Many a opportunity for personal development exist in a very multicultural environment. Personally the position I chose was not suited for me. Change management systems should be looked at.
Pros
Good support at all levels
Cons
Communiction through the various business stream could improve.

I will describe the work in Inghams as a good experience as you learn each day something new and in a typical day i start the communication skill with my staff to talk about what we did yesterday and what we will do today to get everything done and all the work is a corporation work between the staff .
Pros
Cheap staff sales
Cons
normal hours

Enjoyed the work colleagues I gained but the management is very very poor. They treat their workers like robots instead of people and safety is not always at the forefront of their concerns as it should be

Great place to work. I learnt a lot about OSH practices in a food processing environment. Learnt that if you're good at what you do It's hard to progress onto other shifts as they can't afford to loose you especially on the afternoon/nightshifts. The hardest part was the commute, an hour each way. The best part was having great friends.
Workplace culture okay, everyone supported each other
Pros
Cheap lunches, good staff buying privileges
Cons
My position was really physical and hard on the hands/wrist

No two days are the same which suits me as I like the variety of problems that could present itself in many shapes or forms.

I have learned that there are more than one way of doing the same thing - convincing management of this have proven to be difficult in many cases.


I get along with all my co-workers and would like to think the feeling is mutual.


The hardest part of my job is sometimes to accept that certain things will not change.


The most enjoyable part of my job is that I have a good balance between office work and hands-on work.
Pros
Staff sales
Cons
Frustrations due to lack of "thinking out of the box"

Very busy. Rosters for staff drawn up. Orders for product requirements adjusted every hour. Staff directed to product as orders came in. Marination closely monitored as KFC very strictly controlled. Meat orders for marination to be sorted. Promotions need top priority. Staff training cards monitored and signed off weekly for new employees as safety and quality big requirements.
Have a good concept of HACCP and Quality control issues as these played a big part of my job. I obtained Qualification in First Time Management. This was a course All Team Leaders and QCs were given the opportunity of. Was a very intense course over 3 months dealing with Management of staff.

Had a fantastic bond with my stall and Manager. Had issues with one member high up the ladder which is why I left this job after 13 years.

Hardest part of the job would have to be when we had huge orders for a product and had to do huge hours to forfill the orders. Also was very intense MAF audits for KFC which I was involved in

Team playing and contented staff the main pleasure you can obtain at the end of the day
Pros
Great Medical amd Superanuation benefits
Cons
Did not have any other than One staff member which made my decision to leave
