Balance Labor, Cycle Count Analysis, Traning and Development
Blackfoot East Warehouse Manager (Current Employee) – Blackfoot, Idaho – July 25, 2015
Typically I start my day by reviewing daily orders and labor issues with foreman, ensure daily cycle counts are being completed and that wareshoue is in tour ready state. Throughout the day I balance labor between the two warehouses I manage due to the ebbs and flows of activity.
Current job role allows for personal growth in supply chain management
Not very many opportunities for advancement within the company
Bracket IV Operator Helper (Former Employee) – Rexburg, ID – September 23, 2014
You work seven days in a row then a day or two off then seven more and so on and so forth. you work mornings evening and graveyard shifts REQUIRED and you only get 6 sick days they stay on for a year so say your sick on oct. 3 2014 that doesnt come off your record until oct. 3 2015 you hit 7 sick days and your fired. its hot and sweaty in the building no windows and very dusty in some areas but hardest part of the job is management have to many upper management telling you to do different things and they dont care if your sick or not u have a job to do
Middle Management (Current Employee) – Blackfoot, ID – June 3, 2014
Basic American is filled with great people but they're all leaving. The turn-over rate for middle management is extremely high, mostly because of a lack of advancement opportunities (unless you want to take a lateral move with a pay cut- that's what they deem an "advancement opportunity") and a lack of feedback. The Blackfoot plant in particular is extremely competative and has a back-biting culturemore... where if you don't work a 50 hour work week, you're looked down upon. There is no work/life balance, you're pretty much married to your job whether you like it or not and don't expect yearly raises of more than 1-1.5%, if you're lucky enough to get that. It's very much a place where hard work will NOT get you ahead, instead it's who you know and how well they like you that gets you a promotion. Upper management rarely sticks to a strategic plan long enough to see it through and their "bonus" program for hitting company goals is a joke at best and an insult at worst. The biggest problem with Basic is not the salaries, benefits, or work. It's the culture of competition and uncertainty as to where you stand with HR and upper management. Every day is like walking a gauntlet of judgement and cynicism. less
all of the plant managers are awesome, lots of opportunities to learn, decent salary
human resourses, advancement opportunities, work/life balance is non-existent

Loved working for Basic American Foods and I greatly admire their overall ethics and business practices. They produce an amazing product to the public that not only tastes good but is created with the utmost care and quality.
great hours, close to home, great pay/benefits & a lot of tastings for new product ideas, etc.
