If your a pretty female, you will get an easy job in the factory or you may get to be a staff co-ordinator. Otherwise, you are doomed. Cost-cutting and wage budgeting is the manner in which they continuously profit. This comes at the expense of employees who have to do 2 person's job because they are reluctant to pay for extra staff even when desperately needed. Ridiculous health and safety practices left a (permanent) employee requiring an emergency helicopter in one of the factories(which Samworth Brothers is brushing under the carpet). Shifts get cancelled last minute and they make up an excuse so you are left with no work quite often.
the industry that i work for is located in leicester, and it is easy for me to travel from where i love to thid job. the working environment is not good, because people where i work are not well behaved, and this is the only issues of my job.
not good working environment
Forced to sign up by A4e/PeoplePlus or be sanctioned, having to pay transport to get to the location. Shift advertised as 10pm-6am, was actually 9:30 to 5:30, 30min break not paid. Staff on location in high care expect you to know what to do and how to do it "up to standard", even if you've ever been in food production before. Standing up entire shift. Felt isolated because no one around me spoke clear English. Only did 7 shifts across 3 weeks before moving on. If you need the money, it's ok, minimum wage.
No paid breaks, have to pay if you can't travel to locations
busy u go in and keep busy from start to finish, they can put u in various factorys around leicester dealing with food. iv learned alot when it come to making fresh cakes and dealing with meat. the hardest job would be hygiene. but the most enjoyable aspect would be how quick ur days go through being busy.
The hours can be a bit unstable for example one day you maybe working 10 hours and the next you may get a call to tell you there is no work. I've gone as many as 2 weeks without work from them before. However once you've been working for them for 3 months you do get a new 7 and a half hour contract.
Free coffee in the cafeteria after 6:30pm
By this agency I worked at the factory.In this work, got an early start in the morning and ended after 8 or 12 hours. Work consisted of sausages packaged in a carton and send them to the shops. The worst thing in the parcy was able dlegie the production line.
