It was a well paying job being on the minimum wage of a 25 year old when i was only 17, the work wasn’t the best but definitely good overall, would recommend to school leavers.

It is a really stressful place to be. No twice thinking, management expect you to be a sheep, to do different stuff without thinking. Not a good place to evolve or to show your potential.

Very fast passed, stressful, demanding, anxiety-ridden blame culture the whole ephos is stage managed for customers and directors to give the illusion everything is under control. Management only want people who they can control manipulate and willing to do as they are told , Senior Management want people who are at the lower end of the education scale as middle Management as they do not like to be out shone and out thought , The working environment is Victorian with very little training very few re-assessment operators working on machinery they have no understanding of There’s dust and smoke filled production areas, with line leaders more concerned with productivity than workforce safety, wellbeing and quality

The salary is decent, but the environment just drains you mentally in an unexplainable way, plus the hours you do are based on the volume of the orders so you never really know how many hours you will do.

Best part of working at youngs seafoods was the friendly and inviting nature of everyone who works there. I enjoyed the good hard pace of the work and the satisfaction of feeling like you've done a good days work

Young's like all other companies need to move forward, I feel that I have gone has far as I can within the business. I have gained some valuable qualifications whilst working for Young's and I am now looking for new opportunities to showcase and share my skills and Knowledge and be allowed to make a difference in helping employees to gain skills required to do the best job they can. I thrive on challenges and leading a multi site training team has its difficulties, not only location but ways of working sometimes deviate and supporting the whole team can be difficult. The most difficult part of the job is persuading site managers that they need to get their teams trained, not only for safety but for customer compliance. The most enjoyable part of the job is successfully going through customer Audits without any non-conformances.
