Casual Only - Don’t Expect Full-Time Permanent Position
Traffic Controller (Current Employee) – Varied – 10 June 2018
Simply put... *You are required to sign an outdated Enterprise Bargaining Agreement (EBA) that really only benefits the company in making profit, before even eligible to work with Workforce Road Services, and most recent EBA was rejected by Fair Work Commission, due to multiple formal disputes.
*You are paid on Casual basis, yet, you are criticised by Management for not wanting to work Full-Time, and in many cases, you won’t receive any work from allocator, if you dare to dispute the matter or don’t accept job texts sent at random hours.
* You can potentially earn good money working in Traffic Control, but, you need to work for more than 60 hours a week as Casual to earn a living and/or have enough saved, if work becomes inconsistent or you become sick and cannot work, as you get no benefits that Full-Time (rare) employees are accustomed to getting.
Labourer (Casual - concrete) (Current Employee) – Perth WA – 20 January 2018
Onboarding was quick but afterwards communication dropped off to nil. PPE was very slow to be issued and kept having to chase it up. Low hourly rate also doesn't encourage longevity. Also a lot of non-English speaking people on crews..
Quickly onboarded, weekly pay, work was close to home.
Low hourly rate, long hours 6 days a week, >80 457s/non-english speaking workers
SUB-CONTRACT PLANT OPERATOR/LABOURER (Current Employee) – Central Coast NSW – 2 January 2018
I have been lucky to have worked with some great companies over my time with workforce international.central coast council being the most rewarding, having learnt many new skills with a large variety of worksites and duties.
Telling an employee there not “good enough and too slow” because another employees actions would not work for this company they mess you around tell you there gonna transfer but really there not doing anything for you, just sit and wait for nothing absolute joke
Was good money but hard work and wasn't consistent work, only offering work to employees when the work was needed. Tried to gain more qualifications through work, however it was more of a who you know system not what you know.
Alright to work for but they hire to many traffic controllers with not enough work so some days you go weeks without work so not a job for stable income, Some very friendly supervisors who will teach you a lot and give good advice but most just talk about each other and gossip like crazy.
Good pay rate, Some friendly supervisors.
Not much work, Too many traffic controllers, SOOO much gossip...
Traffic controller (Former Employee) – Sydney Western Suburbs NSW – 1 March 2017
Sometimes you get tempted in life by illusory things, and that is exactly what Workforce is I have been around the traps and have worked for good and bad - my advice DON'T work for these charlatans no matter how desperate you are for work - you have been warned!
Process Worker (Former Employee) – Dubbo NSW – 26 February 2017
A typical day: be at work by 7 clock on put my equipment into the lunch room put protective equipment on and head into the plant, I learnt to pack pet food the most enjoyable part of the day was working and meeting new people.
