    Hi there!

     

    We are on a couple of months holiday before we arrive in Sydney and that on top of the relaxed London work environment could prove a stressful introduction the aussie workplace.

     

    The question being - what is it like in an aussie office? I've heard they work really hard, is there chatter, do lunches exist etc. Just trying to get my expectations to the proper level :)

     

    Also is there anyone who can help me with tales of their recruitment and pay package negotiation experiences? Did your companies haggle? What sort of benefits come as standard as opposed to needing to push for etc.

     

    Thanks,

    Wazza

        Hi all,
        I came to Australia a year ago to marry my boyfriend. We got married in June 2016 and filed for the partner visa the month after. We've been together since 2012 and have known each other since 2006. I'm American but came from an overseas location as I was working in Asia when we got engaged (during a holiday together)
        I spent Uni studying foreign languages and teaching, and an opportunity has come up for me to teach overseas again. Which I would love to do since I don't have the right certifications to teach in Australia (or the money to get the certifications.)
        I've currently only been able to hold a 6 month job here in Australia as my longest and more temp work, all in customer service which is quite discouraging for an aspiring teacher.
        I'm currently on my bridging A visa and it states I have to be in Australia when the 820/801 visa is granted, I understand that part. Am I able to work overseas after it is granted? The agent/migration service I spoke to on the phone stated if I needed to leave I could go on a Bridging B visa and just come back after 3 months, apply for another bridging B and go back. As you all may guess, that would add up quickly. They said my Visa decision for the 820/801 can be anytime from now until December.
        I CAN postpone me leaving for the job but I need to know I can leave on the 820/801 visa (with the possibility of only visiting once a year) As this job position is in a University, I have a possibility of getting tenure and working permanently for this company. 
         
        At this point, would it be better to go through the visa process or withdraw it and request a refund? (Would the refund even be granted?? 7000 is a lot to lose!) Every time we call we have to be on hold for a few hours and we never get all our questions answered, most answers are left at "I dunno, maybe it's okay" 
        Thanks all
