博物馆、美术馆一直是我旅行到任何地方不可放弃的打卡地。虽然,走过的博物馆一字字看过来并没记住什么,走过的美术馆也没能帮我在艺术造诣上有一点点的提升。但我就是喜欢做个伪文艺青年,呆在里面就觉得身心舒畅。


由于并不懂什么艺术流派,这里也没有什么世界名画,就不码一堆字了,直接上图。


展厅环境展厅由两个部分组成,原始的建筑和现代拓建的部分。

关于新西兰代购,一个正在whv的我告诉你最真实的情况

完虐小冻 posted the article • 0 comments • 146 views • 2020-03-27 17:30 • added this tag no more than 24h

来这四个月,其实一直都想做代购,经常听到别人说,随便做一下就是各种月入一两万,每天就发发朋友圈,钱就到手了,太轻松了吧,那些人都是每天发各种热销产品的朋友圈,图片来自小红书,或者电商网,反正看上去就很吸引人的样子,有时候我偶尔看到,甚至都有点想买的欲望,难怪会赚钱呢,不过看过之后都是屏蔽了。来这里的人,whv或者读书的,至少有一半都在做代购吧,(通过每天朋友圈了解到,猜的)。我看了一下,代购大致分为四种吧,(随便分析的,有错误并不重要)

 

1.电商网

 

直接网上付款,各种乱七八糟的网站(我感觉就是),页面都是中文的,什么货都有,保健品,奶粉,护肤品,拍了之后直接发到国内的地址,无痕代发的那种,什么是无痕代发呢,就是我在电商网拍下的货物,网站发到国内,国内的买家是看不到我的付款信息的,也看不到关于这个电商网站的任何信息的,给别人的感觉就是,以为是我在直接一手发货。这就是无痕代发。支付方式可以是这边的纽币,也可以是人民币,甚至还支持支付宝和微信,简直了。。。这边我看到的80%的代购,都是这种,发个朋友圈,动动手指,就把钱赚了。至于网站的真假,货物的真假,我后面在说。

  

2.华人实体店代购




实体店直接选货,付款,店家帮你发往国内,运费3-5刀每公斤不等,发往国内的价格会比你自己买走的价格要低,俗称批发价。或者你懒得去总去实体店,加个店家微信,关注一下公众号,每天店家发什么,代购的人就可以发相应图打广告,图片也是看上去特别有吸引力,各种什么明星亲自推荐,什么新西兰最火爆的产品,什么来这十大必买新西兰的产品之一,反正就是超级有效的感觉,好评如潮的感觉。嗯,反正大多数我都不知道,也没用过,就不评论了。对应的,大多数店家都有相应的电商网站,你可以直接找老板微信下单,也可以电商网下单,同上,无痕代发。华人实体店最大的优势就是,便宜,便宜到我根本不敢买的地步。

 

打个比方,一个swisse men ’s ultivite multivitamin ,翻译过来就是男性复合维生素片,算是一个热销的产品吧,我在paknsave看到的价格是50—55刀价格,paknsave是新西兰最大连锁超市品牌之一,主打就是价格低,我平常日常买吃喝用都是在这个超市,不同的paknsave的价格略有不同,但是总体来说会低于其他大型连锁品牌超市,例如new world和 countdown.所以按照这个理论来说,这个50—55价格算是比较低了。但是,华人实体店,我今天去的那家,号称新西兰最大的华人店,特意看了一下,猜一下多少钱,29刀,几乎是paknsave的一半价格卧槽,简直就是便宜到不行了。

 

那一瞬间我终于知道,为什么别人可以随便做一下代购,就可以月入1-2万人民币,要知道,这款产品,天猫海外直营店上给的价格是285(不知道真假,较大几率真,存在半真半假,好次一起卖的可能),如果我在paknsave买了55刀,假设是合理价格,换算成汇率(4.7)就是258,加上寄回去的邮最低6刀(28快)每公斤,加上来回车子的油费,还有时间成本,这个不卖300说不过去吧,就算卖300,可能也只赚了20-30来块钱?




但是如果那些代购人员在华人实体店或者部分便宜的电商网购买,就只需要29刀(136块)的成本(我感觉是假的,嗯,只是感觉,因为太便宜了),如果她卖给国内的朋友240块一瓶,这么低的价格都可以净赚100+,卧槽,暴利!所以说,那一瞬间,我终于可以理解为什么这么多人在华人实体店作代购了,说这款产品只是举个例子,其他大概看了一下也是各种炒鸡便宜,便宜到,我根本就不敢买的地步。




无法想象这样的价格下,真假能做什么保证,要么就是保健品的水太深了,要么就是有问题。我有问到那些在华人实体店做代购的人,这么便宜的价格购入的保健品卖给国内的亲戚朋友,这样好吗,给的答复大多都是:应该是真的吧,如果是假的话,那新西兰整个中国人的代购行业大多都是假,那就一起假呗,反正大家都吃不出来。是的,whatever,真假我们普通人当然无从判断,赚钱就好了,谁会跟钱过不去呢。

  

3.本地超市购买




正如上文提到的,我前天还想从paknsave代购一波保健品的,我以为价格已经很便宜了,但是没想到还是远远高于华人实体店和部分电商网。但是优点就是,一定会是真的。这个应该是100%是真的,本地人天天都在这里买东西。




countdown的保健品的价格会高于paknsave的价格,感觉会高出5刀左右,没有仔细对比过。超市购买然后找华人店寄回去(6刀每公斤的运费),成本相比直接华人店(东西齐全而且炒鸡便宜,而且有的还包邮,就算不包邮,店里买再寄回国内,只需要3刀每公斤的运费)会高出许多许多,但是超市买的东西可以保证本土和真实,我只看到极少数代购是这样的。而且超市购买会存在保健品不齐全的问题,每个超市卖的保健品种类都不一样,想要把代购做大,需要跑进很多超市,这就是为什么都不会超市购买的原因。

 

4.药店购买

 

优点,种类齐全,标价都是英文,都是本地人买的位置,东西也绝对是真的,200%是真的吧,缺点就是贵,比超市购买会贵出一点或者很多。基本上没看过有人在药店购买保健品然后寄回去做代购的,成本太高了,初始价格➕运费,估计赚不了钱吧,除非国内买家钱多,讲究,指定要去药店买。

 

Ps:上面提到的不单止保健品,还有其他热销产品。我今天把paknsave保健品的价格换算成人民币和 国内的淘宝比了一下,除了天猫海外直营店外(有些价格比我高一点点,有些会高很多很多),其余店,就是那种私人代购,绝大多都比我价格低,就是比我在这边买的成本价格都要低,真实厉害了。不得不服,现在想来,估计都是从华人实体店买的吧,毕竟价格要低于我买的很多很多,甚至只有我的一半的价格。给我感觉就是太假了。我自己就是在保健品上班的,一批药会有正常药和次药,次药会打碎重新做,我猜测,嗯,只是猜测,他们是半好半次的再卖?或者半真半假的再卖???不知道,可能水太深了吧,深的我都不敢做代购了。毕竟国内的朋友会觉得你的价格订太高了,不厚道,赚我这么多钱??而很难卖出去的。




Pps:上面说的是保健品和其他,这里还有一个特例,就是奶粉,新西兰为了保证奶粉的质量,为什么不让流露国外的奶粉出现质量问题,出台了不准私人邮寄奶粉的政策。所以,所有的,整个新西兰的奶粉代购,都是找的华人保健品店代发,有可能是从新西兰发货,也有可能是从澳洲发货,甚至还有可能会是从国内仓库发货。不同的仓库,不同的物流,价格都不一样。那么就感觉,嗯,只是感觉,会遇到上面所说到问题,不过从理论上来说,应该不会有问题吧?如果真有问题,就说明整个新西兰奶粉的海外邮寄都可能有问题。。哎,我也不知道,

 

Ppps:海关的记录和各种关税文件这些,是可以伪造的,这个就不用说了吧,所以你所看到的各种海淘,从理论来说,都是可以伪造的,也听说过国内大量回收正品空盒子,然后小作坊里造假,然后在当海外正品卖,谋取暴利的事,代购和海淘的水还是太深了吧 view all

新西兰打工度假经历 Hastings 之蓝莓和罐头厂

完虐小冻 posted the article • 0 comments • 144 views • 2020-03-27 17:20 • added this tag no more than 24h

                                                                Hastings 之蓝莓和罐头厂

写这篇文章的初衷还是一直有人在问关于这个的问题,回答了无数遍了,实在是烦,遂全部记录下来,以后直接发出去就行了。
2月到5月,watties(罐头厂)和gourmet(蓝莓)应该是夏天的神仙工作组合了,其中的watties更是目前我做的所有工作中除了美国的教堂以外最神仙的工作了。全文分2个部分,上半是watties,下半是gourmet。那一届所有whv中可以自信的说,应该没有比我更了解watties的了。下面直接说重点。


watties
1.工资高
具体是有4个等级,grade 1,2,3,4.大多数人都分配到1。grade 1也就是18.5,要知道当时nz的最低工资才16.5,所以大多数厂的工资也是这个,这里最低工资就比16.5高了2,可见福利有多么好了。
grade1一般就是什么:tomato inside inspection,tomato outside inspection ,corn  house ,还有beetroot line,pear line,peach line,labeling之类的,很多很多的工种。

接着grade 2等级,是20刀,一般是tomato machine operator,machine operator之类的,我后来就做的这个.
Grade 3是22刀,QC和QA,也有很多whv在做。
Grade 4有2种,24刀的 cooker(不是厨师,是大缸子里调酱的,加各种配料,也有whv在做),25刀的forklift,也就是叉车司机,必须得有叉车证,whv有得话,也是可以申请的,这个是常年差人的那种。(工资是2月底season快来的时候涨上去,在此之前还是16.5)

2.休息时间超长还付费
一共3个shift,早班6am-2pm,下午班2pm-10pm,晚班10pm-6am,需要提前15分钟来,换衣服交接班,当然与之对应走的时候,也是可以提前走的,具体看部门,有的部门甚至可以提前半个小时就走人,然后上下班都要按指纹打卡,下班前的7分钟就可以打卡,不需要等到整点。一个shift是8个小时,给满8个小时的工资,包括30分钟付费吃饭时间,以及每4个小时就休15分钟的法定付费休息时间。
nz的休息就叫smoko,不叫take a break,理论上来说无论什么部门,都可以一共休息1个小时,然而,很多部门都可以每次休息40分钟,休息三次,一共2个小时!!牛逼吗!!

