Ex employee (Former Employee) –  Lockerbie28 August 2016
Management are all friends promote their mates and when something goes wrong in production it's a blame culture. When Arla merged with milk link Lockerbie site was an unbearable place to work as the milk link management team took over and made the fresh milk site a horrible place to work just like milk link
Pros

managers need a good kick
bulk farm driver (Former Employee) –  Lockerbie13 July 2016
Nobody listens' to you. There's no teamwork everyone try's to blame each other. Holidays plenty when you can get them. Wages quite good. No chance of promotion its a who you know place rather than what you know.
Pros
once you leave the yard your on your own until the end of the day.
Cons
you get paid.

Avoid at all costs
Production Operative/Packer (Former Employee) –  Lockerbie21 June 2016
Orders constantly being taken to other factories. Morale is very low, wages are mediocre, promotion is on a 'mates' only basis. Management are only worried about carparks and cover ups. Avoid at all costs. I would never go back.
Pros
Some good people on the floor.
Cons
Management.
