OK !! were do i start...Lets start with the guy who handles the induction a really likeable character who really does his job well and makes you really relaxed if only he would have been truthfull about the culture of the company.....A workplace full of different cultures many of which are very nice people to work alongside...the problem from my experience there is the people in charge... i worked in the cureing area were there are two people in charge of staff one of which i found very nice indeed but unfortunatly the other has less people skills than my baby finger and causes more drama and bad feeling than a years supply of eastenders.
Only one dinner break for the whole shift and thats 35 minutes and from the area where i worked it takes at least 5 mins to walk to the canteen expect to be moaned at if you are 10 mins or so late back from your break thats if you are english of course if you are not english its ok to take an hour if you like thats because one of the supervisor"s is from the same country has them....i met some really nice people in my short time there from all cultures from around the world but beware the supervisor"s favorites are full of drama and wouldnt think twice about stabbing you in the back,,,the reason i decided to take the job was because of the manager who was in charge there at the time and he really was starting to make inroads into making it a better place to work but unfortunatly the company decided to release him from his position such a shame has it was really starting to change for the better......within days of him leaving the culture was

Had interview, told when I would start and hourly rate (I hadn't even accepted but still given a start date) then on induction found out it had all been lies (not hourly rate promised, no holiday honoured etc) Wanted to quit on first day (but unfortunately need money!). It's not that its majority a production line job more the fact that it's run like a circus or military camp whatever you believe, told you can't do this, that and the other yet on shop floor total opposite. I have nothing against foreign workers, the majority I've worekd with before are insanely hard workers, unfortunately the department I'm in they must have missed it with this bunch, no one speaks English, they're rude, it's overrun with them and they do what they want, take hours of breaks, dissappear whenever and whatever they're doing, most of them are there for jokes and chat and they're allowed to get away with it because they're from the same country as their supervisor. The place is a joke, the machines are constantly broken and it's slow, monotonous and will break you. One 30 minute break, but it's more like 20 by the time you've changed etc and then have to get rechanged etc. On your feet hauling tonnes of pork joints etc, freezing, you're covered in various body parts, blood etc and just not worth it. Save yourself the trouble it's not worth the hassle, I'll be out second something comes up, how some people have lasted 25+ years is beyond me, 3 days has been enough! Only shame is the (English) guys I'm with are really nice, only thing that gets me through the pain of the (long) day.

Avoid this company at all costs. Management are the worst I’ve seen, there’s absolutely no safety culture and the lack of spares for engineering is more than alarming. The ‘welsh mafia’ management as they’re known onsite are probably the most arrogant gaggle of jobs worth’s I’ve come across. This place drains the life out of everyone that comes through it’s gates

The main problem with working in a slaughterhouse is the smell and the dead pigs. I enjoyed working there. There was plenty of chance for overtime to enhance your salary.

Depends, obviously where you work.
I was in Hygiene, was a great bunch of guys/girls who got on and had a laugh, recently I left due to to many people getting advances in jobs because of family in higher positions, without even advertising, or them not even working within the company, I worked there for nearly 14yrs.

But had enough of being overlooked for advancement.

Had an interview with full intentions of getting a long term full time job. Not once in the interview did they tell me that the company was looking at closing a load of departments within the next few months... meaning redundancy. Also they miss informed me of the hours i would be contracted to work. During the interview, the lady said it would be mon-fri, 6am - 2.30pm. I had left my previous job and started work here 2 days later. It was not until i was on my 3rd day, that i was informed that my shift patterns was actually 6 - 2.30pm one week, and 2.30 - 11pm the next. This caused a few problems. Luckily i managed to work around it. I should have been informed of this before hand. The reason i was given, was that the lady who had interviewed me was new and had misinformed me by mistake. As the weeks went on, the work load got less and less. Managers was sending staff home with paid or unpaid holidays because of the lack of work to be done. After a few months there, there was talk between staff of a closure, although not once was we informed ourselves by a manager. It was not until it was in the local papers that we then was sat down in a meeting and informed that they would possibly be making people redundant but that was looking to be in the new year. Then just to make things worse, less than 2 week before Christmas, myself and a few others, was left without a job. Only 6 months after i got the job. No care for staff at all. surely they shouldn't have taken new staff on knowing that there was a possible closure about to happen.
On a plus, when there was work, it was a good

Fast paced and some people don’t enjoy it and move on very quickly. Lots of progress opportunities. Also lots of agency staff. The canteen benefits are very good as get a hot meal for as cheap as £2.50.

Tulip was a really good fast pace workplace it’s definitely a job for life I was just young when I had this job and threw it away but would highly recommend as the job is physically demanding and pays a very good wage and the times are really good as well when you work meaning you can have a social life or have to spend time with the family.

The work isn't hard the way the place is run by management is counterproductive and stressful making everyday working life stressful. Any good idea that could be pitched will fall on deaf ears.

No skills, management only interested in getting a bonus so bully and threaten to achieve their goals. Hygiene standards are disgusting and I am surprised nobody has been seriously ill. Shift patterns are awful. The whole environment is a disgrace. No matter what values they put in with new owners this place, with the current regime will continue to lose good people and beat the ones who stay.
