fun work place.
Labourer, driver, machine operator (Former Employee) –  Palmerston North, N21 August 2014
checking equipment in general , go out and do job. I learned that you must be kind to other fellow workers because you never know when you may need each other. I was not happy the way that some management was handled. I made many friends and I still have them as friends today. The hardest part of the job was some expletive undoing the wheel nuts on my ride on mower, and taking a fellow worker back to the depot because he almost wrecked a 1100 dollar motor mower, and he was stoned. The most enjoyable part of the job was getting thankyous, and compliments from members of the public and changing a car tyre for an elderly couple .
Pros
Receiving an award and vouchers from management for a job well done.
Cons
Expletives interfering with my equipment, it was stupi and dangerous

Business Support Officer (Former Employee) –  Palmerston North City, New Zealand9 August 2014
I can't speak highly enough of this organisation and I can't thank them enough for the opportunities that they have given me over the past 13 years of employment. There was never a dull moment. A very interesting and in depth job which had me thinking on my feet.
Through this job I learnt the importance of working as part of a team as well as working on my own. I also learnt that time management is very important in a very busy and complex job.
I worked for three managers, General Manager, Administration Support Manager and the Planning Manager, all of whom wanted everything done yesterday and I think that was the hardest part about my job.
The most enjoyable part of my job would have been the people that I worked with and the friendships that I formed, not only within the Council but also among the outside stakeholders. There are some truly supportive, wonderful people out there.
Pros
Definately the contact with the stakeholders and public.
Cons
No further development opportunities open to me.
