    Sue Mazi Job advertisement: (pay attention to the “Asian Only”)

    Farm #1: Job picking and packing strawberries. Contract pay. Live on farm $80 a week + bond returnable end of season. . Asian girls only

    Farm #2: Job picking and packing strawberries. Contract pay. Accommodation near farm $120 per week + bond returnable end of season. Walk to farm. Europeans and Asians

    Farm #3: Job picking and packing strawberries. Contract pay. Accommodation in the town (Wamuran or Caboolture) $140 per week including transport to work + bond returnable end of season. Asians only.

    This lady hires people based on their race. She is quite rude and will place you in very unfavorable working conditions. When I questioned her about why she has written “Asian Only” in her job advertisement she responded with this:
    Sue Mazi: “Asian only, yep, we do have Asians in Australia that are citizens. And they are Australians!! More right to be here in Australia than you two! I need Asian Australia/Asian backpackers who can speak Chinese or Vietnamese? And what if I got an Asian Canadian or Asian Norwegian that can speak Chinese on a working holiday visa? Report it mate, remember you are the bloody foreigner here…….”

    I of course have reported this to fair work Australia as it clearly states that in this country you can not hire someone based on their race or ethnicity. We can only hope angry people like this will not ruin your experience in this country. BEWARE

  2. Backpacker

    I can only confirm the facts of the previous review. Sue Mazi is a horrible person to dea and communicatel with. She asked me to pay a 200$ Bond that is related to me staying until the end of the season in October. If the farmer she hired me for would decide to fire me before that time of course she would keep that money. I am pretty sure that already is illegal. But it only started to get interesting after that…

    I was supposed to met Sue in a parking lot in Caboolture with my passport and visa information handy and of course with the bond and first week of rent (130$ on top of the 200$) cash. As I asked if I could see the room and maybe talk to the farmer before paying anything, Sue started to send me insulting and pressuring text messages and also accused me of harassing her – which I obviously did not do.

    I kind of understand that deal with having to rent a certain type of accommodation that come with these jobs (in this case a room shared with 4 people). What I do not understand is why someone would have to accept the fact to pay money for a room that can not even inspected before moving in.

    Obviously this women makes use of the desperate job situation in Australia that Backpackers currently found themselves in. Sad and simply unfair.

    People if you can find another place to work.

      Due to so much training involved in our industry you must stay all season. That is the end of September.
