Pleasant environment and culture through the company. Very supportive and collaborative. Open to new ideas and constantly improving. Fairly efficient work practices. Positive memories of working here. (Obviously it went to an end, which isn't ideal but I wanted to leave a positive review of a past job)
At Vic roads Dandenong all the team leaders have their own favourites. Others are just targeted all the time working there is just being under pressure and stress all the time. I would not recommend anyone to work there at least not my near and dear ones.
fun to work there. good management. work is flexible. all the staff is very helpful. Managment is very flexible and helpful. Salary is good and the other entitlements are excellent
Licence testing was a great job but very tiring. It was a weird job; mostly routine but surprises popped out every day. It was a great group to work with - very cooperative and friendly, supportive, excellent camaraderie. Management were good too, friendly and cooperative. I would have stayed but we were only offered fixed term contracts and then another offer came up elsewhere so I took that.
If you enjoy providing good customer service, want the satisfaction of knowing you have actually helped customers appropriately (even though the customer may not always like the outcome), care about attention to detail or want to work in a happy & healthy workplace - run away! If you want to be treated decently and respected for your assets/abilities rather than your bottom-kissing, the VicRoads Call Centre is not the place for you. If instead you are just fine with inadequate training and support, being seriously micromanaged and you just don't care whether the customer is given the correct answer or stuffed around, then apply now! Also, it is a definite bonus if you enjoy kissing up to people to climb the ladder or have decent opportunities within the centre! * The training and support is laughable. * Some staff on the support line (ie who you ring for help with a call) are not knowlegeable and not trusted among the staff, but management does not care. * Some staff have consistently made the same mistakes over and over for years without obvious repurcussions, while others are left to clean up their mess without recognition. * Some (not all) team leaders are bullies, and management know this but do nothing! * The computer programs are literally decades old (last overhaul was early 2000's). Their only new system (myVicRoads) is regularly out of service or experiencing major glitches! * Far too often you find out about business-rule changes from customers because higher-ups have made announcements to the media before their staff! * Most other areas are understaffed so many processes will take 5-10 times longer than would be acceptable in private enterprise, which is frustrating.
