    I worked at Moy Park full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Training took only a day, and no previous experience at a factory was required

    Friendly colleagues, with a broad range of cultural and work backgrounds

    It was fascinating to see, and to get involved in the process of how food is mass produced, and there was a definite satisfaction in producing several tonnes of chicken products per day

    Almost no English skill required (kind of a moot point if you're reading this, but a lot of the workers spoke almost no English and managed fine)

    Cons

    Shifts from 7am to 7pm, with unpaid breaks just over the minimum legal time limit. I also had to be early to work every day, and the factory was in an out of town location, so was a bit of a trek for everyone to walk to in the morning.

    Working in an underground, refrigerated factory with no natural light for days on end was kind of depressing.

    A lot of physically demanding work, e.g. some days I'd have to spend the whole day pushing 100kg carts of chicken from one side of the factory to the other.

    Not suitable for anyone prone to squeamishness! You are, after all, handling many tonnes of raw meat each day. The overalls mostly protect you from the blood and liquid from the meat that splashes onto you, but sometimes you get so soaked in the blood that it soaks through your overalls and clothes, which is kind of disgusting.

    Almost no opportunity to get promoted

    Advice to Management

    Providing free meals (even if just the chicken produced at the factory), would increase worker loyalty

    Pros

    8 hours shift with 3 breaks, this is the only one good thing to work in moy park

    Cons

    there are no opportunities, working like a horse

    I have been working at Moy Park full-time

    Pros

    Resources, training to add new skill, new opportunities to develop in different areas of the business

    Cons

    Big company síndrome, not all the factories work under the same standards and rules.

    Advice to Management

    Never lose the focus in people they are the real core of the company

    I worked at Moy Park part-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Good wage package if you are a student, chances for OT.
    Gain communication skills along with team-work and time management in a busy production line.

    Cons

    Line managers have no management skills whatsoever, however, some are hard-working and do help out. If you aren't friends with the management forget about moving up.
    Company has no criteria for recruitment anymore as new starters/workers lack any skill and unfortunately to no fault of their own, speak any English.

    Approves of CEO

    I worked at Moy Park full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Previously ran great development programs for all junior teams. Wellbeing programs and days out appreciated.

    Cons

    No longer develop existing staff, now sees an influx of under skilled, educated grads. Good people but not your typical working class. Very much cloak and dagger within senior management.

    Advice to Management

    Get on the floor and talk to your teams. This for of communication has all but disappeared really sad to see. With multiple parent companies in recent years transparency to your staff is key.

    Not much chance for progression.
