Great co-workers, horrible work environment
Production Operator (Former Employee), Louisville, KyJanuary 9, 2015
First would like to say the co-workers at the plant were great and friendly, with that being said however if you like constant pressure and stress then this is your job, but if you prefer not being pressured and constantly watched and stressed out at the end of the workday this is not for you. Management does not care about the employees, and employees get very little recognition even if they are doing a great job. Benefits were ok but there was little room for advancement. Worked under insane working conditions (e.g brutal cold during the winter time and insane heat during the summer, escpecially in one room that would always be 100+ degrees)

Room for advancing
Associate Buyer (Current Employee), Beloit, WIDecember 16, 2014
Long hours are expected. Boss will likely check if you are in by 8 and stay after 5. Training by throwing you into the fire. Fun, corporate perks like parties and casual Fridays. Frequent changes in processes, must be able to keep up with little guidance and adjust quickly

Brutal Culture / Zero Work-Life Balnce
Analyst (Current Employee), Beloit, WINovember 15, 2014
Pros: benefits, learn a lot, talented work force
Cons: politics, culture, expectations, work-life balance
If you like constant pressure, unclear expectations, zero recognition, and belittling, this might be the place for you. This is a Management heavy organization where politics are more important than process.

However if you enjoy work-life balance, challenging but not overwhelming, recognition of your strengths as well as areas for improvement this is not for you.

Benefits are good though.

Standard manufacturing environment.
Production Supervisor (Current Employee), Melrose Park, ILNovember 10, 2014
A typical day for a production supervisor is arriving 30-60 minutes before your shift starts to get all the information from the previous shift. You'll spend the next 8 hours ensuring the production lines meet their goals as well as fixing any issues that may arise in quality, sanitation, safety, and maintenance. Also, there will be small projects you are tasked with on occasion and these will need to be balanced with your regular duties. Weekend work should be expected every other weekend.

My former employer Wynnstarr was acquired by Kerry. They do not care about their employees.
ACCOUNTS RECEIVABLE COORDINATOR (Current Employee), Congers, NYNovember 10, 2014
My resposibilities were:

Billing
Cash receipts
Collections

Most recently
Payroll

The Management of Kerry does not care about their employees. I enjoy working with my co-workers but they are slowly getting laid off by Kerry with no warning.

I enjoyed working at Wynnstarr/Kerry because I work on my own and get along well with the people I work with.

Not a very good place to work
Production (Former Employee), Calhoun, gaOctober 19, 2014
Pros: good pay
Cons: too much favoritism
If you are a new hire, and don't catch on to the job within their time limit, you get the boot. No matter how hard to do your job. Management is not really good. Some co-workers nice, others not so nice. I enjoyed learning something different but felt disliked and not treated fair. Nothing enjoyable about being with a company that showed favoritism.

Simply Horrible. Run!
Shipping and Receiving Associate (Former Employee), Mecca, CAJuly 22, 2014
Cons: all
No room for advancement. The shipping and receiving manager is unbarrable. She is threatened by anyone with a brain. HR does not have the guts to bring up this BIG issue. They rather keep replacing her assistants than to fire her. Don't even apply.

Kerry keeps its employees in the loop with what is going on in the business with monthly town hall meetings. It has great employee benefits and offsite training twice a year. It has always had an open door policy if an issue should arise.

If its not their way its no way. Place is really dirty and only cleaned when they know company is coming. Plant leaks water like crazy. Needs to be shut down.
