Same role
Administration Officer (Former Employee) - Rotorua, N
I worked with a great group of people and I've learned so much from them. They were helpful and friendly and we had lots of good times. Management isn't the best in my opinion although there many good people in this position, the one that I know of wasn't able to manage people at the professional level required. Getting to know the work, because of all the facets to it was hard, but once learned it became fun.
Pros
Learn about and visit some of the most beautiful places on Earth