我开始做的tomato outside inspection就是这样,基本做1,2个小时就休息40分钟,刚做一个多小时又休息40分钟,回去再搞一个小时,又是40分钟,再回去做一个多小时,又休40分钟,再回去搞一个小时,运气好,还可以提前半个小时下班,实在是太好混了,而且他们的机器还经常故障一两个小时,这个休息时间还经常被延长,工作的时候又故障了,就站在那里和工友闲聊就把钱赚了,简直不能再爽了,而且这个40分钟经常被我休成50分钟,也不会有人说什么,等于3个50分钟!!
tomato inside inspection和corn house(里面) 只有2个30分休息时间,休息时间是固定的,不过差不多加来回走路的时间也等于2个40分钟了,而且经常机器故障!!!
corn house外面清洁下水道(虽然清洁都是玉米水的下水道,不过也很恶心)是2个人一起做,可以内部自己协商,我们那时就是2个50分钟。还有后来的machine operator 是一个30,2个15,加上刻意延长,基本也可以休息成,40,20,20。朋友后来做的部门甚至是3个1小时休息,一共3小时卧槽????反正休息时间这点,要比一般的厂公司不要好太多,而且是实打实的上8个小时,拿8个小时工资。

3.加班福利而且工时长
因为2月底到5月底,整3个月都是season,所以经常人手不够,(这就是为什么工资这么高的原因)所以经常会提前打电话给我们,问是否愿意提前4个小时来上班,就是overtime加班。我们是晚班正常是10pm开始,所以他们经常会中午2点3点4点差不多就打电话给我们。如果当天没有摘蓝莓的话,我们肯定是愿意加班的,所以就是6点过去上班,6-10这4个小时,对于我们来说,就是加班,虽然没有额外加班费,但是工时多了嘛,等于一个shift变成了12个小时,而且这4个小时里面实际工作时间只有3个小时甚至更少,基本6点开始,到7.30休30分钟,然后到9.30就可以收手又休息30分钟,到10点开始回归正常的工作的岗位。如果4个小时中机器出了什么故障(经常),或者到了清洁时间(经常)可能相当于只上了2.5个小时班甚至更少?
并且这4个小时的加班,office是根据line的实际需求把你分配到那些地方的,你也不会因为同一个地方工作太久了觉得枯燥,所以在无数的加班中,我基本把大部分的岗位都做了一遍。我本来位置是tomato outside,但是什么peach line,pear line,corn house,tomato inside(这个很热),beetroot line,cleaner该做的全部都做了一遍,总的来说,还是挺有趣的。最轻松就是pear line,说白就是削梨,拿把小刀,再那里慢慢削,supervisor也不会管你,(他们不care人力成本这些东西,大公司就是硬气)最后轻轻松松4个小时工资就到手了。
另外如果你加班多了的话,office的人就会认识你了,只要他一差人,就会第一时间打你电话,所以一周7天,每天12个小时,也是很大可能的。我们那时候还经常34点主动打电话过去问,要不要加班,差不差人之类的,反正钱真的超级好赚,基本周周税后破1100。
另外还有一点,是会经常要求提前半个小时来开会。假设我是晚班,正常情况下,晚上10点开始,差不多9.45就要提前到,换衣服什么的,但是如果开会的话,就只需要9.30就提前过来了,这半个小时也算工资,而且也就最多开10分钟而已,带黑帽子的头头讲讲话,你在下面听着,签个字,0.5小时的钱就到手,然后9.40就又去上面食堂休息,估计休息到9.50再开始上班,最后算8.5个小时工时,钱不要太好赚了。我们那时候经常每天开会,就算不加班,一个星期都有7*8.5=59.5工时
4.牛奶无限免费供应
watties的食堂里面很大,有2层,楼上一层很少有人去(因为牛奶什么的都在第一层),很安静,我就经常跑去楼上睡觉,几个椅子一拼,设个闹钟睡45分钟,完美。楼下有一个很大的冰箱柜,里面全部装满了牛奶,无限免费供应,还有咖啡,茶,糖都是无限供应,6个微波炉好像?很多个面包机,很多人都专门跑到这来吃早餐?当然也有食物售卖,炸鸡汉堡薯条鱼薯之类的,里面的鸡翅2刀一个,真的超级好吃,是我人生中吃过所有鸡翅中最好吃的,没有之一。如果没带饭过来,还可以买一刀的薯条吃,一个不大不小的碗,虽然吃不饱,但是也可以充下饥,再加几杯牛奶下肚,也差不多了,一刀一餐,贼省钱。


5.班次时间随意选择适合2份工
前面说了三个班次,早中晚,大多人最合适的应该是选下午班,这样就早上摘四五小时蓝莓,下午2点开始做watties,一周7天每天都做,两份税后必破1500,(waiites按最低18.5算),如果watties工资高,是22,24,蓝莓又摘的快,估计一周可以税后破2000.而且时间很随意。watties的shift时间和一周几天班是你自己最开始选的,如果选的7天,那7天肯定是要去的,但是早上蓝莓酒随意了,想赚钱就去,不想赚钱就睡个懒觉到11,12点,一周去个一两次,一次5个小时,也可以税后一起拿1100刀,也很棒了。
另外就是选晚班,因为我是晚班,基本都是冲的20刀的额外补贴去的,一天20刀,一星期就是140刀,等于白赚一个房租费,还是可以的,至于早上还去不去蓝莓,就看个人咯,回去睡觉也行,偶尔一周摘一两次也行,差不多两份税后1200,1300,我当时就是这样。不过缺点是不能像上面说的那样可以无限坚持一周,毕竟晚上不睡觉,早上还摘4,5个小时蓝莓是真的很累的。不像上面的早上蓝莓下午watties,每天早睡早起,生活很规律,无限循环多少天都没问题。但如果晚班watties和早上蓝莓真的循环起来,一周7天,每天两份都去,应该很容易税后破1700把。
至于最后的一种,选早班的watties,下午蓝莓或者其他,不太靠谱。因为蓝莓很多时间中午就关门不让进了。你只能去做其他的,估计也有,像苹果厂,果园,果汁厂什么的,那就要自己慢慢去找了。
6.隐藏福利
如果你去上班,你只上了1个小时,然后位置多了,或者机器完全坏了,工作不了了,不需要这么多人了,supervise或者manager会要你下班回家,就算你只上1个小时,他也会跟你算4个小时工时,而且如果你是晚班的话,还会发额外的晚班补贴20刀。我那时就在machine operator,season快结束的时候,10点开始,上到11点,我那条线就停了,没东西产了,就回家了,但实际还是发了20*4h+20补贴=100刀,就站了那么一个小时就赚了100刀,钱不要太好赚了,果然大公司就是不一样,永远都不在意这些小钱~


下面是我的整个从找工作到结束的具体过程,太长可以不看~


我是2019年2月24左右从国内飞的奥克兰,具体日子记不清了,反正是2月底吧,当天到奥克兰后,就发了一条朋友圈,大概就是我回来了,有工作推荐吗之类的,果然朋友圈该发的还是得发,接着就有人联系我,说想去Hastings做蓝莓和watties,找的房子还差个室友一起share房间之类的,就问我去不去。hastings的蓝莓和watties2018年底就听说过了,当时12月上旬还准备去的,可惜那时候脚还没好,最后才被迫回得国。反正如今听说马上season就要来了,正好这边奥克兰刚到也没工作,就答应了,然后联系我的小伙伴告诉我,要我打watties的电话,跟她们说我已经填好了表格,直接问什么时候induction。那时,其实我连Hastings都还没到,更别说填表格了,他说这样做可以节约时间,可以到了之后再去拿表格填。然后我就打了,office的人告诉我,下个星期三induction,到时候直接带表格过去就行了。(watties office电话:06 8243 433 or 06 8731 934,如果今年没有变的话就应该还是这个)
行程决定之后,第二天亚超购置很多东西,毕竟大城市东西多,小镇有没有亚超都不一定(事实是有的),第三天中午出发的,开了一天晚上才到Hastings,由于是夏天旅游旺季,时间也太晚了,没提前定住宿,就airbnb上随便找了个房将就了一晚。第二天早上就直接去watties拿表格,去anz打印statement,复印护照,打印ird,材料准备好就去gourmet拿表格,预约他的induction,也是下个星期三,由于两边的induction重合了,还特意打电话改成了下个星期四。最后一天下来全部搞定。而且下午watties又打电话来,说induction提前到明天早上。我猜估计是急差人之类的?看的房子正好当天晚上也空了出来,直接入住,简直不能太完美了。
房子地址是1111 wall st,是一个大house,中间被隔开,两边除了门外的庭院可以互通,里面中间是隔开的,房东住右边,我们住左边,都是2层,我们这边楼上3个房间,一共四个房客。楼下就是厨房和客厅,客厅还有空调,平常房东基本不会过来左边,除了偶尔在庭院中间碰到,而且他们也什么都不管,这边暖气空调随便开,基本就是等于不与房东同住的情况,而且还不收押金,115一周也不贵,反正简直不能再完美了。而且还有猫!

第三天早上就去induction咯,这里说下,watties有两个厂,一个是310 Frederick street,基本大部分whver都是在这个厂工作,你去拿表格也是去这个厂的门卫那里拿。然后induction的位置是在另外一个厂,1400 Tomoana,当时还由于搞错位置,最后还迟到了半个小时。。induction无非就是那样,里面有个很重要的部分,就是问你想一个星期想上几天班,以及什么shift。基本所有人都选的一星期7天吧,我们选的back shift(晚班),上面说了因为有补贴,基本平均分到8小时上,就等于每小时工资加了2.5。inducation完后,通知明天晚上就上班,节奏很快,没有浪费一天的时间,大公司果然就是不一样。
然后到第二题晚上就开始上班,估计在induction后,每个人的position都是已经分配好了的,根据不同的职位,第一天刚去的时候,领不同颜色的连体服,还有不同的其他装备,围裙,手套,耳罩,套鞋,等等在左边的流水线上穿的是白色的连体服,右边的厂里面穿的就是蓝色的连体服。接着就是带你去相应的职位,我们那是是tomato outside inspection,就摘tomato上面的叶子和纸条,工作很简单,机器坏了或者后面满载了,线就会空,就可以休息一会,整个工作算是很轻松的吧,除了要一直站着以外,不过上面也说了,也不是一直站8个小时,中间三个45钟的休息时间也可以缓一缓了。一周七天每天如此,如果你工作久了,不想在这个position干了,可以申请换到其他的位置,也很简单,直接跟office的人说就可以了。
不过我们一般都是,做一个月后,申请换工资更高的position,比如QC,machine operator等等之类的,这个要看运气和时间,我那个时候天天跑office,整个office的人都认识我了,搞了2个星期才换成20工资的machine operator,也有那种一个线做久了,那个线的supervise直接提拔某个whv做22每小时的QC的事,也有本来18.5的线做的好好的,office的人突然打电话把他换成24刀每小时的cooker的事。总的来说,很看时间和运气,建议想升工资的少年天天跑office。


缺点
去年的watties是由kelly负责运营人事这一块,不知道这种说话准不准确,反正我们从入职到发工资,到每天是否短信通知你上班,到最后辞职都是Kelly来负责的,而不是由Watties的人管。可能是因为要管的人实在太多了,然后又是第一年负责,所以经常工资算错,算多的算少的都有,算多的就不说了,白嫖几个小时爽歪歪,还不用还,还有老实人诚实的去office说,自己工资发多了几个小时,然后office的人告诉他:这种事你自己心里知道就好了,不要说出来了。我也差不多一个season也就多发了一两次4个小时工资?还好,听说还有没去上班,发8个小时工资的人,羡慕死了。所以发多就不用说了,我们这里来说说,工资发少了怎么办。

上面说的,经常9.30开会,这个要签名要提前打卡,但也还是经常没算这0.5个小时,还有经常加班 4个小时忘记算了,明明应该算12个小时,算成了8个小时,还有有时候因为需求,临时到高工资的position上班,结果工资发下来还是算的最低的18.5,反正各种情况少算工资。就我实际例子出发,最开始基本每个星期都会少发钱,也就害的我每个班次的每个休息时间都要跑office去讨工资,他们office有个专门工资纠错的表格,每个人把自己算错的工资填在上面,然后他们统一更正,但是效率很低很低,上个星期的工资还没追回来,这个星期的工资单又出错了。

另外一种方式就是office的人说,要她帮你发邮件给管工资的人,专门单独跟你追回工资,前提是你的跟office的人熟,我那是就是这样,但是由于每个星期的工资都有问题,所以效率也一般,不是太高。
还一种就是自己发邮件给管工资的人,告诉她,你的名字,employee number,哪个部门,哪个shift,正确的工作时间,正确的工资,以及出错的时间和工资。这样初期我弄的还行,后来估计发邮件的人太多了,效率也慢了下来。
最后一种也是最有效的,也是我后来一直在用的。就是直接跟Kelly的在Wellington总部的人打电话发邮件。打电话解释有的人可能觉得太麻烦了,我也只打过几次,后来就都发的邮件,还是发那些,你上班的地方,哪个厂,哪个部门,就是自己的信息之类的,以及正确的错误的工资和时间。可能是总部的关系,那边的语气态度都很好,效率也很高,基本上一两天就可以追回来了。所以在整个season过程中,除了唯一的有一天我是5.30开始加班,应该是算4.5个小时的工时,他只算了我4个小时,这0.5个小时的工时,实在是时间太久了,时间也不符合常理,因为他们一般都是6点开始加班,我也不知道为什么那天要我们5.30就去加班,反正我也打了很多电话,发了很多邮件,后来觉得太浪费时间,就没追究这0.5个小时。除了这个,其余的所有钱都追回来了,算上他们多发我们的工资,其实也还是赚的,所有也就无所谓了。

