Nice team to work with

Indeed featured review

The most useful review selected by Indeed
I enjoyed my time with Mission Foods, the technical and operations team are leaded by people who know their job. Long time employees are happy with their job(you can find people working there for 20 years).I had a very good team to manage and each one of the QAs were awesome to deal with.

you are given no trainning at all but are expected to know how to do your job perfectly and when you cant you are turned into a verbal punching bag by pretty much everyone around you

There's nothing fun about working for mission

I worked here for 19 years if this is anonymous then why do you want me to tell you anything more ok it was great to start with but the last 5 years was terrible. HR department have no idea how to help their employees, and never will i feel sorry for all the packing and production staff


4 on 4 off on wrap lines


Very strict team leaders

The worst place ever

The worst place ever, management is incompetent, job is horrible you standing all 12 hours shift(I worked night shift) in one spot, pay rate is a joke, you can't leave this place even on your break so You are there like in some prison I strongly not recommend

terrible agency no training given to new staff

there is pretty much no training given to new people most people are miserable working there but can't afford to quit the pay sounds good but really is not close to good enough for the amount of strain the actual work puts on a parsons body and the agency dose absolutely nothing to make anyone's life any easier in fact in my experience they made life harder which makes people walk out of the job i would not recommend working here

Burned out

Would be a great job if the automation Worked. When it goes down which is regularly, one person ends up having to do the work of three people. Ended up hurting my back.

Bad Agency, Long Hours, Tired Staff

I was initially tricked/coerced into going here; I didn't apply and was invited as part of a few days course I was on, in Food Production, which I did to fill in some spare time; before I knew it I was been presented with a contract to sign. I thought it was just part of the course to learn some practical examples and have a tour of a food manufactuer.The agency were quite stringent with their times to set the weeks' shifts, with only around 2 hours per week allocated by the agency for this. I was too busy to call during those particular 2 hours. The Agencys' communication was poor, as they were expecting me at work at a time in which I told them twice I was not available for, and therefore would not be able to work that shift.Only 12 hour shifts available during inconvenient times for me. Training was not provided so you needed to learn on the job. Was allocated several 15 minute breaks, which were useful as the factory floor was quite tough on feet.Was physically and mentally exhausting and after one shift was clear that it was not a sustainable job for me.Hopefully things have changed since I worked there. The factory experience was poor as management didn't seem to have time to support staff and the agency was exceptionally poor.I must say as one positive, the staff were hardworking and supportive of each other, which really helped me get through; the camaraderie was exemplary in a situation which seemed difficult for all.


Several Breaks offered Zero-Hours Contract


All of the above

People are kind

Every day is educational and the staff are friendly. The job can be very rewarding if you put the time into it but you can also just do a very basic job

Not the worst company to work for

A typical day at work starts about 6.50 PM near clock in device where a member of management team will assign you to your daily position. You could be expected to do any work at warehouse (packing/ stacking / warehouse /mixing dough/ measuring seasoning or mixing preservatives) depends what you was trained for.


4 days ON/OFF work


No overtimes, no bank holiday pay, sick pay

working 12-hour night shifts packing tortillas and fold boxes make sure they are up to date ensuring that stock levels were maintained and restock whenever they were needed (sauces, seasonings, tortillas and pitas) having a sense of team work (whenever someone needed my help or needed to be replaced, I offered myself to do their task) having to adapt to doing a repetitive action for 12 hours straight being able to work under pressure


good money


repetitive action

Active Environment

A busy environment with quite a lot of advancement opportunities for anyone who is willing to work for it and take the job seriously. There is also a good chain of command.

Productive work place

Mission Food - company where I grew up. In 5 years time I learned many things. Like operate different machines, feeling up the paperwork, understand where are good quality product where are not and many other things. Work as a team or individually. As well I made good relationships with always helpful management, colleagues. Also, I had difficult days, because of machines issues, but that days just gave to me more knowledges and experience. I enjoyed to be the part of that team.
