Assistant Bakery Manager (Former Employee) – Kenosha, WI – July 24, 2017
Overall this is great company with good benefits. Company is very involved with the community and giving back. They sponsor a lot of events therefore their employees get a lot of free stuff and free entrance into local events. Company really lives up to their cultures and encourage all associates to think like owners. Company needs to train managers a litter longer to ensure they are ready to take off running when they hit the floor

They are who they are. Transparent company. CEO very hands on. Work day varies, slow days can be brutal. Great culture brings great co-workers and guests. If you don't enjoy your job here, it's not the company for you.
Long hours for management at times. Slow/down time is brutal.
Bagger (Former Employee) – La Crosse, WI – July 13, 2017
Festival is a very conservative place. The rules are ridiculous and they gave you no creative freedom. I constantly was in trouble because of little things. I was yelled at for my shirt coming untucked, wearing the wrong type of pants, not having a belt. Just little things most people don't really notice. They thought I was unreliable and lower because of my severe anxiety from trying to balance work and school. I tried my best, but sometimes I needed a mental break day. It was not a good experience. The job itself was fine. Bag groceries for people, smile, and tell them to have a nice day. I met some kind people there. Overall though, don't work here. The management is mostly what drove me away. There are much better places to work, trust me.

My day at festival foods is nice and outstanding nice people who understand you and tbe customers and very polite.i learned not to be so shy and speak up so people can here me basicly come out my shell.theres really nothing hard about it.but the most enjoyable park is the customers and helping them get wat they need.
Bagger/Cart Pusher (Former Employee) – White Bear Lake, MN – June 21, 2017
when I was employed here I was younger which could caused a skewed review, but as far as management went, 3 of my 4 managers were very unfriendly and unwilling to work through certain problems that were brought up.
Stocker (Former Employee) – Sheboygan, WI – June 21, 2017
Festival Foods is a great first job. All employees are very kind and helpful, and motivate you all of the time. Transferring from one department to another is an easy task too. The training process is very good because they have hands on and computer training.
I worked part time, averaging 25-30 hours a week, and Although they did allow for a reasonable scheduled that was flexible enough, After 11 months of working their I had revived one raise of 5 cents. Their was no employ discount or any other benefits. It was way to demanding work for 7.85 an hour.

Festival is a great starting job. Its flexible easy and fun. Thought the wages are anything to be desired unless you plan on moving up to the upper management, its not a bad place to be. I had a lot of fun working for Festival foods. I would even go as far to say I wouldn't mind working for Festival again in the future.
Senior Part Time, Frozen Food/Dairy (Current Employee) – Onalaska, WI – June 7, 2017
A solid college job. Benefits are a joke for PT employees. 5% discount card doesn't pay for tax. Free lunch if the store hits mile stones. Upper, upper management has no experience in the grocery business due to the reason they are all the CEOs friends when growing up. You will hear how the company is doing great and the ESOP is growing, but the company will NOT give anything more than a 3% raise. Rate of standard of living is 5%, good thing you get that discount card...
Free lunch, any time off, anniversary bonus
Better than walmart, no benefits for part time employee, only discount is a 5% card that doesn't pay for tax, PRICES are too high

You have to push all of the carts inside within 30 min. And during summer and winter it's completely horrible to do because you'll get sweat stains on your khakis or be frozen. They will make you do it even if it's raining cats and dogs. No one wants a sweaty or soaked employee to bag their groceries. I was a freshman in high school and was treated like I was a complete hooligan just because I was young, even though I did nothing wrong. They favored pretty employees over the hard working ones. And most of the managers didn't like me just because I wasn't talkative. Just because someone is shy does NOT mean that they are a bad worker.
Disrespecful to everyone, poor pay, played favorites, and careless
