Does Metro Trains offer massages?

Pros

Free public transport and a broad selection of food and coffee outlets nearby

Cons

All the trappings of a toxic government bureaucracy. Chaotic, dysfunctional, reactive work environment. Ordered to join a click on first day then rated on participation in performance review. Structurally complex and fractured, Leadership absent. A prevailing attitude of hopelessness. Organisational vision statements reduced to meaningless bumper stickers. Disingenuous ‘no’ people in the mostly unapproachable managerial class.

Advice to Management

Attend at least one leadership course. Stop the nepotism. Read a book.

Does Metro Trains offer family leave?

Pros

Great Salary, paid leave, maternity leave, all that stuff. Great opportunities for advancement if you're willing to invest in yourself in your own time. Work outdoors in the sun and fresh air (at most stations, that is) There's usually an amazing company wide Christmas party and mostly all the slackers and naysayers and losers don't come to it so it's actually really fun.

Cons

Uniform shop is not actually a shop as you can not just go and buy what you need, so you will be stuck with what they give you for the year. The sizing is awful but they will pay for your alterations. If you are remotely tall you will need a lot of alterations. You'll be surrounded by workers who think "brains and emotion are not required" for this job, and they can just show up every day and do nothing, and basically make our grade look machine-replaceable. The training provided will not prepare you for what the job is actually all about. It will mostly only prepare you for trauma and emergency management, which is great, but you have to search for role models to help you do the most basic everyday things, and believe me these stars are few and far between. The RTBU entitlement and corruption can drive you mad, or you can just join in with them and become filled with bitterness and hate towards the company that feeds and clothes you. You choose. Either way if you don't join the union, it will look bad and although bullying and discrimination towards non-union member is not allowed rest assured people will resent you for it. Oh and it costs $30 a week.

Great Salary, paid leave, maternity leave, all that stuff.
