    Pros

    Staff are fairly friendly, across all sites there are lots of people who are always willing to help out.

    Cons

    All extra work outside of your allotted hours is unpaid and uncared about and is just "that's the way it is" and it is expected regularly to work outside of hours.

    I worked at ABP Food Group full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    There are no pros whatsoever.

    Cons

    AVOID like the plague. Management at ABP Langport are shocking, they have no respect for their employees. They are racist. They use you. They CONSTANTLY lie to you. They advertise as a lovely caring company with career progression blah blah blah. It's all bs to lure people in. Seriously, no matter how desperate you are, don't even think twice about applying for this place.

    Advice to Management

    Stick your management status where the sun doesn't shine. You are appalling, and cause mental distress to your employees. Glad I left, I now put as many people off this place as I can.
