I start work at 6.00am and finish at 4.00pm, Monday to Thursday and travel an hour to & from work.
During my 6 years with Lend Lease, I've learnt things such as Target Estimate Costing, Target Cost Scheduling, Rostering, Invoicing, Purchasing, used systems such as JDE, Jobpac, MEX, Preceda and Project Wise.
I've also learnt so much about safety on – more... site, being voted by my peers to be a Site Safety Representative, doing job inspections, identifying hazards & job safety audits.
I work with mainly men (me & 24 men), which I found to be interesting and enjoyable. I have liked working with the guys, they have also taught me so much, I've also gone out, gotten my hands dirty and helped them on jobs as a Trades Assistant.
We have been through 5 managers in 6 years, this has probably been the hardest thing about my job. I feel as though I've had to prove myself and my work ethic, to each and every one of the managers that we have had.
The most enjoyable thing about my job has been, earning the respect of the guys I work with, gaining friends along the way though the people I've met over all of the companies divisions, being able to help upper Management, Management, The Client, and whoever else has needed it, when asked or needed and the feeling that I've achieved so much since starting with the company. – less
