Upskilling opportunities huge.

Workplace culture fresh ideas and new skills introduced were welcomed by most but however some staff were unhappy with any changes and preferred that things stay the same

I learnt that growth teamwork good communication are all important

Process Worker (Former Employee) - Taranaki
Overall a very good factory to work. seasonal work. so 10%of laborers are temporary. Difficult to become a permanent employee even after one year.!2 hrs is too long for physical work since it is fast-paced work.
Pros
Moderate wage
Cons
12 Hrs shift
