A very fast paced industry working long hours. Great salary as a forklift operator however supervisory roles were well under paid. A genuine opportunity to advance in the company both upwards and sideways. Fonterra open other doors through Emergency Response training, networking with other employees from other sites on various projects and social events outside the work place. The company also offered great health insurance for me and my family and an impressive superannuation scheme. Overall a secure and reputable company to work for.

Most of the managers here like to show off their power rather than helping people to get the work done. As a new staff, you can easily be a target for the "higher level" people giving you a very hard time (such as judge you wrongly, bully you, etc.) at the beginning.
