Horrible place to work

Stress, disorganised & toxic environment. Awful management. Worked to the bone and made to feel bad. I do not recommend working here at all. So glad to leave and find a wonderful place to work after this.

Cons

No work life balance. Emails all weekend and after hours.

Avoid like the plag

Overworked undervalued, half the staff on stress leave the other half quitting. No compliance or support for staff. Unrealistic demands on your time. Avoid like the plague!

Pros

Cultural diversity

Varied

The people you work with are worth the effort put in, the jobs are varied, but a lot of opportunity and support to grow and build your skills. The workload depends on the dept your employed in.

Cons

Hard Work

Productive and fun workplace with great support from Manager

Every day is different so it's difficult to describe a typical day. Overall it's a great work environment. Hardest part of the job is that when trying to resolve issues, students and staff sometimes do not respond to emails and phone calls.

Pros

Great manager

Cons

No job security

Loved working at the Uni until constant restructuring

Although change is needed in every work place, constant restructuring is damaging to staff morale and doesn't allow for bedding in of current changes before new changes are made. It slowly ate away at the staff and students over a number of years. Loved working with students and my team members were fabulous.

Pros

Student interaction, great team

Cons

Constant restructure made for bad staff morale

Educational and seeing my students "grow and excel"!

The best part about my job is the teaching aspect side of it, teaching undergraduate students and most of all empower them with knowledge and providing them with the right tools to not only pass the subject matter but to excel and succeed in their dream jobs and beyond. The most challenging part is trying to make your superiors happy and delivering the subject matter according to their expectations. Overall I love my job, and I love to see my students grow and excel in their studies.

Pros

Good pay rates.

Cons

Long hours, preparing lesson plans and marking assignments.

Work During its busiest

The busy periods at work are from September to December for the New Students Summer fittings and March to May for the Winter Fittings. On these busy periods we would serve over 300 people On these days every employee must: * Serve each customer with excellent customer service skills * Mulit-task * Be prepared for any questions asked * Be confident * Be fully aware of any changes in school uniform The most enjoyable part of the job is serving each customer efficiently and getting positive feedback from them The hardest part of the job is the cleaning and folding of clothes after a long say at work

Pros

Flexible Hours for School

Cons

No Job Advancement

No training provided

This organisation is poorly organised. I basically was given an office to work in with hardly any training. It was a work it out for yourself attitude. I have a few co-workers that were very helpful but overall not a happy work environment. The pay was excellent and that is why I stayed as long as I did. There isn't any structure there and it's confusing for the students and the administration staff. It is rated as one of the worse TAFEs in Australia.

Pros

good pay

Cons

no structure
