Gamekeepers beater (Current Employee), NewburyJune 17, 2014
Pros: work with friends and family, good wage, good exercise.
Cons: heavy lifting in hot weather.
I worked here for 3 months carrying out various duties such as:
Collecting bricks and sand, mixing up cement, making tea and coffee and tidying up after work was finished. This work taught me some of the health and safety regulations required for working on a site and helped me build my customer service and communication skills.

I learned how to do – more... most of the different jobs listed above. The management was excellent so I never had any bad experiences and I always knew what I was supposed to be doing and how I was supposed to be doing it. Also, my co-workers were good as they were my family and a friend so we all got along and it made the job easier as I felt comfortable around them.

The hardest part of this job was probably the heavy lifting especially if it was a warm day. The most enjoyable part of this job was the satisfaction on completing something for customers and the whole experience I gained from working here. – less

Laborer (Former Employee), MSMay 14, 2014
Pros: free lunches and a good bonus scheme
Cons: long working hours
In agriculture, and farming, a usual day starts at 5:30 AM, and ends at 9 - 9:30 PM. I used to take care of a dairy farm (about 60 cows) and lead a team of workers to gather crops on field. My daily task involved labor, team leading and driving.
I was able to use my engineering skills to build and repair agricultural machinery, and agricultural structures, – more... and during the free time I used to help my dad to restore and modify old army cars, which we were using in the farm. By using my help, we increased our profit by more than 100%, allowing us to acquire more land and machinery and as a result we use less labor. At the beginning we were using about 9 - 10 laborers, and now, we are using just 3 laborers. – less