有人说kelly故意跟你少算,我觉得那不至于,毕竟我的钱都追回来了,而且如果他们小气的话,工资也会这么高,福利也不会这么好了。估计是第一次处理这么大的事,毕竟是全nz最大的罐头厂。

我是从2月底开始wattie上班,上了一个月的18.5tomato outside,后来跟office说要换工资高的岗位,给我换到了20的machine operator,这个前期还慢慢训练了2个星期,每天教一点的那种,也算是比较好上手,缺点就是休息时间少,只有15,30,15。虽然有时候会休息多,不过少,优点是可以偷偷玩手机。前提是不被摄像头发现,所以你得知道所有摄像头的位置。之前的tomato就不能玩手机。然后我在这个岗位一直上到了6月初的season结束。还有因为后期line变少了,不需要这么多人了,经常去做18.5的beetroot线。基本上,一个整个season下来,大多数whv能做的岗位我都做了,算是圆满了。

ps:tomato线会一直贯穿整个season,所以tomato outside一直会有工,甚至包括public holiday,那几天上班的只有tomato outside和我们machine operator,还有少数的几个叉车司机了,2.5倍工资轻松到手。  tomato inside到后期就没工了,不过可以跟office的说,可以继续做beetroot。

beetroot line基本也是贯穿整个season,可以一直做
 
corn house 中间就没工了,部份人可以继续做其他的线,部分人就失业了咯。

peach line和pear line是34月中间一段时间,在此期间会超级大量招人,然后等line结束了,部分可以继续做其他的,部分也失业咯。


pps:就算season结束了,因为已经6月了,冬天已经到了,总的来说,整个nz的工作都已经不好找了,如果你已经提前拿到了雪场的offer或者渔场的offer那就恭喜你,可以无缝连接了,如果感觉找工作很困难,不想动,可以继续留在watties,我那是时候season结束了还在那,office的人就打电话问我,估计还要做多久,有个cookerr的位置给我,做不做,21.9好像,那时nz最低工资才17.7,而且还不是season了,21.9算是工资很高的,固定周一到周五,一个星期5天8小时,一共40小时的那种,可惜我当时已经有其他计划了,就没做,算是错过了一个大offer。

由于没做成cooker,在我走之前,我还有几天,office的人就安排我到另外一个分厂Tomoana去帮忙,具体工作时间那个厂的office的人都会提前一天跟我发消息,几点到几点,什么位置,问我想不想做,然后我再回消息,合适,我做。基本就是这样每天确定明天的工作,听着感觉不稳定的样子,不过其实也还好,也算是weekday每天都有在上班,而且经常做的还是9个小时,10个小时的shift。每天工作岗位也不一样,算了长了见识。其中有一天在做pasta sauce,往一个大的bin里面加入各种酱,都是用很大的铁铲子铲的,又重又恶心,算是整个工作中做的最脏(全身都沾的各种sauce)最累的的活,后来以至于看到pasta就想吐。。。


所以重点来了,要想一直有工,有好工,就得不停的联系office的人,每天跑office很有必要!(追工资每天跑office也是有好处的~)混熟office很有必要!
watties就结束了,还有很多细节没说,如果你去上了你自然就会知道,没去的话讲了感觉也没什么用,所以下面来说蓝莓,也就是gourmet。


gourmet
申请入职最开始已经说了,直接讲重点
1.工资
工资是最低16.5,后来2019年4月1号涨到了17.7。看似低,实际还行,具体算法是,按你每小时摘的kg乘以你摘的种类的价格=你拿的钱,如果这个钱不够每小时16.5,就跟你补到每小时16.5,如果超出了,那个钱就是你实际能拿到的钱(税前)。

举个例子,你今天花了5个小时摘了10kg的A品种果子(极其慢的速度了),这个果子的报价是4刀per kg,所以等于你只摘了10kg*4=40刀,而5个小时的最低工资应该是5*16.5=82.5刀,公司就会补你这82.5-40=42.5刀,所以你最后还是会发5小时的最低工资82.5刀。如果你5小时摘了30kg(比较快),最后你会拿到30kg*4=120刀,这个钱已经超出了最低的82.5刀,所以你到手的钱就是你实际摘的钱120刀。清楚了吗!所以摘的多赚的多,摘的少,也还有最低工资的保证,算是新西兰很好的蓝莓的厂了。(虽然我也经常骂它)

2.休息时间
由于是pick,实际是没有休息时间的,你上5个小时班就在摘5个小时,不停的摘5个小时,中间你也可以自己休息几分钟,没人管你,但是相应的速度就会慢下来。但是这里就有福利,公司会在你每上4个小时还是5小时忘了,补你0.25个小时的break time,就是多发你0.25个小时的工资,就是你实际发工资的工时要比你上的工时要多,虽然补的少,但也可以积少成多咯。毕竟在绝大多数公司都是你上8.5个小时,只发你8个小时工资情况下(因为半个小时吃饭时间不算,强行把工时拖长,贼傻逼)。这种你上4个小时,跟你算4.25实际工时,已经很棒了。


3.bonus
基本每个星期都有bonus,就是你摘的多,奖励就多,比如这你个星期摘了100kg,就再额外奖你100刀,你摘了200刀,就额外奖你200刀,摘300刀额外奖300刀,当然只有一次奖励。如果你天天都去的话,每天7,8个小时,就算摘的慢,200刀奖励也是妥妥的,如果你是每天4,5个小时蓝莓,其余时间做watties,100刀奖励也可以拿的到。反正最后工资算下来,基本可以算到每小时税后21,22.也算是很高的了。

 
除了上面的这种,有时还有额外的bonus,就是当天摘30kg ,就多发30刀,摘50kg就多发50刀,而且可以与上面的奖励重复领,可以说是相当棒了。不过这个很少有,详情要提前关注FB.
最后一种就是,新picker必备,在去填申请gourmet之前,如果你是新人,一定要找到1个或者2个老picker,就是3个一队的那种,可以是一老二新,也可以是二老一新,就是新picker填表的时候要填推荐人,就要填上老picker的名字,然后你们3个就是一个队了,只要你们在新picker上班的第一个星期,三个人一共摘200刀,就可以额外三个人平分200刀的补贴,相当于每人拿66.6,也还行,而且可以与上面的bonus重复。每个人的摘的量没有需求,只要总共一个星期摘了200kg就行。相当于一种公司招人的推广机制吧,反正如果老picker,一直有人填他的名字,自己又每天都去摘,甚至都不要新picker摘,老picker一个星期摘200kg应该是轻轻松松的吧,基本每个星期都可以拿66.6刀的补贴。反正各种补贴算下来,就算只做蓝莓的话,工资也是很观的,而且人只会越摘越快嘛,钱就赚越多咯。
4.蓝莓无限供应
这个就不用说了吧。所有picker都知道,最顶上的最甜最大的果子永远都是被我们自己吃了,一手一大把,直接塞口里,美滋滋,如果不考虑速度快慢的就拿个最低工资的话,可以一直吃一直吃~而且你如果带包进去的话,还可以装很多蓝莓回去吃,只要的摘的量足够你交差就行,因为摘的太慢是会被降带的。

5.摘蓝莓不伤身
nz有很多水果,相应的就有很多picker,什么摘樱桃,要爬梯子,搬梯子,女生难进,亚种人难进,而且picker很难申请,什么摘草莓,要弯腰,超级费腰,摘完一天,浑身都废了的那种,什么摘树莓,有各种刺,什么摘苹果,太重了,伤身体,一般人做不来。摘kiwi看天气,可能赚的多,但时间与wattiea和蓝莓重合,肯定没这边赚的多。而且还可能因为收成不好,赚的少,2019年就收成很差。摘葡萄?这个还真不知道,不做评价。总之相比绝大多数水果而言,蓝莓算是轻松好上手的,还不伤身。

 
优点说完了就来说说上班时间:

上班时间是得提前一天关注FB,它会推送明天的开工时间,基本就是明天6.30开工,哪些颜色的带子可以过来摘,这个星期的bonus还在继续中,大家请加油拿bonus之类的。每个星期结束前,会推送下个星期的bonus是什么赛制。然后每天摘的品种的价格是提前一个星期贴在office的门口,每个品种多少钱一kg,便宜的3刀,贵的4点几刀,相应的贵的就比较难摘,便宜的就很好摘。具体你每天分配的位置,品种,也都是随机分配的,运气好,分的地方好,爆果了,就摘的贼舒服,一撸撸一大串。像我这种完全就是过去摸鱼的,也可以摘成20多刀每小时的。运气不好,就随便摘摘吃吃,就当混工时了咯,反正最低工资各种加补贴可还行。

然后就是带子,如果速度一直太慢的话,公司每天都要补钱给你,如果一直这样,公司就给你降带的,就是变成另外一种颜色的带子,由于具体什么颜色忘了,我这里就直接说成降带了。降带后,需要公司安排人手重新训练你后,才能升回来,而且不是每天都会安排训练的人,所以被降带后,picker就会有上班限制,可能明天所有人都能7点下班,除了被降带的人。其实平时还好,降了很快就升回来了。如果到了4月底就危险了,因为已经快season结束了,一般就不需要速度慢的人来上班了,所以就等于变相fire了。
我那是时候就是这样,我是时而快时而慢的样子,快的时候也能超过最低工资,不过一般都是左右徘徊,然而偏偏最后一段时间,4月底已经快入冬了,早上实在太冷了,我就摘的特别慢,还经常摸下鱼,玩下手机,导致那个星期后就被降带了,然后下个星期一我再去pick的时候通知我已经被降带了,然后告知由于已经是season末了,不需要这个降带的人来上班,也不会安排重新训练升带了,我还专门去office去求情,还跟他们manager发邮件,来来回回发了好多封,最后都没搞成,那个时候我延签就差2个星期,差点没急死我。

然后整个蓝莓season应该是11月可以开始摘了,估计前期工时不长,2018-2019年,是中间12月底1月初的时候,公司发FB说最近果不好,休息一段时间,2月再开始摘,然后可以一直摘到5月左右,也是具体看年份,2019年那个时候,4月底就说马上要结束了,结果一直摘到了6月初还没完。。。算是很长的一个season了。

缺点
时间太随意了,上班时间不固定。上面说了,每天pick start的时间都是提前一天FB推送的,但这个是可能根据天气变动的,比如今天晚上10点推送明天7点开始,结果明天早上6点推送推迟到8点,然后快到八点了又说推迟到10点,甚至直接说取消今天pick的,这种事经常发生,早点发都还好说,我记得有一天应该是7点上班,结果我6.49出的门,出门前看了一下今天6点的最新推送的,还是显示7点开始,嗯,很好,出发,结果我车开到地了发现门关着,一查FB,6.50又发了一个新的推送,今天pick取消。。。。妈蛋。


