    Pros

    Shop floor team, good mix of people, no two days are the same.

    Cons

    Pay, unfair allocation of work

    Watch what ur management team are doing, sitting in the office for hours and threatening staff if they don’t get a move on, making staff stay behind unpaid when not all work is finished, bad management. Deputy Manager was only one who cared about us.
