Silver Fern Farms Employee Review
Busy production line very fast paced and always changing,
As production scheduler I was always extremely busy and under considerable stress. There was always support available. I enjoyed this fast environment and there was never a dull time,

Days went very quickly
High pressure and focused work place
any position is only what you make it. I worked in a small department with a very good manager. The main problem with SFF is the lack of communication and the top heavy business model. I had a varied day with sampling or auditing different departments. Just to make life interesting, the day could be interupted with compliance incidences thrown in to keep you on your toes.
I like to get to work early to sharpen tools, and to micro pause when I can and to see where I am on te manning sheet, learned lots while working here, first aid, phec certificates, emergency response team (ert), knife handling skills, health and safety (rep), first aid responder and more, management team they have now are way more professional then the last lot, which is a big help. Work place culture on te late shift is sweet as for me, you just need to adapt and mingle in where you can you’ll be fine! Hard part working here? Keeping knife razor sharp, but when you crack that job is super easy! Best part about working here? The job, the people, the experience, mates looking out for mates!
Management’s easy to talk to, open door policy
Some long hours...
