No Ethics, Work Hours Inconsistent, No Appreciation
Production/Processing Worker (Former Employee) – Allendale, MI – June 20, 2017
Food manufacturing plant with little down-time but high sanitation expecations, so always a stressful environment. No job security. A lot of the workers try to do the minimum and are not held accountable. Management has poor ethics, whatever it takes to get product out the door, including marketing product as "Kosher" when it really wasn't (deceiving a rabbi in the process). Customers have specifications for their cheese products, but there are ways to circumvent these specs and you can bet it is done (seen it first-hand).
Workers are encouraged to work safely, but policies are applied as management sees fit. If you are a friend to management personnel, a worker in a valued position, chances are pretty good you'll be treated differently. But you could also get walked out the door at a moment's notice, even if you accidentally forgot a safety procedure.
Hours inconsistent, low morale, poor ethics, highly stressful environment
