Pladis McVities, Harelesden factory is the place not to be. Overworked, underappreciated, underpaid considering the amount your labour produces for the company, staff benefits continuously cut year on year as the recognised unions USDAW are corrupt and in bed with the company, unsafe working conditions and practices, disorganised training, senior staff and management continuously try to screw you over,,no career progression unless you kiss management a... Worst, HR and managers I've ever seen.

crazy shift pattern where you work every 2nd weekend fri/sat/sun if you are not flexed up if you are flexed up (not often) you can end up working 3 fridays in a row,job very draining/ training near enough non existent job is packing product into boxes at high speed the machines very ancient and constant jamming up of lines very frustrating,nobody seems to want to improve anything at all shocking amounts of waste you would need to see to believe,some line leaders attitude to staff is very poor to say the least morale is extremely poor at glasgow site nothing changes for the better 12 hr shifts are long and tiresome,pay is reasonable compared to some companies depends on your role in factory recently told waste not sustainable but without a lot of investment this is not going to improve any time soon.
Pros
co workers depends on your plant
Cons
flex up agreement/long shifts/morale poor
