I discovered untoward activities and reported only to be forced out, spent $10000 on solicitors and winning to then seeing other work colleagues put through the same process due to poor mismanagement and a horrible culture within the team.

Pros

Cons
wages

If you're not a labor party member/voter …. steer clear. Total lack of integrity and transparency. Forgotten what it means to deliver cost effective services to the community.

This workplace has had a number of narcissists gain positions of power. They set unnecessarily high qualification requirements. They are ageist and discriminate against experiences older people. They made 300 plus people redundant, losing their knowledge base and hiring less capable people at higher rates.
Pros
Hours
Cons
Back stabbing culture

Good people to work with on daily basis and always willing to help you with everyday work duties. If you were not experienced in the workplace duties, use of machinery or protocol of work duties, there was always someone who was willing to give me advice and assist me. The management were fair and reasonably easy to communicate with on a regular basis.
Pros
Short days, early finish times
Cons
Some days were hot and humid.

at the current time, there were work place restructures among several groups in order to resize strength to facilitate better service. Changes were made on completion of my departure and I am unable to comment

Local Government has work - live balance at times. The organisation is going through a whole organisation transformation currently, with many roles being reviewed to streamline the organisation.

During the time that I was employed by the TCC opportunities of advancement were available which I did take advantage of. Continuous education in workplace health and safety, operation of different machinery, change in the workplace culture, the move towards multi tasking and the transition to computer based job administration were all encompassed in a normal working week. The most demanding part of cultural change was the integration of different work crews and central management. In all, working in a team environment was most rewarding.

A voluntary job involving cash handling and greeting customers. Worked as a gate keeper for four hours and enjoyed it. Met a lot of new faces and didn't mind giving up my time.
