Factory Worker in Watton
on 18 March 2019
good experience
good company to work for but very heavy job management encourages people to get the best out of them but some of the times gets a bit hard as at the end of the day you certainly feel tired

It does not get any worse
Hgv driver push push push all the time, management are a joke don't know what the job is. No home life, hours of the devil. Glad to be out of there. Don't do it.
Production Operative in Watton, Norfolk
on 15 July 2020
Fast paced and rewarding
Busy job in production - cold in the factory (need to wear layers), but given all the PPE you need. Trained so you know how to do your job and management are there for questions and support. Great people to work with and it makes the days go quick when you are busy and can have a bit of a laugh at the same time. Lots of people who have started out as Production Ops have progressed to earn more money in jobs with more responsibility and into Team Leader and Supervisor positions. If you work hard and are loyal, you will be rewarded with development and progression.
Pig stockman in Norfolk
on 14 July 2020
Friendly atmosphere with great support from all farm teams.
I have worked on many pig farms with many years experience and am so pleased to have started working with Cranswick. First day spent with HR and induction process dealing with standard operating procedures plus health & safety. Provided me with all necessary PPE before starting work with all their farms being fully equipped with up to date kit. Clearly a company who takes pride in the maintenance of machinery and the support from all involved is second to none. My manager is very knowledgeable in all aspects of the pig industry and is so passionate about his job that you feel comfortable in his surroundings.
Stockman in Norfolk
on 6 July 2020
Negative Experience
Worked as stockman on an outdoor breeding farm, major issues where obtaining or gaining access to basic P.P.E. such as gloves, overalls and wellington boots. most of the staffs attuited was awful not only towards others workers but treatment towards the animals was unassay and horrific, electric fence was over 10 years old and unable to contain livestock, which lead to pigs escaping into the near by Forrest. none of the staff checking the farrow took any pride in their job. workers who have been working within the company for years didn't know anything about any of the medications, pigs where left to suffer because of no medical intervention was carried out. staff routinely neglected vaccinating piglets and would generally opening bottles and pouring them onto the floor. syringes where not replaced regularly leading to staff being forced to make do with what they had which meant piglets where not being vaccinated. pigs that sustained injury such as broken back or legs would be left for weeks waiting on management to shoot them. staff within the company on other farms would leave mid way through the day and not return usually sending picture of themselves in the local pubs. machinery was dangerously patched together, farrow huts where dangerously patched together leaving nails and screws exposed for pigs cut themselves as well as staff when weening.
