due to the 3 months probation, a lot employee are interviewed by numerous agencies, pay and hours of work differs with the different agencies. After the 3 months probation period most employee from less favourable agencies seem to be made redundant as there seem to be a correlation of people being let go to the agency that acquired them.
Pros
nice working environment and on site canteen with adequate provision
Cons
due to the location of the warehouse, there are no public transport after 6, so driving might be essential although some agency provide lifts

If you are a newly passed driver or a semi- retired driver then a good place to work. But if not then i would not recommend working for arla foods in particular if you are not from either Romania or Poland. The transport office staff have not got a clue. Its a case of always passing the buck when a driver asked them anything like parking, health& safety, truck defects etc. And a word to any new driver is watch your back at all times.The transport management can not be trusted at all. Get everything in writing and photocopied. Other than that you will love it. .
Pros
cheap dairy products, Good first job if a new driver to learn at
Cons
transport office managers, staff

Use of different live systems
Cons
Long hours
