Great company to work for. I have learned a lot from the people working at Downer, in the technical division. I had to leave the company due to my work visa that expired.

Traffic Controller and Labourer (Temp) (Former Employee) - Wellington
Downers dont hire direct instead to work there you must go via a labour hire firm. They treat their labour hire staffers badly. Anything from making them work up to 13-15 hour days on lollypop duty without a toilet for miles and no known finish times (really hard if youve got kids/pets to pick up from care and the care places shut at 6pm while youre still at work) to promising them full time work after 90 days only then to throw them under a bus after one week for absolutely no reason at all (or some invented reason). Id steer well clear of downer because thats exactly what they are.
