You will be worked 7 days a week 12 hours a day.
PLW Forklift OPerator (Former Employee) –  Hastings, MNJuly 17, 2017
Welcome to Ardent Mills were you will now be forced to work 12 hour shifts with only 8 hours off between shifts for the foreseeable future. Your family life will be non existent from here on out. Don't take my word for it just ask the aging uneducated workforce of senior employees who think they are something special because they have spent a lifetime in a mill, while their family's have all left and the world has passed them by. I had 17 different bosses in under 3 years which only shows what a catastrophe the front office is in this mess of a workplace. If you want to save your fingers, and back from serious injury you should avoid this place like the plague. At least you can go home feeling safe that you and your family are eating off grade flour that was milled 5 years ago and was just mixed with new flour at roughly a 50 / 50 ratio. Which is then packaged and sold to customers on a daily basis.
Pros
No need for a place to live because this will be your new home.
Cons
Even MGMT uses this place as a stepping stone for better opportunities.

Fast pace workplace
Warehouse Assembly Line Worker (Former Employee) –  East Hartford, CTApril 16, 2017
It's a fast pace work place. involves lot of lifting, teamwork. Standing on your feet for long periods of time, putting together products. Loading trucks unloading boxes off of trucks, using a baling machine and a forklift.
Pros
Great opportunity for overtime and growth within a company
Cons
No job security if you get hurt, or can't keep up with the work pace you'll be replaced
