Indeed featured review

The most useful review selected by Indeed
There is a culture of persecution by HR and certain manager/people of influence They say they are concerned mental health of employees but only when it suits them They are trying to address the problem but the culture of middle management makes the task impossible as they will only get distorted information from them Join at your own risk as the situation is still on going

Pros

Some cheaper subsidies food

Cons

Very dirty environment

It's ok

Little to no training just expected to know what your doing. No real support and your a number and as a company they really don't care about you. Saw 10 people come and go in the 10 months I was there. People don't get their right pay.

Pros

On site canteen, friendly staff, on site parking

Cons

Long hours, dirty

Don't be fooled

The job application says they pay you for breaks...this is a blatant lie, we aren't paid for breaks. Tip for management: the reason we are short of staff and have high turnover is because we are paid pittance for a stressful job.

Pros

Good work life balance...only if you you works days

Cons

Low pay, little chance of advancement or training

Rewarding place to work that is continually improving

A rewarding place to work, that continually evolves to meet consumer and customer demands. The site has improved its culture and working practices significantly over the last 8 years or so.

Awful company

You report things to management and they just ignore it or are very dismissive of your concerns. They say they care but they really don't care about their employees at all, they have a very high turn over of staff because of this

Pros

None

Cons

Long hours

Production and fun workplace

It would be grt experience to work in multicultural organization like 2 sisters. Is is good to work with other countries people. People can try different jobs there like as production operative, label checker, senior operative, line leader, packing, Dispatches etc. There are also availability of different structure pattern like 3 days on 3 days off, 6-2 and 2.30 to 10.30,6-6, 7-7, 5-5 etc. You will enjoy when work there. Managers are also good. They try to solve problems of people. You can take 28 days paid holidays annually and you can also work as a flexible. You can take the days of your choice with flexible contract. It is better for housewives and mothers whose children small to work there. Staff is also very supportive during Induction. They give clearly instructions to candidates. It would be great opportunity to work there and starting career.

Pros

Free parking

Cons

Long hours Saturday and Sunday

Toxic culture

The pay at 2Sisters is good but having worked there I think it's to compensate for the toxicity of the majority of staff. I had a fantastic Supervisor who did his job properly much to the dislike of some that then took steps to ruin his hard work and good reputation out of jealousy and fear of being exposed for not doing theirs correctly. I had many problems doing my job due to the same member(s) of staff destroying my efforts and rapport with others. When I made complaints to upper management due to the fact they ignored my Supervisor when he told them, I was also not taken seriously,it was clear that nothing was going to be done. H.R could not comprehend the severity of my complaint and I honestly can't believe some of the staff are even remotely qualified to work in that department, it was a joke!It appears that the company prefer to bury their heads in the sand, ignoring problems that good hard working staff raise, they favour and side with manipulating members regardless of who it ends up pushing out. There is no recognition,encouragement or progression for good members of staff doing their jobs properly, and no consequences for those who set out to tear down the hard work of those people.

Pros

Pay

Cons

Toxic Environment

Not recomended

It's not my dream job, most of the people at the working area doesn't speak English, and if they do they are very rude. They keep paying less than they should, they say "we gonna fix it next mont" but they can be like that for all year. Basically they don't care about their workers.

Pros

No one

Cons

Wrong payments

Horrendous, aweful, DON’T DO IT !

As an engineer, be prepared for a rough time. Management have no clue. Expect to repair things using fresh air as there are no spares. You are the lowest in the chain, operators have more say than you, if you can understand them. (95% non speaking english). Production above H&S. new guys are alienated. No overalls for 12 months. Weekly pay instead of salary. No structure. No appreciation, no respect. Frankly the WORST place ive ever had the misfortune to work. Horrible.

Pros

Free meal on your Bday. Free chicken at xmas.

Cons

Wverything else
