Great employer, very health and safety focused. Fast paced, good mangers who look out for you. Wost part is that the site consisted of two factories and you could get drenched if you had to go to the other building while it's raining.
Pros
good canteen, good atmosphere
Cons
can get soaked if you have to go between the buildings.

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
Leaving Arla
Cons
Working there

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.

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.
