Fast paced and Challenging but interesting

Employed as an Engineer it was tough work with sometimes having 3 jobs on the go at once. The Engineering team are a true team with each person playing their part to help each other. The rate of learning experienced on the huge range of new and old equipment you work with is like no other place I have worked. I really enjoyed working at Tangerine, the operators were very helpful and knowledgeable (critical as an Engineer), the management were understanding when we were faced with complex breakdown that took extra time to fix (albeit asked for updates every 20min). New machinery being brought in year on year and a good place to take on personal projects. Good canteen with cooked food.

Productive

In the workplace we learnt how to pack sweets an work as an individual as well as a team. The department where i stayed for each shift we would either prep liquorice which involved either winding catherine wheels, making traffic lights or watches. They would be a line of 8 people who would work packing into boxes but you'd chang around every half an hour throughout the shift so you wasn't doing the same for the whole 7 an half hours which is fair an everyone had the chance to work at different stages.

Good work mates

Structured for the week ahead. Would have a weekly plan so you would know what you were doing at the start of the week. Management sometimes didn’t have a realistic expectation of what could be done with the changes in weather.

Pros

Canteen, good holidays and work colleagues

Cons

Unsociable hours

Friendly workforce, nice place to work

In my time with the company I have learned a lot about factory/warehouse procedures and working in a training environment. I find that I am personally left to get on with what I need to do without much management interference which has it good and bad points. Most enjoyable part of the job is the opportunities it has given me to work with a lot of good people.
