That was my entry to retail and fmcg environment and I was pleased that coming from a versatile background I was able to open new dimension for senior management in terms of effective reporting.

Very Friendly and diverse place with multi cultural ethnic groups. Management is decent. Most enjoyable part of the work place is working alongside my colleagues and gaining new skills etc. I wasnt given perm for my time there.
good place to work at, maybe need to fix the management. Great people to work with, trying not break or ruin any product which is hard to do, most enjoyable job is finishing the orders on time but sometimes doing overtime get more money.

Foodstuffs is proudly 100% New Zealand owned and operated organisation, made up of three regional co-operatives. As a company they are a true Kiwi success story, having grown from humble beginnings to become one of New Zealand's largest and most thriving businesses.
working at food stuffs was really good for me to experience work in a food warehouse. it was always busy but good busy because everything was always under control because we had reliable and hard working supervisors. everyone at work got along which made work easy and more enjoyable as i became better at my job because of this. the hardest part of my job was unloading containers because the product was heavy. we had about three to four breaks depending on how long we worked each day. breaks were pretty fun as we played pool table to pass the time
Day goes fast when busy Learnt how to pick and pack palletise drive the hoist vaules stc mangement was good there was a family oritated hardest part was not making mistakes overall enjoy my 2years there.
Work was enjoyable and I looked forward to each day.The supervisors and management were more then helpful ensuring that I was a capable worker who showed initiative. There was nothing hard about the job, It was an awesome place to work and would love to work there again if given the chance.
management was understanding, supportive, ensured i was trained at a high level
this company had no cons as they were very supportive of all their workers
Typical day at work would be picking and packing. We were taught the health and safety rules, how to drive a train and how to palletize. My co-workers were friendly, funny, enjoyable and easy to work with. The hardest part of the job would probably have to be stacking cases. The most enjoyable part would be driving the trains and being in a friendly environment.
