50% of staff are nice other half are polish. 🤷♀️ I met some really nice people there (some worst ones too). If you come there with permanent contract you'll be fine, but agency staff are treated poorly at RB. People work 2-3 years (some longer) to get a permanent contract. Being called "temps" are just normal there, make you feel like easy replaceable. Work is repetitive and on some packing lines permanent staff use agency staff to do jobs they don't want to do, which gives horrible back pains. Same pay for days, night shifts or weekends. High requirements for the quality, but at the same time pressure to do job faster which gives no other choice than to cut some edges and hope for the best.At the beginning of pandemic company provided free meals and drinks (which was really nice of them). All this point of view are from temp* worker 🧎

Stuck in the 1970's
If working for a company that micro manages, then this is the place for you. I have never in my life experience this level of micro management. The company compass does not translate beyond Senior management. The job was undoubtedly miss sold.

Don’t do it!
Absolutely no progression from a lab worker perspective. Management are rude and patronising. They expect you to do more work than you have the hours for and expect you to work above your pay grade but have no intention of promoting you.
They’ll walk all over you if you let them, and if you’re not getting the shift allowance then the base salary is EXTREMELY poor.

Poor management, poor attitude towards staff
They want dynamic people , but stifle anybody that shows the ability to think for themselves.
The managers abuse the seasonal working hours system, chopping and changing shifts at short notice,
They claim there is a no blame culture, until you do something wrong! If you stand up for yourself you are seen as disruptive. If you challenge anything your considered negative.
The pay is reasonable, but the politics for me made the job impossible.
If your not part of a clique, you will not survive
