Warehouse Prep (Former Employee) – Fall River, MA – October 29, 2013
I enjoyed working for Blount Fine Foods because of the environment.It was a very fast paced company.Production was non-stop,so I stayed busy throughout my entire shift.I enjoyed working as a team player with co workers.The job was very physical.Typically lifting 10-80 pound bags/boxes of ingredients.Which I liked a challenge.The hardest part of this job was probably working a double or overtime.My shift varied from 8-16 hour days most of the time.But again I like a challenge and these days was def the hardest
Machine Operator (Former Employee) – Fall River, MA – February 14, 2017
Basically to keep it short, company is money hungry. Will drive workers to the ground, with very little pay. They will squeeze every bit of life from you and expect you to have no other life besides, Blount. Filled with empty promises from overhead. Will give you the run around. Most PCs are very hard working, yet undermined by men in suits who sit in offices all day. Company is backwards.
I like to work but I didn't like to work here. My managing team was not able to handle the work and made sure that the works knew it. I work at a pinch point where everything came through me at some point and so did all the management and when they were not happy you would feel it.
short lunch and breaks worked 12 hours a day with a 30min lunch
I probably wouldn't refer someone there unless they were desperate.
MACHINE OPERATOR (Former Employee) – Fall River, MA – February 1, 2017
Low pay long hours. Didn't feel like they valued my work. Place is like a revolving door not meant people last. The ones that do sometimes make you scratch your head. Management keep their circle tight. Hard to move up from within the company unless you are very lucky or just stick around for an insane amount of time. Benefits are good but they do not party their machine operators like they should be paid. 100 degrees lifting 100lb barrels of product all day working 10-12 hour days.

Safety Professional Who Thrives on Making Others Better
SAFETY OFFICER (Current Employee) – Fall River, MA – August 22, 2016
Safety is about much more than simply writing, promoting and enforcing safe work policies and procedures. It is about equipping and training others to make smart decisions. As much as I enjoy data mining it is much more rewarding to see expressions of others when they finally understand the safety philosophy and are able to then take that understanding back to their workplace.
Kettle Operator (Former Employee) – Fall River, MA – June 1, 2016
Typical day arriving on time ready for work perform maintenance pre ups on kettles and machines, management assist in anyway possible and co workers are very helpful as well. Communication is a must when working as a team to produce to the maximum and my favorite part of the day was as the end of each shift knowing that we completed our task to standards and more. Doing a good job!
Holidays company gives back.
Management needs to communicate better with employees
Assistant Kettle Operator (Former Employee) – fall river ma – March 11, 2014
A typical day at work consist of mataining a clean work area and operating cooking machines. Ive learned timing is curtail and everything has to be exact. Co-workers kept to them selfs, except my the lead kettle operator. The hardest part of that job was that the floor was always wet made the job slower. The most enjoyable part was that i got a chance to grow in the company from doing sanitation to operating a kettle.
