Pleasant work roles, made unpleasant.
Staff would help each other wherever possible due to how busy it was. Most shop floor staff were caring, supportive and professional - I limit myself to extending only opposite regards about management.

Management micr manage and expect far too much. I am, and have always been a good hard worker but they had a go at you for asking a colleague for advise as they assumed you weren't working. I left as management almost gave me a breakdown. Doctor signed me off and told me no to go back for the sake of my health
