Machine Operator in Cwmbran, Monmouthshire
Not a nice place to work
Where do I start? HR doesn't know what goes on in the factory, but when they do, it gets overlooked.Most management are people who have blagged their way up, and not earned jobs through skills, decision making.If you personally want to succeed, you best be a good talker, because you won't be allowed to otherwise.Supervisors are often nasty people who don't a clue how lines run, or give you the tools to do your job, change overs etc Most team leaders are bullies who think they are gods because they earn £10 more a week than you, and enjoy many breaks.They run their lines into the ground, running them too fast, which often causes breakdowns. Maintenance is a rarity, they just botch job over and over. Or they alter the machines, so much so their warranties get invalid. You then get the blame for the downtime caused.They have a 'Continuous Improvement' team that collect data in the mornings and then basically sit in their little office all day doing literally nothing, apart from when they have to go for their breaks, In which they will walk around the factory showing off on their phones, just because they and management can use them, but workers can't.The majority of workers in the factory are lovely, though many have had enough of what they have to put up with.Weekly pay is good, even though machine operators take home less than night shift packers, who earn the most of all shifts.You will be expected to clean without the necessary equipment. You have to go into work an hour early so you can get a car park space.

Horrible work place
Everybody is angry, the manager changes your shift whatever she wants. They cancel your day two hours before your working day.The supervisor doesn’t help u, the people is bored and unresponsive
