Employee in Kendal

Salaries below-market standard, good middle-management
Polar pros and cons to this company. Hard to summarise effectively.All on-site salaries below a certain degree of seniority are drastically below market standards for similar roles, due to constant penny pinching and money-saving ventures. There are a staggering number of resignations for such a small company - which is quite indicative of the working environment. Senior roles are sometimes advertised to the general public, but are often granted internally based on favouritism rather than ability. Middle-management are generally very friendly and supportive, but become less and less so the higher up the chain you go. The CEO is intimately involved with on-site day-to-day operations and puts on a friendly face, but holds himself at an almost clinical distance from his employees and is prone to aggressive outbursts; having such drastic personality changes means that he is painted in a very untrustworthy light. The site itself is outdated. Isolated repairs and improvements do little to combat the fact that the entire site hasn't been properly updated or refitted for decades. Invasive pests and grime can be found everywhere, and the cleaners (what few there are) always seem overwhelmed and overworked.However, there are some good aspects. Free on-site parking, shower facilities, a good breakfast in the canteen, camaraderie between lower-level employees. And of course, the location is beautiful - what better place to live and work than the edge of the Lake District? The location of the site almost makes it easy to forget the deep-rooted flaws of this company. Almost.

Stressful
This place is a joke. I’ve never been treated so bad. Strict with some staff and easy on others. They cut corners on cleaning, hygiene, health & safety and training. They don’t follow their own procedures. Change policies to suit the situation. Blame everyone for the problems that arise from their bad decisions. They also constructively get rid of anyone that will not go along with what they are doing. It’s only a matter of time before they have a serious incident, wether it’s an accident or a customer death. Don’t forget the customers are BABIES some with allergies. I no longer want any part of this company.

Not a good place to work
The job itself is quite tedious and boring. Spend most of the time cleaning down, as production runs vary although are mainly on the small side. Any job here is insecure with terms of employment changing regularly to fit with the Directors increasingly wild demands. Mainly on the "save money" front.Over the last year, the turnover has been quite incredible, with redundancies, walkouts, instant resignations and everything in-between. My advice would be only to take a job here if you're really desperate and you aren't leaving a good secure job in the first place. Once in, you'll be left to your own devices to figure out how to operate machinery or do the actual job they want you to do as training doesn't really happen here...Due to the age of the building (and its location), animal pests are common within. Don't be surprised to see flying ants, rats and black bugs whilst on shift. Speaking of pests, every shift seems to contain a multitude of snitches so watch out.

stressful and unpleasant work environment
the mood from the top down is just doom and gloom, ceo is erratic and unpleasant to most staff if he bothers to speak to them at all. No structure or direction for the company know clear plan no gratitude to staff, payrise and bonuses non existant

Strange place to work
If you really need work and can find nothing else fine, it's money end of the day. The culture is strange, and demands placed Upon staff are unreasonable. Pay is basic, and 20% less than where it needs to be at least. They do like to "penny pinch'". Management is all over the place and what the owner says goes. However, the owner can't actually make his mind up half of the time when he is not being nasty that is. Location is wonderful, surround by green fields and hills.
