Not going to lie the job is hard work, it's physically demanding but saying that it keeps you fit.
The staff are friendly and help each other out if and when needed and are a great bunch of men and women.
Equipment needs to be modernised, the scanners are useless and make a simple task a total headache.
There is only a few members of staff that get moved around from job to job so if your stuck on a job you really not happy with you need to let your shift leader know to see if you can try another task during the shift.
You need to be vocal with management and keep on at them if you feel they are not listening. , do not accept something if your not happy.
Management do shout and swear but it's the nature of the job,it's faced paced and stressful and every one swears so if you are easily offended it's not the job for you but I do feel management would be respected more if they didn't swear.
Being a team member is vital.
There does however need to be a proper trainer there for new staff, because training tends to be left to the current staff who are trying to do their own job plus train and at peak periods it's impossible. I had a lovely lady train me who put me at ease and made me feel welcome and showed me how to do my assigned task.. Had I been working with her all the time I would have been more than happy.
Christmas is just busy busy mad busy and you start really early from around November till January .
This job is not an easy job and after work you do feel like you have done a full days work .
Good wages, great staff
Early mornings, old equipment.
