Featured Review
"Operator"12 Mar 2020

Former Employee - Operator

I worked at Watco Companies full-time for more than 5 years

Pros

Great company to work for

Cons

Certain areas have no opportunity for advancement

Former Employee - Station Officer

I worked at Metro Trains full-time for more than a year

Pros

Excellent salary for the work you do Free travel throughout Victoria (bus, trains, regional trains, and trams) One of the best roster arrangement I've seen Don't mind the shiftwork, manageable... workload

Cons

Very slow career progression, favoritism by Station Masters. Sometimes abuse by customers, but this is common for all front line staff. Not enough "engaging" duties, no offer to be involved with... projects or other work that is non-operational related.

Advice to Management

Please listen to your employees and work on improving the culture.
