EHS Manager (Former Employee) – Carlisle, PA – August 11, 2015
The location is the largest milk processing plant in the East Coast. It had grown significantly in their productivity but the wastewater management had not been modified to absorb such growth. A typical day at work meant dealing with environmental exceedances and working with authorities to reach an agreement on how to improve the facilities to adequately manage wastewater treatment needs.
Coworkers needed to be educated and re-educated on safe work practies to reduce environmental impact.
Hardest part of the job: protecting the environment and highly protected trout stream.
Most enjoyable part of the job: training employees and achieving change in their behaviors
Working hand in hand with Production, Quality, other departments for a common goal Location achieved GFS Certiciation.
Environmental challenges. Traveling to Ohio to support the other location.
Business Development Services (Former Employee) – Saint Paul, MN – August 9, 2015
Land O'Lakes Inc had a clear mission and values; however, it was not enforced in the portion of the company that I worked in. I worked for a very small group with many cliques that I just didn't fit into. Overall, the benefits were great and flexible, but I think my specific group was poorly managed and lacked organizational structure.
Lead Maintenance (Former Employee) – Hicksville, NY – January 21, 2015
Very Professional place, A lot of trainings is involved but they do not give you the time to practice before a new regulation is applyed. They are going from training to real life application too fast. The work ambiance could be improved. You do not get any feedback on your job. The Company is also very slow to replace a sick employee, witch put the burden on the other employees, sacrificing their safety work conditions
do not give you enougth time from training to application
Stay away from this place. They have absolutely no appreciation for hourly employees.
Production employee (Former Employee) – Spencer WI – October 23, 2014
You cannot work the shift scheduling they use and expect to have any kind of life. You rarely receive a full forty hour week. You will be on call all shifts during the week with no guarantee of 40 hours. If you are not called in during the week you can be expected to be called in Friday night third shift for sure messing up your unemployment and weekend. Human resource department has no respect for employees or what they sacrifice for them working their on call hours. Don't expect to have any kind of family or social life working here. Very poor human resource department.
good pay if you casn manage to get a full week
you may not work during the week but then be expected to work overtime hours on weekends

RED TAPE worst company in Customer Financial Services
Credit Analyst (Former Employee) – Minnesota – April 24, 2014
Cons: overworked, short staffed, very poor management including hr.
No advancement opportunities, co-workers and managers lack relevant and/or college education. Lack real corporate experience. Management micromanages too often and will not relinquish control of the credit and financial customer services to the team. Management also does not take ownership to work the problem if issues develop from lack of proper funding. Implemented 3 strikes rule (and your out) to change management process which indicates a discriminatory practice resides with Financial management from top to bottom. HR refused to address this policy and team surveys do nothing to address the issues within Management. Overall there is a real problem with leadership.
They ask you to stay long hours without overtime, and you have to accept humiliations from management without having any protection, respect or care from the HR department.
It is a typical RED TAPE old fashion company!
overworked, short staffed, very poor management including human resources
good place to work, great pay and excellent benefits

start 11 pm and relief second shift operator, get the shift pass down from supervisor and job for that shift. i learned how run numerous types of machinery in the food and creamery industry. had good and bad co-workers. hardest part was working with employees that were lazy and didn't care about the job task were performing on any given night. the best part of the job was learning alot of different jobs..i like to learn new things
excellent pay and benefits and employee recognition for a job well done
One of the best jobs I've ever had. Typical day included compiling information for the daily weight charts in power point, filing, document control and flow charts. Management was easy to get along with and communicated well.
