Working at Amaro Foods was a great experience for me I've learnt so much n I developed some skills there. It's one of the food production companies tht supplies such big retailers like Wooliesn and other major companies in SA.Safety and Hygiene especially in food industry are key as well as a dedicated employee. I've learnt that you must always deliver quality to customers.

During my first day at Amaro I was introduced to the workers and they explained everything to me, the way the work, what they expect, company's vision and mission. I learned that team work is very important in the work place. Every culture is accommodated. I never came across any difficulties. I enjoyed working there because every one is friendly and accommodative.

Your day would start with a morning meeting discussing the previous day activities and the plan forward for not repeating the same mistakes.
Completely different setup compared to other industries that i have been, learnt a lot about the baking industry

Very diverse setup being in the Killarney Gardens area.

The hardest part is the capturing of work on the database seeing that you are mostly on the production floor where your span of attention is needed.

Traffic is a mess, arriving and leaving.

The most enjoyable part would be when the shift is running OK and the waste is minimal.
Pros
None
Cons
Very long hours and very little time for rest.

My day starts with doing start up checks in my NPD room from there i check my emails and plan my task for the day, arrange with the oveners and scaling persons if i require anything from them for the day.

I learnt how to deal with different people from different back grounds and cultures, respect is important in the work place, time management.Respect is important when working with people because if you respect each other then you work in a free and productive environment.


I would say the hardest part in my job is getting everything done on time especially when there are not enough resource accommodated for you alone for example: having to use the oven while they are fully booked , getting hold of stuff to participate in the factory trials while they busy with production and orders.


i really enjoy working on projects that are challenging and exciting makes one think and go beyond their comfort zone, creating something and making it a success.
Pros
Educational training's
Cons
Long hours
