Do not work here
Merchandiser/Safety representative (Former Employee) –  Tauranga, Bay of Plenty15 November 2019
Worked here for over two years as a merchandiser. The company do not care their staff they only care about the dollar signs. They have a very high staff turnover rate and would rather dispose of good workers instead of paying them what they deserve.

Unfair treatment to me
Trainee baker (Former Employee) –  Christchurch, Canterbury27 May 2019
I disliked working for gwf as where I was working the management was not friendly and did not know how to communicate in a friendly manner. It was a toxic work environment and I was getting bullied by management and coworkers and I was never treated equall to the other coworkers.
Pros
Free bread

Good people to work for across the company. Management message to think outside the square and respects each others cultures.
Data Entry Supervisor/Administrator (Former Employee) –  Otahuhu,Manukau City, Auckland.12 February 2013
Typical day at work starts at work 8.30 am, goodmorning to the team. Check on calendar for any meetings.
Log in to computer system and check emails and phone messages follow it up.Check work coming in and follow up work not recieved,
check with team what data have been entered.
Check customer credit complaints and follow up.
I have learnt that you must know how to manage time, so are
able to priortise and therefore able to complete task set out.
Team work is important and able to delegate to team members,
I find the hardest part of the job is chasing linehaul and
truck driver for paper work but persistance it pays off.
The most enjoyble part of the job is able to comminicate with all staffs across the board of the company from floor to management to learn and respect other cultures to come together as a team and
not individuals.
Pros
managers show of appreciation by shouting morning tea and christmas dinner
Cons
manager expectation is high and must perform according to quarterly perfomance review
