my 13 months at CALOR GAS was a fun and productive time. it helped me to fully understand health and safety as it is a dangerous environment. With the work team they were full of life and liked to have a joke around. There were plenty of team building exercises on offer, they would be set about 3 months apart. There was heaps of overtime. You were not stuck on 1 job they would rotate you on jobs every Monday, so you were trained up on everything in the work environment.
Pros
early starts, afternoon finishes
Cons
management

Worked as a plant operative filling gas cylinders also unloading and loading lorries and maintenance of gas cylinders in the coldest and most outdated plant you could imagine, 47kg gas bottles hand loaded and unloaded from lorry trailers, if you want heavy dirty work and inhaling gas fumes is your thing with little reward then dive in. Management not interested in you unless part of the clique.
Pros
none
Cons
management, outdated methods

Long hours, hard work and monotonous. No chance of progressing, agency is always trying to save money meaning work wear is sacrificed. High staff turnover most people don't last the first week as they hate it.
Pros
Just over min wage
Cons
No stable job and not valued

Was employed as a bottling plant operative doing what can only be described as the most mind numbing work i have ever come across in the coldest environment you could ask for. Management could not care less about their employees and the plant itself is so outdated it would fit in lovely in Victorian times. Beware this company as all they want is mugs to carry out a heavy and dirty job.
Pros
None
Cons
leaving the place
