Long shifts in an old factory. Learn't quite a bit about lean manufacturing. Senior management unforgiving and inflexible. Very difficult trying to change anything with "always done it that way attitude"

I enjoyed my twenty years at Arla foods. I made many friends and developed a range of machinery management skills. The workplace culture was fun and everybody worked well as a team, as well as individually.

Very hard working environment, staff were rude, no one listened to you. Very unorganised. Even when injuries occurred due to heavy lifting, we were told to continue or don't come back tomorrow
