Not a good company to work for at all

The management is poor, the manger is rude and doesn’t respect you a person your break is cut in half because everything needs to be cleared away, they don’t care about you at all, work you to death, don’t care about injuries or sickness. You’ll be expected to work sick, get told to ask for help when you ask for help you do not get it, false promises are made, if you injure yourself it doesn’t always get noted down in there injury book, breaks aren’t respected, during the Interview a lot of stuff is missed out and mangers gossip and will tell everyone your business

Terrible Management

Terrible management and awful pay in return. Worked there during the pandemic, was expected to complete over 50 hours of online training but then accused of not completing it due to spelling name wrong. Asked manager for accommodations due to health issues who got funny with me ever since. little collaboration and friendliness with colleagues
