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.

Multi Skilled Operator (Former Employee) – Sydney Western Suburbs NSW – 21 October 2016
2 good crews run and led by straight forward and easy going management and team leaders never pushed over your limits or boundaries of your ability workers looked after according to policys and if in need of help
Whitford Quarry, has to be a stand alone division. This department is run by an egotistical,narcissistic regional manager whom if you disagree with, your (so called) career will not only stagnate but when you have finally had enough and leave you will get the worst revue imaginable. This guy is that good that he has lost ALL his staff within 2 years. If your ever needed the ultimate mental challenge, then apply for a job there (helps if you don't speak English) and when they give you the yearly appraisal just get him to fill it out as there worthless.. As for there OFI reports (Joke) !!. Good part; The workers Bad part; The lying about incidents and material testing.
Being asked to lie, (material testing) (incidents)
Assistant to the lab technician (Current Employee) – Auckland, Auckland – 24 September 2016
Everyday you meet a lot of people on the site and everyone is really friendly and helpful in your tasks. It's a really good work place for person who doesn't want to sit at one place the whole day. Hardest part is the weather conditions. Most enjoyable part is friendly nature of people and to work with them.

Construction worker (Former Employee) – Christchurch, Canterbury – 26 May 2016
- Every morning you'd have to be highly motivated. - You learn how new things every now and then - managing to finishing a task you set can be difficult sometimes when you have unexpected barrier in the road - working alongside a bunch of good co-workers is always the best. - The hardest part of the job, I'd say is trying to complete a set goal. - But the most enjoyable part of the job, I'd say is heads down work completing a job in the time given.
Vehicle check before leaving the yard Got the gear needed for the job Communication was the key to the job & working together as a team
Management was mostly punctual & on time unless was called out to an emergency like an accident ect.
Co workers were good but you have up's & down's now & then.
Hardest part of the job was to think on your feet in a dire situation & explaining it through to your team so everybody knows exactly where to be & what their roll is. There's also heavy lifting involved, set up & break down of site's. Knowing the measurements of road length & signs. Safety of your team, clients & the public.
Enjoyable part of the job is that your outside & at a different site everyday to change of scenery. Also when everyone knows what the plan is & what they are doing it's easy going.
Lunch breaks were given when needed & the crew were well to work with.
