The staff there are above evil, they will be out to get you for no reason, they tamper with your machine, look down their noses at you and treat you like dirt on a shoe. Break times are a joke, you have to run to canteen and back, no lockers, high sky high prices and dirty. Avoid regardless of job, contract or position.

Messed around as agency staff. Put on same shift each week then drop night shift onto you. start times vary from 1430 to 0630 and 2230. No proper training, dirty, smelly and you have to shout to talk to anyone. Arrogant staff especially chisels dept. Supervision are up their own backsides.
Avoid like plague, nasty place, nasty staff. spitting and stinking staff.
Pros
going home at shift end
Cons
permanent staff arrogant and nasty

CNC Operator (Former Employee) –  hellaby rotherham20 December 2016

Avoid at all costs Hellaby is horrid and stinks.
Pros
going home at end of shift
Cons
nasty colleagues that like to sabotage your machine.
