Developer / Lead Business Systems Analyst (Former Employee) – St. Louis, MO – September 17, 2016
One of the best parts of my workday was interacting with my coworkers. We would hold discussions about upcoming technologies and how we could incorporate them into our workload. The hardest part of the job was that all my coworkers were located in St. Louis, MO. Since I worked out of my home in Utah I would only get to see them in person once every couple of months.
No air conditioning or air circulation in production. very hot on the production floor not including the ovens. I worked there as a technician for two years and I come with a long technical background, yet I was treated like a complete idiot and outsider. No opportunities for advancement and training and support is extremely lacking.
The pay was good
Management is very disorganized and turnover is very high in all departments
Machine Operator (Former Employee) – Boise, ID – July 19, 2016
The only good part of working for Post was the awesome people I got to work with. Since they never intended to keep the plant we never had a chance for advancement or learn new things. Basically It SUCKED!
Company lied, Management had severe favorites issue, most time spent cleaning.
I enjoyed working on the production equipment. The equipment is new and computerized. A typical day at work was responding to trouble calls and performing preventive maintenance. I learned more about food processing and GMP's.
Good work life balance. Provides employees with tools for learning on the job and workshop training. Productive and fun workplace. Has positive outreach to the community engaging employees in volunteer work with Habitat for Humanity and Morristown Soup Kitchen. Also provides employee's children annual exposure to corporate business operations. Celebrates monthly birthdays of employees for morale booster and better work productivity.
The company gives employees free promotional items
Great company hated to see the Modesto Plant close.
Buyer (Former Employee) – Modesto CA – October 3, 2015
Corp big shots closed the plant, their loss. Modesto Plant was a great place to work. Corp politics at their best, no reason to close a plant that was successful and keep other plants open that are NOT in the USA!
Production Associate (Former Employee) – Battle Creek, MI – August 5, 2015
I made $15.50 an hour at Post and it felt great. The hour were the down fall of the job, 12 to 16 hour days and I am a mother a five year old and in the middle of custody battle so I was unable to perform the way that I know I could while I was there.
Production Supervisor (Current Employee) – Battle Creek, MI – April 15, 2015
-Great opportunity to make a great product! -The company offers great benefits and compensation. -The hardest part of the job is the amount of time away from family and friends. -The most enjoyable part of this job is working with great employees! -I have learned that while the employees have a union and strict guidlines on how shceduling and overtime is done that they will do anything for a great leader including doing assigned tasks that they typically would not do. -
Maybe one weekend a month off and not sticking to the vacation agreement that was offered
Warehouse (Current Employee) – Britt, Iowa – January 27, 2015
I worked in the warehouse on third shift. I was the first and only woman that had ever been hired to do this type of job. It made me feel so happy for the women there when they'd come up to me and say "It's so awesome we have a woman in the warehouse finally!" The first shift warehouse person treated me horrible. He called me names like FB and SB. I went to Human Resources about it everytime. Nothing was done. I talked to the plant manager. Nothing was done. I finally learned to shut my mouth and endure it until I found a different job. This is my last week with them. I was from day one treated differently because I was a woman in the warehouse. Doing what they considered a man's job and a lot of them didn't like that I did it just as good as they did. The coworkers on my shift for the most part were great. I will miss seeing them. Had it not been for all the harassment I enjoy working in a warehouse. Loading and unloading trailers. The ESL machine can be challenging to keep up with when a pallet is coming out every five minutes and you're expected to be doing five other jobs at the same time, but it makes an eight hour shift fly by. Management is HORRIBLE. Starting with the Plant Manager. When I started in 2014 I thought he was a great guy. Always asked people how they were doing. The longer I was there the less I saw him doing that. The Human Resource girl is one of those pretty nice girls... TO YOUR FACE, and only to your face. I've never talked to one employee that is happy with her and how she deals with things. Because she doesn't,. She is pure evil and will do whatevermore... she can to get rid of you if you stand up for yourself too much. A supervisor that had worked at this plant for almost twenty years was fired two weeks ago. He was the only supervisor that had a good head on his shoulders. When he got fired I knew it was time to get out of there. I'd had enough.less
decent pay for area. can schedule own breaks but don't always get one.
terrible management which makes the whole plant unhappy
