Having work there for 22 months it is the strangest place I have ever work for.The Money is great especially the overtime rates but that is the only positive. Unfortunately majority of the staff down there have a victim mentality and will do anything to avoid accountability. The work atmosphere is extremely toxic and stressful, half of the equipment you use is run down and doesn't work.
Great pay rate
Toxic atmosphere, racist people
Worked up through the ranks but if you disagree with management by following correct procedure then that's you done! Inadequate training which leads to high stress levels. Salary good and people on the shop floor are great to work with.
Night shift, poor management
Great place to work fantastic people best brands on the market and growing day by day, would say good place to help grow you and the role you do by showing great values that britvic live by, great place to work loved every minute i worked at Britivc
work hard play hard
I loved working at Britvic soft drink, lovely company and the staff were great , love members, I had no trouble there what so ever , the supervisors were very good and the security staff were very good.
toxic, poisonous culture allowed to freely spread throughout this company, backstabbing, job insecurity amongst many members of the company, lots of backside kissing seniors, arrogance, just plain vile - hated every second of every day
worst nightmare place to work ever
Operators are paid well for the area with a pretty easy role. Middle management are not looked after and always used as a scape goat. higher management changes regularly and always comes round every 4/5 years.
4 days off
no support for middle management

Work mates brilliant. The work was hard running around on 12 hour shift on your own in a stressful enviroment, machinery not very good always breaking down management used to be good but then made them redundant. Then no back up from new management some managers came from another factory, some looking back now we're bullies. I heard a lot of racist comments.
A typical day: Hard to quantify as each day could have different tasks. Among the tasks were prepping the palletisers(any whwre between 1 and 5 palletisers) to run, cleaning and lubricating palletisers, loading pallets of soft drinks onto trailers for delivery with fork truck which could be with a normal counter balance fork truck or a double handler fork truck, taking pallets of soft dinks of end of palletiser production lines and putting them into racks, cleaning the warehouse, fire marshal, first aid 5s inspection duties. I learned and gain some useful experience in operating fork trucks, sweepers, and palletisers, as well as fire marshal, first aid and 5s duties. Work culture was generally fine. Hardest part of the job was 12 hour night shifts. For me the most enjoyable part of the job was running the palletisers.
fast paced with a lot of personal responsibility but effort recognised and progression through to senior roles possible
great place to work and enjoyed my time there. progress within the company is only limited by the ambition of the individual concerned, self improvement courses offered and encouraged.
Good career jobs with lots of variety and career progression and investment in training but the factory in Norwich has now been closed so cannot work there any longer.
Unfortunately, in the department I worked in is, if your face fits you'll be ok. In this place it does depend who you work for, other departments are very relaxed and trust you, the manager of my department doesn't. Interview was bad, they reeled off a whole host of competency questions and left little time to talk about you and your experience.. My manager looks after themselves and their career and is not bothered about you as a person, so long as they have ticked all their boxes, they don't care about you. I like Britvic as a company but if you end up working in the wrong department, then I sympathise. Interestingly, there has been a vast turn over of staff over the past few years. If I knew this beforehand I would probably never have accepted the job.
