Lazy undereducated trainers

The trainers struggle themselves to do anything with troubleshooting..The team leaders are even worse as they have no clue either.They confuse trainees and blame them later.

great place to be at

Danones a good company to work for, great people and the staff as well, I call it my second home. I try to leave, being there for 8 years going onto 9, there are more opputunitys out there. But because the pay will be going fortnightly, automatic payments will be also changed.
