a typical day of work
Cleaner (Current Employee), Pipitea campus, near railway station, wellintonJune 22, 2013
I am currently working in OCS cleaning company. I am working with 5 employees including team leader and one day two of the other workers were absent. My team leader was worried as no worker was send from kelburn campus. So we have to clean 12 floors of the building. We start our work at 7 to 11 and that day though it was hard but i finished the work – more... at 10:30pm. I was appreciated by team leader and supervisor. I alone took rubish from 12 floors, vacumm 3 lecture theatres and clean full ground floor. I was happy in the end but i managed my time and work equally. – less

ever changing busy workplace with positive culture activities
Fees Officer (Former Employee), St Albans, VictoriaApril 15, 2013
Pros: great superannuation scheme
Cons: university funding cuts causing insecurity in the workplace
Had no reason to complain about Victoria University but recently with the cuts in university funding jobs are not as secure as they used to be. Unfortunately VU introduced the Student as Staff program (students are getting employed and replacing permanent staff), this is creating friction In the workplace.
Due to all these changes I decided to take – more... up a VSP. – less

No training provided
Administration Officer (Former Employee), FootscrayNovember 17, 2012
Pros: good pay
Cons: no structure
This organisation is poorly organised. I basically was given an office to work in with hardly any training. It was a work it out for yourself attitude. I have a few co-workers that were very helpful but overall not a happy work environment. The pay was excellent and that is why I stayed as long as I did. There isn't any structure there and it's confusing – more... for the students and the administration staff. It is rated as one of the worse TAFEs in Australia. – less
