Not the job that was sold

Big staffing problem losing very good people due to culture and management, Really out of touch for a Glanbia site, micro management, blame game environment ,Just seen as a number not valued .HR changing terms of contacts when the wish.

Lack of hours and alright pay

Started working here and hours were good, the longer I’ve been here the less and less hours you get, other staff and given more hours than you even though you have asked on numerous occasions to up the hours as the payslip at the end of the week is lower than what a person can survive on and have a basic standard of living. Overall most of the staff are friendly and chatty. The company itself is excellent and not faulted it’s just management of branch is the issue, some staff are favoured over others resulting in more hours to them rather than split evenly. Pay was basic just a few cent above minimum wage and any over time was paid fairly. I loved working here at the start, if anyone felt ill I was straight up to jump to cover but now the motivation is gone as there’s no point it’s not appreciated anymore.

Pros

Excellent company, chance to move positions within, good culture and ideal company to work for

Cons

Unfair hours, low wage in branches, poor management, favour certain workers over you

Poor employer

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

Great staff - awful management

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

Pleasant place to work

Great local camraderie, possibly a big gap between local branches and head office. Great work place culture. Good communication to customers and clean environment

Glanbia co-op

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.

Good people but no career progression opportunities

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

Productive Workplace

I was employed on a part-time basis, working Monday and Tueday's in the Glanbia Co-op in Tallow Co. Waterford. I was dealing with the public every day selling products over the counter in the shop.

Tough Work

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.

Glanbia had a good atmosphere and the staff were friendly.

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
