My experience with Fulton Hogan in the early 2000s might be colored by the company's performance and my particular department at the time so please bear that in mind. Fulton Hogan (FH) is an NZ wide civil construction company with a quite solid reputation in the field. Not a huge player in Auckland, they nevertheless did much work in the infrastructure of the city and maintained a good standard of work. The laboratory arm where I worked ( Testing and QA/QC focused ) was busy and a good workplace. Despite the industry tendency to consider this part of the operation rater an afterthought, the FH lab staff received respect and accolades when performance was well above requirements. However, during my period of work, the culture in the management of the laboratory was not conducive to promotion or retraining - if you showed a talent for a particular segment of the work, that work was all you did, and you were rarely if ever asked to retrain or advance into other capacities. Staffing was often cut to a minimum, especially when a night shift was required and therefore the fewer staff in day shift where expected to perform at a level of a larger team with less resources of time and manpower. However, night shift workers did enjoy a large weekly bonus for that work, and competition was fierce for such positions. Workdays were a minimum of 8.5 hours for a five day week, and weekend work was quite infrequent ( Again, a bonus was paid for weekend work in the laboratory and the position on the roster was strongly contested ). The social and cultural atmosphere of the company wasmore... of a high standard which made up for much of the less pleasant aspects, notably the distance of management form the concerns of staff due to an external focus.less
Good remuneration, bonus schemes, great social culture.
Very long hours, little opportunity for advancement, an external cleint-minded management.
Fulton Hogan Industries provides great flexibility for autonomous employees. Everyone has the opportunity to contribute in their own way.
Project Engineer (Current Employee) – Central Australia Region – 2 October 2017
Fulton Hogan has allowed me to develop myself professionally across a wide variety of roles. Engaged as a Project Engineer currently I have had the opportunity to undertake site engineering work, construction and project management work, health and safety work, quantity surveying and estimating work as well as documentation and management of quality systems within the organisation.
Great opportunities to work autonomously, and contribute in a variety of ways to the delivery of projects and works.
Employment contracts generally states that the hours of work are task orientated, rather than standard hours orientated, This is there for a reason, and that is because you will work hard at Fulton Hogan, If you aren't committed the working conditions can be a deterrent.
Good team, spread of work tasks amongst team could be better.
Contracts Administrator (Former Employee) – Adelaide – 19 September 2017
A really good team, Good office set up, a management team that cares but a bit lacking in how to resource and allocate work load. With the program u was working on the company should have been able to look into processes to help the staff based on previous experience.
Typical day of work varied from dig outs, to potholes, road maintenance. I learned quite a lot working with Fulton Hogan to do with the road environment. The management do their best to make sure that all daily jobs are completed in a proper time frame. The workplace culture at Fulton Hogan is family orientated and safety orientated as well to make sure that we are healthy and able to work well. There are various aspects of the job that are difficult due to unforeseen circumstances and weather etc. The most enjoyable part of working for Fulton Hogan was my work colleagues and the the work friendly environment at the work place.
I would love to work there again, just because of how well structured the job is and how there is a strong team enviroment so your not alone. I love it how its a zero tollerance to harm and health and safety is key making sure every workmate goes home to family. Cheers guy keep up the good work
very unprofessional, treat workers like rubbish, no room for improvement, just take orders from supervisor, abused, stuffed around, spend majority of your time away from family, plenty of bosses that like to shuffle the blame onto the next, get promised job security but wait years, a very unhappy work environment! Some great crew workers but management and new supervisors hired really let this company down.
