I have worked at Hovis for 13 years now and I think it has been one of the best jobs I have ever had. The management are never going to be perfect and will not suit everyone but I tend to get on with all of them. The team leaders are generally okay.
The salary is great but don't expect any perks because you will be disappointed. The hours are okay - more...
No free lunches but the wages are good.
Don't put any ideas forward, the management wont listen.
