Production in Chard, Somerset
on 22 May 2021
Production area. This job is like working in a 25 degree heated gym. It's very hot and very heavy work. Very constant work. It's suits a young man in his 20s with no gf or kids. Who wants to work any hours and doesn't care what the hours are. From one week to the next.If that's you, you can earn decent money here. As there is lots and lots of work available. They give you the rota on a Thursday for your hours the following week. So not much time to plan. They have a clock machine on your breaks.The heaviest task is turning cheese. Flipping 20kg trays in the air for about 4 hours a day. All tasks there are heavy and cause pain to your back.They can put you on any shift each week and even make you work saturday morning. Normally you will work until 730pm/830pm a few times a week. If there is a machine problem they expect you to stay on to catch up. Everyone signs a flexible contract to be available Monday to Friday for 40 hours work. Hourly rate is decent. The overtime pay is very good. But they try their best to only give people 40 hours. So they don't pay time and a half. There is a huge turnover of staff as people normally last 1 day as its so hot and heavy and walk out. So normally they are short of staff each day. Avoid if you don't like to work in heavy hot environments and you don't want your back to hurt for an hour after work each night.They provide some free cheese and dairy related items. For the staff from time to time. The staff on the shopfloor are all decent guys.

Avoid at all costs.
Job is very heavy in very hot condition. Over 25 degrees for at least 8 hours of your day. In the main task you need to turn/lift/flip ova cheeses in 15kg plus trays. It's required to lift around 1600 trays of 15kg per day. Plus other tasks all in hot conditions and all have wear and tear on the back for the remaining 5/6 hours of your shift. My back hurt lots too much. Your expected to stay on if you havi delays for an hour after your rota time. The only give you your rota for the next week on a Friday morning. The can rota you on any hours they like Monday to Friday. As you sign flexible contract Monday to Fridays. They don't do shift work. They have a clock machine on the break time. They do give some nice cheeses for free for the staff sometimes. Hourly rate was good and overtime rate was good. I would recommend job for young person who want to make lot of money. I leave because work was too heavy for my back.

Stay clear.
Lubborn cheese is not a nice place to work. You are pushed until breaking point. Site manager is horrible Feel like your working on a chain gang. Not nice atmosphere.

Packing, High Risk
I am not satisfied with the work, because there is dishonest, not fair, humiliation, using people for hard work, letting people leave home that there is no work, constantly dismissing that there is no job.

The typical day in this job I could disribe as cooperation people and departments follow by plan. I learned a cuple of thing in this place as set up a some of the packing machine and specification of product which is mould cheese. There is mamagment staff as well which organize the job for other members of team. The company employs about 60 employees from few countries. The hardest part of the job is when we have a problem with comunication, the most enjoyable when reach our the goals
