Awful place. I highly recommend that you neither interview nor work here. They treat potential and actual employees like gum on the bottom of their shoes.

Fun work environment, I learned a lot about glasswool and how it is needed in the building industry, there wasn’t really anything hard about the job, it is pretty easy if everyone just works as a team, most enjoyable part would be the conversations and jokes with the workmates
Pros
Munch truck
Cons
Itchy from product

Culture and Senior Management was poor, very top heavy. Numerous failed Senior appointments with empty promises of change. Branch left understaffed and poorly stocked.

Had the pleasure of working with a great team. Made it pleasant to go to work each day.
Unfortunately a recent restructuring of the organisation saw several people made redundant, including myself. Would have been ok if I hadn’t only just joined the organisation and was 9 months into the role.
Pros
Great people
Cons
No job security, redundancy was poorly managed. No communication, no face time engagement from hr.

The supply chain and customer base was very diverse, and allowed me to further develop my skill sets in stakeholder management.

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.
Pros
Work is close to home
Cons
Long hours

The most difficult aspect was the culture, far too many people looking after their own reputations vs. working together to get goals etc. completed and rolled out.
Pros
Travel
Cons
Office Politics

Difficult getting stakeholder alignment

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.
Pros
Working within a great team environment
Cons
24/5 operation which requires varied and sometimes long hours
