Reviews by TasNetworks graduate employees
- starstarstarstarstar4.3GradAustralia surveyed 6 graduates working at TasNetworks. Read on to get an insider’s view on life as a graduate. 6 responses.
- Supportive of personal and professional development; Good support group and genuinely nice colleagues; Good range of business departments for choice of career;
- Mentoring, people.
- The people that you work with and the opportunities that are at your disposal
- The learning opportunities.
- Autonomy and freedom
- The only negative would be the fact that the company is going through change currently after a recent merger. A lot of computer systems are changing as well as some of the processes, leaving a few people 'unhappy' which is slowing down workflow.
- Restrictive in opportunities, very slow for work to progress.
- Poor work ethic amongst a few employees.
- The red tape and inability to effect change
What insiders say about…
As a substations engineer, I review internal and external drawings, I assist in the development and delivery of the rolling works program and I offer technical assistance to key internal stakeholders regarding incident investigations and simply the condition of the company's assets.
The leadership group tries to be visible and does a good job at afterhours events. The overall culture of the company is good - the company is full of capable people who are always willing to help and assist you in your development during work hours, and there are often social events after work in which employees get a chance to relax and get to know more people from around the business that they may not get to work with on a day to day basis. There are of course a few people that are fighting the change associated with the merger, but they are becoming few and far between and the majority have seen that this change is a positive thing for all.
Interview was undertaken by a panel of three individuals. Two technical, one non-technical. Technical questions pertained to understanding of general asset management principals. Non-technical questions were pretty generic, probably asked by HR interviewers in most companies.
Research the company thoroughly,
Very flexible. Can usually come and go as I please but within standard hours (7am to 6pm I think).
The pay is competitive with the rest of the industry.
Cake at every grad meeting, large grad program. Super supportive staff numbers.
There is a wide variety of management types at TasNetworks with similarly varying effectiveness.
The company is very supportive of training and personal development. They are also good in the fact that they organise the "soft skills' training, and they leave the organisation of the technical skills training to us. We are to find the courses, justify the reasons we should attend, and then the company will support us. This is great as it puts some responsibility on graduate engineers shoulders and allows them basically free range to discover which courses will most help them through their career. This allows for individuality in personal development and recognises that all graduates do not have the exact same interests or career goals.
When opportunities arise, the hiring process is very fair and the opportunity to move up is recognised and often rewarded. The opportunities may be few and far between however due to being a relatively small company and job openings require movement of people. As yet, I have not had a problem.
There is all those things mentioned. Recruitment I believe is fair and consistent.
A lot to do with wildlife protection recently which I believe is fantastic. Especially since we do a lot of damage to large birds of prey, which we are constantly trying to reduce.
Very good location and facilities. Dress code is very loose, so you can mostly wear whatever is comfortable/
Being a Tasmanian company, the green state is very important and we are constantly researching innovative and renewable technology to introduce into the network. Additionally, most communications are done via email and not print-outs to limit the paper waste. There are also entire business groups who research ways to lessen our disruption to wildlife. There are a bunch of other initiatives, however I am not the correct person to discuss them and I am not fully around them all.Join us to bookmark!
