Due to the short period of time employed there under an Recruitment Agency, I've come to highly respect the employees as that of the supervisors. I've obtained an immense information and skills of others and that I personally experienced, through verbal instructions and techniques, assistance and cooperation to help each other without asking but by observing and immediate reaction. Although to be honest that the hours were indeed long but every moment were beneficial to that what we did, was of a professional conduct and of excellent details.
Pros
Long hours, Good Company, Approachable Supervisors, A real relaxed working environment.
Cons
Only my Recruitment Agency sending me elsewhere.....So I left that Recruitment Agency.

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.

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

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
