Would work there anytime again. Reason I left was purely personal. I had a brilliant team and a phenomal manager. The reason I left was due to my wifes nedical condition and nothing else.

It was challenging but the senior was impossible. Otherwise the work was interesting and I would have grown a lot and I enjoyed working with everyone else, except for the boss lady. The other downfall was the salary it was too low for my expertise and experience.
The targets set out by the supervisor were reachable.

I learned to pace myself well, the admin and filing on top of medicals and having to go schedule the employees before the medical was also cool.

Sovereign foods is a very vast company with its branches and exciting tours for the management to mingle. At work things change and the pressure is always something that is there for you to be on your toes at all the time. Necessary channels for each and every issue you come across are enforced to be followed and no jumping. Encouragement from the senior managers is always rendered to pull your socks at any state.
Skills and development are in place to improve and develop yourself at an advantage of the company improvement.

Work at sovereign foods is very hard and more hard for pullers because we are working in the freezer fridges most of the time. Night shifts are also have equal time as day shifts and we are working 12 hours a day for 8 days per fourth night

Is the meat; productiom; there are packers who pack the meat to the 2kg/5kgs and it goes to the sealer to seals the plastic bag; to the polybag fillers where they put inside the bag those plastic bag the bag is 20kg and from them it goes to the boxing team where the bags will be packed to a pallet
I learned work with time there and be fast and being jfast leaner and become so strong there in a way I can able to work anyway from my experience there

Management is so nice when production is going smooth as normal but they push when the production is slowly

The hardest part is that the place is so cold and sometime there is no time to.go home you work until you finish and there are break downs from the machine

When you dedicate yourself to.the job is just so nice because the people are friendly I sometime miss the place
Pros
45 mimutes lunch
Cons
10 hours

A lot of work to be done, but never to difficult if you are willing to learn everyday and giving your utmost best. The harder you work, the better you become at it, and then it becomes easier. And recognition will be given.
