Assistant Lead (Former Employee) – Oak Forest, IL – April 25, 2017
At Legendary Baking I moved up rapidly, from working on the assembly line to eventually being the assistant lead. In this position I kept track of, and filled out the, paperwork of what we used, needed, and completed on the line.
Compensation was given to any employee who couldn't keep up in their department, being moved around until they found their place.
Production Lead Person (Current Employee) – Park Forest, IL – February 17, 2017
I started. Working at Legendary Baking as a Temp employee, within 90 days was hired, became a cream room packer, the following month became in charge of Freezer dept. The following month promoted to Production Dept Lead. I've learned so much there in less than a year. Im currently there and doing a great job in production, thanks to my hard working employees that put lots of effort into these delicious pies we make there. Im feeling blessed for the given oportunity to excel in life. Thanks again Legendary Baking. ANGEL.
At the beginning of each day, we in the batching department would receive a recipe log for one or two products we would be making that day. Each of us would go off individually to make said filling or topping for the production lines. Our main priority for each day was to keep the production lines full of filling or any other product they need to fill their required order for the day, as well as making product preparations for second shift to take over later in the day. In my 17 months of working this job I'd learned to make all of the recipes in batching and operate all machines in that department. Multi-tasking, basic mathematics and lifting 50+ lbs. were very common skills we used each day. Co-Workers were exceptionally enjoyable to work with. We were all fully capable of the labor we were given and we helped one another out if anything became overwhelming. The most difficult part of this job is having last minute changes to the production plan, as it can throw half of the factory into confusion. Communication between management and production workers/leads needs much improvement. However I thoroughly enjoyed learning many things about the manufacturing industry by working in production.
QA Assistant (Current Employee) – Oak Forest, IL – August 6, 2014
There are different people with cultural backgrounds, very nice people, plus very hardworking. The day starts with preperation of equipment and machines. It is a team work and everybody helps each other. Managers are nice too. They know how to keep work organized and productive. They also have a good sense of humor. When I first started my job everybody was greeting me, and it seemed like they knew me for ages! And since then I feel the same atmosphere
Friendly work atmosphere
30 minutes of break :(, I wish it would be max 45 :)
Lead in Production Dept (Current Employee) – Oak Forest, IL – July 25, 2014
Being as a Lead in Production Room, I learned a lot. I met nice people, who are not only hardworking, but also have good sense of humor. Managers are friendly too. They talk in a serious demeanor, but within, they are friendly and opened personalities. Whenever I face difficulties at work, managers are always on time. It's a cool place, you see cultural background and nice people.
Celebration of holidays, like b-days and national events...etc.
Quality Assurance Department Assistant/Line Worker (Former Employee) – Oak Forest, IL – May 5, 2014
You clock in, go to a mini meeting before your shift then everyone is sent to their station/position for the rest of the night or day. I learned how to take micro samples, and how to use a medal detective machine. Managers for the most part were great, nice, helpful. Co-workers were a little hostile some nice, and most were elderly. The hardest part was, to stand in a spot for eight hours doing the same thing, or catching all the batches for a test sampler. The best part was weekly lunch parties.
