Stressful work environment
Management were terrible and were similar to slave drivers. At one point, with an issue regarding a problem during an inspection, one manager sought to blame me for this issue, whilst they had me working on a different area at the time. Disgraceful and unfair company to work for.

Slave drivers
These are scum to work for.
During the covid 19 pandemic they are advising workers to take ibroprufen and paracetamol to lower temperatures so they can pass a temperature test even though some employees have the disease.

The work is also crippling and soul destroying for minimum wage.

They also tend to favor giving work to foreign nationalists.

Dawn Meats Workplace
Start early (7:00am) and can often finish late. Pay is quite poor for a hard labour intensive day. Most enjoyable part of the job is working as part of a team and getting to know others.

Traditional work ethic
Overall staff were pleasant and helpful however some staff tended to be self orientated and lacked ability to work as a team. Little flexible work hours and poor work culture

A meat factory..
It’s a shift work meat factory. Monday to Friday is great and the pay was decent enough aswell. Management on the floor are Okay but any management upstairs are far from it. HR is absolutely scandalous and how they look at cases/ employees are terrible. They do not care as you are just simply a number IN the clocking system.
Pros
Steady job
Cons
Management are terrible. HR are worse. Meat factory, long days.

Vary bad place to work
No safety rules, slave work.
Salary below required minimum. 8.9

Hard work conditions.

THey use opportunity that most people doesn't speak english.

Company can fire you within one week in trial period of 11 months and they often do that.

No care about your health. Wouldn not recommend to anybody.

enjoyable work place
My typical day at dawn meat would be to handle the meat in a health and safety manner making sure it was carried out appropriately following the proper procedures in cutting and trimming the meat.
Work place was fun and the staff was helpful and hardworkers.

The hardest job was to make sure it all was carried out safely when handling food but it was good once it all was carried out.