除了经常临时退后pick start时间,还有经常提前关门,最开始FB上还没明说,只说中午会关门,又没有说中午几点,结果我晚班早上下班回家睡了三个小时再去摘,一去已经关门,然而才刚到11点,你说你关门,你就直接发几点关嘛,说个中午关门,鬼知道中午是几点,可能后面骂的人太多了,season快结束的时候,才明确说,明天几点关门。另外FB gourmet的推送下面基本一大半都是骂声,笑死我了。
由于上面这些原因,我经常三过gourmet而不入,发朋友圈都吐槽了无数回了。不过总的对比优点而言,也还行,毕竟大公司,也还有一些小缺点经常被FB的人骂,比如蓝莓每kg降价,其实也还好,总的来说,价格保持在平均水平线,或者上面一点,毕竟老板是印度人,你就不用指望特别好了。
另外基本整个season,gourmet都在不停的招人。甚至5月都在招人,你敢信??所以很好进,也很好延签,就算你每个星期只摘一次蓝莓,一次摘2-3个小时,只要你每个星期都有payslip,集满12张也能延签,反正我就是这样。最后一点,连续2个星期不去摘的话,会被取消picker的资格。


以上就是所有watties和gourmet的信息。
再附加一些其他的,我那是4月底还是5月初,具体时间忘了,因为摘的太慢了,而被降带了,就等于变相被炒了。然而我还差3张payslip,所以跑了很多家苹果pack厂,结果时间都不符合。最后是FB上找的一个人,算是工头的那种,他拉我到一家小果园做的苹果包装,很简陋的环境,他差人就提前跟我打电话,差不多一个星期上一俩次班的那种。其中还有pick 苹果,然而那天我早上下班回家实在太累了没有去。所幸正好靠的这个小作坊的pack把我最后的三张payslip集齐了。
后来苹果完了,他又打电话给我,问我去不去果汁厂帮忙,就做了很多天的果汁厂,算是赚外快吧,而且果汁厂工资也不低,19,20不等,不过工作环境是冷藏库,有点冷,差外快的朋友可以去打电话问问,地点是407 williams st,homegrown juice company ltd. 至于工头的电话,就不公布了,具体可以在FB上找搜hastings apple pack,很多类似的工头,我就是一个个发消息问的。反正最后在Hastings我都做到了“人在床上睡,砖从天上来”的境界,真是牛逼死我了。

另外Hastings是有亚超的,一个是Asian grocery,就在Hastings的市中心,东西还行,我一般去的就是这个。另外一个是在Napier那边,叫洪客隆?我感觉东西不太全,而且太远了,去了一次就再也没去过了。


最后的ps:如果不想做watties和gourmet,也可以去做apple pack,Hastings有很多厂,直接谷歌地图搜 apple pack就行了,每个厂的时间不一样,我当时还整理了一份每家工厂的每个shift的时间,可惜年代太久远了,记不住了,有车的朋友,还没工作前,可以一家一家去问,选最合适的。
Hastings镇中间还有pick nz hawkes bay的office,免费帮人介绍工作,找工作的可以去看看。
以上就所有信息,由于过了一年了,可能漏了一些细节,不过也无所谓,终于赶在season前弄出来了。前人植树,后人乘凉。真是太羡慕你们有我这样的朋友了,哎,我们下期再见。

(最近应该会把2年所有没写的东西全部补一遍,欠下的总归事要还的,苦悲脸.jpg)

                                                                Hastings 之蓝莓和罐头厂

写这篇文章的初衷还是一直有人在问关于这个的问题,回答了无数遍了,实在是烦,遂全部记录下来,以后直接发出去就行了。
2月到5月,watties(罐头厂)和gourmet(蓝莓)应该是夏天的神仙工作组合了,其中的watties更是目前我做的所有工作中除了美国的教堂以外最神仙的工作了。全文分2个部分,上半是watties,下半是gourmet。那一届所有whv中可以自信的说,应该没有比我更了解watties的了。下面直接说重点。


watties
1.工资高
具体是有4个等级,grade 1,2,3,4.大多数人都分配到1。grade 1也就是18.5,要知道当时nz的最低工资才16.5,所以大多数厂的工资也是这个,这里最低工资就比16.5高了2,可见福利有多么好了。
grade1一般就是什么:tomato inside inspection,tomato outside inspection ,corn  house ,还有beetroot line,pear line,peach line,labeling之类的,很多很多的工种。

接着grade 2等级,是20刀,一般是tomato machine operator,machine operator之类的,我后来就做的这个.
Grade 3是22刀,QC和QA,也有很多whv在做。
Grade 4有2种,24刀的 cooker(不是厨师,是大缸子里调酱的,加各种配料,也有whv在做),25刀的forklift,也就是叉车司机,必须得有叉车证,whv有得话,也是可以申请的,这个是常年差人的那种。(工资是2月底season快来的时候涨上去,在此之前还是16.5)

2.休息时间超长还付费
一共3个shift,早班6am-2pm,下午班2pm-10pm,晚班10pm-6am,需要提前15分钟来,换衣服交接班,当然与之对应走的时候,也是可以提前走的,具体看部门,有的部门甚至可以提前半个小时就走人,然后上下班都要按指纹打卡,下班前的7分钟就可以打卡,不需要等到整点。一个shift是8个小时,给满8个小时的工资,包括30分钟付费吃饭时间,以及每4个小时就休15分钟的法定付费休息时间。
nz的休息就叫smoko,不叫take a break,理论上来说无论什么部门,都可以一共休息1个小时,然而,很多部门都可以每次休息40分钟,休息三次,一共2个小时!!牛逼吗!!

我开始做的tomato outside inspection就是这样,基本做1,2个小时就休息40分钟,刚做一个多小时又休息40分钟,回去再搞一个小时,又是40分钟,再回去做一个多小时,又休40分钟,再回去搞一个小时,运气好,还可以提前半个小时下班,实在是太好混了,而且他们的机器还经常故障一两个小时,这个休息时间还经常被延长,工作的时候又故障了,就站在那里和工友闲聊就把钱赚了,简直不能再爽了,而且这个40分钟经常被我休成50分钟,也不会有人说什么,等于3个50分钟!!
tomato inside inspection和corn house(里面) 只有2个30分休息时间,休息时间是固定的,不过差不多加来回走路的时间也等于2个40分钟了,而且经常机器故障!!!
corn house外面清洁下水道(虽然清洁都是玉米水的下水道,不过也很恶心)是2个人一起做,可以内部自己协商,我们那时就是2个50分钟。还有后来的machine operator 是一个30,2个15,加上刻意延长,基本也可以休息成,40,20,20。朋友后来做的部门甚至是3个1小时休息,一共3小时卧槽????反正休息时间这点,要比一般的厂公司不要好太多,而且是实打实的上8个小时,拿8个小时工资。

3.加班福利而且工时长
因为2月底到5月底,整3个月都是season,所以经常人手不够,(这就是为什么工资这么高的原因)所以经常会提前打电话给我们,问是否愿意提前4个小时来上班,就是overtime加班。我们是晚班正常是10pm开始,所以他们经常会中午2点3点4点差不多就打电话给我们。如果当天没有摘蓝莓的话,我们肯定是愿意加班的,所以就是6点过去上班,6-10这4个小时,对于我们来说,就是加班,虽然没有额外加班费,但是工时多了嘛,等于一个shift变成了12个小时,而且这4个小时里面实际工作时间只有3个小时甚至更少,基本6点开始,到7.30休30分钟,然后到9.30就可以收手又休息30分钟,到10点开始回归正常的工作的岗位。如果4个小时中机器出了什么故障(经常),或者到了清洁时间(经常)可能相当于只上了2.5个小时班甚至更少?
并且这4个小时的加班,office是根据line的实际需求把你分配到那些地方的,你也不会因为同一个地方工作太久了觉得枯燥,所以在无数的加班中,我基本把大部分的岗位都做了一遍。我本来位置是tomato outside,但是什么peach line,pear line,corn house,tomato inside(这个很热),beetroot line,cleaner该做的全部都做了一遍,总的来说,还是挺有趣的。最轻松就是pear line,说白就是削梨,拿把小刀,再那里慢慢削,supervisor也不会管你,(他们不care人力成本这些东西,大公司就是硬气)最后轻轻松松4个小时工资就到手了。
另外如果你加班多了的话,office的人就会认识你了,只要他一差人,就会第一时间打你电话,所以一周7天,每天12个小时,也是很大可能的。我们那时候还经常34点主动打电话过去问,要不要加班,差不差人之类的,反正钱真的超级好赚,基本周周税后破1100。
另外还有一点,是会经常要求提前半个小时来开会。假设我是晚班,正常情况下,晚上10点开始,差不多9.45就要提前到,换衣服什么的,但是如果开会的话,就只需要9.30就提前过来了,这半个小时也算工资,而且也就最多开10分钟而已,带黑帽子的头头讲讲话,你在下面听着,签个字,0.5小时的钱就到手,然后9.40就又去上面食堂休息,估计休息到9.50再开始上班,最后算8.5个小时工时,钱不要太好赚了。我们那时候经常每天开会,就算不加班,一个星期都有7*8.5=59.5工时
4.牛奶无限免费供应
watties的食堂里面很大,有2层,楼上一层很少有人去(因为牛奶什么的都在第一层),很安静,我就经常跑去楼上睡觉,几个椅子一拼,设个闹钟睡45分钟,完美。楼下有一个很大的冰箱柜,里面全部装满了牛奶,无限免费供应,还有咖啡,茶,糖都是无限供应,6个微波炉好像?很多个面包机,很多人都专门跑到这来吃早餐?当然也有食物售卖,炸鸡汉堡薯条鱼薯之类的,里面的鸡翅2刀一个,真的超级好吃,是我人生中吃过所有鸡翅中最好吃的,没有之一。如果没带饭过来,还可以买一刀的薯条吃,一个不大不小的碗,虽然吃不饱,但是也可以充下饥,再加几杯牛奶下肚,也差不多了,一刀一餐,贼省钱。


5.班次时间随意选择适合2份工
前面说了三个班次,早中晚,大多人最合适的应该是选下午班,这样就早上摘四五小时蓝莓,下午2点开始做watties,一周7天每天都做,两份税后必破1500,(waiites按最低18.5算),如果watties工资高,是22,24,蓝莓又摘的快,估计一周可以税后破2000.而且时间很随意。watties的shift时间和一周几天班是你自己最开始选的,如果选的7天,那7天肯定是要去的,但是早上蓝莓酒随意了,想赚钱就去,不想赚钱就睡个懒觉到11,12点,一周去个一两次,一次5个小时,也可以税后一起拿1100刀,也很棒了。
另外就是选晚班,因为我是晚班,基本都是冲的20刀的额外补贴去的,一天20刀,一星期就是140刀,等于白赚一个房租费,还是可以的,至于早上还去不去蓝莓,就看个人咯,回去睡觉也行,偶尔一周摘一两次也行,差不多两份税后1200,1300,我当时就是这样。不过缺点是不能像上面说的那样可以无限坚持一周,毕竟晚上不睡觉,早上还摘4,5个小时蓝莓是真的很累的。不像上面的早上蓝莓下午watties,每天早睡早起,生活很规律,无限循环多少天都没问题。但如果晚班watties和早上蓝莓真的循环起来,一周7天,每天两份都去,应该很容易税后破1700把。
至于最后的一种,选早班的watties,下午蓝莓或者其他,不太靠谱。因为蓝莓很多时间中午就关门不让进了。你只能去做其他的,估计也有,像苹果厂,果园,果汁厂什么的,那就要自己慢慢去找了。
6.隐藏福利
如果你去上班,你只上了1个小时,然后位置多了,或者机器完全坏了,工作不了了,不需要这么多人了,supervise或者manager会要你下班回家,就算你只上1个小时,他也会跟你算4个小时工时,而且如果你是晚班的话,还会发额外的晚班补贴20刀。我那时就在machine operator,season快结束的时候,10点开始,上到11点,我那条线就停了,没东西产了,就回家了,但实际还是发了20*4h+20补贴=100刀,就站了那么一个小时就赚了100刀,钱不要太好赚了,果然大公司就是不一样,永远都不在意这些小钱~


