Would not condemn anyone to work here
Laborer Worker (Former Employee) –  Belmont, WISeptember 15, 2017
The work place might be clean but one can get hurt easily and can get heatstroke very easily while working here and its extremely loud as well due to all the machines around you all the time. Plus there were also bugs in the walls where the cheese was being stored. (used a chemical to clean the empty rooms and had worm like bugs wriggling out of cracks in the walls)
Pros
decent health and dental plus decent pay
Cons
everything else

Decent company if you don't mind the work
Curing Room Operator (Former Employee) –  Belmont, WIJuly 25, 2017
I was with Lactalis during my college years. It started out as a borderline horrible job and the manager was the worst. I became accustomed to the duties and the poor manager was eventually fired.

They were more than flexible with accommodating our schedules. Decent pay and fair amount of time off. Yes, the management staff is heavily French influenced as Lactalis is a French-based company (headquartered in France). Two of the best managers I had there were foreign (French & German). Advancement is possible if you have a good work ethic and put your time in. I was offered a promotion, but turned it down as I was soon relocating within the state.
Pros
Decent pay, good time off, great flexibility
Cons
Manual labor, high turnover (no work ethic), factory job

Big on learning, low on fun
Président Cheese Marketing Intern (Current Employee) –  New York, NYMay 15, 2017
Worked with a lot of great people. The office could be a little challenging because of the international atmosphere- specifically if you didn't speak French.

Learned a ton about brand management and interns were trusted manage some their own projects.

Minimal time off when it comes to company wide vacation days.

Never able to complete anything.
Maintenance Technician (Former Employee) –  Belmont, WISeptember 13, 2016
Worked there quite awhile, the French mentality for management is werid. Also very hard when every department manager is either French or European and the only department manager that is American is in maintenance. Extremely high turn over rate due to techs getting fed up with the consistent inconsistencies. Wouldn't go back if I had to. Treated like a dog and paid like one also. Benefits were great but it's like having a mansion with no heat or electricity. What good are the benefits if your treated like a slave.
Pros
Great benefits
Cons
French, cheap, high turnover over 30% every year.

Would not recommend working at Lactalis!!
Former employee (Former Employee) –  Buffalo, NYApril 17, 2016
Too many managers who cannot manage, zero work/life balance, non-respectful work environment, stressful, workload imbalance, prefer young workforce, nobody to goto in human resources with work problems, you're golden if you're French or are a manager favorite.
Pros
Cafeteria
Cons
Too many to list

It will take time to establish corporate culture for Lactalis and become mature organization.

Many layers of management and lack of leadership. Not very exciting work, projects take forever to complete. Some managers are great though
