Okay If your in the right department

Indeed featured review

The most useful review selected by Indeed
I previously worked at the louth branch as a machine operator in extrusion department.The hours are long especially when your in heat that makes you drip with sweat within the first hour, can be fast paced depending on what machine your running. The lads on the shop floor work as a unit and you end up having a brotherly bond, great laugh with them all and all help each other, you have to in this place to be honest or you'd want to walk out within a week. Managers are totally different to the lads on the shop floor, the managers won't listen to advice from the people running the machines, they just give you jobs that's impossible to complete on certain machines, but it's you who gets the blame when it goes wrong. You know its bad when you have 5 managers with nearly half a million in salaries between them unable to send a machine up within 3 hours haha, when you can do it in 5 mins and have to show them.


Lads on the shop floor Shift pattern


Managers Heat

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!!


Can earn good money OT always available


List is a million miles long

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




Everything about the place, Management are rubbish

Don’t work there unless you want you life ruined

If you decide to work there then good luck to you because they act like they care about you and they support you but in the end they drop you like a lead balloon and heaven forbid you have have an outside life yeah you won’t have one anymore


Job security

Rate your recent company

Share your experience to help others

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.




Bosses are ignorant

Good place to work

Everybody worked as a team and helped one another. Great communication between everyone. Also everyone was happy to help me when I was new. It made me feel like they wanted me to work there and made me confident to come work for them the next day.

Management are appauling

Have to be one of the management's favourites to get any promotion there. The wages are good for what you do but the stress involved and the staff morale is so low, a lot of people are walking out and lots of redundancies have been made so the company is on the slide

Death sentence

Management is awful. Worked here for 8 years and was with them when they changed over from Britton Merlin. Since then everything has gone downhill. Trainees training trainees, too many chiefs and too many unessesery rules. Anyone above a team leader role is clueless. Honestly do NOT apply unless you want to sign your mental state and life away.


It's a job


Management 100%

Good place for a career

Great company with good career path, but it includes some hard work. The management is understanding and treats staff well, even while maintaining high production in the factory.


Great management, good money
