Run by someone who's well out of he's depth, they don't follow ACAS guidelines when it comes to disciplinarys. Bullying and racism is rife, especially towards polish and Bulgarians! HR don't know there butts from there elbows, when visitors go they suck up to them, by lowering the line speeds, progression threw the company is only for those they like and those they don't are forced out, not getting a disciplinary involves apologising , cateen OVER priced and poor quality.
Pros
£ and free carpark
Cons
Management!

Working at Arla is tough.The shift pattern 3 on 3 off alternate days/nights is tough.Your body never knows where it is.The work is fast & sometimes heavy & the management don't care about you.Production is everything & staff are mostly irrelevant.The pay is good it must be said but my God you earn it....

Managers are rude
Managers do not listen

When there is an audit the factory goes into meltdown and runs only a few lines

No way of career progression

Great place to work. Always growing within and on a larger scale. This company has brought me out of a quiet shell and into a strong person that I need to be to further a career I enjoy.

This job was on a production line which was at a very fast pace. All workers were extremely friendly and it helped to create a nicer workplace. This was a 3 on 3 off shift pattern.

Long hours doing repetitive jobs. Good pay, however very hard to also have a social life which was good as I didn't spend the money I earned, I managed to save!

There is a racist environment towards agency workers and managers do not treat workers with any respect. Although health and safety is stressed, the production lines are dirty and a temperature which is too cold. I sustained injuries from working there and recieved no sympathy.
