I have been at Herrco for a while now and it is hard work and sometimes long days but it is rewarding and enjoyable, there are pressures like in any job but the overall atmosphere is really good, happy and everyone pulls together to help everyone else when trying to get an order out the door!

An excellent job to build a career and learn new skills.The team at Herco is professional and friendly always keen to help. I recommend highly Herco cosmetics to anyone that is looking a great place to work for,improve and learn new skills,
Herrco has given me great opportunity to grow in my career and a continious support for my development, i enjoy doing what i do and come to work with smile on my face :) it is fast paced environment and people who can adapt to changes do great here!
Free coffee, fun people around, flexible working hours
I would never burn my bridges and run down a former employer. Herrco cosmetics is a place to work and as with every factory there are good and bad points. Turnover of staff is horrific with untrained staff put into positions to fill gaps of departed staff. This is a double-edged sword, if you can learn quickly enough and handle the pressure you will rise through the ranks quickly. Some people will just be crushed by the pressure and leave sometimes with no other employment. I had a good and productive 2 years at Herrco. I learned many different skills and knowledge. I was able use this to then to move to a higher position in a different company. If you decide to work at Herrco be experienced working in a factory environment and have experience dealing with difficult situations and people. If you have a level of intelligence, prepared to work hard and can deal with internal politics you will get promoted. If you cannot handle pressure, criticism or politics do not entertain the idea of working there.

It is nice to wear official company clothing. The management are friendly, helpful and polite. It is great to see how the company is growing. Would like to understand how structure on salaries, increments and pay rises work & when.

staff turnover at the company is absolutely insane, 100 persons leave within the last 1-2 year. Nobody wants stay at Herrco Cosmetics, it is not a place to build career and all because of same reason....the Managing Director. don't be fooled on the interview, you will hate the place after a month ot being talked down to, sworn at, blamed for things. Terrible culture, management and place to work, there is no HR department to discuss things in private because everything goes to the MD and he decides on everything. Avoid at all costs. 100 people don't just leave a company in a 2 year period if it is a good place of work.

Great company to work for and your hard work won`t be unnoticed as in this case there are possibilities to go up step by step and play more important role in the company and in the team. There is a friendly and helpful team which knows what the team work means as well as the management who appreciates hard work and you never feel like you are not important enough for the company whatever role you are in. Good atmosphere in a work place which is very important at work and every day is just with pleasure. Of course there are harder days but you just can`t avoid them anywhere, it`s natural and normal , but the thing is your hard work is appreciable which compensates everything.

Account Manager (Current Employee) – Halesworth – 19 July 2016
Perfect place if you aren't scarred of a hard work! Personally I have started as a packer , then been promoted to the fillers team, after that managers have see a potential in me to be a line leader! After working as a line leader for just for over a year I have been offered an opportunity to try myself in customer service team. The company sent me to various management courses, supported and got me a privite English language teacher( English isn't my first language) and after all that been promoted to account managers which I'm very proud of and cannot be thankful enough for pushing and believing in me! Overall at Herrco you will meet friendly line leaders / supervisors team, will have lunch in a modern canteen, have a free cup of coffee or tea, get paid regularly with no delays😊 Senior managers team has to go a long way and I improve a lot, but considering that it's a young team (age wise) once they got few years under their belts , every single one of them will be brilliant .
Growing company with great personal development opportunities
Chemist (Current Employee) – Halesworth – 18 July 2016
It's big pleasure to work with people who are so passionate about the work they do! Very supportive environment, busy but exciting. Great opportunity to expand my skills and gain wide experience, covering all aspects of cosmetic manufacturing. Sometimes it's very challenging, but that what build my knowledge and self confidence the most. Everyday you work you're always developing and learning something new! And the best is that there is always someone who can help. Supportive senior management made me grow without being to much stressed. Friendly co-workers, always happy to help and a great company parties makes it great work experience and a fun work place.
Training opportunities, friendly and supportive management, room for advancement.
Employee turnover, but it can be considered pros as created strong and good team. Growing business means busy staff, but better this way than redundancy.
