    I have been working at Allied Bakeries full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    4 on 4 off shift pattern. Overtime available. 24 days holiday. Ask others for possible shift swap or cover.

    Cons

    Have to work nights every other week. 12 hr shifts! Have to work at weekends. If shift falls on bank holiday you have to work (with no extra pay, as all a consolidated rate)

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Could get involved a bit more. Take others concerns more seriously.

    I have been working at Allied Bakeries full-time

    Pros

    Great grass roots employees, flexible in work patterns (sometimes)

    Cons

    Frustrations at lack of resources, safety culture sadly lacking (can't afford to make plant safe and efficient), poor development (peers providing training!!!), unrealistic expectations of being a world class company

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Acknowledge you've over stretched yourselves with production investment decisions. Safety should be first not a badge to bring out when you think you should

    Doesn't Recommend
    Negative Outlook
