Used to be a pleasure to work for before I became a number on paper due to staff/management changes.
Pros: great variety of tasks/experiences, good contracts with highly sort after companies
Cons: office staff change positions often, end up working for someone who doesn't seem to care about your previous work experience/future goals, as long as you are filling their positions. basically tell you that you are easily replaceable, if you attempt to negotiate terms or request another job placement, despite a solid work history in the company.
I have worked for the company on and off since 2010,even on my weekends/weeks off while shift working at Westrac. Due to the nature of recruitment agency employment, I have gained a wide range of experience in many fields of work, learning to adapt to changing workplace environments with ease. My co-workers are often like-minded, hard working and easy to get along with, many have been travelers on working holidays that share interesting and inspirational stories.The hardest part of the job lately has been getting sent to jobs I'm not interested/experienced in and feeling like I'm wasting time I could be contributing towards a long-term career, working away from my friends/family/home for little or no financial benefit opposed to working in town because of this and relying on the work they have promised only to have it cancelled at short notice. At the same time, the most enjoyable part of the job has been getting to work in the Pilbara, living the FIFO lifestyle and meeting many interesting people while gaining valuable life skills/work experience.
