  4. Try some of the companies that supply short-term labour to companies. I used to do basic labour work (bag tipper, pallet stacker) through Adecco - there's plenty of other companies out there that are similar.

  5. Dont know about other states but here you need a green card (OH&S) before you are able to step foot on a building site.. / construction site...

    The OH&S course is piss easy. and about $170 (i think)

  6. yep....go the casual agencies, Drakes, Forstaff, Westaff..etc..etc...etc heaps of em, sign up with 3 or 4 and see which one gives you the most work. Pay is around $17 - $20 an hour for container hands I think at the moment.

  7. I used to work at Clelands Cold Storage. Money wasn't bad, work was good and hard and reasonably energetic - but f*cking boring. Nonetheless they're usually looking for people if memory serves. Look em up. And dress nice for the interview, that really throws 'em.

    Otherwise, I made some reasonable coin from agency work too - I went through Manpower and got a mix of office/data entry/labour/gofer jobs which paid ok but the work wasn't real consistent.
