Being entrusted with individual project work usually important document and data analysis. I have increased my confidence and my attention to detail through the work I have been a part of at ABP. The job was fairly laid back, as long as the work was done I could manage my week to how I saw fit. Whether that was going out on farm to see the farmers in person, visiting other sites, leading tours, being in office or going to collection centres. I was able to organise and run events for farmers through ABP to help with development and productivity. Management was supportive and had very good leadership when it came to helping my development in an office based environment.

It just bad. You dont know your days off you can be working for up to 60 hours a week and only be paid for 40. When your new to the role you need to know everything becuase the
lower management doesn't train you. Senior management dont care about your views. Your just a number.
Pros
None
Cons
everything with the stevedore department

The one thing I can not complain about is the team of workers on the factory floor as they are extremely committed and hard working. I was welcomed in with open arms and made to be feel like family.

When asked how I was settling in I told management that we were bonding very well and all enjoying our work. I was then told by a member of the technical management team "We don't care about that, treat them like **** and just get the job done"

When I said I wouldn't treat people like that I was told that I should consider my role at the company so I left. I feel so sorry for the workers there as they deserve so much better.

A culture of bullying and indifference. No regard for any qualification you may have from former jobs. Pay may increase if your face fits, otherwise forget it.

All of the employees are kind and helpful and the managers take time to properly show you what you are supposed to do and will demonstrate themselves if you struggle

I worked there through an agency and got let go within one week. This was because they refused to train me and I forgot my card one day and had a private mental health moment. They do not respect mental health and noone there would speak to me even though I was (supposed to be) training. They say they will work with you but then say it is an inconvenience even though they offered.
Pros
Cheap food
Cons

I worked for them for over twenty years until radical changes were implemented in 2015 which ended in me having a break down due to the excessive night work which sadly caused me to leave.The arrogant and aggressive managment that are now in charge didnt care and cant be reasoned with.But i was lucky to of had many good years there.New comers are not so fortunate with much lower pay and crazy shift systems in place.
But conditions depend on what department your in and if your ok with being a brown nose.
Pros
High pay
Cons
Shift work and loss of social life

it was great fun to work with everyone. each day was very different to the next as expected in a busy port. the best part was being out on the water and the worst part was some of the waiting around you did and even then it was alright because all of the employees were friendly and would strike up a conversation to pass the time.

A typical day at work arrive at 6 and after a safety talk then straight up the crane and start discharging or loading the vessel . I enjoy working here because of job satifaction its enjoyable after seeing a ship leave the port knowing that you and your team have discharged and loaded it . The hardest part of the job is the long hours and not spending much time at home with my family .
Pros
Good workmates
Cons
Long hours no balance