下面是我的整个从找工作到结束的具体过程,太长可以不看~


我是2019年2月24左右从国内飞的奥克兰,具体日子记不清了,反正是2月底吧,当天到奥克兰后,就发了一条朋友圈,大概就是我回来了,有工作推荐吗之类的,果然朋友圈该发的还是得发,接着就有人联系我,说想去Hastings做蓝莓和watties,找的房子还差个室友一起share房间之类的,就问我去不去。hastings的蓝莓和watties2018年底就听说过了,当时12月上旬还准备去的,可惜那时候脚还没好,最后才被迫回得国。反正如今听说马上season就要来了,正好这边奥克兰刚到也没工作,就答应了,然后联系我的小伙伴告诉我,要我打watties的电话,跟她们说我已经填好了表格,直接问什么时候induction。那时,其实我连Hastings都还没到,更别说填表格了,他说这样做可以节约时间,可以到了之后再去拿表格填。然后我就打了,office的人告诉我,下个星期三induction,到时候直接带表格过去就行了。(watties office电话:06 8243 433 or 06 8731 934,如果今年没有变的话就应该还是这个)
行程决定之后,第二天亚超购置很多东西,毕竟大城市东西多,小镇有没有亚超都不一定(事实是有的),第三天中午出发的,开了一天晚上才到Hastings,由于是夏天旅游旺季,时间也太晚了,没提前定住宿,就airbnb上随便找了个房将就了一晚。第二天早上就直接去watties拿表格,去anz打印statement,复印护照,打印ird,材料准备好就去gourmet拿表格,预约他的induction,也是下个星期三,由于两边的induction重合了,还特意打电话改成了下个星期四。最后一天下来全部搞定。而且下午watties又打电话来,说induction提前到明天早上。我猜估计是急差人之类的?看的房子正好当天晚上也空了出来,直接入住,简直不能太完美了。
房子地址是1111 wall st,是一个大house,中间被隔开,两边除了门外的庭院可以互通,里面中间是隔开的,房东住右边,我们住左边,都是2层,我们这边楼上3个房间,一共四个房客。楼下就是厨房和客厅,客厅还有空调,平常房东基本不会过来左边,除了偶尔在庭院中间碰到,而且他们也什么都不管,这边暖气空调随便开,基本就是等于不与房东同住的情况,而且还不收押金,115一周也不贵,反正简直不能再完美了。而且还有猫!

第三天早上就去induction咯,这里说下,watties有两个厂,一个是310 Frederick street,基本大部分whver都是在这个厂工作,你去拿表格也是去这个厂的门卫那里拿。然后induction的位置是在另外一个厂,1400 Tomoana,当时还由于搞错位置,最后还迟到了半个小时。。induction无非就是那样,里面有个很重要的部分,就是问你想一个星期想上几天班,以及什么shift。基本所有人都选的一星期7天吧,我们选的back shift(晚班),上面说了因为有补贴,基本平均分到8小时上,就等于每小时工资加了2.5。inducation完后,通知明天晚上就上班,节奏很快,没有浪费一天的时间,大公司果然就是不一样。
然后到第二题晚上就开始上班,估计在induction后,每个人的position都是已经分配好了的,根据不同的职位,第一天刚去的时候,领不同颜色的连体服,还有不同的其他装备,围裙,手套,耳罩,套鞋,等等在左边的流水线上穿的是白色的连体服,右边的厂里面穿的就是蓝色的连体服。接着就是带你去相应的职位,我们那是是tomato outside inspection,就摘tomato上面的叶子和纸条,工作很简单,机器坏了或者后面满载了,线就会空,就可以休息一会,整个工作算是很轻松的吧,除了要一直站着以外,不过上面也说了,也不是一直站8个小时,中间三个45钟的休息时间也可以缓一缓了。一周七天每天如此,如果你工作久了,不想在这个position干了,可以申请换到其他的位置,也很简单,直接跟office的人说就可以了。
不过我们一般都是,做一个月后,申请换工资更高的position,比如QC,machine operator等等之类的,这个要看运气和时间,我那个时候天天跑office,整个office的人都认识我了,搞了2个星期才换成20工资的machine operator,也有那种一个线做久了,那个线的supervise直接提拔某个whv做22每小时的QC的事,也有本来18.5的线做的好好的,office的人突然打电话把他换成24刀每小时的cooker的事。总的来说,很看时间和运气,建议想升工资的少年天天跑office。


缺点
去年的watties是由kelly负责运营人事这一块,不知道这种说话准不准确,反正我们从入职到发工资,到每天是否短信通知你上班,到最后辞职都是Kelly来负责的,而不是由Watties的人管。可能是因为要管的人实在太多了,然后又是第一年负责,所以经常工资算错,算多的算少的都有,算多的就不说了,白嫖几个小时爽歪歪,还不用还,还有老实人诚实的去office说,自己工资发多了几个小时,然后office的人告诉他:这种事你自己心里知道就好了,不要说出来了。我也差不多一个season也就多发了一两次4个小时工资?还好,听说还有没去上班,发8个小时工资的人,羡慕死了。所以发多就不用说了,我们这里来说说,工资发少了怎么办。

上面说的,经常9.30开会,这个要签名要提前打卡,但也还是经常没算这0.5个小时,还有经常加班 4个小时忘记算了,明明应该算12个小时,算成了8个小时,还有有时候因为需求,临时到高工资的position上班,结果工资发下来还是算的最低的18.5,反正各种情况少算工资。就我实际例子出发,最开始基本每个星期都会少发钱,也就害的我每个班次的每个休息时间都要跑office去讨工资,他们office有个专门工资纠错的表格,每个人把自己算错的工资填在上面,然后他们统一更正,但是效率很低很低,上个星期的工资还没追回来,这个星期的工资单又出错了。

另外一种方式就是office的人说,要她帮你发邮件给管工资的人,专门单独跟你追回工资,前提是你的跟office的人熟,我那是就是这样,但是由于每个星期的工资都有问题,所以效率也一般,不是太高。
还一种就是自己发邮件给管工资的人,告诉她,你的名字,employee number,哪个部门,哪个shift,正确的工作时间,正确的工资,以及出错的时间和工资。这样初期我弄的还行,后来估计发邮件的人太多了,效率也慢了下来。
最后一种也是最有效的,也是我后来一直在用的。就是直接跟Kelly的在Wellington总部的人打电话发邮件。打电话解释有的人可能觉得太麻烦了,我也只打过几次,后来就都发的邮件,还是发那些,你上班的地方,哪个厂,哪个部门,就是自己的信息之类的,以及正确的错误的工资和时间。可能是总部的关系,那边的语气态度都很好,效率也很高,基本上一两天就可以追回来了。所以在整个season过程中,除了唯一的有一天我是5.30开始加班,应该是算4.5个小时的工时,他只算了我4个小时,这0.5个小时的工时,实在是时间太久了,时间也不符合常理,因为他们一般都是6点开始加班,我也不知道为什么那天要我们5.30就去加班,反正我也打了很多电话,发了很多邮件,后来觉得太浪费时间,就没追究这0.5个小时。除了这个,其余的所有钱都追回来了,算上他们多发我们的工资,其实也还是赚的,所有也就无所谓了。

有人说kelly故意跟你少算,我觉得那不至于,毕竟我的钱都追回来了,而且如果他们小气的话,工资也会这么高,福利也不会这么好了。估计是第一次处理这么大的事,毕竟是全nz最大的罐头厂。

我是从2月底开始wattie上班,上了一个月的18.5tomato outside,后来跟office说要换工资高的岗位,给我换到了20的machine operator,这个前期还慢慢训练了2个星期,每天教一点的那种,也算是比较好上手,缺点就是休息时间少,只有15,30,15。虽然有时候会休息多,不过少,优点是可以偷偷玩手机。前提是不被摄像头发现,所以你得知道所有摄像头的位置。之前的tomato就不能玩手机。然后我在这个岗位一直上到了6月初的season结束。还有因为后期line变少了,不需要这么多人了,经常去做18.5的beetroot线。基本上,一个整个season下来,大多数whv能做的岗位我都做了,算是圆满了。

ps:tomato线会一直贯穿整个season,所以tomato outside一直会有工,甚至包括public holiday,那几天上班的只有tomato outside和我们machine operator,还有少数的几个叉车司机了,2.5倍工资轻松到手。  tomato inside到后期就没工了,不过可以跟office的说,可以继续做beetroot。

beetroot line基本也是贯穿整个season,可以一直做
 
corn house 中间就没工了,部份人可以继续做其他的线,部分人就失业了咯。

peach line和pear line是34月中间一段时间,在此期间会超级大量招人,然后等line结束了,部分可以继续做其他的,部分也失业咯。


pps:就算season结束了,因为已经6月了,冬天已经到了,总的来说,整个nz的工作都已经不好找了,如果你已经提前拿到了雪场的offer或者渔场的offer那就恭喜你,可以无缝连接了,如果感觉找工作很困难,不想动,可以继续留在watties,我那是时候season结束了还在那,office的人就打电话问我,估计还要做多久,有个cookerr的位置给我,做不做,21.9好像,那时nz最低工资才17.7,而且还不是season了,21.9算是工资很高的,固定周一到周五,一个星期5天8小时,一共40小时的那种,可惜我当时已经有其他计划了,就没做,算是错过了一个大offer。

由于没做成cooker,在我走之前,我还有几天,office的人就安排我到另外一个分厂Tomoana去帮忙,具体工作时间那个厂的office的人都会提前一天跟我发消息,几点到几点,什么位置,问我想不想做,然后我再回消息,合适,我做。基本就是这样每天确定明天的工作,听着感觉不稳定的样子,不过其实也还好,也算是weekday每天都有在上班,而且经常做的还是9个小时,10个小时的shift。每天工作岗位也不一样,算了长了见识。其中有一天在做pasta sauce,往一个大的bin里面加入各种酱,都是用很大的铁铲子铲的,又重又恶心,算是整个工作中做的最脏(全身都沾的各种sauce)最累的的活,后来以至于看到pasta就想吐。。。


所以重点来了,要想一直有工,有好工,就得不停的联系office的人,每天跑office很有必要!(追工资每天跑office也是有好处的~)混熟office很有必要!
watties就结束了,还有很多细节没说,如果你去上了你自然就会知道,没去的话讲了感觉也没什么用,所以下面来说蓝莓,也就是gourmet。


gourmet
申请入职最开始已经说了,直接讲重点
1.工资
工资是最低16.5,后来2019年4月1号涨到了17.7。看似低,实际还行,具体算法是,按你每小时摘的kg乘以你摘的种类的价格=你拿的钱,如果这个钱不够每小时16.5,就跟你补到每小时16.5,如果超出了,那个钱就是你实际能拿到的钱(税前)。

举个例子,你今天花了5个小时摘了10kg的A品种果子(极其慢的速度了),这个果子的报价是4刀per kg,所以等于你只摘了10kg*4=40刀,而5个小时的最低工资应该是5*16.5=82.5刀,公司就会补你这82.5-40=42.5刀,所以你最后还是会发5小时的最低工资82.5刀。如果你5小时摘了30kg(比较快),最后你会拿到30kg*4=120刀,这个钱已经超出了最低的82.5刀,所以你到手的钱就是你实际摘的钱120刀。清楚了吗!所以摘的多赚的多,摘的少,也还有最低工资的保证,算是新西兰很好的蓝莓的厂了。(虽然我也经常骂它)

2.休息时间
由于是pick,实际是没有休息时间的,你上5个小时班就在摘5个小时,不停的摘5个小时,中间你也可以自己休息几分钟,没人管你,但是相应的速度就会慢下来。但是这里就有福利,公司会在你每上4个小时还是5小时忘了,补你0.25个小时的break time,就是多发你0.25个小时的工资,就是你实际发工资的工时要比你上的工时要多,虽然补的少,但也可以积少成多咯。毕竟在绝大多数公司都是你上8.5个小时,只发你8个小时工资情况下(因为半个小时吃饭时间不算,强行把工时拖长,贼傻逼)。这种你上4个小时,跟你算4.25实际工时,已经很棒了。


