Warehouse Operative (Former Employee) – Dublin – 2 February 2018
It was a very small depot for the amount of product being held in it space a big factor because of this people got stressed when trying to do there job as you tried to put pallets of stock in one place as they went to get another pallet someone would move there pallets as they wanted that space for another order and this would cause people to get stressed out with one another. We got loads of training on different things. There were 3 shifts 1st was 6 am - 2 pm witch were called the key areas which were Stock Control , Market Returns , In Take , Admin ,
The other 2 shifts were from 2 pm -10 pm and 10 pm - 6 am. This is when the orders were picked and loaded.
Overall it was a great place to work with a excellent work force who most had being working there for over 10 years and new the job inside out.
If you worked overtime you received a meal allowance
When asked to do overtime you always said yes just to get the job done

A day of work in Glanbia started at 8:30am and ended at 5:30pm. At the start I felt Glanbia was not the place for me but as the weeks progressed I started to take a liking to it. I learned lots of valuable things such as different types of hardware etc. I got to interact with all sorts of people on a daily bases. I enjoyed assisting people and dealing with tills. I ever found anything to difficult and gave every task 100%

I spent my holidays during school working within the factory as a general operative, this is where I learned the importance of team work. while working as a general operative it at times hard, but the team spirit was enough to get you through..
General Operative (Former Employee) – Drogheda, County Louth – 6 June 2017
Admittedly I didn't enjoy a lot of my time there in a factory environment as I believe I was too immature to appreciate that with such a company, if I pushed myself, I could very easily have acquired some sort of advancement. The wages were excellent and the roster was good. In fairness the experience I gained has stood to me since and has helped me secure work since I left glanbia, in terms of implementing health and safety and hygiene practices. However a factory environment can be a very negative place to work in.
Crop Inspector (Former Employee) – Carlow – 23 November 2016

Retail (Current Employee) – Dublin – 14 February 2016
The only thing this company is interested in, is profits and sales figures. How hard you work isn't taken into consideration, so long as the management make their budgets and get their bonuses, the small guy at the bottom of the wrung stays there!
Professional workplace, with fun, approachable departments
IT Service Desk - First Line Support (Former Employee) – Kilkenny, Ireland – 23 October 2015
My daily routine involved taking calls, emails and IM's from end users regarding their IT issues and logging them to our Incident Management Suite LANDesk. From there i would respond and help resolve incidents where possible and then escalate calls where it was not possible. The management and co-workers, although very busy and often tough on you, were very helpful and friendly. There was never a fear of asking questions, no matter how stupid it may seem. The hardest part of my job was trying to priorities the overwhelming number of calls that we dealt with during the day. Recognizing which calls were more important than others and finding a way to deal them. I had numerous enjoyable parts of my job, including resolving a tough call and hearing the end users elated response and receiving thanks for them. Also when you have built up a rapport with end users and the ask for you because they trust you.

The most enjoyable part of the job was interacting with the customers and making new friends while working there.
