Very Demanding
I found my time working at Pallas foods very Demanding. I began my shift everyday at 18:30 and started picking from either the ambient warehouse or chill warehouse.I found it difficult to focus as there was very loud and aggressive music playing over the intercom all night which was in foreign languages. I found the management to be friendly and fair for the most part. For me, the hardest part of the job was not being certain what time you finish work. After my 8 hours were completed, it was expected that I must stay until all orders are picked. So I could work over 50 hours a week, which is good for earning a decent wage but there is no work/life balance.

Disaster of a company
People been promoted without qualifications or experience a complete disaster from management . You’re left on your own devices management a complete joke. A lot of people hiding in a big company with fancy titles but nothing else . As they say the left arm doesn’t know what the right arm is doing

Management a joke, employees the nicest group I've ever worked with
We were offered commission for the month of December if we met specific targets this after months was paid in March , we asked for months for the breakdown of commission never to be seen as was a pittance and did not reflect the commission structure that was given to employees, don't be fooled minimum wage and 2 meat hampers for top sales that were gone out of date.... Thanks Pallas foods

Do yourself a favour and AVOID
It's really difficult to comprehend that in a country near full enjoyment people continue to tolerate working in Pallas foods. It really is that bad. It's a business driven by greed by people who have no understanding of how to treat employees as human beings let alone as a valued and appreciated workforce.They will push your limits to breaking point and then toss you aside when they have exploited the last from you. The HR function in particular are complete mercenaries and will feed you sugar while knifing you in the neck. It's not all bad though and the top feeding directors congratulate themselves regularly for the amazing job they do of trying to squeeze the last drop out of their charges. They will even attempt to organise a very occasional "fun" event as a photo opportunity of how progressive and giving they are as a business, but this does little to mask the stench of discontent and is a transparent photoshoot for the American owners. But don't take my word for it. Just ask anybody working there.
Pros
Some decent people work in the lower levels.
Cons
Where does one start?

Industrious and forwards thinking
Has ethos of accommodating their custom needs and for promotion opportunities were offered as a reward for hard work and commitment. They were always doing research for new products and new ideas to meet the market needs. However when the company was taken over by american company some of the culture change in line with applying US standards,
Pros
Opportunities for promotion as a reward for hard work
Cons
Moved warehouse to Dublin as a better distribution centre

Hard work but rewarding
Early start 04:30 am then finished when all deliveries are complete, you learn typically good customer service and how best to delegate your time. Management are always available should you need them. As a driver the hardest part of the day is dealing with other road users. The most enjoyable part of the job was knowing that you gave your customers a quality service
Pros
On going training
Cons
Physically hard work

Delivery Truck Driver
Horrible work system setup. Up to 40 deliveries/700 items per day all of them mixed up on pallets in random fashion. Constant stress of next day as you never know how busy your route is going to be. You might get workload shifted from different trucks to you, resulting your shift being 13 hours long with no extra pay.
Extremely unsafe as you might need to break down all pallets for your first few deliveries with no work space to do so. It takes hours and is very frustrating as you dive in mess shifting same boxes from floor level several times destroying your lower back. If you trip and genuinely hurt yourself you'll get left wageless for weeks. This company has no respect for health and safety. Everything is just mindless ticking off boxes on paper sheet.

No food safety either as you have to literally walk on food to get across the truck.

Ignorant managment, they will always stop at nothing to prove you wrong. People leaving the job on daily basis. Some last only few days.
Pros
I can't think of any
Cons
Everything, the biggest one being stress affecting your life outside of work

Thankless work. Truly awful place.
The people I work with are sound. Good team work and camaraderie which makes the rest of it more tolerable. The management are just a different breed of mercenaries I have not encountered in my life. The new management are worse than the old and will smile to your face while knifing you in the back. At least some of the old lads were just plain thugs.The work is thankess and hard. The facilites are terrible and just announced closure of the warehouse where 60 lucky people get to leave with a small payoff.
Pros
Cant think of any
Cons
Long thankless hours of physical labour for measley pay and tyrant management

Very bad company worst delivery job I have ever had
Pallas foods is a big multi national company .
What a joke to work for , management have no respect for workers, back breaking work picking off pallets all day 30 + calls a day no helpers , van drivers some times are helpers and get the same pay and more often more pay as they are payed by the hour , truck drivers are on a set wage, new drivers are paid the same regardless of experience or license categories.

Better of staying away from Pallas foods , very bad attitude towards workers
Cons
Long hours hard work treated like dirt
