Terrible place to work
Kerry is a terrible place to work. It's run by kids straight out of college who never worked a day in their lives. They keep check on every minute at the clock. The shift work requires you to work 7 days, evenings or nights a week.

Management style is from the 1950's
Expectation for General Operators is to work 7 days per week Kerry expects to be entitled to change your shift pattern at a days notice no matter what plans you may have made. No respect for peoples personal lives.
Pros
Money reasonable for operator work
Cons
Shift patterns ridiculous

Good workplace. Good opportunities.
I worked there for nearly 17 years. I started there when it was Golden vale. Kerry foods took over in 2002. I started on the production floor packing the product , then moved to the cooking and preparation of the product. At first it was mostly manual labour in the cooking evolving to automatic addition of ingredients.
Pros
Free meals if we worked 4 hours overtime.
Cons
12 hour shifts

Enjoyable environment to work in. A company that values and rewards employee input.
Operating high speed production lines to optimum efficiency and think on you feet to problem solve issues as they arise.Working as an individual to perform tasks and working as a team member to deliver Kerry's mission statement.
Management at Kerry are supportive to there employees actively encourage and reward employees that multi skill across the business. This in turn creates an ethic of "can do" attitude.

The hardest part of the job is being on shift work and the most enjoyable part of the job is knowing that we produced high quality products that are enjoyed by millions across Europe.
Pros
Great pay and conditions.Job security
Cons
Shift work

An excellent place to work
Typical working hours were 9 - 5.30pm. Management were always there when they were needed and kept a discreet presence in the workplace. They were always very approachable and most helpful. The other staff members were great, great to help and advise and to offer support. I didn't find any part of the job difficult as such, it was challenging and very interesting.
Pros
great people, great place to be
