Machine Operator / Shipping and Receiving / LTA (Current Employee) – California – October 11, 2017
Great company, work environment is great, management very supportive. You can move up in the company. Most of manage at one point was entry level so understanding when things don't go right. Management and the company are very transparent no surprises everything is communicated very well.
Packaging (Former Employee) – Tomah, WI – October 9, 2017
There were several different positions in the packaging part of the factory. There was a station where you sort through all the berries, then you go over to stack boxes and then place the boxes on a pallet and tape them up.

Warehouse Worker/Forklift Operator (Former Employee) – Las Vegas, NV – September 19, 2017
At Ocean Spray I learned how to operate forklifts,pallet jacks, palletizer and how to load trucks by weight. The management team was really involved with their employees. You could go to them at anytime and get any problem solved. They not only helped with work problems they also would take the time to talk to you if you had a personal problem. This made the work place a fun place to go and minimized the stress level.
Excellent management team, great benefits, job sccurity
Resource Technician (Former Employee) – Kenosha, WI – September 11, 2017
Being a temporary student helper was rough for pay but I learned a lot like how to use some machinery and how making the products worked from start to end. Management was the best part about 3rd shift because they were the most easy going and left me alone to do my job. the hardest part was the hours, third shift in the dead of summer when it was hot was tough and then trying to balance a personal and family life when people are on a normal schedule was hard. My co workers were great third shift, it was a lot of fun working with them because we were all sleep deprived anyway.
Office Personnel (Former Employee) – Wisconsin Rapids, WI – September 6, 2017
The benefits and wage was competitive at this place of employment. Treatment of employees was not consistent from location to location. Corporate seemed to work in their "own bubble" without much support to the on site locations.
Fine to work for- management hates young professionals
Administrative Assistant (Current Employee) – Lakeville, MA – August 24, 2017
It was a good stepping stone. They could use better management and are in need of more career advancement opportunities. There is a general lack of policy adherence from department to department. Communication could be better distributed.
If you are willing to take direction from a group of managers that are generally clueless in terms of who and what they are hired to oversee and inspire then you will probably be welcomed with open arms. If you are a genuinely a thoughtful person who wants to make things better and challenge the status quo then prepare to be met with some resistance. The Leadership team sticks together, which would ordinarily be a good thing, except that they are more concerned about their own path to success at the expense of anyone who questions or tries to suggest a different trajectory other than the one they administer. In other words, they feel threatened by anyone who does not resemble a witless, subservient and highly impressionable male or female and if you are not willing to conform then consider your days numbered. Not a place to thrive and spread good will. Very cut throat and mean spirited behavior. A regime more than a productive place to grow and prosper.
Operations Resources (Former Employee) – Tomah, WI – August 12, 2017
Ocean Spray was a great opportunity for the rural area it is in. The benefits are fantastic and start from day one. It is a secure place to work if you desire to work in a food production facility your entire working life. Chances for advancement in production are good but you will not go further than production in the company without a college degree. If I had not relocated from Tomah, WI to Beloit, WI, I would have stayed with the company.
Above average pay for the area. Excellent benefits.
Very fast paced working environment in the a food processing facility can be dangerous.
fast paced leaning curve and very smart co workers when you got into a jam and needed some advice
