Fun place to work
Fly limited was an advertising company with one director and no shareholders. Flexible in nature and good relationship with the director. Easy going and fun place with a small team.

exceptional work place provided pool table
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
Pros
we get free food from the warehouse
Cons
long hours not enough pay

Fun workplace
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.
Pros
shared lunches, breaks
Cons
long hours
