The job was good. It was varied and had very good depth. There were obvious avenues for progression also (if you were the right candidate). The people were nice enough, but talked a lot. There were a lot of expectations because of this. Given production targets were important, work done was metered: some people would still work more, take everyone's work; causing many others to have lower numbers. Management were reasonable, though you are expendable and they will move you around as they see fit – in particular if you don't fit in. If you don't fit in in fact, they will likely get rid of you. What adds to that is there is plenty of room for error in doing the role, given concentration for 12 hours is the norm; as well as a multitude of other factors in the other roles. It seems if favour is not given to you as the worker, after your work , they will not consider, or at least heavily weigh against giving you work – the agency are fickle.
Pros
Good work, good pay, some progression opportunities
Cons
Hidden expectations - If your face doesn't fit... Haughtiness can make life very hard

You get thrown around the whole factory where ever they need staff if youre not working with one specific team. No proper training to help you with that neither and no guaranteed hours (unless in a team)
Pros
Hourly Pay
Cons
Only 12hr shifts

I worked on the assembly line at Boots in Nottingham, this involved checking the labels on the goods and ensuring the batch number was readable. Management was very supportive of external duties. Some lines were faster than others, this could be hard to keep up with. The people I worked with were a friendly bunch, this made the day go quicker.

Pros
Nice friendly staff
Cons
Few hours/no hours whatsoever, dont pay what you earn, mess about

No two days are the same. The management are helpful and understanding, especially when dealing with unexpected problems. For me, a hard part of the job was long commutes as all posting so far have been in West Hull, this meant short-notice shifts proved a problem, but they understand.
Pros
In depth inductions
Cons
Distanceof postings.
