Production Operator (Former Employee) –  Oranmore, County Galway25 May 2019
Dont be fooled by the location of this company it might be based on oranmore Galway there is more people from Clare than Galway because the management favour people from Clare over any other people from anywhere even if you are better skilled better worker means nothing it counts double for promotion in this company. The hr is terrible also a peer of mine made a complaint about a supervisor bullying her the company sat the two of them in the same room with one other member of management a friend of the supervisor accused and laughed at the person being bullied claims I witness them and 100% she was being bullied but they treated her terribly.
Save yourself the hassle dont apply here they are always looking for people for years now because of the terrible terrible conduct they have towards their employees.
Pros
Production are great people
Cons
Management pressure shift

Tough place to work
Production Operative (Former Employee) –  Oranmore, County Galway10 August 2017
Du pont work pattern is very difficult on the body clock. 4 nights on 12hr shifts, 2 days to change over for a 12hr day shift. Takes its toll on the body clock. There's no incentive to hit target, once you do it goes up and you get nothing for hitting it.
Training in someone new is a joke. You're expected to hit your target and keep an eye on someone else's work. If they mess up its on your name. That happens too often and you've to be retrained!
The new person gets signed off and you get nothing for it.
Due to the shift pattern you could be working bank holidays. You get the exact same pay as a normal working week. The shift not working are also getting paid.
The shift supervisors are all in competition with each other so be prepared to have them work you like a dog. Your breaks will be monitored closely. The competition also means they you could walk into a poor shift handover and are still expected to hit target. If you don't hit it you'll be explaining why.
The gang in the office look down on the production floor staff. Without the floor staff the office staff wouldn't be in the job, they really need to learn to appreciate the folks doing the manual labour.
Quality goes out the window the moment the auditors leave the building. Quality is purely lip service. It's numbers that's king in this place.
Pros
The people on the floor
Cons
Management, supervisors, pay, work hours

Bad Shift schedule and Targets unrealistic
Product Builder (Former Employee) –  Oranmore, County Galway18 April 2017
Rotating shift from 12 hour nights to days with little rest, worker fatigue.
No bonus system in place for hitting targets.
Targets being set are very unrealistic and are being enforced by constant pressure from supervisor and head engineers.
Pros
Good co-workers
Cons
Long Hours, rotating shift and Unrealistic targets set

Great People. Shift work a Negative
QE Technician (Current Employee) –  Oranmore, County Galway13 April 2016
The Du Pont shift just does not work for me. The week off just isn't a big enough carrot. Health and well-being is affected and thats the most important thing of all.
Pros
The people
Cons
Shift Work
