It's a snakepit and Pay is underwhelming
If you're completely stuck for a job and local then you try here.
Doesnt matter which shift you're on or which department you'll quickly find that everyone around you cannot be trusted. everyone is likely to turn on you and try to get you screwed over for any mistakes.

the pay scheme is backwards across the board. there are unskilled workers being paid higher rates than skilled workers.

Avoid working here - even if you are desperate for work!
A bad to place to work! Staff are great and got along well with them all...the management - one in particular (I won't say who or what one but they are well known for all the WRONG reasons!) Not so great...1 or 2 seemed okay,just weren't very chatty or even talkative. The place in general? Horrible! Someone on here compared it to Auschwitz - I can see why! Avoid! Avoid!
Pros
Great colleagues
Cons
Where do i start???

Medioka factory
Same as any job, good days/ bad days. Management seems ok, will step up when needed. Sometimes little work off season. Little opportunity for career progression however fine for just a job.

Almost guaranteed a job if you apply however be careful as the way this company treats its workers is appalling. Management and Human Resources are horrible and rude general working conditions are appalling, no support given and the place is mostly foreign agency workers
Pros
It's a job if you're desperate
Cons
Rude management, rude hr staff, no support, seen as a number and not an employee

Absolute travesty of a place to work for
Management is what makes this place what it is , need to have the funny handshake or at least support Rangers to even be favoured in this absolute cesspit of snakes and cows. Certain managers only care about when he can chat up polish girls on the line and then proceed to act and do whatever he wants , place is legit full of counts wish a could take away the o in that word but their it is. All upper management only help out their self and their team , can’t go against them or you’re out pretty much working in Auwschtiz without the death hanging over you
Pros
Like none at all
Cons
Everything, place is legit disgusting

Absolute sham
Due to the fact I was left to stand about for hours on end and the advertised training doesn’t exist. Unless you have experience in this field give it a wide berth.
Pros
Your no signing on
Cons
Everything about it. LACK OF SUFFICIENT TRAINING!!!

Challenging but rewarding
I worked for Albert Bartlett for a few months and they could not have been accommodating to my circumstances. My Team were very supportive and I was trained alongside another few people so have nothing negative to comment about this. It is a shame some people leave on bad terms. I found the opposite. I left due to family changes at home however they have said i can go back if things change in the future. Lots of staff have worked there before and return to work there again. I wish everyone the best of luck for the future.
Pros
Helpful Team

Not a great place
Pay rates are terrible for the amount of tasks you need to carry out especially when their is a high rate of absence.

The disciplinary procedures are a joke not all are treated fairly when errors are made. It seems to be the same ones making mistakes costing the company in fines and they get a slap on the wrist but others who just work away make an occasional error caught before going to the depot and they get warnings etc


The canteen is extortionate, the HR manager is rude, stuck up and doesn’t treat everyone as equals.


A lot of managers and team leaders need to learn people management and communication skills.
Pros
Job security
Cons
A lot

Stay well clear look for employment elsewhere
As an ex employee I was discusted the way that people got treated there, let's just say if your face fits your well on your way to the top of the tattie pile.
I strongly advise anyone seeking employment there to look elsewhere as if you upset management your days will be numbered anyway, just stay well clear..... This company does not treat anyone with mental health problems with dignity or respect so stay well clear, regarding the Christmas bonus if you take time off for eg hospital or dentist appointment and your not back in time you loose the bonus, I honestly thought that a bonus was a reward for working all year round and not just for Christmas bad management, no respect for employees......
Pros
Absolutely none
Cons
Everything about the place especially the Christmas bonus

Avoid at all costs.
I heard that this place was the bees knees from others. What I failed to realise the ‘others’ worked here years ago. I ain’t disputing years ago it may have been a great place to work. But now? Walk outs are a regular occurrence as is sacking your talking at least 1 every other day. In my team they were 2 sackings and one walking within a matter of weeks. Team leaders are VERY LAZY and VERY STUCK UP and definitely not up to the job. You have managers begging staff to become team leaders or QC’s all the time but they get told to shove it. You get paid to do 1 job but through the warehouse section you do 3 or 4 for example, scanning boxes on scales repeatedly whilst walking up and down labelling boxes with a brush and mop hanging out your backside as your expected to clean as well and communicate to arrogant people over a radio that’s 10 years old at least. No health and safety in this joint and if you hurt yourself you get pulled for a R.O.C and blamed. If you died they wouldn’t pay out as they would blame the employee for not being aware of their surroundings which DISGUSTS me. If one person is on holiday on your team then your not allowed to take one yourself even if you have lots to take. Money is poor for the levels of stuff they expect. This place causes severe stress and anger. Please fornthe love of god AVOID the potatoes smell like strong mature cheddar you’ll need a strong stomach. 80% of the staff are foreign and always are the ones to get let home early.
Pros
Nice Team-Mates
Cons
Where to begin?

Secure place to work
Albert Bartlett has always been a large employer in the area. Providing secure employment. I wanted to share positives after reading the negative comments. Employees are friendly and wages handle any queries as quickly in my experience. If you work hard it is rewarded and recognized.
Pros
Team Spirit to get a job done

Not great
Albert Bartlett took over the old Heinz site that I was made redundant from in 2015.
They restarted the factory making chips and roast potatoes.

The part of the factory I worked in before did not restart so I was put somewhere else in the factory.

The shifts are long 12 hour shifts with only 3 short breaks.

you work a 12 hour rotating shift pattern which I think has changed since I was there.

When I worked there there seemed to be more managers than workers.

12 hour nights are not great Best part of day was working with old friends but job was not great
Pros
Not many
Cons
lots

Good learning experience
Very good place to work. Gain a lot of experience in all aspects of work although the progression routes & pay could be better for the job roles. Overall a great company to work for

A complete joke is what working here is, although the management try to sugar coat it continuously!
I wouldn't work in this place if i were you as the whole management system from top to bottom stinks like one of their rotten potatoes. Try and get a job somewhere else as this place is a waste of time!
Pros
The way out!
Cons
Take your pick as there's an abundance to choose from?
