    Former Employee - Food Production Operative in Spalding, England

    I worked at Bakkavor full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Had some good perks like super discounted food in the staff shop, and had treats sometimes like a free waffle and ice cream for everyone from a posh ice-cream van during the summer, and free Xmas dinner. Also opportunity for overtime if you wanted it.

    Cons

    Team leaders and managers were awful. The team leader on my shift was a complete bully, lazy and never got involved in any work herself, spent the whole day in the smoking hut and tbh was a bit racist. The manager above the team leader was spineless and did nothing about this behaviour.

No appreciation for hard work. Very hard to get legally required PPE. Dumb & very lazy hygiene management on nights. Staff turnover is high for a reason!!!!!

    I worked at Bakkavor full-time for less than a year

    Pros

    Shifts work with some people's lives. Staff shop ok. Some of the staff want to improve the workplace. Facilities quite new.

    Cons

    Simple answer to save money is take away labour to a point where it is unproductive and actually costs more in errors. Instructions come from senior management who will not engage and only want robots to deliver their message of my way or no way while the operation struggles by understaffed day day. Select few have been there so long the slip under the radar or the senior managers know are too hard to remove and so there is no consistency in workload, targets or performance.
