First of all if this is in the wrong section please feel free to move it.
Im new to the forums and was just after some info to help me make a more informed decision.
I recently applied for a job as a trainee loco assistant with Railtrain Pty Ltd in the Geelong area (Vic for anyone who was wondering)
i was excited to be told i had an interview and even more excited to be told a few days later i was successful in my interview and would be able to start my training (providing i pass CAT 1 ect...) But my excitement changed rather fast when i was told all the geelong positions had in fact been filled and after my training in Geelong i would actually be sent to Marybourough, Vic i assume still working as a casual with PN
Now my Delmar is my partner and her kids. So a simple decision has been turned into a rather hard one as my partner is not in the position to move closer to Marymourough for various reasons.
I was wanting to know if anyone in Victoria (or anywhere really lol) has worked as a casual for Railtrain Pty Ltd?
I was told in the interview they has an agreement with PN to try and provide casuals with minimum hours. but like people know the reality could be after 6 months i could be out of work. Just curious of other peoples experience with Railtrain / PN
Also iv been unable to find any clear info on what freight actually comes out of Marybourough and what type of work i would most likely be doing (eg i was told the Geelong positions was for the up coming grain season)
The money on offer is a good incentive and i hoping this will be a good foot in the door as jobs like this dont come along to often. So any input people have about the above would be greatly appreciated