3.bonus
基本每个星期都有bonus,就是你摘的多,奖励就多,比如这你个星期摘了100kg,就再额外奖你100刀,你摘了200刀,就额外奖你200刀,摘300刀额外奖300刀,当然只有一次奖励。如果你天天都去的话,每天7,8个小时,就算摘的慢,200刀奖励也是妥妥的,如果你是每天4,5个小时蓝莓,其余时间做watties,100刀奖励也可以拿的到。反正最后工资算下来,基本可以算到每小时税后21,22.也算是很高的了。

 
除了上面的这种,有时还有额外的bonus,就是当天摘30kg ,就多发30刀,摘50kg就多发50刀,而且可以与上面的奖励重复领,可以说是相当棒了。不过这个很少有,详情要提前关注FB.
最后一种就是,新picker必备,在去填申请gourmet之前,如果你是新人,一定要找到1个或者2个老picker,就是3个一队的那种,可以是一老二新,也可以是二老一新,就是新picker填表的时候要填推荐人,就要填上老picker的名字,然后你们3个就是一个队了,只要你们在新picker上班的第一个星期,三个人一共摘200刀,就可以额外三个人平分200刀的补贴,相当于每人拿66.6,也还行,而且可以与上面的bonus重复。每个人的摘的量没有需求,只要总共一个星期摘了200kg就行。相当于一种公司招人的推广机制吧,反正如果老picker,一直有人填他的名字,自己又每天都去摘,甚至都不要新picker摘,老picker一个星期摘200kg应该是轻轻松松的吧,基本每个星期都可以拿66.6刀的补贴。反正各种补贴算下来,就算只做蓝莓的话,工资也是很观的,而且人只会越摘越快嘛,钱就赚越多咯。
4.蓝莓无限供应
这个就不用说了吧。所有picker都知道,最顶上的最甜最大的果子永远都是被我们自己吃了,一手一大把,直接塞口里,美滋滋,如果不考虑速度快慢的就拿个最低工资的话,可以一直吃一直吃~而且你如果带包进去的话,还可以装很多蓝莓回去吃,只要的摘的量足够你交差就行,因为摘的太慢是会被降带的。

5.摘蓝莓不伤身
nz有很多水果,相应的就有很多picker,什么摘樱桃,要爬梯子,搬梯子,女生难进,亚种人难进,而且picker很难申请,什么摘草莓,要弯腰,超级费腰,摘完一天,浑身都废了的那种,什么摘树莓,有各种刺,什么摘苹果,太重了,伤身体,一般人做不来。摘kiwi看天气,可能赚的多,但时间与wattiea和蓝莓重合,肯定没这边赚的多。而且还可能因为收成不好,赚的少,2019年就收成很差。摘葡萄?这个还真不知道,不做评价。总之相比绝大多数水果而言,蓝莓算是轻松好上手的,还不伤身。

 
优点说完了就来说说上班时间:

上班时间是得提前一天关注FB,它会推送明天的开工时间,基本就是明天6.30开工,哪些颜色的带子可以过来摘,这个星期的bonus还在继续中,大家请加油拿bonus之类的。每个星期结束前,会推送下个星期的bonus是什么赛制。然后每天摘的品种的价格是提前一个星期贴在office的门口,每个品种多少钱一kg,便宜的3刀,贵的4点几刀,相应的贵的就比较难摘,便宜的就很好摘。具体你每天分配的位置,品种,也都是随机分配的,运气好,分的地方好,爆果了,就摘的贼舒服,一撸撸一大串。像我这种完全就是过去摸鱼的,也可以摘成20多刀每小时的。运气不好,就随便摘摘吃吃,就当混工时了咯,反正最低工资各种加补贴可还行。

然后就是带子,如果速度一直太慢的话,公司每天都要补钱给你,如果一直这样,公司就给你降带的,就是变成另外一种颜色的带子,由于具体什么颜色忘了,我这里就直接说成降带了。降带后,需要公司安排人手重新训练你后,才能升回来,而且不是每天都会安排训练的人,所以被降带后,picker就会有上班限制,可能明天所有人都能7点下班,除了被降带的人。其实平时还好,降了很快就升回来了。如果到了4月底就危险了,因为已经快season结束了,一般就不需要速度慢的人来上班了,所以就等于变相fire了。
我那是时候就是这样,我是时而快时而慢的样子,快的时候也能超过最低工资,不过一般都是左右徘徊,然而偏偏最后一段时间,4月底已经快入冬了,早上实在太冷了,我就摘的特别慢,还经常摸下鱼,玩下手机,导致那个星期后就被降带了,然后下个星期一我再去pick的时候通知我已经被降带了,然后告知由于已经是season末了,不需要这个降带的人来上班,也不会安排重新训练升带了,我还专门去office去求情,还跟他们manager发邮件,来来回回发了好多封,最后都没搞成,那个时候我延签就差2个星期,差点没急死我。

然后整个蓝莓season应该是11月可以开始摘了,估计前期工时不长,2018-2019年,是中间12月底1月初的时候,公司发FB说最近果不好,休息一段时间,2月再开始摘,然后可以一直摘到5月左右,也是具体看年份,2019年那个时候,4月底就说马上要结束了,结果一直摘到了6月初还没完。。。算是很长的一个season了。

缺点
时间太随意了,上班时间不固定。上面说了,每天pick start的时间都是提前一天FB推送的,但这个是可能根据天气变动的,比如今天晚上10点推送明天7点开始,结果明天早上6点推送推迟到8点,然后快到八点了又说推迟到10点,甚至直接说取消今天pick的,这种事经常发生,早点发都还好说,我记得有一天应该是7点上班,结果我6.49出的门,出门前看了一下今天6点的最新推送的,还是显示7点开始,嗯,很好,出发,结果我车开到地了发现门关着,一查FB,6.50又发了一个新的推送,今天pick取消。。。。妈蛋。


除了经常临时退后pick start时间,还有经常提前关门,最开始FB上还没明说,只说中午会关门,又没有说中午几点,结果我晚班早上下班回家睡了三个小时再去摘,一去已经关门,然而才刚到11点,你说你关门,你就直接发几点关嘛,说个中午关门,鬼知道中午是几点,可能后面骂的人太多了,season快结束的时候,才明确说,明天几点关门。另外FB gourmet的推送下面基本一大半都是骂声,笑死我了。
由于上面这些原因,我经常三过gourmet而不入,发朋友圈都吐槽了无数回了。不过总的对比优点而言,也还行,毕竟大公司,也还有一些小缺点经常被FB的人骂,比如蓝莓每kg降价,其实也还好,总的来说,价格保持在平均水平线,或者上面一点,毕竟老板是印度人,你就不用指望特别好了。
另外基本整个season,gourmet都在不停的招人。甚至5月都在招人,你敢信??所以很好进,也很好延签,就算你每个星期只摘一次蓝莓,一次摘2-3个小时,只要你每个星期都有payslip,集满12张也能延签,反正我就是这样。最后一点,连续2个星期不去摘的话,会被取消picker的资格。


以上就是所有watties和gourmet的信息。
再附加一些其他的,我那是4月底还是5月初,具体时间忘了,因为摘的太慢了,而被降带了,就等于变相被炒了。然而我还差3张payslip,所以跑了很多家苹果pack厂,结果时间都不符合。最后是FB上找的一个人,算是工头的那种,他拉我到一家小果园做的苹果包装,很简陋的环境,他差人就提前跟我打电话,差不多一个星期上一俩次班的那种。其中还有pick 苹果,然而那天我早上下班回家实在太累了没有去。所幸正好靠的这个小作坊的pack把我最后的三张payslip集齐了。
后来苹果完了,他又打电话给我,问我去不去果汁厂帮忙,就做了很多天的果汁厂,算是赚外快吧,而且果汁厂工资也不低,19,20不等,不过工作环境是冷藏库,有点冷,差外快的朋友可以去打电话问问,地点是407 williams st,homegrown juice company ltd. 至于工头的电话,就不公布了,具体可以在FB上找搜hastings apple pack,很多类似的工头,我就是一个个发消息问的。反正最后在Hastings我都做到了“人在床上睡,砖从天上来”的境界,真是牛逼死我了。

另外Hastings是有亚超的,一个是Asian grocery,就在Hastings的市中心,东西还行,我一般去的就是这个。另外一个是在Napier那边,叫洪客隆?我感觉东西不太全,而且太远了,去了一次就再也没去过了。


最后的ps:如果不想做watties和gourmet,也可以去做apple pack,Hastings有很多厂,直接谷歌地图搜 apple pack就行了,每个厂的时间不一样,我当时还整理了一份每家工厂的每个shift的时间,可惜年代太久远了,记不住了,有车的朋友,还没工作前,可以一家一家去问,选最合适的。
Hastings镇中间还有pick nz hawkes bay的office,免费帮人介绍工作,找工作的可以去看看。
以上就所有信息,由于过了一年了,可能漏了一些细节,不过也无所谓,终于赶在season前弄出来了。前人植树,后人乘凉。真是太羡慕你们有我这样的朋友了,哎,我们下期再见。

(最近应该会把2年所有没写的东西全部补一遍,欠下的总归事要还的,苦悲脸.jpg)

奥克兰现金工和长期工的真实打工经历

完虐小冻 posted the article • 0 comments • 193 views • 2020-03-27 17:05 • added this tag no more than 24h

一直有人询问这个,所以还是写下来最好,先说现金工,关于这个也是问的最多的,什么哪里有现金工,怎么找,你都做了哪些,多少钱一小时,同样的问题已经被无数次了。这里一个一个全部说一遍。




现金工说白了就是黑工,有短期的,就是那种临时一天或几天的,其中一天的临时居多。长期的就是什么木工,水工,油漆工(部分打税)和厂工(正规公司,必打税)这种。




时间背景是2018年下半年,当时nz最低法定16.5,扣完税估计到手14







1.现金都给得多少钱一小时?

我做的大多数是18,一次17是搬家具,一次16.5是折纸盒,其余都是20,22,25,甚至30不等







2.这些现金工都能做多久?

大多数都是一天,少数几天,然后一天下来,你可以主动跟公司说,下次有活直接找你,当然公司也愿意这样,毕竟他们找人也麻烦,所以很多公司或者工头,都是后面差活直接联系我







3.怎么找这些现金工

要学会用天维网,我差不多一半的现金工都是在这里找的,这里有一个误区,天维网里面有一个专门的找工作区域,其实这里的资讯很少,所以要想找工,得去天维论坛,然后从最新的发布,一个个往下看。最好是下个天维网的app,算是现金工必备的一个app,很方便。




一般都是别人公司提前几天就在天维论坛上发了,类似:几月几号星期几差卸货一名,工资18一小时,联系人AA,电话123456。无论形式是怎么样的,工作日子肯定是有的,你看自己那天合不合适,合适就联系他,这种都是早联系早拿到,如果别人早上发的,你晚上才联系,那很有可能已经找到人了。所以要多刷天维论坛,从最新开始刷,一直刷到前两三天的,凡是还挂在上面的,都可以发个短信问一问。




另外长时间找工总结出的经验,一般星期六星期日会有大量临时现金工发布,记得及时check,好的工资高一般很快就被抢走了,有的活不仅工资高,还包饭。




而且上面说的,就算别人回你短信已经找到人了,或者页面显示已经找到人了,也没事,你还是可以再跟别人发一条短消息,说我叫什么,自己一直有空,差人可以直接联系我之类的。这样下次别人一有活,又找不到人,就直接短信你了。





除了天维论坛以外,其他信息来源还有微信小组群,多加群!!!多看群很有必要!!!




还有就是房东介绍,朋友介绍,我就经常多的活,或者当天觉得太累了,不想做要睡觉,就把活share给朋友,或者发到群里。




最后就是FB搜关键词,奥克兰地区太大了,就没用过了,小地方这个方法很好用。







4.我做过哪些现金工?

