Customer Service Role

Oct 2021

Customer Service Role

South Australia, Australia

Do not ever assume this business cares for you.

The good things

The comradery, the teams, the friendships that you formed on a day to day basis. Working from home opportunities were good while they lasted but were then scaled back in an effort to have the business look busier than it was.
Continue reading

The challenges

The complete and utter farce that was promised career development. Opportunities were awarded based on social connections and friendships frequently and without much attempt to cover it up. Hard work was rewarded with more hard work and only superficial acknowledgement. Additional responsibilities would be granted for no extra pay under the guise of career progression that never became reality. There was little to no caring for mental or emotional health of the employees. At the end of the day, everyone was just another number.

Administration Role

Jul 2021

Administration Role

South Australia, Australia

Terrible management with little to no training in the systems etc.

The good things

The other basic staff are nice.
Continue reading

The challenges

Untrained management, broken systems, lack of any training, no ability to develop and you're expected to train your replacements in another country before you're told that you're no longer wanted in the company because off. Shore is cheaper

Account Manager

Feb 2021

Account Manager

Victoria, Australia
1 to 2 years in the role, former employee

You are just a number in a revolving door at this organisation.

The good things

City location was a good.
Continue reading

The challenges

Print is on the decline. They push for results but budgets change. The push for revenue is overseen with the lack of customer demand for advertising. Have used big tech to get through the door at a very inflated price, organisations do not have the budgets to spend in these offerings.

Reporter

Reporter

Queensland, Australia
Less than 1 year in the role,

A job from hell

The good things

I enjoyed my role as a reporter and being able to share community stories for others to enjoy.
Continue reading

The challenges

The training was pathetic. Imagine you start a new job and your only training was a textbook, a couple of emails and some irregular feedback/coaching. Add in getting yelled and screamed at for making one mistake and having to work well overtime just because you forgot a full stop. The colleagues were average and weren't always supportive/caring. I don't enjoy rolling into work with a smile and saying hi to everyone and not getting a single response. Even if you are busy, just quickly say hello. Finally? Working from home. I felt so isolated and like I had no personal space at all.
