      Good pay, Overtime if wanted, discount of (10%)at Christmas, friendly co-workers. Good place to start of your career, can be a great learning experience for those who are at college, sixth form, left school or at university and have just started working.

      Cons

      Supervisors are awful, favouritism between supervisors and management, no work life balance, expected to work all bank holidays and there’s no recognition for hard work.
