The managers are lovely, there's always plenty of work to do and the work is easy. My only complaint is their high turnover and lack of job security. That's all.
Pros
friendly environment
Cons
no job security

this job is what you may expect from a Irish employer, disorganised, no one knows what they are doing, can`t get the job done fast enough.
they are quick to blame employees when things go wrong.

The company was amazing to work for and had many benefits such as early finishes on a Friday and no weekend work unless overtime was available! The balance between work and home life was perfect due to a different shift attern each week

I have been working in Kerry Food for 2 years, I like the job, the salary and the people who work with me, because they always help and each other. Kerry foods have high standards and are committed to working with great responsibility.

I worked 3pm to 11pm Monday to Thursday and 2pm to 9pm on a Friday. Above minimum wage which was great considering the job is not difficult by any means. Overtime offered but not compulsory. Paid bank holidays. Provided me with money to pay for my degree which I did in the mornings. Good for saving money. Couldn't complain about it. Great opportunities for anyone looking to progress and make it a career.
Pros
Good pay. Good shift hours. Overtime available.
Cons
Privatised canteen not a great standard.

I spent 3 weeks at Kerry Foods and after these 3 weeks I was laid off, being told it was due to hygeine issues, despite showering every morning/evening before work and always wearing PPE.
The managers seemed to pick and choose who did the better jobs and they did not seem to like me.
Pros
free butter
Cons
Won't be working there long

My experienced was mixed, but I don't blame the employer just the agency that did prepare me for the job that I was to do, but other then that it was actually a good place to work and the staff where great. I would consider working for them again in the future.

My duties where working on a production line and helping with packing and labelling.

Day to day processing of customer orders for product processing. I learned all aspects of the department ranging from opening intake goods to preperation for cooking. I also learned the Quality Assurance side of the business and also shop floor team leader ability. Management was very open to suggestion on processes yet were very knowledgeable on how to accomplish daily deadlines and goals. The hardest days were during peak seasons where orders were sometimes impossible to complete in a single day. The most enjoyable part of the job was working with the team of co-workers, these people made the job so much easier to handle with thier vast knowledge and friendly manner.
