Quality Auditor in Newark-on-Trent
on 23 June 2022
Position an job role wasn’t as explained it was more QC also the money was low compared to all other QAs hence leaving the company some people in the offices were very engaging and motivating but unfortunately some managers were not that help full. They didn’t have the time or want to put in the effort to help progress but can’t be said for all managers as some want others to do well.
All Rounder Support in Spalding
on 20 June 2022
Too much work, too little pay
48 hours isn’t too much of a hassle to do per week but it was the sheer fact that it was 12 per day and sometimes a few days in a row. I had to cut it down to 36 for me just because I had no way of getting home, have a meal and shower in time before needing to sleep for the shift the next day. My shifts were either from 5:30am-5:30pm or 6am-6pm, making me leave my house a hour before that making me have to drive in the dark on a Moped, it wasn’t the safest or ideal way of transport but it was all I had.I only had the job for a couple months before getting let off by a mistake of the agent who told me I needed to do this test assignment at Peterborough which it wasn’t in Peterborough. I was annoyed but at that point, I was kind of happy that I was free from it all.It wasn’t the best place honestly. No place to put my belongings, hours were too much, felt super disconnected from the rest of the crew as they all spoke in their language and most of the time I wasn’t needed at times so I was just let off early. Comparing this job to my previous one and the one I have now, this was a nightmare.

Poor management and stressful environment , but continental shifts are brilliant
Holbeach Pizza has been always a challenging place to work, but during the last few years of management rotations, I found that particular bakkavor factory, is one of the worst. If you have a choice go to Spalding and avoid Holbeach.

Good place to work
Everything depends on people surrounding you. If you land working with good team job is fine. Good atmosphere. Low temperatures in packing/packaging areas.
Production Worker in UK

Demanding environment
Management very demanding, doesn't listen to employees.Lots of politics and managers just follow leadership blindly. Don't treat employees or their customers with the right amount of respect.
