- Smooth operation of process and documentation of events.

- Learnt that stress is better handled in a calm productive matter, assess and produce an outcome out of the situation.


- Communication, open and documented.


- Various challenges involving process and management of ancillary service knowing that other departments within the factory a reliant on you.


- Working in a work environment where there seems to be some solidarity within the union.

Very little regard for work culture or the well-being of workers in general. Communication between management and employees had a lot of room for improvement.

Administration Assistant (Former Employee) - Hawera, New Zealand
Great team to work with, learnt a lot of new tools, got very tech savy, always something to do which was what I like.
Got to do a range of work which made the day feel like it went quick.

Good boss.

A nice environment to work in. Felt comfortable to ask questions about stuff I was unsure about.


Positive outcome
Pros
