Stable job

Indeed Featured review

The most useful review selected by Indeed
Secure job and excellent pay however always pressure from management and shift work takes you away from family life. Great job for single people with no kids.

Great workforce of dedicated individuals

Brilliant workforce of dedicated individuals with a desire to build on many years of fantastic tram operations. Unfortunately high turnover in directors has lead to lack of stability in management. Progression is limited by company politics.

Pros

Free myki

Cons

High management turnover

Pathetic organisation

Never ever work for this organisation. Poor management and very badly run company with many dodgy workplace practices. never ever work for this company it's a very closed shop at middle management level all protecting each other with serious work place problems.

Pros

None at all

Cons

Shifts totally anti life friendly

Be very wary about working for Yarra Trams particularly Customer Service area very poorly run and terrible management who blame the employees for all there terrible decisions. Rosters are very anti social and favours are done for certain staff. Agree totally with above 2 comments.

Terrible organisation to work for concur fully. Middle management are the worst I've ever seen. Incompetence and nepotism is fire particularly in customer service area.

Couldn't agree more managers in the customer service area are accountable to no one and blatantly cover up things from the people higher up.

Fun place to work just not challenging

Fun workplace, great people and fantastic conditions. Problem is haven't learnt enough and after nearly 11 years im becoming a bit stale. Management and co workers are really good people. Hardest part of the job is that it gets very boring at times and it dosent challenge me at all. Most enjoyable part of job is the people are great.

Pros

good people, great pay

Cons

not challenging
