Overall, working at Farmfoods was productive. A typical day would include stacking shelves, cleaning out freezers and filling them with new stock and serving customers at the til.
The hardest part of the job was mainly cleaning out the freezers, as the gloves don't really help and the cutting knives for the cardboard boxes break easily so would often have to rip them open with our hands. Usually going home with painful blisters.
The colleagues created a fun environment to work in. Really friendly and fun.
No work/ life balance, workers and some management are bullies and the pay is terrible, you get more on the dole. The bullying didn’t happen to me but i witnessed it a lot and management would just laugh a long. Would not recommend.
Management were great but it’s so gossipy, workers are nasty and intimidating without any repercussions. I have had some good experience, but the wage IS NOT acceptable, Im young but six pound is beyond a joke. I’ve been trying to save but just getting to work costs A LOT and I’m sure it’s below minimum. I’ve met a good few people through the job and I’ve been here nearly a year but I don’t think I’ll stay any longer. I can’t improve my life in other areas with this wage and I can’t put up with some of the people I have to be around
