Long hours, Strenuous work and management needs proper care for the workplace.
General Hand Assistant and Operator (Former Employee) –  Eltham; Taranaki30 July 2013
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.
