Pros & Cons

  • The team environment. Everyone works together to achieve the same goal, the staff are all friendly and make you really feel apart of a team and not just a number.
  • Quick learning curve, exposure to multiple facets of the company mean you are a functioning member of the team and not just performing menial tasks. Site teams take a genuine interest in helping you better understand concepts and ideas to improve your knowledge.
  • Everyone works in a team together.
  • Culture.
  • Workload/hours.
  • At times high workloads can be difficult, but not impossible to manage - particularly if you are still undertaking a study.
  • Communication sometimes may lack.
  • Nothing Really.

Dependent on your own drive, aptitude and work ethic. There is no set time for progression, it's up to you to drive that process.

Culture
Team-based had working culture - everyone is focused on the task at hand. The flat management structure ensures that the Directors are active in the business, and there aren't multiple levels of mid/top tier management. Good social opportunities out of work hours if you are interested

Seems diverse, however, I haven't really paid attention to this area.

I have transitioned from the estimating department onto my first project as a Contracts administrator cadet. I work closely with the construction team and am responsible for distributing documents to subcontractors, taking meeting minutes, ordering resources etc.

Management
The managers make great mentors. I couldn't speak highly enough about my past mentor. I was paired with someone who challenged me enough without overwhelming me, and we set goals for me to achieve over a course of time. The opportunity to have a mentor is an extremely valuable tool, they really do take the time to teach you and make sure you understand what it is your doing.

Great office facilities, an abundance of resources, quality joinery and furniture.

Recruitment

Recruitment
Referral from an employee, then a phone interview, in-person interview. I'd say assessment comes down to your personality, how well you work/communicate with others, an work ethic. Previous experience? What role can you see yourself doing? What made you interested in construction? What is your past experience (non-industry related)? I think a direct, honest approach is best. If you be yourself and show a keen interest to work hard and learn you'll have a good chance.

Training

Training
I started in the estimating cadet program, having no experience estimating whatsoever. However, I graduated from the program after 6 months, with a better understanding of how to read drawings, learnt how to measure multiple projects, built confidence speaking to subcontractors and answering their queries and overall built up confidence in myself.

Work Hours
7.00 am to 6.00 pm on average. This will depend on University commitments, however, I have never been knocked back if I've needed time for classes or to study.
