The most useful review selected by Indeed
Full time drivers now replaced with sub contractors. Which is a pity , I thought I could work there until I was 70 , I was wrong . I have thoroughly enjoyed my time at tip top however all full time drivers days are numbered. I need to work for another 20 years, I think tip top will have got rid of their full time truck drivers within 5 years

Unrealistic Timeframes For Heavy Workloads

No matter how hard you work you will not succeed with the unrealistic timeframes that are demanded from you. 4 stores in 3 hours. The Managers do not take into consideration the travelling time between stores. Traffic on the road. 360 units of Bakery products to unpack is equivalent to 1 hour of work. It is not uncommon for big busy supermarkets to have up to 700 units or more each day to unpack. When the work loads are that heavy, and demanding you can never be in and out of a store within an hour, and then back on the road again. The Managers can be rude, and very demanding. They forget you have 1 pair of hands, and 1 set of feet. Unrealistic.

Pros

None

Cons

Treat you like a number

A very family-orientated business

A very family-orientated business. Great team environment. Pleasant team leaders and co-ordinators, who are very understanding. Great team members to work alongside.

Great culture and easy going staff

I liked working at Top Taste because everyone was easy going and management was easy to speak with, also the job was challenging but no too stressful.

TIP TOP is true, Australian iconic, food brand with Safe Environment.

The normal day starts with wearing company's uniform as well as all the required PPE and following safe work practice. Before entering the area washing hands and sanitizing is the first main priorities followed by all the workers. All the workers from different department work collaboratively to meet the production demand. During work all the safety and GMP norms are followed by every individual on site. QC, OH&S inspections are been taken twice a day during each shift. 15-20 minutes, 2 breaks and lunch are provied to each individual during working hours . Management works with production and other department to carry out orders, workplace safety, First-Aid, General product Inspection, Maintenance, operation permits and man-management. The challenging part of the job is to keep the operation running smoothly considering all the pros and cons of the process with zero accident policy. I love my job as it is multi-tasking and needs lot of capability, Stamina, and concentration to conduct different parameters at same time to meet the production goals.

not too bad

good work life ballance but weekends are sacrificed due to supply demand. Very generous with rest breaks, tv and computers in lunch room for staff to use and watch. There is a lot of back stabbing and 2 faced staff members, this includes some managment also. Salary is ok,, could be better but there is opertunity to get regular OT at double time rate.

Pros

not dificult work, plenty of breaks.

Cons

middle managment take care of their own too much, have to be in tbe clicky group to get ahead. Hot work in summer.

productive skill friendly work place

if there is a one day over time work that would make your every day spending easier. Learns how to organize yourself in the Fast Paced Production lines. Some of the machines are hard to operate and the most enjoyable moment for everyone is at the end of the day if no/ not much waste.

Tough fast paced work.

The work was physically demanding, the pace was never ending. There were a lot of different jobs and they were all tedious. Sometime there were early starts and sometime you had to stay back late.

Pros

The pay.

Cons

Erratic Hours.

Long hours on short notice

Start at 4.30 pm and sometimes work through until 3.30 am sometimes depending on whether the trucks were on time or delayed due to traffic congestion.

Bread for days :)

Maintaining bread line plant and machinery nights/days/weekends. I have learned about the baking industry and process, as well as FMCG. Managment are ok, however slightly disconnected from the people on the floor. Culture at tip top is to try and engage the employees to succeed in creating 'everyday moments of goodness' Hardest part of the job is doing night shift roster and being away from family on weekends Most enjoyable part of the job is to see plant reliability to a high standard

Pros

Large company, some skills advancement through courses

Cons

weekend work, night shift

A very enjoyable place to work. Company supplied a variety of foods for quick breakfasts and snacks

A day of interest along with general duties there was always unpredictable challenges, Learned skills in manufacturing, maintenance in both electrical and mechanical and computer skills in an assortment of programs. Management was always understanding helpful and had a strong commitment to the industry which provided an ongoing job satisfaction. The culture was one of ,lest get the job done and done at a high standard and quality. The hardest part was having to leave due to redundancy. Most enjoyable part was getting to work and meeting the other employees with a good attitude to which helped start and end the day and going home with a great sense of accomplishment

Free products to take home, a very understanding management

Cons

none to mention.

did not enjoy working for Tip Top

there is a great divide between the male and female roles. women are put into rolls by management in a way to keep the female/male roles equal but what happens on the factory floor is a totally different to what i think management would like to portray.

Pros

good money when you get the shifts

Cons

poor staff moral
