My experience at Countdown Pukekohe South has been both enjoyable and very tough. Nearly every day i have to do overtime as there is so much to do in my shift and i have do it by myself. Management is OK. I get on with them pretty well and as long as I do what needs to be done they're happy. The workplace in the bakery at Countdown Pukekohe South is alright. We have good days and bad days at work but we get the job done. The hardest part of the job is trying to do the huge work load we have in our hours as we all want to go home but we all know we need to get the job done. The best part of the job is when we learn from the management that we beat the budget for the week and the year before because it tells us that for all the problems we have we are still doing a good job.
