Human Resources Manager (Former Employee), Rancho Santa Margarita, CASeptember 11, 2013
Worked thru the transition of business that was acquired. The transition from a small business with 65 employees was much different and difficult for a lot of employees to handle coming to a company with over 20,000 employees.

The type of work I enjoy has been out sourced.
Bookkeeper, Payroll Backup (Current Employee), Dallas, TXMarch 5, 2013
Pros: i get 4 weeks of vacation
Cons: i work during lunches, breaks
This company purchased the original company I worked for. They have outsourced the AP and AR departments, therefore I am doing other things. Co workers are great. New bosses are lazy. They expect 10 to 12 hours a day from you and then take more work home with you. My overtime last year was almost equaled my gross income.

buyer/planner (Former Employee), Kerry Ingredients - MichiganFebruary 26, 2013
Cons: long hours, lack of management support, little training, oppressive environment
High turnover. Employee burnout is common. Office environment is rather shabby. Work standards are high - which is good - however, managers blame their shortcomings on staff rather than owning their own mistakes. There is little support from upper/middle management.
Good training for food safety, good overall safety standards, poor supervision and management – more... from the top down. This was a few years ago so hopefully things are different in 2013. I understand there is a new plant manager there now. – less

Jxxx – April 19, 2013

This individual never took responsibility for their mistakes and always blamed it on others when all the facts shown it was them. Furthermore, was not invested in the job nor took a interest to really learn it which created issues in performing to standards accustomed in the position. In addition to the poor attitude nearly cause service level to drop by 25% due to out of stocks. I heard there is a good staff and a supportive management team that is thriving since this individual left the company.

Watching growth of the company that reflects on the employees as a team.
Labor Technician (Former Employee), Ste. Genevieve,MO.January 3, 2013
Pros: finding products you help make on the store shelf.
Cons: working in extreme hot conditions
Many different company owners gave new meaning to "challenges". Management personnel was changed often. Some for worse some for better. But, for the most part the company grew larger with different types of food products. Working in food production was a good way of teaching me patience in many different areas. Certain ingredients worked better than – more... others at different temperatures. Always trying to boost production by useing different ingredients or suppliers became a tough job. With hot temperatures production often slowed. These food products moved slower on production lines makeing it difficult to meet production numbers. Often it took physical labor to move these products on conveyors . It took the help of all of the co-workers to make the product reach the packaging box. – less
