They need mechanics but you are a glorified machine operator. You will hardly use any of the skills that one learns thru the trade. You are just an operator.

You just give operators a break, you don't work on equipment. Be careful you don't say something that will hurt feelings, childish people working here. Management is a big joke in maintenance. Then you get laid off , after a short time. revolving door at this place.
Pros

Place is joke

Unilever is a great company and they do many things well. If you are not in the main office they will eventually get rid of your job. They are a young company and getting younger. There is no training provided. They will do many things to make a Number including funding distributors to buy extra product. They restructure yearly and the only thing that matters in the ROI to investors. They do not care about the people.
Pros
big company good pay
Cons
restructure one time a year

Every one is friendly and helpful , there's lots of over time if you are willing to work. There's a store where you can get products that UNILEVER makes.

Unilever is a Safety first company with a strict adherence to procedure. Unfortunately with quick moving production, efficiency is not always priority one. Lines go down and the company scrambles for a scapegoat. The blame is continually shifted and the person left holding the potato is punished. The mentality is not to fix the problems but instead scramble to prove that you had nothing to do with the shortcoming.

Great Job! Schedule can get rough with the shift work but that's the only negative. Seven days a week, three different shifts. Benefits are great and also the people that work here.
Pros
Awesome Workplace
Cons
Schedule

A typical work day was stressful
I really didn't learn much

Management really sucked

Workplace culture was horrible

The hardest part of the job was leaving the employees

The most enjoyable part of the job was going home everyday

My review of Unilever was good I just thought that they should have turned more employees over from the temporary positions that they had other than that you want to leave it was a great company pay well-treated the employees will have nothing bad to say about them.

The site I was working at was very cliquish. They felt that problems were solved not by understanding the problem, but throwing people at it who did not have the needed skills or authority to resolve the issues.

Very fast paced and at times mid-management have a hard time prioritizing tasks due to how quickly the business needs change. There is a feeling of favoritism when it comes to performance ratings and it is very much a mindset of what have you done for me lately.
Company mission/vision are strong and C-Suite leaders are bright, talented, and strategic decision makers.

Great place to work, excellent benefits and great salary. The most enjoyable part of the job was that it had an all inclusive culture. This was a place to learn and grow.

Learned so much and gained valuable experiences. Hard work
isn't recognized unfortuneately, and combined with the low pay,

bad hours and fearful employee culture, this wasn't a job I'd

recommend.
Pros
valuable experience
Cons
low pay, bad hours
