Great experience

A mixture of 3-5 stars given in some areas of the survey. Work life balanced was 3 due to the fact that we are doing shift which rotates 24 hrs around the clock. 3 was given again at job security and advancement because most of our cocktail servers are recruited as casuals. Therefore shifts are not guaranteed. 4 was given to work culture due to the lack of motivation seen in others. most4 was given to management team due to lack of communication which caused repeated mistakes. Overall, I rate it 5 stars.

Fun, and respectable work place

great learning environment

I completed my apprenticeship here through the Star Culinary Institute. As part of the apprenticeship we all had the opportunity to move to a different restaurant every 3 months. Tafe was organised scheduled and paid for. we also had masterclasses and in house competitions to encourage learning and development. The Star is dedicated to your growth and development as a chef and sets you up for a great career ahead.

One of the best place to work.

Great company. You can gain experience in various environments and platforms without having to leave. Matrix structure does provide some good checks and balances.

This Place Will Make You Feel Replaceable

middle management is good. they take care of their staff. upper management makes questionable decisions and do not listen to what their staff is telling them to change. renovations happen every year. it feels like they are cutting costs at the expense of staff employment. This place hires a lot of people. If you cannot COPE with their work requirements, they MAY NOT make room for it. best to find another job elsewhere that will be more flexible. for example, if you're full time who wants to switch part-time because of uni, you may not get it. back in the good old days, you had a work-life balance. the whole roster for full-timers was consistent the whole month despite having rotating shifts. Now, your days off changes every week. best to call in sick if you need days off since they probably cant swap your days off because the days you want to work instead are "overstaffed." getting long annual leave worth a month is difficult since there's a high chance you wont get it since theres 1-3 days unavailable that they cant accommodate for. if you want to switch to part time, there's a LOOOOONNNNGGGG wait list which you more likely will not get into. want extra shifts as a part-timer or casual? dont expect any. they're "overstaffed" and may not provide anything outside your contracted shifts. BTW theyre hiring more staff. mostly part-time. so, if you want extra shifts, its really hard to get them. there's a higher chance you cant pick up any more shifts outside your contracted hours due to the number of dealers there. there's too many dealers and not enough shifts - 

Pros

free lunch and laundry

Cons

inflexible working hours, career progression is almost non-existent, hard to get the days you want off, many disgruntled customers and will make you feel irreplaceable

A pretty good place to work

Great benefits; management are challenging at times; operationally focused; good career opportunities; variety of roles to move into; work/life balance is good. D&I strategy is great.

Pros

Cons

Underpaid, understaffed, overworked and overscrutinized.

This place destroys morale, management bullies staff. The pay is underwhelming when compared to other control rooms, which all only have a fraction of the work load. Switching shifts between days and nights every two weeks, except when youre on "swing shift" which is every second month or so, where you switch multiple times per week, its extremely unhealthy. The work environment is very toxic, staff members step on each other to get ahead. The job also requires you to give two months written notice if you want to leave, and if you fail to do so they strip you of all leave entitlements and payouts. Multiple staff members have also been the subject of unfair dismissal, so there isnt even any job security. Please do yourself a favor and look elsewhere for work, I'm writing this becauss I dont want anyone else to go through what my workmates and I went through. Literally any other control room job is better, keep looking, stick with regular security until you find something else.

Pros

Some staff are ok

Cons

Literally everything else

Exciting and fun

It's a fun place to work, but has limited career opportunities and creates a narrowed focus on business. The team environment is excellent, and you'll create friends for life. If you enjoy the gaming industry, it's the perfect environment.

Pros

Free lunch, uniforms cleaned, discounted city parking.

Cons

High pressured environment, LONG shift-work hours, heavy regulation

Great Pay

The pay is amazing however, due to being a 24/7 business, its hard to have a balanced work/life balance. Especially on Christmas and New Years. There is also a block out period around Christmas where you can't take leave from work, without special confirmation from management.

Pros

Free lunch, good pay, uniform provided, dry cleaning provided

Cons

24/7 availability, no time off at Christmas
