It's a job not for everyone, you need to make sure you can live with 4 on 4 off roster with a 3 shift rotation. The people you work with and been there longer than you seem to ALWAYS think they are above you & will try and control you, also they think the factory can't run without them and the world will stop turning if they weren't there. The real problem with Fonterra is the Management and of course relying on cows producing milk and we all know we are in a drought and it's getting worse. Even if your full-time or part-time even casual your future is not safe. Seeing perfectly hard working full-time employees been there for over 4 years let go for the smallest problems with no warnings or talking to just let go. There HR is extremely strick . They make you feel you can move up, but they make it very clear after you've been put on full-time that you're only a dairy operative. Don't waste your time there management is disgraceful. Seen 4 different kinds of management changes while working there , that's 4 guys moved on or different job. Like I said if they d if they need to make cuts they just do it, no warnings.
