Production Stream Group leader (Current Employee) – Hyde, Greater Manchester – 25 April 2018
Very good place to work and get paid well for work you do. I progressed very quickly within Kerry Foods within a space of a year I went from being a team leader to being a manager and excelled. Just wanting to make a step up.

I started as van rep then moved up to van team sales man , then moved up to supervisor which done for six years . then was promote to assistant manager ,then for six months was acting manager to.The job was very long days and a six day week with at least 12 hours days.long days was the hardest part of job.The most enjoyable about the job was the meet people selling the products.

i have many positive memories for my years at kerrys as i've gained lots of valuable experience both in work and life. but due to current management ways of work and the balance of work/home life and the cuts in staff have made me want to change my employment.
Production worker/Machine Operator (Former Employee) – Hyde, Greater Manchester – 14 March 2018
Long monotonous shifts, menial, thankless tasks to be done day in, day out, in a cold, loud, unpleasant environment. Some Great managers some extremely poor ones too, often times talked to like dirt. Hardest part of the job, dealing with the back pain. Best part, lunches were okay.
Production Operative (Former Employee) – Ossett – 22 January 2018
I spent 3 weeks at Kerry Foods and after these 3 weeks I was laid off, being told it was due to hygeine issues, despite showering every morning/evening before work and always wearing PPE. The managers seemed to pick and choose who did the better jobs and they did not seem to like me.
Stock Controller (Former Employee) – south east region – 10 January 2018
every day was a busy day from start to finish trying to get. all aspects of the day to day job complete. In the job you learnt a lot about dealing with different people. My manager was a pleasure to work for and work place culture was very much the idea of a good life/work balance.

Food Process Technician (Current Employee) – Ossett – 5 November 2017
Kerry foods is a good company to work for and their is alot of great people. Id say management needs improvment as day to day work can be very busy and feel unorganised. The money is okay (not great) for the weekly paid staff but if you are one of the salary employees the money can be rewarding.
shift allowance, lots of overtime, x2 and x1.5 overtime rates.
assistant (Former Employee) – Hyde, Greater Manchester – 21 August 2017
Only will employ agency and will not take anybody on full time. Lots of good people work there put down by inadequate management and higher up bosses who don't really take any care in their employees, bringing cuts after cuts.
