EXTRUDER OPERATOR (Current Employee) – Eugene, OR – October 1, 2017
Overall, Post Holdings is a convenient and reliable place to work. I was able to take advantage of the opportunity to advance in the company from working in packaging to extrusion operation with increased pay benefits. The most enjoyable part of the job is working with a great group of hardworking coworkers. A typical day is fast paced where you are making decisions in the moment. My coworkers and I depended on each other to complete the job to the best of our abilities. I learned a lot while I have been working as an extruder operator. I have learned how to control and monitor machines to produce specific ingredients. I am also in charge of quality testing. The hardest part of the job is working late nights. Overall, I enjoy the coworkers I spend my shifts working with and the opportunities they have given me to apply and receive two different promotions.
Company Parties, Friendly coworkers, promotions available and achieved
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
