Batching/Lab operator (Current Employee), Middleboro, MA – October 19, 2013
Days are long, but you do leave for the day with the satisfaction of completing a hard days work. People are kind with the given exceptions. We do spend 12 hrs a day together up to 72hrs a week. Bound to get on each others nerves from time to time. Hardest part of the job is the lack of a life outside work. Just so many hours. I love the different challenges – more... I encounter as I learn more of the process for making Craisins. – less

Cons: none that i know of at this time
Good place to work. Learned a lot as I performed different jobs during the harvest period. Working conditions were good and I appreciate the quality conditions of the company. The convenience of the location of the Tomah plant is a plus as I live on Hwy. 21 just across the road from the plant. The plant is within walking distance and I could be on the – more... job in a matter of five- seven minutes...cost effective for Ocean Spray as well as for me. – less
