Enjoyable but hard work.
Pros: free coffee, good pay, short hours.
Cons: shift pattern, lazy employees.
I liked working at Tata Steel. It was very hard, physical labour that entailed a lot of heavy lifting, bending over to package stock and this was very consistent. I was given the opportunity by my co-workers to operate the machines inside the warehouse which I, personally, found very easy to understand and learn. Although I appreciate this, I found the employees treated temp workers a little rough. Having to package four different pallets of steel blanks by yourself in twenty mins before another four come off is back breaking hard work and I rarely got help with that (when I worked on one machine). Apart from that I found them easy to get along with, just lazy. It was hard to package certain items when they come off machines quickly. If there were two of us it wouldn't have been so bad. On the other hand, hard labour and a good wage are the things that I enjoyed. Working hard made the time seem like it was moving fast.
