I had no problems with farnell packaging other than the fact I couldn’t handle the heat in the plant because I get sick when I get to hot. Pay was good, you even get shift premium when you work nights.
Pros
Everything other than the heat
Cons
The plant gets very hot during summer days

The management is open-minded. They listen to everyones opinion. Although it's a fast-pacing environment, you can ensure the safety of everybody. Everybody is very supportive especially to the newly hired people.

Old family business that want to do everything a certain way. Not open to new ideas or concepts. People there will throw you under the bus in a heartbeat. Not the best place to work but if you click with the in crowd all is good.
Pros
Good pay for the area
Cons

I loved this job and I was great at it. However some of the staff and some of the management were challenging to work with . If you can come in , do your job and go home paying no mind to any one else... This would be perfect for you . The rate of pay is good but there is very little room for advancement in this company.
Pros
Shifts go by fast when there is work
Cons

A typical day at work, prepare myself to receive and match receipts to PO's. Interacting with customer service and scheduling to make sure all is here to produce orders.

Words can not express the patience and understanding the owners have towards their employees. They know every individual by name and make a point to come for a visit to say hi to everyone. When it comes to fantastic communication with every employee this place has hit a grand slam. Thank you for providing me with that stepping stone I needed to become who I am today. :)
Pros
Respectful and understanding of employees
Cons
Tough sleep patterns
