I started in Karro a few months back and haven't looked back since! I was greeted and brought in for an induction day that was a lot to take in, but working with knives and adhering to such a high standard isn't took lightly. I have been helped and guided along the way with team leaders and managers checking in and asking how things are going, the amount of work in the set hours can be high but you always just get on with it and time flies!

I’ve not worked here long so still learning the ropes but co workers seem very friendly. And managers check in on how I’m doing which I think is nice.

In Cookstown there is a negative impression of the factory and what its like to work here. I am so glad I didn’t pay any attention to that.. I am really happy with my work and the people are friendly

It’s a good company to work for, there are opportunities for me in other areas of the business when I get my feet under the table in CPM. I thought I would be a short term position but there is job security and regular money.
Pros
Training, weekly pay
