    I have been working at Glanbia plc full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Free avonmore food that's it.

    Cons

    Incredibly busy, must take inbound calls make outbound calls (about 50 a day) answer emails and 'chase' supermarkets with orders not in all at the same time. VERY old fashioned slow computers. So bad can barely run the SAP software required to do your job. Toxic backstabbing culture, you really are just a number in this job. Crazy understaffed to 'push profits'. When someone leaves the call centre (usually once a month) their workload 100 calls in and out in a day is dumped on someone else on the team. It's why me and another girl couldn't wait to leave. People are abrupt on the phone and usually speak very broken English. Many won't say hello just bark orders at you in an ignorant manner. Typical soul destroying job. Worst thing however is Glanbia could EASILY make it better. For example more staff, dual screens, faster computers etc etc. Won't happen however. Anything good is kept for the high ups and their millions a year salaries!. Some of the highest paid executives in Ireland Glanbia has.
