonous and unprofessional

A typical day at work started early/late as it was shift work. I learnt more then anything how to efficiently manage machinery to achieve the best output of product available. The management was not professional and not willing enough to fix even small problems. The culture is very shallow as there is no real progression. The hardest part of the job was working with what we had. The most enjoyable part was working with mates.

Very Stressful & Rushed environment

The jobs are not overly difficult but the tools & equipment provided do not meet the standards for the required job. All positions are vulnerable from packer to site manager (revolving door)

Pros

Easy work

Cons

Shift work

Great place to work with friendly workmates

A normal day ay work would include coordinating export and domestic requiremnts for the site, this involved fumigation of product, sourcing shipping containers, rail rolling stock and road transport. I learned the fundimentals of logistics in this role. the management team were very down to earth and supported staff at all time. the co-workers were very friendly and it was a great place to work. The hardest part of the job was being made redundant due to the drought in 2007. the most enjoyable part of the job was being able to train other staff in the various roles within the warehouse/ supply chain environment

Pros

regular training to ensure skills were updated in line with industry standards

Cons

the drought closed the site I was based at
