One of my favourite jobs, mussel grading was fast pace, I enjoyed it, was fun when we tried to beat each other with our % rate. The co-workers were nice and friendly. But the hardest part was the standing.
Pros
Friendly staff, face paced
Cons
Wear the right clothes cause your freeze or sweat.

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.

The day starts really early. When arrive at work, everyone gets to talk and hang out for a while until the start time. You get to interact with people from different countries. This company cares for their workers personal life as well as how well they are working.
Pros
Free lunches
Cons
Long hours

Up on the grading table you would look for wripped or torn mussels and rubbish, and any beards that had to be pulled off. Also I was given the task of cleaning up during the breaks.
Pros
Worderful coworkers
Cons
Hours would often go over 10 hours.
