The hardest thing about the job was lifting the bins up and down the stairs but the thing that i loved about the job was meeting new people learning about there backrounds and also learning what general labouring was all about there was some odd jobs here and there but besides that i loved it.

the best part about working with the crew was getting to know new and different people, learning new things everyday, pushing myself to my limits, being the only female amongst all the males which I really enjoyed goes to show us females can also do a mans job and enjoying it at the same time :-).
Pros
transport money to get us home after work if it was needed.
Cons
exhausted after a long days work.

A rotina na empresa era esperar bem cedo para ser mandado a alguma obra que estivesse precisando de mão de obra extra naquele dia para carregar materiais, fazer escavações, limpeza, etc, serviço pesado. Aprendi a ser competitivo e aperfeiçoei minha conversação na língua inglesa. Não tive muito contato com a direção da empresa pois logo fui mandado como trabalhador fixo em uma obra de um grande prédio, onde fiquei por vários meses. Os colegas, no geral, eram Maoris, e nos dávamos muito bem. A parte mais difícil era o trabalho em si, muitas vezes bastante pesado e a parte agradável era a flexibilidade quanto ao horário e o clima de trabalho.
Pros
Experiência e salário.
Cons
O trabalho era bastante pesado.

This company has a wonderfull culture that promotes ' Good B------d' behaviour to workmates and customers alike. My day started at 6.30am taking workers to sites and making sure they understood what the clients needs are.My main objective was to secure new business by 'cold calling' construction and civl sites in the Auckland area looking to place the some 140 people we had on our books on either short or long term projects.I also attended toolbox and health and safety meetings at many different projects.I was also involved in hiring carpenters, labourers and other tradesmsn and skilled workers for the construction and civil worksites.
Pros
fantastic work atmosphere, and the employer was a thorough gentleman
