Terrible shift pattern and very poor work/life balance made worse due to poor management decisions! Management don't seem to have a clue what they are doing and have no interest in anything shop floor employees have to say! Absolutely no chance of advancement unless you are a favourite!
The sooner I find alternative employment the better!

Over the last few years there has been very little investment in any of the machinery and lot of the machinery is always breaking down and not fixed properly.
There is a divide between shopfloor staff and management and if you work in the offices you are treated totally different to the shopfloor ie extended breaks and don’t seem to be accountable for any mistakes


The site is currently 24/7 but there isn’t very much work and a lot of customers are pulling out due to bad management decisions.


Not a good place to work as promised so much by management but never following through on their promises and no job security and definitely not one team
Pros
Good wage
Cons
All benefits for shop floor have been withdrawn due to continuous changing of terms and conditions

Knighton is a good place to work at with lots of benefits and good people. I have worked here over 10 years and never had any issues
with colleagues or management.

Too many chiefs on mega bucks driving cost cutting measures. No investment in machinery or suitable employee recruitment.
Poor communication at all levels. A blame culture where everyone's out for their own gain/job security.

Constant widening of gap between shop floor employees and management via unethical HR approaches.
Pros
Good Pay
Cons
Long hours, poor work/life balance, unethically and poorly ran

The people are great to work with. Constantly working on a task, the management team thrive for the best. Constantly keeping busy and everybody works as a team to resolve issues. The only thing I would suggest would be for there to be clearer procedures for daily issues which would result in quicker actions.
Pros
Great people
Cons
Clear procedures

Pros
friendly staff
Cons
Dusty and noisy

A good working environment if you enjoy factory work on a 4 on 4 off basis. Great team members, good breaks. The one negative thing about working at Knighton Foods is if there is much work on, sometimes you turn up to get sent home after 30 minutes because there is no work for you to do, other than that the work place is good.
Pros
Good company
Cons
Long hours
