Meat packer (Current Employee) – Watergrasshill, County Cork – 17 October 2017
Worst job and worst wok colleagues, 99% of people who works there are Polish, they are rude and not friendly at all, nobody want to help to new people. Supervisors are bad, barely speaking English... Place is very cold and salary is low.
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
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.
