- everyday was good start of the morning
- i have learned how to use knife and other jobs

- management was slow its all depend on workers

- the hardest part was when you start something new but the supervisior or work mate doesn't teach you properly

- most enjoyable part is when everyone is happy and talk to eachother rather then be quite

Management was not very professional in terms of training... Pretty much thrown in the deep end.
Work load unfairly distributed, some working in same position but could leave whenever/wherever leaving you with to complete work

Favouritism... It was who you knew and could get away with being slack and unproductive

At South Pacific Meats i learnt very quickly to work within a team environment with some great people which made it an enjoyable work place. Hardest part of the job was to meet certain deadlines with hefty work loads but always made the deadlines with the good team we had.

I worked here for a day and half, that was enough for me to see just how their Health and Safety culture was going to seriously injure someone or even kill someone..
I picked up my toolbox and walked out after telling engineering manager that I had a family that needed me alive so I got out while I could.

seeing the rescue helicopter arrive to take someone seriously injured away from site was the final deciding factor in my decision.
Pros
None
Cons
dangerous health and safety culture, pay way below market pay rates

I really enjoyed working as a team and everyone are so friendly and polite. I learnt how to cut trim meat and fat etc. The hardest part would have to be trying to keep my knife sharp all day while the chain was going fast but in the end i managed. The most enjoyable part was packing the offal and putting stickers on the boxes and sending them away overseas. It just made you feel good about being able to send it and to provide the lovely meat we produce in our country.
Pros
long hours
