Made some great friends worked hard but after being put on nights after five months let go like rest of people . Manager sit back put you in at deep end . Don't care stay away from here the term use and abuse comes to mind.. plus ask yourself why are they looking for so many people

Keep well away from this place. There is a stark difference from what actually happens on a daily basis from the the picture that was painted at the interview. Steer clear

I worked there for a number of months, on night shift, despite asking to be moved onto the day shift as didn't suit, they didn't take into consideration, despite newcomers getting in on days, I was left on nights. Also, little or no Irish working there so tend to be in the minority.

a typical day at work was working on a food manufacturing line
I learned how to work as part of a team

Management was very helpful when I started working there

My co-workers were very helpful and nice people to work with

The hardest part of the job was pushing bins full of rice and noodles to the manufacturing line.

The most enjoyable part of the job was making different food products every night
Pros
cheap lunch good wages, close to home
Cons
none

An early start calling on retail outlets selling chilled food products. You learn very quickly to know your route and the use of handheld technology. The management for the most part were helpful and would give you any assistance needed to surpass your given targets.
The other employees were all very helpful if you needed any help and it was like being part of a family. The hardest part of my job was the long days. The most enjoyable part of my job was closing a sale.
Pros
lunch allowance, good salary.
Cons
long hours.
