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.
High standard H&S, Company benefits, Training opportunities, Own canteen
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.
Manager / team are very friendly and brilliant to work with. You will definitely get exposure and also a great work life balance. Team night outs and social gatherings are great.
Night outs, social events, work, exposure
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.
Regular breaks, relaxing place to work.
3 shift pattern
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.
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.
Pool and Table tenis available on site during lunch.
The current laboratory manager.
We want to help you find great companies. Help us be the best!
Do these reviews help you learn more about working at PREMIER FOODS?
very good, well disciplined if late, learnt new things and good exercise gave me good work spots that fitted me standards and worked around times were i couldn’t be there
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
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!
Free breakfast vouchers, cinema tickets, reward money.
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.
Friendly Staff/Flexible Working
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.
great place to work just unfortunately near impossible to get full time work or a contract from them so you will likely get 2 to 3 months work 2 or 3 times a year which inst ideal
team stimolante. azienda che lascia molta indipendenza al lavoratore. forte senso imprenditoriale. buon posto di lavoro che facilmente concilia vita lavorativa e privata e allo stesso tempo da la possibilita di intraprendere un lavoro interessante.
