The day would begin with our pre start meeting and then get our tasks for the day. I learnt from skilled Supervisors who did not hesitate to assist. Management were motivated in job completion but NOT at the expense of safety for there employees. Thoroughly enjoyed working with my workmates whom I am still in contact with after 9 years. Hardest part of the job would have to be leaving Downer as no work was on offer at the time of project completion. Forming friendships.

Driver class 2 Mower operator. (Current Employee) - Tauranga, Bay of Plenty
Always under pressure to do the work and meet deadlines. A thankless job. Very few compliments for hard work done. Wages are minimal. Training is minimal. Career advancement is nil.
Pros
PPE Gear provided
Cons
Hard work for little rewards, low pay.
