Worked with a lot of fun friendly people
Assembler 2 (Former Employee), Zeeland, MIApril 17, 2015
Pros: overtime without having to work 40hrs.
Cons: reduced benefits, pay wasnt good, poor raises.
I worked for SaraLee Foods for 3yrs, I like that I was able to get health benefits the day I started. I worked with a lot of fun and friendly people. The area that I worked was very cold and required a lot of heavy lifting. I had great benefits up until the last year that I worked there when a lot of changes were made.

I started working at Sara Lee because I had to support myself/daughter. I enjoyed working different job tasks through out the years. I learned great manufacturing skills. I worked around a lot of good people. The hardest part of my job was the long hours.

Sara Lee Bread
Puller/ Lead (Former Employee), Anaheim, CAMarch 17, 2015
A simple pulling job. We unload the trucks that bring the bread, after unloading, we organize the bread in order to make things easy on us to find the item or unit. Once everything has been pulled, we set all the orders out in another room for the delivery drivers to pick up. During the time the drivers are there, we help out the drivers with any question and also start to clean up the warehouse so we can be ready for the next day.

Pros: benefits and money

This job to me was very organized, fun, and the most thing that sticked out was they had their own cafeteria and 300 doors. They gave you the chance to make whatever type of paycheck you wanted to see depending on how you worked and how consistent you could be with it

Evil Company
Inventory Control Clerk (Former Employee), Saint Joseph, MOFebruary 24, 2015
Pros: pay was ok.
Cons: no chance for advancement. no support from management. heavy workloads and short hours.
I hated every minute working for this company. They would pile on more and more work while giving us less time to do it. Internal promotions were almost non existent. Management's philosophy was to say one thing and do something different.

Productive and safe enviroment with packing machines.
Pelletizer/Infeeder (Current Employee), Newbern, TNFebruary 23, 2015
My everyday routine at work is making sure I have on all my PPE which is hard hat, gourmet coat, safety glasses and steal toe boots before I go out on production floor. All employees has to wash there hands before returning to the floor every time you have to leave the floor. I learn something different everyday, but more importantly I learned how to be very careful around big machines and how to be very clean around food. The management at our workplace is great. They make sure everything is running smoothly like it suppose and they always teaches us SAFETY first. I'm an outgoing person so I get along with people well and never let anything get to me so my co-workers are very friendly and helpful. I don't think its a hard part of my job but the only thing is how long you stack boxes. Sometimes you can stack boxes for 3 hours and that start hurting your leg and back I think that's the only hard part about it.The most enjoyable part of the job knowing different things you can do to help the job better and save money and also getting bonuses for are good recognition.
