Former Employee (Former Employee) – Minneapolis, MN – January 21, 2014
A company that at one time was 'the place' to work. Now along with the recent permanent lay-offs many key people are leaving on their own because they feel the stability is no longer there. Top heavy management (seems like most of the posting for jobs there were for directors or VP's), at times uppper managment not agreeing in meetings(arguing, shouting) which created a hostile work environment at times in front of their subordinates, nepitism, promoting people to management positions only because they were 'owed' something, loose interpretations of policies, and the list goes on.
Comments on this company from some interns were very positive but when you come in as an intern your are given gifts, provided lunches, provided with activities such as bowling, a Twins game, an off-site cooking event - which cost a lot of money on the part of the company.
At the time I worked there - great salary, great benefits, great 401k but all that is gone now with the recent reduction in workforce
With the current state of the company there are too many to list. Such a disappointment

Post was an exceptional place to work until the acquisition of Malt o Meal. Management is unreliable, undependable, and dishonest. What once was a place to do great things is now simply a way to pay the bills.
There was no typical work day during my time at Malt-O-Meal. I was able to learn and grow on the job while I went after new business or expanded existing customers. The workplace culture was people driven. The most enjoyable part of my job was being out in the market talking about Malt-O-Meal with new consumers in the aisle. Until my last sales campaign with Malt-O-Meal we always took a long view on promotional programing which was not typical of the bigger players with bigger pockets. Selling the lower unit price on everyday retails verse selling a deep discount on promoted brand.
Work in a large territory, Lots of crossfunctiuonal interaction
Title and compensation did not grow at the same rate as responsibitlites.
Production Operator (Former Employee) – Asheboro, NC – May 1, 2017
My day started at 5 p.m. I would come in an check inventory to make sure I had all the thing I need for the night. I then used the forklift to load 1500 lb bags of oats into the machine along with furits, flavor.

Great company to work for, providing good benefits in a pleasant work environment. The people are friendly and easy to work with. Management could be more transparent, information is not communicated effectively.
B Operator (Former Employee) – Saint Ansgar, IA – April 7, 2017
its a good place to work i worked on nighth shift so there when-rt alot of people but my coworkers where all helpful and worked well with everyone and made for a good night at work its a little boring but it can be ruff when the machines are not running right
you get to bring home 3 boxs of oat meal when you work
I worked there for quite a few years out of college, I can't speak for Post but Malt-O-Meal has a great culture and good management. The one area was I felt like I peaked out and there wasn't a good direction path for me from the lab since they wont let you go from testing to Scientist, so you reach a plateau where they won't let you go further from there.
Overall great environment and culture to work at
Needs better career paths for developing engineers and technicians
Fast tactical execution is highly-valued, not strategy
Assistant Manager (Former Employee) – Minnesota – March 27, 2017
Safety is first at this company. A good place for working parents as there is a lot of flexibility and work-life balance. You can work from home if needed planned or in an emergency
The location is south of the metro area and the office building has no bells or whistles: no cafeteria, no restaurants near, no fancy furniture, no art on walls, no gym.
If you are a strategic thinker who likes to analyze data, gather information, develop a plan for action and a plan for measurement, briefing and debriefing: this is not a place for you. The company values "getting things done fast" over anything else. A sales-first organization with a family-friendly environment.
Leadership is conservative and most employees are over 30 with kids and live around the area. Everyone knows each other on a first-name basis.
Great work-life balance and family-friendly environment
This company cares about it's employees. This is a great place to work. I feel as if they care about my personal goals and provide developmental opportunities. It's a great culture in that we focus on making employees and their input.
Great people Great Work lots of things changing quickly though
General Laborer / Waste Management (Current Employee) – Asheboro, NC – September 29, 2016
The jobs are great, if you are given the opportunity to learn them. Co-workers are wonderful. The benefits are great but could use improvement. The new attendance policy is very strict and frankly ridiculous. One minute late counts as if you missed half a day of work. If you are late you might as well stay home. If you get sick you better come to work and get everyone else sick or you will get points counted against you. Supervisors are great. Higher management? Not so much, they can't relate to us. They have changed the promotion process as if they follow it, and then just hire whoever they want anyways.
Fair Benefits, Bonus opportunities, Great coworkers, Great Supervisors
Attendance Policy is ridiculous, Strange call out process, Confusion in promotion process
I worked at the plant in ashboro nc let me tell you the night shift sucked no training what so ever and when u had a mess up they wrote u up as not doing your job or falsely marking document alot of employees there will try and get u fired and the night shift manager has no balls what so ever he has no clue what is going on there is alot of bad things happening there that no one sees don't trust them
Sales Representative (Current Employee) – San Francisco, CA – January 26, 2015
Called on independent grocery stores. Sold new items, promotions and executed retail work. Worked with a great sales team and learned much from sales manager. Enjoyed working with accounts to help them grow their business. The job, like any sales job is tough but the rewards are worth the effort put into it.
Packaging (Current Employee) – Northfield, MN – October 21, 2014
A work day at MOM Brands is fun and fulfilling. I learned that it takes a lot to be top notch. Management could be a little better. my co-workers are great people to work with. the hardest part of my job is to keep the cereal safe for others. That I've meet a lot of great people.
