Great place to work if you want to just knuckle down and get on with the job. It can be very fast paced and you have to be able to work well under pressure or else the kiwis will go everywhere. Staff and colleagues are very friendly and will gladly help if you are struggling. The job itself is very repetitive and the days can be long so I couldn’t work there permanently. However, it’s a good place to work if you are looking for work over a short period of time to earn a bit of cash for your travels.
Pros
Good people
Cons
Long days

Seasonal work provided. Have to work for bad shift timings. Not a very good workplace. During the main season, the shift starts at 7.30 am and finishes at 6 p.m. The management is not good is providing effective management roles to skilled people.

It was a beautiful stage of work, where we shared many hours of work with colleagues, bosses and coordinators. It was hard work but fun thanks to the good work environment.

Colleagues are fun and helpful. However they don't really treat WHV workers well and thus culture of discrimination does exist. However, the HR office staff are very helpful and efficient in their work.

This is a very busy workplace, I need to be quick and active. I've learned that packing kiwi fruit is not that easy. Hardest part for me is when I carry boxes of kiwi fruit the whole day.

My day would start by making sure the line ws set up ready for the stackers and once they arrive to have a morning meeting, once we start the day i would make sure that the team are doing the work correctly and if there was any problems i would help them out. the most enjoyable part of the job was meeting new people. i learned how to motivate a team.

East Pack was amazing, it was like family when I was working there. Everyone got along with each other and had fun. Lunch was free sometimes. The two managers for the coldstore from dayshift loved me a lot even thou I worked on nightshift. The three managers from nightshift also loved me because I was always willing to help out with doing other tasked and jobs on site.
Pros
free lunch, able to listen to music, amazing team and group
