Assistant Manager in London, Greater London
on 6 April 2022
Good team members around you make this a fun and enjoyable place to work. A fast-paced atmosphere at times mean that the job can be demanding. Always good team work to help each other out where needed.
Production Operative in Leek

Management have no clue at all lines are suppose to be run by operators standards but are ignored when you raise it they don't comment or try to pass it off. pay is bad that its not worth even going in for. Location is awful in the middle of a town that no.one in stoke really would travel for and if your face fits (favourites) you get places. Workers treated like dog body's they say they value their SOP and health and safety but don't put it in practice. no training to understand the role. They only good thing is getting out of there I've never known a place so mis managed in all my life its run like a joke house not a production site they even treat their zone leaders like muck off your shoe when it's them on the front line and know how everything works.

Hard work and stressful
Not a good place to work , you can progress to running a machine in a few months around £ 11.70 ph . It’s a place where if you are related to the management you will rise very quickly, and bypass those hard workers who have been there for years , over the last 12 months they have been struggling to keep people as the pay as not keep up with over firms , most left for jcb . If you are a hard worker they will take advantage of you , management don’t have a glue what they are doing half the time and you will get moved from one place to another.

A range of different jobs available, and the canteen supplies great food.
The day went really quickly, and there's a wide variety of different job roles available. I got on with everyone there really well, the people who I worked with were great.I enjoyed my time working at Ornua.
QA in Ledbury, Herefordshire

Stressful experience with little support from management.
The manager who might have been supportive was on maternity leave. I accept i was not right for the job as i wasn't up to carrying out 2 dozen tasks at once or making managerial decisions, nor could i overcome the language barrier nor could i actually do my job around 50% of the time as the limited workspace available would be taken up by staff from another area. Several staff members treated me as though i was just something dropped on the floor, however others were lovely, including the lady who had a very limited time to try to train me up, and the young lady i worked with. You need to have complete and utter confidence in yourself as you may have no-one higher up to support you.