卸柜,装柜,舞台布置,场地布置,油漆,仓库整理,家具搬运,折纸盒等等










下面我是做过的现金工一些详细描述:




其中一家卖厨房用具的公司,我后面已经混成常客了,18刀一小时,他们那边人也特好,有时中午他们点外卖还帮我点一份,free的那种,吃饭时间也算钱。最开始是微信群里看到的信息,接的是家具搬运的活,后来他们搬新的公司地址,又叫我去做仓库整理,整理完了又帮忙刷油漆,他们整个后面厂的油漆全是我一个人刷的,包括顶梁也是,踩特别高的梯子上去,刷的贼小心的那种。再后来油漆也刷完了,问我有没有兴趣学木工,可以教我,说木工后面都是25刀+一个小时。可惜那时我已经决定南下了,就没去做成。







还有一家公司是卖nz本土面膜的,也是微信群里看到的,最开始第一次做,是装柜,18刀一小时,装完后,他们office的人就问我,会在Auckland呆多久,说以后有活还可以找我。




还有一家是纸杯类进口贸易的公司,房东给的资讯,是固定一个月就去卸柜的那种,大柜140刀一个,卸7个小时,但实际后面做熟了,5个小时就做完了,折算下来也是28刀一小时,卸小柜100刀一个,说是要做5个小时,我实际做下来,3个小时就可以搞定,折算33.3刀一小时。箱子里面货物都是纸杯和纸质食品包装盒,不算太重。




再就是家具搬运公司,天维论坛上面找到的,是做仿品家具布置的,就是那些想把房子卖掉的人,因为房子太空了,不好卖,就租这些仿制家具来装修房子,看起来让房子觉得更美观?更温馨??等卖出去了,公司再把这些仿制家具收回来。我就是帮忙搬这些家具的人,当然不止我一个,幸好不是真的家具,不然得累死。





还有舞台布置,是一个什么什么很有名的dj过来,演唱会的那种?就是那种体育厅内,搭建舞台,LED屏的组装,搭建灯光,接线什么的,唱完后,又拆舞台,下灯光那些,一共忙了2天,赚了三四百刀







除了大型的还有小型场地布置,就是我上面说的那个面膜公司的年会,他们把我介绍给场地公司,要我帮忙弄舞台,搭建LED屏,5个小时的活,给了150刀现金,折合下来30刀每小时





折纸盒子,一家东区卖杂货的公司,这个也是天维论坛看到的,16.5刀小时,很轻松,不过觉得给的太低了,后面他又找我去,我都退掉了。




油漆,这个也是天维看到的,给的25刀一小时,是门墙的粉刷,可惜他要求太高了,没达到要求,就是不能由一点瑕疵的那种,然后他的地上又全是那种灰,经常一不小心就把灰刷进去了,然后就得抠掉重刷,还不能单独只刷这一条,不然深浅不一样,得把整个门得又刷一遍,反正最后工头(白人)不满意我们的进度,就只上了4个小时,给了100刀现金走人了。如果把握好的话,应该是可以长期做的,25刀现金的长期卧槽,做的话应该可以赚疯。。(把我一双鞋和一条裤子都刷废了)




我大概就记得这么多了,可能有遗漏的,毕竟已经一年多了,做这些的时候还是18年下旬那会。反正由于经常做,最后已经到了“人在床上睡,砖从天上来”的境界,由于我的第一份正业是 alpha鱼油厂的通宵班,所以这些现金工都是,第二天早上6.30下班后,直接车开到位置,然后在车里睡2个小时起床再去做的,做四五个小时,有时甚至七八个小时,下午四五点再回去,回去路上赶上下班高峰期,又是奥克兰,肯定堵车,远的话得堵一个小时,最后到家五六点再赶紧吃饭睡觉,再睡三四个小时,到晚上9.15起来继续上通宵班,所以会很累。一般情况下,一个星期我也就接三次左右的活,保证一个星期总收入1200刀左右就行了,那个时候手机里面每天都是各种问我要不要去帮忙,或者我主动发别人差不差的人的短信,各种杂七杂八的活都做了一遍,虽然累,但是钱多,也算是尝试了很多新鲜玩意,总的来说,还是有趣的。











以上就短期现金工,接着就说说,长期工




一种是做木工水工管道工电工这种,先做小工,跟着人学,慢慢做成中工,大工对于whv来说基本不可能,毕竟时间太短了。小工的工资有的给现金,有的是打税,工资具体有多的也有少的,得看机遇,因为我没实际做过,所以资讯都是来自身边做过的朋友,还有那些发短信给我工头。




刚开始做的就是小工(我不知道前面还有没有学徒这一级别),就我听到的工资而言,有给13,14的,也有给18,20的,而且都是现金,所以很看机遇。中工后面都是25+,大工都是30+差不多,当然每个工头待遇会不一样,这种基本都是长期有活,奥克兰各个工地到处跑的那种,所以得有车,而且得自备工具,工时基本都是40,50+,是可以作为主业的那种,因为我当时已经有主业,所以也完全没考虑过。





另外一种就是去做奥克兰的厂工,下面奥克兰很有名的,whv集中的,常年招人的几个厂:


Alpha(又称鱼油厂,保健品厂):新厂地址16-18 Bowden Road,Mount Wellington,Auckland


老厂地址48 Crooks Road,East Tamaki,Auckland

一星期上6天,每天8小时,有早中晚三个班次,两周发一次工资,一般投简历都是去新厂投,自己投很难进,因为他们招人的厂长与Auckland的几个长期绑定住宿的房东有合作,所以会优先从房东给的人里面招,我当时就是这么进的。


GMP(与Alpha公司性质一样):12 Averton Place,East Tamaki,Auckland

6天,每天8小时。与绑宿的房东有合作,自己难进





温室:具体地点不知,一星期6天,每天8,9个小时,2个小时发一次工资,基本发一次都是1600,1700的,旺季可能到1800,可以延签。但是也是与绑定住宿的房东有合作。





洋葱厂:431C Glenbrock Rd,Kingseat 2679

奥克兰下面一点的地方,负责招人的也是华人,可以直接微信联系,属于每天12小时,一星期6天,工时70+的那种,不过听说里面工作环境尘埃很大,要带面罩,体力活,而且给的是最低工资,所以就没去。





基本上大多数的厂都是与绑宿的房东有合作,房东以提供工作为由招房客并绑定住宿3个月,得到三个月稳定房租收入然后工厂也保证了源源不断的稳定三个月劳动力,基本就是双赢。至于房客,实在没工作,或者冬季难找工作的情况下可以尝试被绑定一下,也挺适用于刚到NZ的小白,什么都不会,只要被绑定,工作住宿什么都解决了,至于上班的交通工具,房东基本会把你安排到跟你同一般的班次工友的房子里,你只要每周给工友油费好了,算是一步到位的那种。





我那是就是7月冬季,做的kiwi orchard的农活,完全靠天气吃饭,工时极其不稳定,一个星期可能就上20个小时左右,所以才联系的那个房东,要他帮我提供工作,而我就被绑定三个月,然后我就进了Alpha,而实际我一共做了4个月,毕竟太稳定了,而且我上的晚班,工资是17.5+2=19.5+8%holiday pay,固定一周6天,一周稳定税后840刀,算是NZ whv里面高收入人群?而且我当时还经常白天找外快,就是上面介绍的现金工,基本能达到一星税后1200左右,可以说超级棒了,所以一直没换。





然后说说绑定的住宿,我进的那家是叫大树,马来西亚华人,他们都叫自己大马人,最开始听到还会很奇怪,如果以后听什么大马人,那说话者肯定是马来西亚人了。他在99%的情况下都还行,会提供其他的帮助,你刚到nz,直接去住他那里的话,估计还会去接你机,平时有些临时的工作资讯也会告诉你,就像我说的,在最后我要离开时,我一直都觉得他还是挺不错的。最后一下直接改变整个印象是因为钱,当然也明显的,只有利益冲突了,人才会变脸。

我那时11月底,临时被Alpha  fire了,就是我早上刚下班回家睡觉,睡到一半,就接到电话,说你以后不用来上班了。后来朋友帮我问了其他人才知道,说是我那一批药有问题,但是很明显我是背锅了,因为虽然我们是早上6.30下班,但实际6点就已经交接班了,一般刚来的人在交接班时都会检查药是不是对的,如果有问题,就会出来找我们,要我们弄好了再下班。但是那天没有人找我,我也就6.30准时下班,然后听说时7点多,那个人(老员工)才发现药有问题,最后那一批药得全部重新重做,那个人就上报office,说是我的原因,这不是狗屁吗,真是我的问题,交接班时你在干什么,都上了一个多小时才发现,然后就把锅扔给我?反正这不是第一次这样了,算是第二次被扔锅了,所以我就直接被fire了。

 不过正好我也拿到了樱桃的pick offer,就打算南下去摘樱桃算了,所以就跟房东大树说,我被临时fire了,所以我准备走了,估计过2,3天就走,剩余的房租,和押金能不能退给我。按照之前的人设,他给我印象,我以为会退的,然后重点来了!!!!他居然跟我扯,你没有提前一周通知,我不能及时找到下个替代的你的人,我会损失钱,什么那个剩余的钱不能退给你???这他妈不是睁着眼睛说瞎话吗??听不懂我被临时fire吗,这种我跟你提前一周通知,我过几天会被fire???还有什么不能及时找到人替代我的床位??当时本来就不是旺季,一个房子一半的床位都是空的,就算我提前通知你了,你就能突然能把整个房子一下弄满了??这说的是他妈人话吗??而且这种不可控因素,我在刚搬来时就讲清楚了,他当时还表示会理解。真到了这个时候,就翻脸不认人,只认钱了???

反正当时就是我要走了,他不退钱我,只退了绑定工作的押金,这个其实应该在我上完3个月后就应该退给我的,然后最后我都走了,也懒的理他了,才退了部分钱给我,搞的我还说了谢谢,谢谢他居然没全吞,而退了部分的钱??反正就是最后那一下,把我对他的印象全部改了,典型的平时对你好,你也觉得他很好,最后一涉及钱就立马翻脸的那种。(在这之前,我还经常拉朋友进来,到他这里住,还在群里跟他发工作信息,真是日了狗。)

上面说的大多数的长期工,都可以在那里住三个月,他提供工作给你,就是他直接联系公司的HR,然后把面试的时间告诉你,你去面试了等着上工就完了,算是一种很快的工作住宿一步到位的方法,只要避免跟他直接的利益冲突就行了,就是我上面说的房租,押金的事。




在其余的那些餐馆,咖啡店,快餐店,我没做过,就不说了,无非就是一家一家投简历呗,不过这里有个点,大多数的店好像不招whv,也就是他会问你工作签证有多长,你说只有一年效期,而且每个工作最长只能做半年的话,很大可能不会招你,奥克兰那边的kfc,Mcdonalds,也不会招whv,你去网投,只要你选的是你的签证是whv,第一关的基本筛选都过不了。所以,大多数whv在奥克兰做长时间的话,基本都做的厂工。







ps:我当时有朋友在奥克兰做的搬家公司的现金工,好像是20刀一小时,就是类似那种接业务的那种,接一单,然后开车去别人家里,把家具行李搬到车上,然后再开车去新家,然后再搬下来,整个过程大部分时间都在车上,因为奥克兰嘛,堵车一堵1个小时太正常了,就等于开开车就把钱赚了,很是轻松。这是他告诉我的,我还挺想做的,可惜当时不缺人。




pps:除了大树这个房东,还有一个好像是叫army?不太记得了,算是奥克兰的绑定住宿提供工作的两个房东的巨头?都是手下有很多房子,跟很多公司都有合作的那种。但是,大树大部分情况下都还好,而army就是不行了,传言她的家里大厅都有摄像头,她经常监控那些房客,反正之前群里经常有人抱怨,所以最好不要去army家住。




ppps:关于木工水工电工这种,小工的工资跨度很大,有看过做12刀一小时现金的,也有看过一来就做20刀一小时现金的,我觉得很是靠运气,这种工作大多就是靠天维论坛拿到资讯。




pppps:我那时还找到一中国人经营的家鱼薯店,给我开12刀一小时现金,一天做5小时,真是搞笑,最开始我居然还答应了,后来一想,12刀一小时实在是太傻逼了,就没去,希望这样傻逼店子都倒闭,我应该去录音去举报一手的。奉劝大家千万别做这么低的现金工,不要助涨他们的嚣张气氛,谢谢。








好了,今天的介绍到此为止,我们下期再见~ view all
一直有人询问这个,所以还是写下来最好,先说现金工,关于这个也是问的最多的,什么哪里有现金工,怎么找,你都做了哪些,多少钱一小时,同样的问题已经被无数次了。这里一个一个全部说一遍。




现金工说白了就是黑工,有短期的,就是那种临时一天或几天的,其中一天的临时居多。长期的就是什么木工,水工,油漆工(部分打税)和厂工(正规公司,必打税)这种。




时间背景是2018年下半年,当时nz最低法定16.5,扣完税估计到手14







1.现金都给得多少钱一小时?

