Interesting & variad work
Rollingstock Maintainer (Former Employee) –  Keswick SA16 June 2018
Was a great place to work with good work mates, pity it did flow through to management after a forced change, lack of communication from the top to the work force caused a lack of confidence in management especially when forced redundancies took place as a lot of good loyal workmates were forced out.
Pros
Good work mates, previous manager & the socialising at work.
Cons
long shifts, lack of communication & new managemnt not trustworthy.

job is a solitary play without team work
Draftsman (Former Employee) –  Macquarie Centre NSW6 June 2018
Throughout the company senior and middle management suck.
While permanent staff doing the politics only hied staff trying to trying to push through.
Managers, Engineers and drafters are the worst to come across in the construction industry.
Anyhow no job pressure as mangers do not care.
Receiving and forwarding an email is more than enough to survive.
Pros
no job pressure
Cons

Maintenance Technician (Former Employee) –  Auburn NSW23 November 2017
We get all the parts to assembly the valves.

Learned to assemble 100% accuracy first time.

Inspect all the important parts to the drawings and then continue assembly, so that no time wasted in dismantling faulty products.
Management was supportive in fixing any issues with parts.

We work in teams to the product to meet the customer demand.

Few critical parts should be kept in special containers not to damage the contact area to avoid leaks. This is taken care by high level of house keeping.

When i get the appreciation from customer for the quality of the product.
Pros
Every quarter we get BBQ for safety and productivity
Cons
Lot of care to be taken not to get hurt myself and surrounding people

Open Crane Operator (Former Employee) –  Darwin NT5 June 2017
Oil and gas, it was an eye opening experience to work for this company and in an industry of this magnitude. Supervision and management of trains were what made the jobs bearable as they were always supportive of the men and woman in the field and always ready to help which could also be said of the work force
Pros
Employment at a price
Cons

Reworks Coordinator/LTSC Manager (Former Employee) –  Darwin, NT29 January 2017
With such a diverse range of professionals, there was something new to learn everyday, whether it be work related or personal. There was a large range of different teams and processes within the project and daily interfaces were required.
Management were clear and concise about required targets to be met and the reasoning, if required, behind them.
The general note within the teams was an ambition to complete the project as efficiently as possible.
The most difficult part of the day was time management, as there were regular meetings and several tasks to be completed on a daily basis.
The most enjoyable part of my role was a feeling of accomplishment once a deadline had been met both effectively and efficiently.
Pros
Team Diversity
Cons
Humid Weather
