I had a great time working for Cambell's Soup. The supervisor was younger than I was and everyday he would come to my post and ask me if I was okay or if I needed some assistance. The reason I got the position as an Operator is because of this test call Workeys and I had scored very high, so I was giving the chance to pick my position. I felt so good about that too. Everyday we had a safety meeting and it was very educational. We learn how to keep the machines running all day long, because any down time would result to being fired. The hardest part for me was to chemically clean the machines. You had to be very careful, because you would have to go into what they call a pit and clean each pipe that went to your mixers with a very powerful water hose with chemicals. The co-workers very polite they would offer to buy lunch or help bring some of those steal barrels that had the ingredients to put into the mixers. Mind you, these barrels with the ingredients was very hard to push or pull at times. They could weigh almost 80 pounds. What I enjoyed the most is that when I had to leave to take care of my grandma who was suffering with Dementia, they all felt my pain and said if I wanted to ever come back to the company they would find a place for me.
3rd Shift Team Lead Warehouse (Current Employee) – Napleon Ohio – July 6, 2016
Shippments change from day to day, we will at times get slammed with orders dropping into the system and have to adjust our work load. There will be times we will need to force overtime early or late. We have a pretty positive workforce for the most part. We like to give our employees a heads up when the ot is coming so they will know to make arrangements as needed, but this isn't always possible. How we work with our employees and they know the work load is heavy it is very satisfying when our team makes the impossible happen.
Preparation Cook (Current Employee) – Everett, WA – February 22, 2016
A typical work day started at 1300 hours with a safety meeting followed with a schedule for soups that needed to be prepped for the day. After that we would get a recipe for those soups. We would stretch and exercise and go to the production floor. The room was set at 36 degrees. We had 7 different stations of prep work. There was the tomato room, dairy, veggies, meat, base, dry, and the can room. I learned how to prep ingredients according to recipes. I learned how to operate a variety of machines like the cheese shredder, the sour cream pump, paste pump, tomato dice pump, oil pump etc. I learned how to break down, clean, and put these machines back together.

Inventory control Facilitator (Intern) (Former Employee) – Napoleon, OH – April 24, 2015
Campbell s was an excellent experience, I enjoyed my co-workers and the environment . I also got along well with upper management. I eventually applied for a management position and was accepted which change my status from hourly to salary. This, I felt was extremely challenging because it kind of broke down some of the relationships and rapport that I had established with many of the hourly employees; however this begin to change after people begin to understand that I was the same genuine , outgoing team player as before. Although management wanted more of a change which seemed to put me in a compromising position
extremely long hours and getting mandated to work over(7) days
I learned all areas of my job. I even trained some new hires. I loved the TEAM work and loved my co-workers. I was always willing to learn new jobs and never minded helping others. I was a floater on the forklift and could do any job in our department.
typically i drove a forklift around and delivered food ingredients to the cooks for soup salsa juices and other products. management was top notch awesome people to work for and with. co-workers were all very energetic and eager to teach. the hardest part of the job were the hours. everything else i thoroughly enjoyed.

Work for 29 years. Enjoyable work. Hated to leave but plant closed. I did many different jobs. Most of the supervision worked with you to get the correct tools to do the job at hand. I ran a casepacker at times. I also operated a case palletizer . I enjoyed that job. We had 2 palletizers each to operate. We worked as a team to keep them running. That kept you busy and moving. I also ran a filler machine.
