Excellent Company to work for.

Everyone at Samworth is friendly and more than willing to help.

Productive
In the workplace, I have few minutes of brakes in order to rest and there is a few friendly colleagues. The hardest part of the job is to stand up for 6 hours working in a fast paced environment and the most enjoyable time is when we have a dinner rake.

Good work place to establish long term career
A good place to work if you are after a long term career. Sometimes it may feel hard to get promoted, however there is plenty of support and get the chance to move forward when the opportunity arise.
Pros
Job consistency, job security
Cons
Long hours

No comment
The company have been fair although the work can be stressful.

There is a high turnover of people and this needs to be reviewed by management as to why.

Nice place to work
Good team spirit, nice people to work with. Large company, but still tried to look after the individual employees. Work got done without the need to apply any pressure from management

Absolute Chaos
Very busy every day. Most managers were supportive but higher management less so. Some of my immediate line managers were in competent and made doing my job impossible so I left.

Wouldn't recommend
So I started with this company on the 20/12/2019, today the 22/12/2019 I walked out of the job, they don't allow unions, pay awful for a company turning over billions (the image of all that's wrog with capitalism in this country, if your English, you will find it hard to find anyone that talks fluent enough to hold a decent conversation. Feels like a prison when you're there to summarize you should and can do better
Pros
Welcoming
Cons
No unions, bad pay despite big profits, slave labour

Nice place but bad management
It is a nice place to start working but not for a long time as the management is really bad. I would only recommend this place to my friends if they wouldn’t find anything better than this.

Not good company to work for
People who leave samworth brothers always say they will miss the people but not the company. Treated as a number not a person. Don't feel valued or appreciated

Great team work environment
The workplace culture was really good. Everyone worked for each other, across departments. I learnt to multitask and become more organised as well as developing my knowledge within the food industry.
