There are few formal bonus but general pay and conditions as well as opportunities for training are good - that's the nature of the public sector.
I'm very happy with my salary. I get paid more here then I probably would have been doing similar yet different work at another organisation. We do not receive bonuses.
The graduate wage at DSS is relatively competitive. All the public service wages are available online in their Enterprise Agreements so it's easy enough to see what wage you will be paid! Don't forget you get 15.4% superannuation too, which can make a big difference to your total remuneration package! The Department also pays for all graduates to do a Diploma of Government.
The salary fairly reflects the requirements of the role.
Payscales are very fair, and conditions quite good. No opportunities for bonuses however.
