High paced work with attention to detail.
weigh station assistant (Former Employee) –  Riverleigh Road, Hamilton30 June 2019
This was an excellent job with great people, full time work and weekends off. They provided training that allowed me to reach level 3 within a short time and a good pay rate. It was fast paced and required attention to detail as any mistakes affected the results of testing. It required computer skills and also physical ability to process milk samples quickly by hand, and heavy lifting.
Pros
Night shift allowance, overtime rates, good pay rates, training.
Cons
Seasonal.

Low paid, terrible culture

Workplace culture is not allowing staff to talk to each other. Low pay with no extra rewards. There is some terrible managers. There are some nice workers trying to keep things going.
Most enjoyable part of the day is leaving.

Great Work/Life Balance
Customer Experience Representative (Current Employee) –  Hamilton City, Waikato29 October 2017
(Livestock Improvement Corporation) LIC is an amazing company to work for. They provide the best possible service to their customers and treat staff well. They provide ample opportunity for staff to both self learn and attend company training sessions and opportunity to move up within the company itself. The culture and atmosphere within LIC is so amazing that you feel like you are working with a group of close friends. The work is very challenging and sometimes demanding, but there is ample support provided to get you through any tough jobs.
Pros
Social Club. On-site pool, bar, gym, and tennis/vollyball court. Subsidised Health Insurance

Its a great place to work although its only seasonal and the wage not that great
Weigh station assistant (Current Employee) –  Hornby, Christchurch10 August 2012
We help out with the herd testers preparing samples for testing. I have learnt a lot with what exactly is tested and how tested. Most of the management team are great and help out when they can and had a great bunch of co-workers and in the off season still remain good friends. The hardest part of the job was standing on a concrete floor with rubber mats for 8 or more hours a day!!! The most enjoyable was although was the same thing every day was seeing what the different herds were coming in and trying to improve your performance from the previous day.
Pros
was seasonal and good hours and overtime
Cons
seasonal and wage wasnt that great
