Hi guys,

I'm not sure if job adds are allowed to be posted on this forum or if Chockstone has somewhere more
appropriate to post this info.

If there is anyone in Sydney or Brisbane looking for work within a gear shop environment could they
please send
me there CV along with their hours of availability and what sort of work they are looking for FT/PT/CAS.

Do you give people more than 4 hour shifts and pay penalties.....? Thought not.....

its called casual employment. it gives you the flexability to bugger off whenever you want and climb. you can then wander back in with no responsibilty and talk about how much fun you had while the fulltimers with full shifts and penalties keep the business going. :)

Thanks...I am aware of what casual employment is...

My current casual position gives me a car, phone, laptop, gps and total flexabilty, so you don't need to get raped (non sexual use here, look it up if your offended) just to have flexability.

Deliberatly working people without breaks or penalties only hurts the industry, as you are not going to get experianced people in the door. Paying more doesn't garrantee quality though....

Just my opinion.....

Sounds like you work for Macca's

Penalties are what gear shops have to fork out for due to their predilection for employing climbers to
undertake such extreme tasks such as serve customers, not to mention the miss understandings that
surround the "stock take" task.

Whoa Fish boy where did that come from? You asked a question and answered it yourself without any of
the facts. All of our casual staff currently get a minimum of 4 hour shifts although we reserve the right to
not have to give them the same as most other companies. Currently we don't pay penalty rates but we
aren't the only ones in the industry to do this and to compensate we pay more than some other
companies hourly rates. If you haven't worked for us how can you comment? If you weren't offered a job
or shifts perhaps there is a reason. Everyone is free to choose who they work for and you have to
consider the pros and cons of every employment opportunity but if you get pissed at everyone who
doesn't offer you what you want then you are going to live one stressed life. I wish you luck in your
career path wherever it may take you.
