Would not comply with contract determination wage scale.

Indeed Featured review

The most useful review selected by Indeed
Easy to get a start with, wage scale gradually increases over several weeks. They set goal standards to increase work availability, only then does wage increase happen.

Pros

None.

Cons

Long hours, under paid job criteria.

Even if your desperate don't work here

Would have to say worst ever company I've ever worked for . Three ring circus without a ring master . Don't get sick or have family emergency they still expect you to work, even with a medical certificate your job will be threatened if you don't show up . Customer service is appauling you can't really help them as several customers said the service is appauling and they feel sorry for you if you work there honestly don't know how the company is still operating.

Pros

The weekend

Cons

People working there are cooperative.

I will give 1 star coz there is no place for zero. I went to work and without prior notice they kick me out. One of the most worst place I have ever worked because of management, not because of workers on field.

Pros

No pros

Not a bad job for beer money

I was only there for about 14 months, but I have to say it was generally enjoyable. Yes, stressful, and over-worked at times, but good people earning an honest crust. I would've liked to have progressed onto more regular run work and less ad-hoc, but it didn't come, so I moved on. I also didn't feel the pay matched the work output and expenses, but maybe that has improved since. Anyway, you don't know, if you don't give it a go.

Pros

People, autonomy, customers

Cons

Stressful, progression

workplace Gameplan

Get in have a talk with the workers , get in get it done , pump out the work hard before first break . Once first break is over switch up positions get as much done and then after lunch all get together to finish strong as a team .

Horrible workplace (run the other way)

Horrible company to work for. Always felt like my job was on the line from week 1, they fired me a week before my probation and I was bring on sales, signing people up. It’s in the company culture to bully and fire people before their 6 months is up. Do not recommend

Pros

Nothing

Cons

Terrible management. They choose when you go on holidays. If you are sick you will be in trouble!

Non pleasant company to work for

I had started the job here for on Tuesday the 25/02/2020 I was already sick at the time and the manager had told me I was doing great along with the two other girls whom was training me. I was taking notes and asking a lot of questions especially when something did not make sense to me. That afternoon the manager had told me I will be on the phones the following day. Come Wednesday 26/02/2020 I was so sick where I had lost my voice and struggled to get up of the morning so I had rang through to Allied advising I was really sick and they could hear it in my voice also. About 2 hours later I had the manager contact me via phone saying she was letting me go and using a ridiculous excuse saying the two girls whom trained me didn't provide good feedback however when I had asked what the feedback was she went quiet and was unable to explain. The manager had given me uniform the day before along with my paper work to fill out which I had done the first day I started but there was no contract there either to state if I was on probation and of how long absolutely nothing explaining about the full-time position they had offered me. Overall the experience with Allied was horrible and will not recommend to anyone.

Freight handling

Duty of care is not very good between workers and management, Salary with no overtime and expectation to stay after hours to complete work left over, Poor management and little to no support from managment with issues regarding the workplace safety.

Pros

Workers are friendly, Mainly backpackers and agency workers.

Cons

Company is unprofessional

No comment

They really didn’t care about there contact drivers. They only care about revenue . They had to many turn over of driver. Plus management had a different view on what’s right and wrong. Never back the drivers word if there was a problem with there clients. As I said they only care about the revenue and keeping contracts

No good.

One of the most unorganised places I've ever been associated it. Prehistoric. The management were filthy pigs. When I left they froze my pay as they do with most. The best times were walking out each night. A few decent blokes working there but if when I way up the good and the bad the bad far outweighed the good. Management let you know when you'd made an error it positive feedback back was no existent.

The worst company

Never work with this company. You are working like a contractor , however the operator pushing you to work overtime over 12 hrs and if you are refuse to do it. Guarantee the next day , you gonna get the worst job or less job. Even they make it hard for you to go on holiday.
