Silver Fern Farms Employee Review

Work constant but sometimes work 50 to 70 hrs a week

Sometimes they like you when they need you to do things for them and other times if you need something, the rules come back into play. There is always work here with SFF and people do work hard and long hours. We have a brand new plant which is the state of the art. Should be the best place to work.

Pros

a bbq if you work overtime on the weekend (at waitoa plant).

Cons

very long hours. asked to work overtime when you have completed 50 hrs.

Summary highly recommend to start work there. Good money great work place

My review on silver ferns takapau is great. i learnt how to trim and handle meat i learnt how to sharpen and look after gear. i worked with great people and got paid really well. Typical day would be sharping knifes cleaning gear and gumboots applying the right work gear. keeping your work area clean. Most enjoyable part would be working with a great team. Hardest part would be keeping my knifes sharp

Pros

Fresh cooked lunch & dinner

Cons

Short breaks
