I love going out on on my days off to walks around The Rock and resort. Watching the sunrise and sunset every day was amazing. Just wish I got to do more exploring more of the northern Territory.

Pros

Free lunches

Cons

Very hot in summer time and very remote 5 hours drive from the nearest time.

Poor management - Sails in the desert hotelFunny unfair rules for housing

-Managers don’t listen to their staff and it’s a loss if you work hard as managers don’t take any action to the lazy staffs. - You get different housing depends on your position so a single manager can get 2 bedroom proper house for themself but a line staff with family member of 4 get a studio room. And they never have enough house for some position so need to be on the forever waitlist even your contract is qualified for it.

Good place for work in every aspect, no merit based geowth since 2019

Could have better leaders, especially gm's of the hotels Head of departments especially FnB department between 2019 n 2021. Do not care to retain good workers, I have seen 1000s of good employees come n go I my 5 years term and the management do not care at all, seems like it is on of their policies to not care for hard-working staff.

Pros

People around are great

Cons

Non merit based growth

Good opportunity to accelerate one's career

Good opportunity to accelerate one's career especially in Ayers Rock Resort. Do need some resilience if moving to Yulara but usually a good and memorable experience to everyone.

Pros

Free Lunch and discounted accomodation

Working Opportunity

I really like work in this company, but I think they should give people opportunity to people who are honest. Some of people I know without experience but lying on resume got the job, while people that honest with their resume even with their degree didn't get a chance at all.

With a physical job but a good team work make it easy!

A good place to work in the middle of Australia desert, where you can save all your income. No where to spend your money. Cheap staff accommodation and shuttle bus service. Staff discount rate apply to all service in hotel (restaurant, supermarket, book store, souvenir and cafe) Also a relocation bonus and holiday bonus.

Staff Accommodation is too noisy

Many uneducated people there. They do not care someone who suffer from party noise. and they use the big speaker. so annoyed place and not livable at all

good, but could be better

there are pros and cons to working with this company, they need to seat down and talk to the people who work for them. if the company keeps the workers happy everything would be 100 percent better

Hardly any support from HR

Biggest pro is meeting and making lifelong friends! Hardly received any support from HR. Especially as you are relocating to the middle of nowhere. Job pay is very average good to save money unless you drink or smoke. Very small town (2 min drive around it all) very remote.

Pros

People you meet!

Cons

Pay rate is average, hardly any support for staff out of work, remote

Terrible attitude from HR, ZERO support from senior management.

Sadly, relocated to Ayers Rock Resort from NSW in 2012 as a Security Officer. Having worked in a vast field of the industry upon arriving and seeing what the security control room was like I knew it wasn’t going to be an easy adjustment. They lacked to provide the necessary equipment in order for us to do our role effectively, I was there in winter and we didn’t even have jumpers/jackets given to us where on occasion can easily get into the minuses at night. The primary role just like any in the industry is to protect people and property though without having management and HR backing us was a real let down. We were instructed to what we had to do, abiding by NT legislation though when we enforced the rules HR and alike 9/10 revoked the punishment and let everyone get away with murder, (not in the literal sense) Having the Police in Yulara would make you think it’s going to be reasonably safe working and living there, absolutely not. Back then most residents didn’t call the police in an emergency but instead us as we had a much quicker response time. During my 6 months, I attended, first on the scene violent assaults, domestic abuse cases and brutal sexual assaults. None of this reaches the media either. I highly doubt things have changed.

Pros

Friends I made

Cons

No support from management, Hr, Security Manager. Everyone hates Security.

Progressed from towns electrician to hotels maintenance supervisor

Like all small towns it had it's problems, but I enjoyed working there. Worked in Tech services as an electrician and then was promoted to being hotels supervisor for the 5 star hotel as there was 5 hotels there which different star ratings. Was a great bunch of people and I enjoyed going to the staff pub for a meal and competition darts. There was plenty to do from going to the gym and pools to events that were organised to do.

Pros

People

Cons

Long way away from the nearest city

Good company to gain experience

Good company to gain experience, not to have professional growth. No support from management. Can make good friends. The culture is not very good and lots of turnover

Nice workplace and nice people. Management: a bit weird.

Typical day at work: temporary assignment has been easy for me. Learned: new operating systems. Management: her behaviors are still a mystery. Workplace culture: good. Hardest: no hardest, plenty of time with no work. Most enjoyable: when I could learn something.

Pros

nice and central workplace

Cons

manager not talking at all
