Working at the meat works is a challenging environment and ruthless environment. The behaviour of generational staff who work there are very vocal and like to criticize ability without providing the care and support of a new employee. The experience of staying in one place without the opportunity to advance and grow is disheartening and ways heavy on ones self and presence when working. The environment is hard labour on the body both physically and mentally where workers can easily become sick moving into the different climates when working in a chilled room to room temperature. However, I have learned many new skills and have worked with some genuine good guys.

Labourer (Former Employee) - Moerewa
a days work feels a lot harder when you deserve more money for the job title and it's demands. its disheartening how management and staffs treat new employees however i did learn new skills there and got to know some genuine people. however the ratio to good to bad staffs is more bad than good. join the union when working there for better conditions and pay as affco will try short cut.
Pros
none
Cons
short staffed causing long hours

Meat Processor (night shift) (Current Employee) - Feilding, Manawatu-Wanganui
The work itself is repetitive and frustrating but the job payes well. If you don't mind working in a cold room or standing on your feet for long periods of time and can handle the pain it's a decent enough job.
