The Premier Food is well-known and established big brand of large company including famous traditional food producers and their factories.Has a strategy to achieve stable solid reputation and brand.Creating good environment.Be a responsible and fair employer. The following review is therefore for Ashford site only!The factory is sadly maintaining weak working culture within the site. Weak behaviour bad habits and sometimes unprofessional relations between employees are still present unfortunately.Personal relations involved in promoting employees. The employees there are, for that reason, not treated fairly and justly.That is creating unhealthy competition. Decreasing employees' moral and satisfaction resulting mainly in theirs lower confidence.What the most driving valuable people with potential away.However the site employs some dedicated individuals providing excellent work in professional manner.Most important manage to keep maintaining a reputable and high standard of safety.As an employer offering a training and educational programs.
Pros
High standard H&S, Company benefits, Training opportunities, Own canteen
Cons
Incompetent decisions, Slow problem solving, Weak working culture

Was very unprofessional workplace, managers with no leadership and do the bare minimum. Would often come in to work with no plan or work to do and employees stand around for hours doing nothing. No continuous improvement strategies or processes to improve the company. Very behind company lacking in leadership, training and work ethic.

The people I worked with were great to be with, helpful and considerate. Management team always looking out for you always made sure you took your breaks and that you were ok and confident with what you were doing.It's a pity my contract came to an end.
Pros
Regular breaks, relaxing place to work.
Cons
3 shift pattern

Very inbred company, far more likey to suceed if you have a relative or friend in the management or office roles rather then if you are talented. Middle management have more faces then a second hand watch shop.

Not a great place to work, the team leaders i worked with weren't very nice people and are forever getting complained about. The common consensus is it used to be a good place to work but not now. Staffline are the worst agency i have worked for too with no sympathy for your personal circumstances.
Pros
Local
Cons
Line leaders

The management never heard of mental health. The main laboratory manager is a borderline sociopath. She is very successful and good at her job but terrible with people. The end result of my stay has left me with depression which took me a year to get it under control. Working hours are great, 9-5, bank holiday off, occasional over-time here and there.
Pros
Pool and Table tenis available on site during lunch.
Cons
The current laboratory manager.

Premier Foods is a decent place to work. The canteen is cleaning, an the supervisors are fair. The one problem is that its not regular work. It would be better if you got long termtermwork from them. There is plenty of overtime assell.

Appalling place run on thuggery and threats. You're expected to be on call to do overtime with zero notice usually as a result of lazy bullying managers not being up to the job of actually making the place run. A real throwback to the 50s
Pros
Short commute
Cons
None

The best place ever! Great work conditions and friendly, helpful operators all across the factory. Management support is at the high standard, the same as food health and safety.The most enjoyable part of the job is that we are all like a family!
Pros
Free breakfast vouchers, cinema tickets, reward money.
Cons
some ares a bit hot to work during the summer.

The people are good, they really do look after each other. Management could be better, a lot of abuse of power. Work is repetitive but isn't too bad. Training could be improved in a lot of areas. Fairly easy work most of the time. Decent canteen facilities, good company schemes too.
Pros
Friendly Staff/Flexible Working
Cons
Management/Lack of Training

The workload is very fast paced, long shifts of standing and packing cakes - though frequent break cycles and suitable smoking area. Over-time always available and is often offered the same day or a few days in advance. Management a little sloppy (especially in early morning shifts or when there are newcomers). Very little job security but worth the money and experience. A few friendly faces: not a lot of time to interact with others outside of your shift/break cycle group.
Pros
Salary, Over-time
Cons
Management, Progression
