The worst company in Galway too work for they do not care about there workers all they want is numbers and fill you with empty promises to get you too better the yearly merit is judged on what the company wants to give you not on the persons performance people are overworked and under paid.
Stay clear off this place.

Supervisors and value streams are a disgrace

Management were absolutely terrible. Would constantly blame temps and agency workers for their own incompetence. The work itself was a bit stressful but not too bad overall if you were willing to work but even after years 1 slight mistake and management would hang you for it. Very incompetent pod managers.

A typical day at work began with the engineering team meeting where the days tasks and issues were discussed. Any task or issue you faced was always presented to the team and anyone with any knowledge would always help out. My co-workers were very welcoming and helpful during my time there. They thought me many CAD, 3D printing, communication, management and basic work skills. The hardest part of the job was getting everyone to agree on the same solution. With lots of opinions and knowledge it's important to listen to everyone's ideas and collectively agree on a solution. Getting collective agreement was often difficult, by being patient and gathering as much information about the task as possible, I overcame these challenges. Overall my time in Zimmer Biomet was very beneficial and productive.

Work is very repetitive and boring, a lead operator walks around all day asking you at least 15 times a day 'Are You Ok' which means 'Target' and adds no value to the company.

I learned absolutely nothing here as there is no communciation channels or courses were offered to upskill, no career development plan.


Management is very poor and unprofessional and hire alot of family or friends with no experience in this industry, in turn all of these people will be giving more preferential treatment to normal employees with training/development, promotions / handy jobs.


Targets are high and when you manage to get target it goes up the next day with no incentive, as hitting your target is the main priority of the job.


The most enjoyable part of the job was there was a few good people there, who felt the same and all they wanted was out as they just had enough with the behaviour of management, and getting a new job and leaving was the best thing that ever happened to me.

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

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

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

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
