Nice place to work, they make you feel too happy to work there so you make your best at work. It was one of the best place where I had worked, I highly recommend to you to try work there.

I was working with a roading crew at Paeroa on a few of the road sites. Having W/T/R helped a lot. But when it rained AWF handed out wet weather gear and it was so substandard you got wetter wearing the wet weather gear than you did just standing in the rain. During the day we rang AWF to pick up the coats etc and asked them if we were going to pay for this gear as we handed them back the coats. We/I told them that I had my own gear and they were fine with us using our own gear as the following day it rained heavier than the day before and this time we were drier than the wet day before.
Pros
long hours
Cons
lousy wet weather gear

If I had not been studying during my time with AWF I would have taken the opportunity for the full-time employment that was offered through this agency.
The jobs are physical but once you have proven yourself reliable you tend to get them fairly regularly

Allied work force was a very good company to work for , they always
got me high paying jobs , the last position I had with them was a 5 month job at a winery loading and offloading trucks with a hoist. This was a multi cultural company with many diverse cultures , we all got along very well .The hardest part of the job was when we had finished our work and there was absolutely nothing to do, best part of the job was takeaway Fridays were the company would supply take aways for us .
Pros
discount on wines
Cons
none

It was a good workplace to be, had so much fun. The other workers were friendly, so happy to be around them and work with them. The hours i worked for was 10 hours a day sometimes its 8 hours monday to friday and sometimes in the weekend. The most enjoyable part of the job is getting together and have lunch.
Cons
8-10 hours

A minimum-wage labour agency that will offer you no security in terms of hours, and a poor wage. They are barely a middle-man between you and usurious labour companies.

This was temporary employment which supported my travelling across Asia and New Zealand. A typical day consisted of initially driving the company van to pick up employees to take them to and from the construction site. The daily work involved aiding the site brick layers with preparation and support with brick laying. I learned a great deal about general construction work and health and safety requirements. Adapting to the demands of a working environment in a different country as well as working with people with a wide range of nationalities was the most rewarding part of the job. Adjusting to the climatic differences between England and New Zealand in an outdoor working environment was also a challenge.
Pros
Working in a supportive environment with approachable co-workers and supevisors, I was also given the chance to develop my driving skills in another country.
Cons
Soaring temperatures of 32C in the Summer months.

Usual day at work would be like any other, I learnt that communication is key and team work is a lot easier than working as an individual. Management is great, hardest part of the job will be to wake up and get to work and the fun part of the job is to get in there and do the job while having a laugh with fellow workmates.
Pros
Very helpful with transport
