Definitely a wonderful company with a small plant feel. Very laid back yet busy place to work, high expectations for employee capabilities. Their only weakness is the structural design of their management staff and shareholders of the company itself but all in all it was a very rewarding experience.
Louisiana - Route Sales Supervisor (Former Employee) – New Orleans, LA – January 11, 2017
My day begins at 3 am every morning and I've not had a weekend to myself in the last 15 years.
I have had opportunity for advancement and management sans compensation for added responsibilities. It is with a heavy heart that it is time to move on and seek greater challenges and opportunities elsewhere.
Manager (Former Employee) – Omaha, NE – July 22, 2016
In November 2015 there was new executive leadership, hired for the Omaha division along with new HR. Since then the turn over has doubled. The environment changed to a political, good old boy club and micro managing culture. it literally was like walking on egg shells every day. After a while, it starts to wear you down, no ones health is worth the stress full work environment.
Financial Analyst / Accounts Payable / Payroll (Current Employee) – London – May 24, 2016
The office I work in is very relaxed and a good environment. The only problem I have with the company is that I was promised advancement but about year after I started working there, the corporate office made the decision to downsize our office staff and move most of our office functions to Dallas Texas. I was one of the very few that was chosen to stay but it left no room for advancement within the company.
Director Of Sales (Former Employee) – Dallas, TX – October 18, 2016
The Management teams set unrealistic revenue growth expectations, $150 million to $300 million in on year, and as a result the day to day stress level was high and goals were unachievable. The company ended up missing the 2016 goal and it resulted in a 20% reduction in force while management maintained their jobs.
Borden was a great company to work for, i enjoyed working with great co-workers and very supportive company to grow with. They offered great benefits to their employees and always made sure the employees were happy.
I worked with very pleasant people and had great respect from the employee's

District Manager (Former Employee) – Columbus, GA – March 19, 2016
The typical work day involved checking my distribution centers in Albany, Columbus, Macon and Valdosta, Ga. No two days were ever the same. There were always new opportunities and problems to solve. Management did a good job of providing you with the tools needed to get the job done. Co- workers were always willing to help The most enjoyable part of the job was meeting new people. The hardest part of the job was having to terminate employees.
Raw Material Handler (Former Employee) – Dallas, TX – September 16, 2016
as a raw materials receiver you have to work out in the elements. on the weekend you are pretty much by yourself doing your job and the qc job also. there is a lot of going up and down stairs all day but as long as your not afraid of a little work then this is a good company to work for.
Cooler Supervisor (Current Employee) – Tulsa, OK – August 13, 2015
My work day consists of documenting work completed and supervising employees to the standard and guidelines of the company. While working here, I have learned alot about prioritizing and time management. Also, my communication skills have increased. Most workers here have a great attitude, but the hardest part of my job is dealing with those with a negative attitude. I love coming in to work knowing that I am a big contribution to this company.
