Azure Integration Architect (Former Employee) –  Kensington NSW17 January 2019
I cannot give a valid opinion on this work site as I haven't been there long enough to create a valid perspective of the place itself. For the short time I was there however, it seemed like a good place to work at.

Great casual demonstrator work if you can land it

I definitely recommend trying to become a demonstrator at UNSW. You have flexibility to plan your lessons and as long as you do your due diligence you'll have a great time.

Don't plan on a long term job in the current climate
Senior Building Facilities Manager (Current Employee) –  Kensington NSW26 July 2018
I enjoyed the faculties I worked with but the change process was daunting. The reorganization has disposed of internal knowledge in the idea that it will be replaced with terabytes with systems that are years away from being effective.
Cons
Restructure is detrimental

It an easy job and hopefully some changes in the cleaning contract in the future.
Facilities Manager (Current Employee) –  Kensington NSW6 February 2017
Start at 6am and reads emails and archibus before you start your day with an Inspection with the Cleaner Contractors.
Then during the day back in the office checking emails/client requests/archibus and finish at 2pm.

Learned more about the Cleaning Contract Specifications - Pricing Tables - Frequency - Weekly/ Monthly Schedules - Invoicing - Quotations.

We have a good team at the UNSW General Service we all get along and everyone has there own Position within the General Service Department.

There are no hard parts for me doing this job at all.

You have your routine day from Monday - Friday and early morning starts and making sure you are always on top of your job and finding ways to always improve in your job.
