Run - This organisation font value there people
Unit Manager (Former Employee) –  Stockport20 February 2019
Not the job i was sold in my interview and after an initial settling in period people are thrown to the wolves.

Senior management do not know how to run the business and are hampering efforts rather than fix issues.

High staff turnover and disengaged employees

OT is available as and when required in many cases it is forced

Initially loved working here but unfortunately a high staff tirn over made short staffing an issue and this lead to having to work extra shifts and it becoming a lot harder work. But this job gave me a lot of experience amd training.

Low morale with most in fear of thier jobs
worker (Former Employee) –  Fochabers26 October 2016
Very autocratic management at work level with senior management not seeming to have a clue what is happening or what their demands actually mean to the work force. Plenty of overtime which you will be expected to work whether want to or not due to peer pressure. Low moral as undergoing a 2 year review with no-one knowing who's jobs is safe and whether still be employed in the future.
Pros
None
Cons
Long hours and very short breaks

Stores Operative
Stores Person (Former Employee) –  Fochabers11 October 2016
Very out dated way of hiring and operating. Management consists of family and friends..
supervisors and management have you doing jobs your not qualified to do and well above your pay grade.
Health and safety is virtually non existent and production are continuesly bending the rules and pushing the boundaries of health and safety to have outdated lines pushed to their limits. Company prides itself in quantity not quality.

Extremely low rates of pay. Been there for almost ten years and only had 3 pay rises which consisted of an extra 17p and hour.. less than 2.5%.

Look elsewhere for employment if I were you.
Pros
None
Cons
Poor management. HSE non existent. Poor pay

Typical day at work is driving staff and line performance. Making sure product is made right first time and that there are no quarantines on line. CCP's are done in a timely manner and all paperwork is accurate and correct. Liase with my staff, fellow Supervisors and Managers.
Filling in paperwork and writing shift report at the end of the day with all the batches/yields and cases produced.
Pros
friendly co-workers
Cons
weekend work

Old fashioned culture
PRODUCTION MANAGER (Former Employee) –  Fochabers, SCT2 February 2016
Very autocratic style of management it becomes very apparent not long after you have joined the company that the culture is very old fashioned and out dated you feel a bit conned by the way they get you to join the company lot of false promises.

O.K for short term but not long term
production warehouse OP (Former Employee) –  fochabers5 August 2015
I was still not that long from school when i joined baxters. A typical day would see you go the locker room and put on your overalls, hairnet and wellies. You would then swipe in to start work and assemble at your assigned food line to start the day.
It was a very long day as you would just stare at hundreds of carrots coming down a line all day and it was mind numbing. The management would have a laugh with you so the day wouldnt drag sometimes but it wouls still be a long day.
Pros
easy work
Cons
long days
