The people are the saving grace if you dont get along with them quit and also if your injured dont expect special treatment. Overall ok experience but not something too recommend

This job is not for the faint-hearted. With the fast-paced enviroment you end up finding yourself covered in blood and other bodily fluids. with shifts running up to 12 hours its a boring and hard job

It was fun and and loud with everyone laughing and singing and shouting random stuff all the time.

I enjoyed working there, although I need a job that I can progress in, and because of the hour rate for my age, and as I moved out and was paying for all my expenses, the pay wasn't enough.

Great to work for, just no balance between parenting and working. Long disruptive hours to work being a single parent. Fantastic money and very stable.
Pros
Great shift lengths
Cons
Bad start times.

Very volatile environment, every one seemed angry and treated new people appallingly , was verbally abused and sworn at by a team leader regularly, in front of everyone , no support from HR , always told you where going to be sacked , over all would not recommend to people for employment
Pros
None
Cons
Too many to mention

No waiting, regular shifts. However, the day time and the night time is changed every other week. Your biorhythm will be broken. 그래도 세 달만 참고 일하면 세컨비자가 나옵니다~ 화이팅!ㅋㅋ

This is not your average meat works. It is a lot harder then most but the team is very supportive. The pay is not very good, u can earn the same as a supervisor there as a slicer makes at ACC. it is a good place to start because you get to advance a lot there and learn everything unlike other meat works were u spend a life time on one job (teys bros). the work is very hard but it prepares you for other meat works as everything just gets easier when u leave :). Only bad thing is the paperwork u have to fill out once a month. very long and the same questions over and over again.
Pros
Great learning experience, close team
Cons
paper work and money are bad

A typical day at work started with truck prestart check manifest and delivery dockets drive to butcher shops from the Gold Coast to Rockhampton delivering body beef, lambs, pigs and carton meat. Day time and night deliverys with keys. Unloading of truck in the yard washing of the truck and preloading for ather drivers.
I learnt about time and fatuige managment how to drive a forklift how to load a truck to a manifest.

Management was good however very demanding at times.

Co workers were a great bunch of blokes willing to lend a hand if needed.

Never starting the shift the same time every day and the 80 to 100kg pieces of body beef to be carried of the truck in the middle of the night by your self.

Job satistfaction and the challenge of delivering up to 18ton of meat to the customers with out any mistakes and the customer relations

and frendships built along the way.
Pros
social club events and staf bbq
Cons
long and inconsistant starts
