    I have been working at Dairy Crest full-time (More than a year)

    I worked at Dairy Crest part-time

    Pros

    Friendly staff. Health and Safety is a top priority across all divisions! I didn't find it to difficult to follow but you just have to this twice when doing something as otherwise they would give a star card!

    Cons

    There was no real time for agency workers to get properly trained. But eventually if they finally learned themselves how to do job properly then managers will come and take the task away from them and give it to their own employees, which results in reducing working hours without any warning.
