Anyone embarking on moving to WA be very prepared to be patient when dealing with all the red tape it has to offer regarding just about everything. I used to think WA stands for Western Australia Then I was told it stands for Wait A while Then I was told it stands for Wallet Aware I then decided it stood for What Arseholes But now I know when dealing with the people who sort things out in this state.....WA does not stand for anything...... they just missed the NKERS off at the end......!! GOOD LUCK Damon

Plenty of jobs around. A couple of people I know have jobs in Brumbys and Bakers Delight. You still need to have brains to sell bread and scones ) The ladies I know are very intelligent girls.

Once you know the correct procedures it isn't so bad, it's just different to what you know so seems difficult.

Had the same problem in Victoria, was told I needed qualifications to push trollies in woolworths and because I had never used a Bunnings till they would not employ me. I used to work for a government organization in the UK and no one would give me a job here. I am starting a degree now, at least they will recognize that as it will be an Australian one. It is not easy, they expect everyone to have degrees unless you are on the skills shortage list then it is easy. My hubby found a job no problem because they needed his skills. Thankfully in Tasmania they seem to look at your experience.
