Nasty place to work at.
Associate (Former Employee) –  Opelika, ALFebruary 8, 2018
If your not part of the click you will not get the support or training needed to succeed in your job. The leadership in the quality department is a joke! Manager stabs you in the back, the supervisor is nasty to the employees and gets away with it and the employees themselves backstab each other left and right. The plant is brand new the problems come from the staff that is actually from another plant in Georgia.
Pros
Free lunches for employees
Cons
Back stabbing people

Warehouse Associate (Former Employee) –  Garner, NC 27529January 11, 2018
Golden state foods is a very good place to work. The faster you work, the quicker the time flies by. And before you know it, you cleared out everything that needs to be shipped. Very humble people there.

Senior Corporate Accountant (Current Employee) –  Industry, CAJanuary 6, 2018
Golden State Food is a great company to work for. They value
their associate's hard work and often show appreication by providing
free lunch and snacks once a month. They also have a great charity program (GSF Foundation). The foundation helped lots of kids among the neighbor schools by giving away bikes and backpack with school supplies.
Pros
Great employee appreciation events

Productive and positively evolving work environmnent
Senior Network Engineer - Consultant (Current Employee) –  Irvine, CADecember 25, 2017
Company is rapidly evolving Network posture from Managed Services to Organic Support.

Management Team is mostly new (in place less than 12 months)

Business growing rapidly, involved with bringing multiple new sites on line in 2017 with more planned for next year.

Most enjoyable part of job is having close involvement with all technologies that must be implemented for a robust secure and high availability network infrastructure.

Order Selector (Current Employee) –  City Industry, CADecember 13, 2017
work hours can be long, but the benefits and pay you get can be worth it at the end. one of the best paying companies in the industry . can find it hard to manage a life style as the hours can be unpredictable at times.

Mechine Operator (Former Employee) –  Conyers, GAOctober 24, 2017
Wouldn’t recommend this job to anyone that wants to live a happy life. It causes plenty of stress due to working 80 to 90 hours a week at times. If you can withstand long days and nights good luck!!

Microbiology Technician (Former Employee) –  Conyers, GAOctober 10, 2017
Employees are overworked! A life-work balance does not exist at Golden State Foods. If you are a temp, be prepared to be treated like scum! Very underpaid, no room for advancement, and scandalous!

Company With Good Intentions
Maintenance Mechanic (Current Employee) –  Industry, CAOctober 9, 2017
I believe the company has good intentions but their way of implementing rules is counterproductive to a positive work culture. it is a very cut throat place where management has little empathy for the average worker
Pros
Union Benifits
Cons
Overtime rules
