Fun work colliegs but bad company
Great grupe of lads who work on the line .But when you work there as a temp doing over 40 hours a week for over a year , they keep you on as a temp with no interest in offering you a perminant pesistion.then just one day after working there for a year they just say that's it bye no moor work

Low wages, high staff turnover, "EXPECTED" to work overtime, no job progression
Worked there for three years covering many roles including assembly operative, machine setter, picker, packer, chemical handler and trainer amongst other. I started initially as agency temp which all do then eventually contracted as CMP employee, which is nothing to write home about as you're actually worse off with monthly pay and none accuring holidays gained through working overtime.At first, I turned down MTREC placement offer at CMP twice prior as they have a horrendous reputation locally for the high turnover of staff which unfortunately is true.They currently have three factory units based next to each other in Cramlington and I would underestimate they take on and finish around 20 workers a month between them to fulfil their monthly order book or to replace staff that's had enough.Wages are poor at UK minimum plus 15% shift allowance, but you have to start at 6am finish at 2pm or 2pm till 10pm. You'll be "expected" to work Saturday and Sunday for months end, those that don't will probably get a text of MTREC saying they are no longer required.The longer you stay the more roles you'll get which is fine, but the wages will stay minimum regardless so there is zero chance of progression. Shop floor staff in the main are a decent bunch, however some supervisors are a little out their depth and are quick to tell tales to the upper management who are as equally incompetent to cover their own back.

Worst place to work
I really don’t know where to start. If it was possible to give 0 stars I would. Pay is horrendous, they get rid of you with the drop of a hat. They don’t like it when your correct so they expect you to act dumb around certain things.Don’t get shown on how to build things then when you explain to higher management the lower manager comes over and screams at you.I would only work here if I was literally on the bones.Treated so unfairly, the place is like a revolving door for staff

The last place in the world you want to work
Don’t work at this terrible place would be my recommendation. Some of the agency staff here are practically unemployable and even eastern Europeans do not want to work here.There is an awful backstabbing atmosphere, very cliquey, no such thing as team work here. All the team leaders look to do is pass the buck and blame others when something goes wrong. There is an absolutely huge turnover of staff.Arrogant rude management.Incompetant supervisors and shift managers.The wage on the shop floor is minimum wage, just about anywhere decent pays more than that. Believe me, this place is certainly not decent. The only thing about CMP is that there is plenty overtime, which you are expected to do whether you want to or not. Don’t do it and its bye bye.The senior management actually ask why nobody wants to work here. Just read a few of the reviews on here and you have your answer.

One of the worst jobs I've had!
no proper training, everyone is following their "idea" of the procedure and cutting corners so there are avoidable mistakes all day every day. Health and safety is abysmal, strapping on floors, steps in the middle of work areas that are the same colour as the floor, broken equipment that they refuse to replace because they don't want to pay for it etc.hygiene is in general awful, people eating on the shop floor whilst packing their crumbs into parcels yet they want to act as though its a strict environment.Team leaders are some of the worst, they don't care as long as they can point the finger to someone else and they will go out of their way to stitch up the other shift, its like a playground.they expect you to do overtime, they say it isn't mandatory but not doing it WILL effect you. they expect you to finish at 10pm and come in for 6am to do overtime. they made such a fuss about making sure they say the place is different now but its not, its just damage control because they cannot keep staff.
