Cleaner (Former Employee) –  Tauranga, Bay of Plenty26 June 2017
Clean throughout the factory and machines.

what did i learn? how to clean a factory and how the factory works to get the muscles out.

Management was also good. They explained things easy and was always organised each day.

Hardest part of the job was bending over a lot to clean the factory and would be hard on my back.

Best Part of the job? Working with others around me and being active.
Pros
Meeting new people
Cons
Back getting sore often and smelling like muscles by the end of the night.
