Poor management. Pro bullies, anti victim. Unions control company and management. They can do what they want and abuse fellow union members. Those who have seniority control everything

The staff at Glanbia are without a doubt their biggest asset. Loyal and hardworking and always willing to help. The problem is the managers specifically withings the accounts Payable department in the SSC Dungarvan and the HR. The managers are disconnected and foster a sense of lying to their staff. Everyones backs are up when manager or supervisor is around and the place is so much nicer to work on a day when the manager and supervisor and away and the team leads are in charge

My experience of Glanbia was very beneficial and rewarding. It gave me a great idea of work and the duties that are required in the work force. I worked in the yard which gave me the idea of working in a warehouse and is the reason I am applying for this job.

A typical day at work is fine, very easy work. Since I’ve started this job I’ve learned how to deal with money and customers in the right way. I don’t find any part of my job difficult, I find it very straight forward.

SAP support team is staffed by strong experienced resources who can gain further good practical solution and process knowledge in their day to day activities. Whilst staff attrition is high in the lower ranks it is very low in the senior positions and therefore opportunity to progress beyond a support role is very very limited.
Pros
Talented resources
Cons
Work environment, lack of opportunity

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.
Pros
If you worked overtime you received a meal allowance
Cons
When asked to do overtime you always said yes just to get the job done

Fast moving goods industry is a busy environment. Picking using the voice picking system can cause fatigue. This is difficult when coupled with shift work.

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%
Pros
long lunch break
Cons
None

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..

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.
Pros
Great wages
Cons
Sometime negative environment

Felt like a number rather than an employee at times. The jobs that I was assigned and limited my ability to show my skills, I felt restricted with my tasks.
Pros
Working on exciting projects
Cons
Repetitive
