It's all right
The only thing i didn't like about working here is the night shift i took on night shift as a change from working as a Orchard hand but found out that night shift changes the whole body clock.

What i enjoyed about working here is the people you meet & work with they all got a sense of humour & thats what you need, the work it's self was okay but standing on your feet all night in one spot was hard as I'm use to walking around & climbing up & down ladders. Learning skills on the Bandsaw was awesome! i loved it on their , you can only go as fast you can & can't push yourself too go faster other wise you may cut or loose a finger, thats one thing I didn't like about management & that was they push the Saw men to go too fast .
Cons
Work all year round

Fun Workplace
I enjoyed meeting new people and they gave an awesome vibe. The hardest part of the job was waking up early in the morning. The typical day at work ended with us having to clean everything

It was awesome handling knives and meat.
Sharpening knives everyday working on a chain. Learning how to work as a team. The management was fair and the workplace culture was awesome. The hardest part about the job was the maintaining of your knife but the most enjoyable part about the job was having fun having a sharp knife and being a good team member.
Pros
Team effort
Cons
more knife training

productive work place.
management was slack, especially the cold store. the workers (and i) would have to take over time or 6-7 days a week trying to get the plant up to date and ready for the next few more weeks of orders and stock takes as the coldstore was always running behind.
Pros
5+ hours overtime the shift supervisor or manager would shout lunch.
Cons
7 days a week.