我做的大多数是18,一次17是搬家具,一次16.5是折纸盒,其余都是20,22,25,甚至30不等







2.这些现金工都能做多久?

大多数都是一天,少数几天,然后一天下来,你可以主动跟公司说,下次有活直接找你,当然公司也愿意这样,毕竟他们找人也麻烦,所以很多公司或者工头,都是后面差活直接联系我







3.怎么找这些现金工

要学会用天维网,我差不多一半的现金工都是在这里找的,这里有一个误区,天维网里面有一个专门的找工作区域,其实这里的资讯很少,所以要想找工,得去天维论坛,然后从最新的发布,一个个往下看。最好是下个天维网的app,算是现金工必备的一个app,很方便。




一般都是别人公司提前几天就在天维论坛上发了,类似:几月几号星期几差卸货一名,工资18一小时,联系人AA,电话123456。无论形式是怎么样的,工作日子肯定是有的,你看自己那天合不合适,合适就联系他,这种都是早联系早拿到,如果别人早上发的,你晚上才联系,那很有可能已经找到人了。所以要多刷天维论坛,从最新开始刷,一直刷到前两三天的,凡是还挂在上面的,都可以发个短信问一问。




另外长时间找工总结出的经验,一般星期六星期日会有大量临时现金工发布,记得及时check,好的工资高一般很快就被抢走了,有的活不仅工资高,还包饭。




而且上面说的,就算别人回你短信已经找到人了,或者页面显示已经找到人了,也没事,你还是可以再跟别人发一条短消息,说我叫什么,自己一直有空,差人可以直接联系我之类的。这样下次别人一有活,又找不到人,就直接短信你了。





除了天维论坛以外,其他信息来源还有微信小组群,多加群!!!多看群很有必要!!!




还有就是房东介绍,朋友介绍,我就经常多的活,或者当天觉得太累了,不想做要睡觉,就把活share给朋友,或者发到群里。




最后就是FB搜关键词,奥克兰地区太大了,就没用过了,小地方这个方法很好用。







4.我做过哪些现金工?

卸柜,装柜,舞台布置,场地布置,油漆,仓库整理,家具搬运,折纸盒等等










下面我是做过的现金工一些详细描述:




其中一家卖厨房用具的公司,我后面已经混成常客了,18刀一小时,他们那边人也特好,有时中午他们点外卖还帮我点一份,free的那种,吃饭时间也算钱。最开始是微信群里看到的信息,接的是家具搬运的活,后来他们搬新的公司地址,又叫我去做仓库整理,整理完了又帮忙刷油漆,他们整个后面厂的油漆全是我一个人刷的,包括顶梁也是,踩特别高的梯子上去,刷的贼小心的那种。再后来油漆也刷完了,问我有没有兴趣学木工,可以教我,说木工后面都是25刀+一个小时。可惜那时我已经决定南下了,就没去做成。







还有一家公司是卖nz本土面膜的,也是微信群里看到的,最开始第一次做,是装柜,18刀一小时,装完后,他们office的人就问我,会在Auckland呆多久,说以后有活还可以找我。




还有一家是纸杯类进口贸易的公司,房东给的资讯,是固定一个月就去卸柜的那种,大柜140刀一个,卸7个小时,但实际后面做熟了,5个小时就做完了,折算下来也是28刀一小时,卸小柜100刀一个,说是要做5个小时,我实际做下来,3个小时就可以搞定,折算33.3刀一小时。箱子里面货物都是纸杯和纸质食品包装盒,不算太重。




再就是家具搬运公司,天维论坛上面找到的,是做仿品家具布置的,就是那些想把房子卖掉的人,因为房子太空了,不好卖,就租这些仿制家具来装修房子,看起来让房子觉得更美观?更温馨??等卖出去了,公司再把这些仿制家具收回来。我就是帮忙搬这些家具的人,当然不止我一个,幸好不是真的家具,不然得累死。





还有舞台布置,是一个什么什么很有名的dj过来,演唱会的那种?就是那种体育厅内,搭建舞台,LED屏的组装,搭建灯光,接线什么的,唱完后,又拆舞台,下灯光那些,一共忙了2天,赚了三四百刀







除了大型的还有小型场地布置,就是我上面说的那个面膜公司的年会,他们把我介绍给场地公司,要我帮忙弄舞台,搭建LED屏,5个小时的活,给了150刀现金,折合下来30刀每小时





折纸盒子,一家东区卖杂货的公司,这个也是天维论坛看到的,16.5刀小时,很轻松,不过觉得给的太低了,后面他又找我去,我都退掉了。




油漆,这个也是天维看到的,给的25刀一小时,是门墙的粉刷,可惜他要求太高了,没达到要求,就是不能由一点瑕疵的那种,然后他的地上又全是那种灰,经常一不小心就把灰刷进去了,然后就得抠掉重刷,还不能单独只刷这一条,不然深浅不一样,得把整个门得又刷一遍,反正最后工头(白人)不满意我们的进度,就只上了4个小时,给了100刀现金走人了。如果把握好的话,应该是可以长期做的,25刀现金的长期卧槽,做的话应该可以赚疯。。(把我一双鞋和一条裤子都刷废了)




我大概就记得这么多了,可能有遗漏的,毕竟已经一年多了,做这些的时候还是18年下旬那会。反正由于经常做,最后已经到了“人在床上睡,砖从天上来”的境界,由于我的第一份正业是 alpha鱼油厂的通宵班,所以这些现金工都是,第二天早上6.30下班后,直接车开到位置,然后在车里睡2个小时起床再去做的,做四五个小时,有时甚至七八个小时,下午四五点再回去,回去路上赶上下班高峰期,又是奥克兰,肯定堵车,远的话得堵一个小时,最后到家五六点再赶紧吃饭睡觉,再睡三四个小时,到晚上9.15起来继续上通宵班,所以会很累。一般情况下,一个星期我也就接三次左右的活,保证一个星期总收入1200刀左右就行了,那个时候手机里面每天都是各种问我要不要去帮忙,或者我主动发别人差不差的人的短信,各种杂七杂八的活都做了一遍,虽然累,但是钱多,也算是尝试了很多新鲜玩意,总的来说,还是有趣的。











以上就短期现金工,接着就说说,长期工




一种是做木工水工管道工电工这种,先做小工,跟着人学,慢慢做成中工,大工对于whv来说基本不可能,毕竟时间太短了。小工的工资有的给现金,有的是打税,工资具体有多的也有少的,得看机遇,因为我没实际做过,所以资讯都是来自身边做过的朋友,还有那些发短信给我工头。




刚开始做的就是小工(我不知道前面还有没有学徒这一级别),就我听到的工资而言,有给13,14的,也有给18,20的,而且都是现金,所以很看机遇。中工后面都是25+,大工都是30+差不多,当然每个工头待遇会不一样,这种基本都是长期有活,奥克兰各个工地到处跑的那种,所以得有车,而且得自备工具,工时基本都是40,50+,是可以作为主业的那种,因为我当时已经有主业,所以也完全没考虑过。





另外一种就是去做奥克兰的厂工,下面奥克兰很有名的,whv集中的,常年招人的几个厂:


Alpha(又称鱼油厂,保健品厂):新厂地址16-18 Bowden Road,Mount Wellington,Auckland


老厂地址48 Crooks Road,East Tamaki,Auckland

一星期上6天,每天8小时,有早中晚三个班次,两周发一次工资,一般投简历都是去新厂投,自己投很难进,因为他们招人的厂长与Auckland的几个长期绑定住宿的房东有合作,所以会优先从房东给的人里面招,我当时就是这么进的。


GMP(与Alpha公司性质一样):12 Averton Place,East Tamaki,Auckland

6天,每天8小时。与绑宿的房东有合作,自己难进





温室:具体地点不知,一星期6天,每天8,9个小时,2个小时发一次工资,基本发一次都是1600,1700的,旺季可能到1800,可以延签。但是也是与绑定住宿的房东有合作。





洋葱厂:431C Glenbrock Rd,Kingseat 2679

奥克兰下面一点的地方,负责招人的也是华人,可以直接微信联系,属于每天12小时,一星期6天,工时70+的那种,不过听说里面工作环境尘埃很大,要带面罩,体力活,而且给的是最低工资,所以就没去。





基本上大多数的厂都是与绑宿的房东有合作,房东以提供工作为由招房客并绑定住宿3个月,得到三个月稳定房租收入然后工厂也保证了源源不断的稳定三个月劳动力,基本就是双赢。至于房客,实在没工作,或者冬季难找工作的情况下可以尝试被绑定一下,也挺适用于刚到NZ的小白,什么都不会,只要被绑定,工作住宿什么都解决了,至于上班的交通工具,房东基本会把你安排到跟你同一般的班次工友的房子里,你只要每周给工友油费好了,算是一步到位的那种。

然后说说绑定的住宿,我进的那家是叫大树,马来西亚华人,他们都叫自己大马人,最开始听到还会很奇怪,如果以后听什么大马人,那说话者肯定是马来西亚人了。他在99%的情况下都还行,会提供其他的帮助,你刚到nz,直接去住他那里的话,估计还会去接你机,平时有些临时的工作资讯也会告诉你,就像我说的,在最后我要离开时,我一直都觉得他还是挺不错的。最后一下直接改变整个印象是因为钱,当然也明显的,只有利益冲突了,人才会变脸。

我那时11月底,临时被Alpha  fire了,就是我早上刚下班回家睡觉,睡到一半,就接到电话,说你以后不用来上班了。后来朋友帮我问了其他人才知道,说是我那一批药有问题,但是很明显我是背锅了,因为虽然我们是早上6.30下班,但实际6点就已经交接班了,一般刚来的人在交接班时都会检查药是不是对的,如果有问题,就会出来找我们,要我们弄好了再下班。但是那天没有人找我,我也就6.30准时下班,然后听说时7点多,那个人(老员工)才发现药有问题,最后那一批药得全部重新重做,那个人就上报office,说是我的原因,这不是狗屁吗,真是我的问题,交接班时你在干什么,都上了一个多小时才发现,然后就把锅扔给我?反正这不是第一次这样了,算是第二次被扔锅了,所以我就直接被fire了。

反正当时就是我要走了,他不退钱我,只退了绑定工作的押金,这个其实应该在我上完3个月后就应该退给我的,然后最后我都走了,也懒的理他了,才退了部分钱给我,搞的我还说了谢谢,谢谢他居然没全吞,而退了部分的钱??反正就是最后那一下,把我对他的印象全部改了,典型的平时对你好,你也觉得他很好,最后一涉及钱就立马翻脸的那种。(在这之前,我还经常拉朋友进来,到他这里住,还在群里跟他发工作信息,真是日了狗。)
