Once you get used to the cold, smell its good. Work/life balance is awful. To many hours for little money
Managers and supervisors are great, they make sure that we get warmed up before starting. The canteen is nice. Work and life balance us awful, to many hours and little pay. I was not paid for my first month only after calling management a few times and saying I will leave and sue them if they wont pay. I was lied to at the interview, told I wouldn't start till 7 and finish at 3. I work 6 until 4.

Don’t pay the proper rate. Supervisors want the Irish out as quick as they can.

Fast paced with excellent exposure
From day 1 you are exposed to senior management. This gives you the confidence and opportunity to progress in your career. It is a very fast paced culture, however this can be managed with excellent time management skills

Slavery
Absolute slavery of a place to work ... would not recommend working for this company to anybody not even my worst enemy.. get treated like a piece of dirt from the minute you start till you leave ... take a day of over been sick and get shouted at because you took the day off ... if I say anything more about the lovely kepak I'd be in trouble...

Kepak awful place to work , over worked for minimum wage
There is a reason they give jobs to people over the phone with no interview cause they can’t look after the staff they have and are desperate, nice canteen and nice people there the only good thing
Pros
Weekends off
Cons
Over worked
