terrible place to work
Superpak Specialist (Former Employee), Boulder, COJanuary 29, 2015
Pros: getting a new job
Cons: everything was a con at celestial seasonings
I felt discriminated against.
I had a 99.9% perfect attendance record. The one time I was late my car broke down on the way to work. I was passed over for a permanent position there twice, Every review I got was very good.
A typical day was to report to packaging until I got moved to the tea room. We would get orders ready for shipment. We all worked very hard but were grossly underappreciated.
I learned how to make tea
Management was very bad
Very few of more coworkers lasted more than a month. They were fired very quickly for small mistakes.
The hardest part of the job was working the assembly line.

Poor Management
Production Team Member (Former Employee), Boulder, COSeptember 27, 2014
Pros: good benefits, bonuses
Cons: poor management
Celestial Seasonings has changed management, and since then the quality has become secondary to quantity. The company no longer cares about it's employees. Maintenance of equipment is no longer a priority. Tactics of management are a throwback of the 60's.

Wouldn't Recommend to Anyone
Information Technology (Former Employee), Boulder COSeptember 19, 2013
Pros: people are friendly
Cons: lack of training, penny pinching in the wrong places, poor management, lack of care or concern for employees
I was very excited to start at this company, I was under the impression they were a very people oriented company who cared for their community and their employees.

Unfortunately, my first impression couldn't have been further from the truth. The Celestial Seasonings IT department has terrible management. Their employees are very unhappy, undervalued and under-appreciated.

During the recent horrific flooding we had throughout Colorado, especially in Boulder as the National Guard arrived and police were evacuating people from their homes, Celestial Seasonings deemed it necessary to open the office because "the skies were blue" People who worked in towns that were severely impacted (Lyons, Jamestown, Boulder Canyon) have been "required" to come into the office even if their drive wasn't safe or took several hours each way, because company "policy" is to not let anyone work from home even in the event of a natural disaster.

The dynamics of this department are in shambles, employees have no respect for their management and management has no idea how to lead. The manager of this department is a very nice man, but he lacks the skills and knowledge to lead people in an effective way. As a person or a co-worker, I think he's great. As a manager, he leaves something to be desired.
