Machine Operator and Packer in Oakham, Rutland
Years ago you were treated with respect not any more you are just a numberI wouldn't recommend anyone to take a job there to many clicky people . Everyone is related and if your not then it's not worth taking a job there. They dont advertise jobs that are available they just give to people that they like which is totally unfair

Easy job. Nice place to work.As far as factory jobs go - it's a good one. Everyone I've met has been friendly and welcoming. I've never felt under any undue pressure. If you're unsure of anything, there's always plenty of people who are happy to help.Best part of the job, is how laid back things are; and there's plenty of overtime available if you want to make some more money.Worst part is it can get very monotonous and boring, and you can't listen to head phones or the radio. If you could, I think a lot more operators would be up for doing overtime. Can't understand the negative reviews though. The place is fine.

Shame because it could be good. The very best in 'mod cons', unfortunately governed by short sighted directors that pay 'yes' men to run It for them. If someone they like is not up to the job, rather than getting in someone else, they throw more money/resources at them. They have brought in new blood to try to water down the incestuous workforce already there, but insist they work within too many restraints therefore they are not able to do their job effectively. Company values are posted everywhere however you are not encouraged to adhere to them, indeed the culture is one of blame and recriminations rather than true teamwork. Everyone is forced to throw teammates under the bus rather than take responsibility for mistakes. When work is plentiful its ok, when it's not they remove the operators. Plenty of people at middle level that ought to go first as they are incompetent at their jobs. In fact, this is the first warehouse I've known where the manager has never worked in that environment before, yet makes all major decisions then wonders why warehouse costs so much in terms of missing stock, lost deliveries etc. Not a clue!! One of the protected ones though. Indeed, a lot of the long standing team leaders/managers are bully's and pick on the young workers because no one holds them to account.

Good company.After reading the two other reviews I have to object. I have been here a few years now and it is a decent place to work. There is a new boss that has done some long needed work getting the old Skool lazy people to pull their weight - which is probably the people that are complaining - but it has made life much better for everyone else in the place. I can’t fault it really
