Work Experience (Former Employee) - Dublin - 20 July 2019
While at Allergan I learnt so much and met so many nice people. I got a glimpse into the day by day running of the company and I got to see the science behind everything. It was such a good experience and one that I will never forget.
A great place to work, a good balance of production from the many healthcare products that Allergan produce. You have to have the right mindset in a job like this as you are helping to create a product that is going to benefit the customer so GMP is essential. You also have to have the personality to deal with all members of staff so as to assure a smooth running of the product you are working on.
Zaragoza Dublin is a very busy restaurant all day long. There is a great buzz amongst customers and staff working there. Al, the floor and kitchen staff get along spectacular with one another.
The hardest part of the job is dealing with the pressure of having everything run as efficiently and as fast as possible. The most enjoyable part is interacting with the customers.
Free dinner from the kitchen at the end of every shift.
Not many breaks, sometimes none except towards the end, depending on how busy it is.
I learned many things through this company, the environment is nice and the co-workers are professional. Very good team. The hardest part of the job was to follow some procedure sometimes and some SOPs that should have been edited, but this was at the same time the most enjoyable part of the job, because I like challenging myself. Working in this company kept me motivated, enthusiastic and very dedicated on what I was doing in order to help the company to grow more.
I was lucky most of the people I worked with were guys I went to school with so it was easy to fit in there. Allergan pharmaceutical Ireland was a great place to work once you got used to working the three cycle shift. Before the company decided to move it's manufacturing over seas there was as much over time as you could do.
I worked as a set up Maintenance worker which involved huge responsibility as the production line relied solely on the correct set up of this line.
I had to work closely with the production department to ensure the smooth running of the various production lines.
Management left the running and operating to us but all had to be detailed and reported on a daily basis.
I enjoyed working as part of a team but equally I had to take initiative and be able to work on my own. I enjoyed the challenge.
I gained a lot of experience and satisfaction in this job & I took voluntary redundancy and that was the reason for my departing from this job.
