Didnt find even one english speaker. Staff are rude, and as a new starter i did not feel welcome. no one told me what to do, everyone was doing their own thing. even the 'manger, i was left with just ignored me the whole shift. it was like a zoo, the whole place. everyone there was acting a bunch of animals.
Pros

Cons

By far the most well paid factories in Lincolnshire, good opportunities for overtime.

Was taking home over £600 a week with overtime which is amazing money for Lincs factories, would definitely recommend if you have the time to put in to earn the money.
Pros
Money
Cons
Long hours

your a number, not a person. most of the management just want big numbers regadless of what happens to employees and agencies.
Machines and processes leave a lot to be desired.

Speak up about it and your moved to the worst departments until you quit.

It is not very punctual at times and collaboration is hard sometimes with people, as they can't cope with each other. Fun place to work but with a busy schedule that is based on how people work with each other.
Pros
Big Canteen
Cons
Long Hours

Don’t apply here if you are English you’ll be spoken down to, slagged off & treated poorly. I worked here for an agency & was the only English person on my line I was being told what to do in a different language then when I said I didn’t understand she turned her nose up at me & walked away,no one helped at all they just sneered. Don’t get me wrong money is good but they really work you for it.
Pros
Money
Cons
It’s like being in Europe

They had they favorites and if you weren’t one of them you were treated poorly. People were rude and they were coughing sneezing over the food without any regard to health and food hygiene

Only came across one other English speaker, support on site as a new starer was appalling. Site supervisor was rude and abrupt.
no social distancing at all in staff area where all staff gathered before shift start time

Anyone can apply no matter what, no English required as the " Numeracy and English test" before you start is completed for you, all you are asked to do is fill your name in

I would seriously avoid

horrible place to work if you are English, you get spoken about talked down to and generally called stupid. While i worked there a lady said all the English new starters were " stupid English " and when the shift manager was told nothing was done about it.
Its a good place for the money you get and there is progression depending on who you can speak to.

Speaking a different language other than English helps here!

i would never work here again the way it was.

A typical day at work: picking, loading/unloading trucks, busy culture but friendly, hardest part of the job is to deal with old date people from management team

Bakkavor is an interesting place to work, there is plenty of work to do, you will be challenged and there is a lot to learn from the immense factory. There are good opportunities for you progress and depending on your job role everyday can be very different.
