Really enjoyed my time working for Fonterra as a temp. Staff are friendly and positive. Everyone is easy to get along with. The interview process took a while but I would go back to Fonterra any day for work.

A typical day at work sometimes hard going but some times pretty good and sometimes the pressure was a little intense when things went wrong they went wrong without that pressure the job would have been really great environment to work in,experienced a lot technology was certainly there and then some when you couldn't figure it out it was a little to quite a bit too much but the people you worked with was awesome
Pros
free lunches sometimes you got things for free perks of the job
Cons
possibly when I lost my job it didn't end up well then

My favourite job!! Had a blast here money was great , loads of benefits that I really enjoyed. They not only look after you but your family as well. My daily job would consist of packing ice cream . Would vary , we'd be in teams of 5,12 and others. THreading ice cream containers or cones into the machines it'll then come through to the other side where another team would pack into boxes or small packaging. Fast pace packing, routine checks and thorough cleaning throughout the factory. Wearing protective gear as well for health and safety
Pros
Excellent pay/free ice cream to eat during work hours
Cons
No fans in factory

On day shift would arrive at 4.20 am talk with team go in to towers at 4.40 for change over about 5ish one of the three team members would go change water in footbaths and do visual checks once completed would do rotation with over team workers until cheese finished then we would all start our cleaning regimine usually about 3 hrs then prepare for cheese to start up process the cheese until nightshift came for change over. When on nights I would arrive at same time except in evening do change over then we would get into rotation right through the night until morning. I learned heaps while I was there logging bag numbers into computer different cheeses and how to handle them. I got on well with the management team and co-workers Stirling is a small plant so is imperitive to gel well. The hardest part of the job would be lifting bag cartiges into tower and learning while processing the cheese. The most enjoyable would be the team you work with have lots of laughs and support.
Pros
four days on four off
Cons
long hours

Usually busy but learned a lot of skills relevant for the job. Those that manage the branch where i work i believe are the best who not only know their duties, but also work along side in a very uplifting manner that make all satisfied.
We, together with all employee always work as a team. Great people.

It was hard at first to work in the chiller but, now is not a problem. Have enjoyed every part of the job.
