JJ’s Waste is hiring – with great pay and work/life balance

JJ’s Waste is currently hiring in the workshop, with heavy vehicle and maintenance mechanic roles now on offer.

Working at JJ’s Waste means working with a safe, modern and reliable fleet, that’s serviced and maintained in our on-site workshops.

As a JJ’s mechanic, you’ll play an integral role within our workshop team at the depot.

Reporting to the workshop manager, you’ll be conducting all facets of preventative maintenance and repair of heavy rigid vehicles including brakes, steering, suspension, hydraulics and fabrication.

JJ’s Waste operates 365 days a year, collecting bins from across the country.  The company has 23 divisions, located across 135 sites nationally; and it employs nearly 3000 people and operates a massive fleet of over 2300 vehicles.

Working in an essential services industry, JJ’s Waste offers stability to employees and reliability for its customers.

As workshop supervisor Ryan, who has been with the business for the past two years, explained, “We oversee all the maintenance and repairs of trucks, so when anything unexpected happens to the trucks out on the road or in the workshop, we’re pretty well there.

“The drivers put their defects in and we carry out the repairs and maintenance on them. The safer these trucks are the more reliable they’ll be out on the road.”

It’s the people at JJ’s Waste that ensure its services are on time, always reliable and, of course, customer focused.

“We go through a process every 250 hours of visually inspecting all of our vehicles,” said service manager James.

“JJ’s have a great reputation right across Australia for safe trucks and many, many years without a serious incident due to a mechanical fault.”

Working in the JJ’s workshop also means family friendly hours – no more long haul, DIDO or FIFO – as well as great pay rates, particularly for those interested in overtime or additional work on weekends. We will work with you to ensure your work/life balance!

“The afternoon shift is great,” said Ryan. “I don’t think I could ever go back. You wake up at 8am and you’re able to go to the beach, take the dog out and go to the bank and do everything like that, and then still go to work.”

Kieran, an apprentice who has been with the business for just under 12 months, added, “When I was fly-in/fly-out, you’d lose maybe two days travelling. All that’s in the past now. It’s so much better doing this.

“I’ve always got someone to guide me through what I’m doing to make sure the job is done.

“There’s a long-term career opportunity for me here. It’s a great work-life balance and the pay’s great.”

Join JJ’s Waste and become part of a national, Australian family owned and operated business with over 90 years of experience.

Interested applicants can apply now. Light vehicle qualified or second/third year heavy vehicle apprentice candidates are also encouraged to apply.

Depending on the role, the recruitment process may vary slightly; this may include a phone interview, face-to-face interview, skills-based assessment, pre-employment medical and of course, an opportunity to meet the team.
