All toxic parts of a work environment existed in Auckland Transport at Britomart at a certain time. This did not come from our well known rude customers.
It was the staff who worked alongside me who made my working life a daily mental perdition.
All kinds of discrimination, rumors, lies, selfishness, narcissism and superiority complexes were found scattered in staff of all ranks across AT.
The worst of my personal experiences, was the way I was treated, I was always looked down upon, and competitiveness. Competition made fellow staff of the same rank not worthy of trust, as they would take advantage of whichever opportunity available to bring you down so that you can just be another step up for them on the corporate ladder.
The best thing about this job was the pay. It was very competitively high. But even that did not compensate for the mental scarring I endured whilst being a staff member there. 9 months of servitude, and upon leaving I was told "Action will be taken against me if I am to contact any staff for references". How rude. I am glad I resigned.
I highly do not recommend this workplace to anyone from any walk of life.
