Not very organized with anything, pay, scheduling and other aspects. I was chosen to be paid less than other new starters, but believe I brought more to the table than some.
Pros
Paid breaks and 5 days off after 5 on.
Cons
Long Hours

Don’t do it unless you are looking to get treated like rubbish. The place is full of lies, false promises and bad management on the maintenance side. All the normal staff were great lads but the management were awful.

If your face doesn't fit or you speak your mind then they will use underhanded tricks to get you out so you dont upset there apple cart. Lots of theft that management cover up and turn a blind eye to. Raise your concerns and they close ranks. Plants falling to bits and zero investment. Operators undertrained and ignorant in there inability to accept there limits then covered up by production manager when serious problems arise and blame shifted onto maintenance. Lots of back biting and stabbing usually started by the production managers(its a family thing) H&S is a joke,as and when it suits. Group never hear about half the things that go on as its covered up and swept under the carpet. It's a real shame that the very few decent guys there that care about the product have to continue to put up with it.

Hard work is rewarded, good rates of pay. Plenty of overtime with good overtime pay. A good selection of courses for the right people who show they are willing to learn.

Although the company is going through major change the poisonous culture still exists on the Factory floor who resist any change. There are ample opportunities to progress.

the wage at Ibstock brick was very good, although it was very unorganised quite a lot of the time. There was a lot to do in a short space of 2 hours. Overall I would say it’s an ok place to work

The people that work on the shop floor are brilliant and hard working. The job itself is enjoyable. However there has been no stable management since I have worked there and with each new set of management the respect for the hard working people seems to get lower. The money is not up to par for the skills required to do the job and the dangers involved with the work.

You are never of the phones and this can create difficulty in completing work that requires attention. You therefore need to be able to prioritise and work long hours just to keep up with the workflow.
Pros
Small Team
Cons
On the job training

Area over doubled within 2 months of starting the role and not given much choice but to take it (even though 2 months was the total sum of experience in the role). New managers wanted more paperwork than previously meaning every meeting notes had to be duplicated in different formats.
