The diversity of the speciality of my company due to its size. The people are lovely as well.
The culture is good here, everyone is friendly and willing to help each other.
Rotations across different sites every three months
Toll gives me the opportunity to work in a large variety of different sectors and areas. This variety keeps the work fresh, and the learning constant.
The variety of work and diversity is something I like most about working at Toll. Everyday brings a new challenge and makes you think differently. It is a very fast paced environment and you have to work with members from senior management to staff working on the floor!
Some of the systems and software need to be updated to reduce the amount of manual work and improve efficiency.
Uncertainty in the business can sometimes hinder work or project development.
The company is going through a huge transformation, due to which there is resistance amongst staff (in certain divisions). This uncertainty can have a negative impact on the way you think about your career. But this situation can teach us a lot too.
Slow and old software interfaces, internet, not thinking of automating
The culture in the offices varies distinctly from site to site, which is one of the exciting aspects as well as challenges of working at Toll. My experience has been different across the two sites I have been at so far. One had a very high performing culture, with group accountability at the forefront. The other site has a much different culture - one of just getting the job done. Seeing how these cultures differ and how they affect the output has been a fantastic learning experience. Outside of the office, everyone has been incredibly welcoming and sociable. There are plenty of events and employee's regularly see each other outside of working hours.

In addition to general behavioural questions, I was asked about Toll's culture and why I wanted to be a part of it. I was asked about the industry - logistics and supply chain, and why I wanted to be part of the industry.
Development workshops in between each rotation are very useful for character building and adapting to change. I have also learnt quite a lot about management skills and office dynamics through my work.
