Job Work/Life Balance
Few good bosses, horrible human resource department, workers are expendable
Warehouse (Former Employee), Dayton, n.j. – October 3, 2014
Pros: on site cafeteria, good benefits
Cons: can not use your sick days, they are held against hourly employees.
New Management team is horrible, they hire ex military with no production, or business experience to be bosses, most workers are friendly, but there is a lot of nepotism, and favortism, and some charity cases, (people who just show up for a pay check, and bring nothing to the table, as others are forced to work harder to pick up the slack) Humanless – more... resource department. A lot of tattle tales. Alot of brown nosers. – less
i heard this used to be a good place to work, then i also heard about the x military people being made bosses with out any experience in a manufacturing environment, does not make sense, they must get good government kick backs.
The day mostly consisted of entering information into the systems. Some days were slower than others. I had great co-workers and supervisors. They were always very helpful. The hardest part of the job was changing currency to pay vendors or truck drivers, ex: from American dollars to Euros. The best part of the job was that everyone was always helpful. – more... I went into this position not knowing anything about accounting. I learned the basics, which were auditing, spreadsheets, etc. – less
IFF is an exceptional company to work for. They have outstanding benefits and their pay is way above average.
Sales Coordinator (Former Employee), Carrollton, TX – June 15, 2013
Pros: travel, great food and friendly co-workers
My job as a Sales Coordinator was very busy from start to finish, which made the day fly by. I dealt with Sales agents and customers in all aspects that supported sales growth. I was moved up the chain quickly according to the good job I did. I felt I was very appreciated by the management and worked mostly on my own with very little supervision required. – more... It was all fun but the travel involved with sales was awesome. I was able to travel to many different states and stay at great hotels and eat at terrific restaurants! I recently moved from Dallas to Chandler, but if I had not moved I would still be working for them. – less

Shipper / Production Planner (Former Employee), Hazlet, NJ – September 18, 2012
Plenty of work to keep the day going. Its never a dull time there, also everyone is helpful and was able to help train other new trainees. Management was helpful and flexible with work and sick time. I wouldn't say the job was that difficult but i like to say challenging. I got certified for few jobs in the department which would be helpful. The best – more... thing about the job was the employees, everyone was friendly team players. – less
