Pros: health insurance, 401k
Cons: unethical leadership, incompetent management
This company markets itself as a Private Label Beverage Manufacturer, but the reality is that they are struggling to regain momentum in the industry as a Co-Pack manufacturer. When I joined the team 2 years ago, they had recently acquired Cliffstar ( a juice manufacturing company). However, they terminated many employees who had the knowledge and capabilities to do the job. My heart goes out to the people who still remain and try to work through the sludge of a mess that they have on their hands. There is no organizational management, and most people have been there 18-20 years, just waiting it out until retirement. The leadership at the company is struggling with unethical and immoral practices. Unfortunately the HR Manager in Columbus was pushed into position from a Consumer Affairs and dry cleaning background, and does not have the necessary skills or training to be effective. The company paid for her to go to school and receive training...but she is an entry level beginner, at best, and does not have the background to aid the company as needed. My advice to anyone looking to work here, is get in, and get out as soon as possible. There is absolutely no room for growth or advancement, so your expectations need to be very low to succeed here. They are operating in an extremely limited environment and have not made the necessary technological advances needed to prosper in the global marketplace.
