Fletcher building prides itself on 4 values which include Customer Leading, Better together. Being bold, and Protect (Health and Safety). These values are are incorporated in our daily work activities,
Fletcher Building is a good place to work, however I have worked there for two years now and am concerned about long term job security so feel that the best thing to do would be to look for a more stable position to work for.
Work is close to home
The management team are young and motivated and proactive. A great place to work, learn and develop. Plenty of projects to become involved in.
Located in Auckland, New Zealand
Not in Amsterdam, The Netherlands
Had a great time working with them although it was a short time, good bunch to work with they have a laugh and do great work when needed to. They taught me a lot in the short i was there.
Made me happy working there, making good jokes
A typical day can consists of a variety of projects around the production facility focusing on efficiency, machine safety, and general improvements. I have learned a lot of methods around project management, and working with people from a variety of backgrounds. My manager believes in a healthy work/life balance and has an open door policy for anyone who has a question. My co-workers are more than happy to discuss issues, brainstorm etc on projects that I/we are working on. The hardest part of the job is managing contractors to strict deadlines. The most enjoyable part of the job is the challenge from each new project.
I work in a busy operational DC that runs 24/5 with numerous contractors and visitors on site. My role is primarily Health and Safety focused as well as acting as a 2IC for the operations side of the business meaning I have a very varied and fast paced role within the business. A large part of my role is to manage our contractor relationships especially our primary contractor. This includes our delivery to construction sites service which provide a varied range of duties ensuring our contractors meet customer expectations as well as meet all site and legislative requirements. The job can be challenging when working within a production based culture where the primary aim is to ensure the product is delivered on time and in spec to customers. My role requires management fo customer expectations and protecting the companies employees as well as our reputation nationally. The role does provide significant rewards with there being tangible goals which are achievable and you can clearly see the results of both short term and long term projects.
Working within a great team environment

The most enjoyable was the people you work with & the challange of the bigger pours getting trucks out on time and getting the job completed & contractors ringing you to thank you for making their job easy.
