Fonterra Employee Review
pretty good place to work
After shown safety procedures of certain jobs in factory, you were left with co-workers most of the day to do own work, so learning different jobs became easier, as workers were easy to get along with. Management were always on hand if needed. The hardest part of the job would have been putting on p.p.e gear. Enjoyable part of the job was probably pay day.
Meeting good people
I learnt how to work in a team environment. Met people of all races, some good and some not so good. Back breaking job, especially lifting 25kg and twisting every 10 - 20 seconds. I enjoyed going home as soon as the shift finished. I worked 3 different shifts; (8am - 4pm), (4pm - 12am), (12am - 8am). This was called 3 - 8's. Three shifts and an eight hourly job. What I did enjoy the most, was working in nearly every department of the plant. I loved working around different area's as this was good exercise for myself and learning lots of new skills for each department.
