Worker (Former Employee) – Monroe bakery – December 4, 2015
Management doesn't care about the workers. They don't like to hire full time employees so you won't get vacation or holidays or benefits. If you can get in full time you won't get a fair pay rate or any training. Nobody seems to know what they are doing and everyone has a really bad attitude towards the company and management.
phone rep (Former Employee) – Iowa City, IA – January 5, 2016
This company makes a lot of money. i remember gettingthe catalogs when I was little saying I wanted to work here. Well that dream ame true. In all honesty it was a nightmare! Don't work here, training sucks. It could be done in 2 days. They drag it out. Systems are antiquated, and slow.
Low pay, temp not really full time, to many to list
credit specalist (Former Employee) – clinton – August 3, 2014
in Clinton they cut workers hours yet still hire people.Upper management has no organization skills, some supervisors have no idea what they are doing, you hear 10 different answers. They dont follow through, have to constantly remind them of something or something is not working, people are lazy.

Even though you work year-round you are still classified as a "temporary" employee so they don't have to pay you benefits. They deliver the Christmas spirit by making you feel like you work for Scrooge.
Merchandising office (Former Employee) – Monroe, WI – December 19, 2014
The hardest part of the job, If you choose to work here, guaranteed. Will be trying to function in a toxic work environment. It is a totally dysfunctional organization.
The work culture is totally build on fear and insecurities. Every Department seems to establish their own rules, resulting in entire sectional groups functioning as "floating islands."
Do NOT ever make suggestions, you will be a trouble maker and not well liked. If you work up the ladder, you WILL be training your replacement. No one ever has actually had a "review" or "real" career plan. But everyone just receives a bonus.
If you choose to go to HR with a concern- Be very careful here. Do not trust them. If the concern comes off as a complaint, they will take your documentation and turn the tables on you. Resulting in being totally "black-balled."
You will never see the President. He is not visible at all. Never.
I've become friends and see many people outside the work place. Genuinely wonderful people that I trust. But seriously, we ALL talk about it. The whole town does. It's middle management. Very 70's cliquey "boys club" management model.
If only they can rid themselves of the bullies in middle management who actually run the Company. Before it's too late.
