Poor place to work

Rated 5 out of 5

Don’t bother working here, you might be lucky and get a decent job out the way of the management….. but as a new starter I doubt it.

Never have I worked in such a place as to were certain people get away with doing sod all, yet others get nothing but constant hassle all shift. I am sure Pepsico is a good company to work for, just not the Skelmersdale site.

Pros

None

Cons

Long hours, poor shift pattern, back stabbing culture

To many meetings and nothing followed up

Rated 2 out of 5

Worked there fo 15yrs and was doable at the beginning, then holidays got less manning got cut back but still expected the operator to work at the same pace, lean came along/time in motion etc and meaningless meetings which was 100% waste of time and effort, I would never go back there now I have left. 8hr days for me and definitely no 12hr nights/days

Pros

None

Cons

Long unsociable hours including weekends bank holidays and working nights over the Christmas period

No two days are the same

Rated 3 out of 5

It isn’t the worst place to work by any means however it isn’t the be all and end all. Levelled or salaried employees above level 4 are treated far better than those below them. This is the same for both office and factory staff. If you work a solitary role, for example, you are one of one, there is very little progression due to the “needs of the business”. However, you do get a lot of freedom and you are able to manage your own workload as opposed to being micromanaged.

Pros

Free crisps!

Cons

Very long hours Unpaid overtime Salary is not competitive!

Steady

Rated 3 out of 5

Overall a steady place to work. Do your job and no one will hassle you as they would at other workplaces. Realistic job expectations and realistic chance of progression.

Cons

Long hours, shift working including bank holidays and Christmas period

Great company, Great people and Great leadership Team!

Rated 5 out of 5

Pros
