Lacks Consistancy
Office Personnel (Former Employee) –  Wisconsin Rapids, WISeptember 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.
Pros
benefits, wage
Cons
inconsistant management

Fine to work for- management hates young professionals
Administrative Assistant (Current Employee) –  Lakeville, MAAugust 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.

Management has no Soul
Administrative Assistant (Current Employee) –  Henderson, NVAugust 13, 2017
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.
Pros
free coffee
Cons
blame game tactics

Great Place to work for the area.
Operations Resources (Former Employee) –  Tomah, WIAugust 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.
Pros
Above average pay for the area. Excellent benefits.
Cons
Very fast paced working environment in the a food processing facility can be dangerous.

Quality Assurance Technician (Former Employee) –  Henderson, NVApril 20, 2017
I learned how to work under strict time constraints and still deliver in a timely manner. Management was always fair and always stressed the importance of safety and quality. Thus, became the culture in the workplace. The hardest part of the job were the 12+ hour shifts. The most enjoyable part of the job were my teammates.
