Dreadful place to work

Horrible place to work they try stich you up on everything no one cares about anyone or anything. The managers and reps look after themselves and don't care about the shopfloor people. They chip away your everything from pay talks to team spirit confidence morale everything. People are trying their best to get out of there.

Pros

Easy work

Cons

They make your life miserable

Two pay rises in a year

I progressed fast in this role, from admin to brand coordinator to project coordinator, and with it had two pay rises in 18 months, however this is because I put in a lot of hard work. If you are innovative they will reward you for it. I left due to personal values did not align with the industry of plastic production, however the job was very fulfilling.

Pros

Company cars, expenses paid business trips, good staff

Cons

In an industry that is making a lot of plastic waste

Not fun

Had A two day induction on how good the company was and how well they looked after the staff but all a smoke screen. Was not told how to do the job by the shift manager and the shift supervisor. Was asked to leave after 3 days of working there because I was to slow on the forklift. Management and supervisors should explain what is required of new staff and explain the job not just give them the paperwork and get on with it I know I have been a supervisor for 15years of my 30+years of working and I never did that I would spend weeks with them if necessary. Sort it

Pros

none

Cons

No man management unless they are firing you

Poor management no staff

Place is in a poor state. Use to work there, getting people in with so called experience and offering them grades higher than guys who have been there for years. Management stab everyone in the back to the other supervisors. Nothing ever good enough. Pay is fine but works none stop, wrecks ya home life and puts you in a really low place at times. Never seen the place manned up with staff since the day that i started. Avoid if possible!!

Pros

Can earn good money OT always available

Cons

List is a million miles long

Going downhill very fast

Used to be a family run business but now since new managers from FAILED companies are in charge it has no soul and the moral is the lowest I have ever known in 3o years. CHARTWELL (time and motion!) And failed upper managers are responsible for all the downgrading and dropping peoples pay .the training is now gone and they introduced a FORCED extra 6 shifts with the threat of disciplinary action if you don't do them, the operators are having more work forced on them whilst the managers WORK(have a holiday)from home .HR department are puppets being operated by poor management and shouldn't really have HUMAN in their title. Most of the guys are sound and great to work with and its a shame to see so many broken men working there,you are treated like you don't matter and depression is something you will get working here but don't expect any support if you become ill .Production is priority over health and safety now ,targets are set by people sat a desk drinking coffee there is no support to achieve the targets just scowls and disrespectful comments from certain people .This is not a rant from a disgruntled employee its from someone who has worked here for 30 years so I may know a little about how the place has been run compared to now .I have seen some great people who cared pushed aside by failed managers from another broken bankrupt company . Hopefully they will reduce the wage bill like they want and sell it to a company that will take care of its employees as soon as possible.

Pros

Free coffee for office staff?

Cons

Very hard work and with no praise at all and a forced regime

No compassion

What can i say the place is a joke!! workers who are lazy poor attendance and don't work to the standards get promotions,they must be blind or only see what they want to see!! workers who graft to the best standards don't take the mick and are never off and have loyalty to the company get treated like rubbish pushing them into stress and depression, all i can say is that i hope you can all sleep at night knowing you mess with people's heads

Pros

some friendly staff

Cons

Great customers and an enjoyable job

I worked at coveris for just over 2 years and thoroughly enjoyed my job. The best part was dealing with the customers I built up some great relationships and when I left thats what I knew I would miss the most. It isn't am easy job there are many things that you need to learn and even after 2 years of being there I was still learning. The only reason why I left was due to the office being more like a playground due to one individual. I struggled to continue to work with them as they made it very difficult and I started to dread going into work everyday. The actual job itself was great the external sales reps were nice and other members of the office team again were brilliant and would do anything to help you. The only down side was that individual and office gossip I believe they have gone now so hopefully that had changed the atmosphere massively! If I could go back working here I would. Salary is good, office manager is supportive and the training is enough to give you the tools you need

Pros

Salary, customers, office staff

Cons

office gossip

Deluded new managers

Well the money is good and that's about it, new managers from Preston have ruined the place ! Deluded and have no idea how to manage the place, the company used to be good but no more ! Forever short staffed, zero experience and constant pressure from the managers will soon have you depressed !

Pros

Money and days off

Cons

Pressure from deluded cowboys

Terrible Place to work DONT BOTHER

I’ve been working at this place for a couple of years and I can say it’s the worst place I have ever worked. They give you a disaplinary for the most stupid things. But if your face fits you get away with it. They promote idiots to grade 5 who break all the rules but nothing gets done about it. Loyal hard workers get no thanks, just put on to do more donkey work. The wages are rubbish and poor mangement

Pros

None

Cons

Everything about the place, Management are rubbish

Dreadful and unorganised

Where to start? It’s terrible If you like working 12 hour shifts in the summer in 35 degree heat and working fast pace and your manager telling you to speed your line up, then sign right up. The majority of the lads on my shift at my time at Coveris we’re sound, you would have a few who would love to run to the shift manager once they heard some gossip. The people who progress are the people who lick bum and only get to where they are because they love their p*iof a manager. I spent 2-3 years there. I have seen approximately 40 people join and about 2-4 people have stayed. If I was you I wouldn’t waste my time with this dump. When I left everyone agreed that I made the right decision. They wished they were younger and didn’t have responsibilities otherwise they would be leaving ASAP!

fast pace

its work /gym , its can be very warm in the summer but the breaks given is enough to cope , the work can be repetitive with a lot of heavy lifting and running around, The employs you work with are great , there wasn't a shift without a laugh ,That helped with the stress of the job . the pay is good without over time and with overtime it can be very good , time off over Christmas, Christmas voucher , tvs for the world cup . its a well oiled company that needs a few upgrades but overall great .

Dont waste your time.

This place has the worst rep in louth for a good reason. The bosses never listen to any advise they are given as they think they are better than everyone else. After they have wasted company money on obviuous wrong choices they are currently making half the company redundent, Is meant to be a clean factory as it provides to the food industry but has rabbits running wild on site and you have to walk through their droppings getting from one place to another. This place is a sinking ship going down fast.

Pros

None

Cons

Bosses are ignorant

Mixed messages

Could be better. Not a job for the work shy hot physical work, with a good amount of technical knowledge needed. To this end the starting wage is low in my opinion, especially when taking into consideration the 4 on 4 off shifts. Biggest downside is the lack of consistency in priorities from management. Not out the ordinary to hear several different aims throughout a 12hr shift. Can hear concentrate on training at the start of a shift, then a few hours later be told not to bother with that concentate on something else, and later on be told another priority, all while keeping your extrusion line running efficiently. Usually happens when on day shifts during the mon-friday. Too many cheifs all trying to prove something pulling operators left to right on a whim. Would be much better if management could work in a consistant mannor.

Pros

Chance to learn a technical job. Decent numeration if you can progress through operator grades.

Cons

Hit and miss training, long hours, hot work, top down culture.
