The job it’s self is faultless it’s like marmite you either love it or you hate it, you can manage your own timing once you’re out on the road. The management has gone from bad to worse over the years not taking you seriously most of the time and it’s a if you’re face fits kind of thing in the office but once your out on the road you are left to your self

The management are bullies

The HR department live up to their name as HUMAN REMAINS


There is supposed to be a performance related pay but when you get to certain level it is capped but you are not told or never will be told what the cap is.

I enjoyed my time working for Arla on bulk farm. It’s a great job and they are a good company to work for. Unfortunately the place is let down by a corrupt, clueless management structure!
Pros
Good pay and benefits

Bad management.

They don't have human rights. They care related personal to Arla employees when ever how many years worked for Arla not necessarily what necessarily is are you related to some one Arla employee

The landscape was constantly changing, with different management structures and initiatives rolling through every few years.
This made it both exciting, and also slightly unpredictable, especially in terms of planned investment.

The vertically integrated structure from farmers, through processing to transport to retailers meant a good link and traceability was maintained to the customer. It also meant long range planning was very important, as the farmers own the company.
Pros
Flexibility outside core hours

Company as no respect for employees. Unless your face fits. More agencies in arla than employees say no more, cant speak for the office staff only on the driving side and warehouse. As an new employee as different wage structure than older alra staff. That can't be right when all going the same working.
Pros
None
Cons
Arla

No opportunity/promotion.
Nepotism and politics.

Blaming own laziness on agency workers.

Seen some lovely people and some very nasty.

Otherwise very relaxed job.
