Good start
Operator (Current Employee) –  Dublin3 August 2019
Job is fine, shifts are horrible if you want a normal life with a routine. Money could be better so they would have less turnover.
Too many lazy people, specially old operators and polish. There's no motivation to work your best as even if you get the contract you keep the same money.
Pros
Some people
Cons
Money
