hey all.. an idea a stole from the old 86dc..

if anyone here is looking for or knows of work going in queensland list it here :)

im currently looking for a forklift driving position somewhere around the archerfield/rocklea area, or anywhere close to springfield for that matter so if anyone knows post here or drop me a PM :)

20th December 2008, 10:46 PM
Hey dude, not real sure on a fork lift operator job but I know of a labour hire mob which base most of their workers on the GC/Brissy and it's surrounds.

Without promoting the company (I have no affeliation to it whatsoever - did a bit of work for them) it's called AWX labour solutions or some BS. There are a few pro's of working labour hire but it's quite often outwieghed by the con's - and this all depends on how desperate you are for work.

-you work on a yes no system. Whether you work or not, this is up to you.
-chances of finding work are pretty high
-create your own roster
-most of the time you can tell the guys what type of work you want to be allocated to and most of the time you will get it.
-quick money
-no bullshitting around and worrying about job quality and or job satisfaction. The 'I'm just a labourer' excuse/belief comes to mind.

-little notice is given when being told when/what/where you will be working.
-fair chance you'll be working for/with a bunch of c*nts
-when bastards take a percentage of your $$ you'll be feeling exploited, no doubt.
-gotta be prepared to drive fair distances with little notice.
-no future in labouring.
-work is not garunteed
-it's hard to get motivated

Sorry I haven't really answered your question man, but I'm bored. :jdmsmile:

Anyone know of any work up the sunny coast?

2nd January 2009, 09:53 AM
I didn't like AWX when I was looking for work back in the day, I found Kelly Industrial to be far more prompt, professional and easier to work with.
That and they got me a job the day after I did my interview.
AWX told me to go to a job interview without telling the people I was coming, that was kinda embarrassing.

Other then that, I know of nothing that is going.

Yeah.. I'm one of those people with SHIT LOADS of experience but no little bits of paper to offically say I can do it... Sucks arse soo hard..

Specially cause most places say...
Ohh your not trade qualified. we can only pay like half of what the guy working beside you gets, and he does a fuckin shit job.!!

17th February 2009, 11:05 PM
Plenty of arse hole bosses out there.

Stick it out somewhere long enough to get a ticket, or do what the rest of us did and slug it out for years while being abused and underpayed as an apprentice. Started mine at 21, doing ok now, at 27.

I had 4 jobs in 3 years but walked away trade qualified, thank god.

Don't take no shit. I took two bosses through the wages tribunal in that time.

As in beam saw, edgebander, CNC point to point, forklift that kinda shit..

Anymore info on that liquid petroleum plant??


5th March 2009, 12:53 PM
IMHO experience can talk just as loud, if not louder, than paper. So many job ads I see have experience as necessary but paper only highly regarded. Talk it up on resumes for sure if you've got experience, even if it's not comprehensive. A lot of people are willing to give you a go if you know what the machinery is called, and can provide training (assuming a ticket or something's not needed). Training is cheap and sometimes fast, being less than full production capability just because you don't have a dude manning a machine is expensive.

Yeah, can you tell I've nearly finished a management degree? Lol.

26th March 2009, 09:10 PM
Like posted in my other thread looking for some sorta Mechanical work

31st March 2009, 06:31 PM

If this is what you do, he's in dire need thanks to a bloke quitting today.

Contact the owner, Noel Harris.

His number is 3274 2224. Ring after 2.30pm today.

Good luck, hes a great bloke to work for, I rent some shed space off of him.:thumbup:

26th May 2009, 07:22 PM
Put my name on the un employed list.
Got my trade and in the next sentence lost my job.

Will do anything at all to fill in time til I can get a real machinist job again.

9th July 2009, 05:16 PM
hey all.

So for those looking for a job I may have an oppertunity for some or one. I Have been doing my own auto detailing (mobile) for the past 2 years through a franchise and my contract is coming to an end so ill have all my stuff but due to contracts I am not allowed to continue on my own after the end of the contract so I may be selling my work station.

this will include a 2001 Ford Econovan, inside it has a 300L alloy water tank bolted in as well as a generator, Chemickals galore everything from wheel Acid to pollish, a High pressure hose that is WEO applied as well as a Vackume/ shampoo machene. I have other stuff that i may sell or keep fo myself and my / mates cars. I will be selling my hole set up come september to pay of car debts the van is the most reliable thing i have ever owned and will never skip a beat. There is no customer base as i have to hand that on to the other guys in the franchise but i can help any one who needs it as well as train those who need it in areas like buffing and pollishing and so on.

ILL be selling the lot for around the $15 000 mark which is cheap considering the cost of setting it all up in the van and getting all that you need.

for any info just call me on 0413 661 194 i am happy to talk to any one about it and im located in brisvages

Hi I'm totally over my current profession (Primary teaching) and i am looking to move into something different, although I am at a loss at where to go. Would love something in the automotive industry...

I have:

A BA in business: Major Marketing/commerce

Postgrad in education: (primary to tertiary qualification)

Good knowledge of cars (assembled engines, done engine conversions, rewired aftermarket ecu's & basic tuning etc.

Worked in picture framing for about 4 years, fixing, stretching and framing expensive pieces...

Currently in a bit of a rut and a bit depressed about my current career choice and looking for something refreshing to sink my teeth into.

I thought you guys may have some inside info/suggestions about jobs available. Already doing the whole internet jobsearch thing but alot of the good positions are filled by word of mouth...

Cheers for any info
