Worked as floorboy for 6 months working like a dog. They don’t care about staff mental and physical health. Also they don’t even follow their own OH&S properly. I’ve seen people drop meat and chuck it straight back on the conveyor belt. First aid lady is a terrible person same as the lady who give you your gloves and other PPE. Only good thing about this place is the money. JBS such a terrible company pffft
Good pay rate
Work like a dog
Management wasn’t run well, usually emailed if there was a genuine problem with employee, long walk from car park to employment was disorganised as I felt that the workers should of had car parks close to factory rather than management and office staff who had closer car parks as the workers on the floor were the ones that were actually working physically
Great team to work with minus management
Pay less than the award rate and work you to the bone
The definition of a job where you are just a number. bad work environment, long shifts, and breaks that are too short (5 minute breaks). you stand in one spot all day working as fast as you possibly can. only do it if you have to.
Within in 2 years working there no time off. Had the Easter break and when returned was giving marching orders
Long hours, after hours calls break downs, not compensated for any after hours work. With QLD being the head office it was difficult to have things carried out in Melbourne as it would of been in QLD. No support from Management and no help.
Salary includes superannuation which is low. Constant expectation to work overtime and management can be bullies. The southern plants is a boys club and the northern plants just don’t care about you. I wouldn’t work here long term. Corporate office have no idea what they are doing. On a positive note the company progresses all the time so if you are wanting to gain experience quickly on a project this is the place to be.
Lots of projects so can gain valuable skill set
Long hours, no work life balance, low salaries, management are bullies.

good place to start work life with stability and opportunities to every one to develop their skills in different areas and positions, the company needs to improve in some politics and improve salaries.
The only part is that company don't let you grown up, dones't matter if you work hard to be successful or different in what you do, the meaning of it is that is always required experience to do that role, how could we if ara willing to gain or learn new experiences.
working At JBS. It offers you many opportunities to learn and seek new skills. It is a wonderful workplace. the most enjoyable part of the jobs is working alongside with other people from different cultures and it is also a great opportunity to befriend other people and engage in outside activities with work colleagues
Getting Along with everyone
I have been working in the Meat Industry for quite a long time. I have five years plus experience. Loading and unloading from the freezer is the hardest job because you need to use up a lot of your strength to push out the meats.
