I've worked in quite a few production roles,but this is without a doubt the best one I've come across. I'm confused why a small few ex employees complain about this company, there is a lot of support for the health and wellbeing of employees, a very competitive salary,excellent training,there is a variety of skills to learn, and also great tasting snacks!
Salary, training, opportunities, management.
Rotaring shifts, if they are personally not for you.
Rotating shifts for the most but this does depends which area you work in. You can plan around these I find. Overtime optional. Busy site producing some great snacks. Team work surrounds the values of the site however like everywhere you get good and bad, you choose how you want to be. Week 1 is spent with the training team and then you go into your areas's with a line Buddy. Great benefits, Holidays, pension, pay, staff shop, give aways, free zoo passes. Opportunities to get involved with many other teams, V&B's , Quality , safety and so on. Progression available if you are prepared to put into the work to get it. Currently going through changes with investment into the site.
Pay, Pension, Free Zoo passes, staff shop, subsidised canteen
Can get hot in summer, cold in the winter. You smell of flavour when you leave for the day
A mixed bunch of people, some fabulous people. Hard work does pay off here. However proceed with caution, when they are done with you, they really are done with you. Bit of a click. Rely only on yourself After saying that good pay and good welfare facilities. Opportunity to develop.
Good pay and good welfare facilities
I worked for KP for around 13 years. I started by sweeping the floor in the frying room, and ended up as a Raw Materials & Process manager through sheer hard work and determination to make a career at the company until I was made redundant in October 2003. Unfortunately, there are one or two managers who would benefit from a man management training course as some had very bad attitudes,but overall, most were OK. Opportunities to progress were there when I was,so it was up to the individual to how far they progressed. I would return there in a heartbeat. I could still run someone through a full production process 17 years after being made redundant.
Good canteen. Excellent team work. Some Managers know their stuff
High sickness levels putting pressure on other team members.
it was a good job the work was not to hard or easy and everyone who worked there was a grate help I would recommend working here to anyone and if given the chance I would love to work here again.
payed for lunch and brakes
gets very hot in the oven room
I arrange all procedures on frying room packing cleaning and I need to keep health and safety procedure during time during production area.and I have responsibility for quality of product.and all procedure according the plan of management.
On the surface seems the best company plenty of mental health first aiders but why? The reason I can see is working in certain departments at KP is very stressful. The work load is way to much and you are expected to get it done even if it means working at home. The home life balance is not good . A job working in the shop floor is probably the best place to work as good breaks and staff to help out although getting a holiday is difficult
We want to help you find great companies. Help us be the best!

Fantastic place to work, the whole organisation is going through a massive culture and system change which is focusing everybody on adding value. We have an amazing leadership team who are dedicated to taking our business to the stars and a first class workforce who are embracing the changes, very exciting times.
