General labor / metal detector operator. (Former Employee) – Crest Hill, IL – December 17, 2015
I got hired by a great production manager who was thrilled to hire me. FIRST I want to say I was moved to the metal detector on line one, trained and certified for a month and a half, and never got the pay the position gave! For a full month and a half I asked the line leads, production manager and human resources to post the job And they responded in a attitude. My major problems came from some of the temps. I have gotten threatened by two co workers and they lashed out being completely irrational! The production manager,line lead and supervisors know they did it and it was a complete slap in the face that they blamed me! If co-workers cannot handle adult conversations with others then they don't need to be working! Not only that the line leads come in high! They need to do a random drug test IMMEDIATELY! This was the WORST job I have ever had. My stuff got stolen and management trys to keep people because we were short. I should have stayed at Wal-Mart overnights because the management gave the co-workers more respect not only that the coworkers are more mature. After this second incident with another barbaric brute threatening me I quit that NEXT DAY! If you are immature,like to gossip and a brute PLEASE feel free to work here! I won't tolerate being threatened or allowing anybody to threaten me!
Productive and enjoyable atmosphere , Local management was at time not open to suggestion resulting in unacceptable results. Prior location was more of a family setting working together for a common goal.
Rich Products provides a safe and fun envirnment to work.
Production Line Inspector/Quality Technician (Current Employee) – Fountain Inn, SC – July 2, 2015
A typical day for me at Rich Products is to ensure that the (CCP) metal detectors are working properly. Also, maintain quality checks on the products to ensure the specifications are correct per customer request and to ensure that all associates are working in a food safe manner. I have learned many things during my employment at Rich Products. They cover many areas, logistics of the ingredients as well as the logistics of the product itself. I also acquired leadership skills. The management team treats every associate as a family member and helps out when needed.The experiences with my co-workers are very vast. When some associates needed additional training in certain areas, other co-workers are there to help. I found that the hardest part about my job is to allow bad product go to our customers per supervisors request because of product inventory, instead of rejecting the bad product. its important to me that our customers receive what they ordered. The most enjoyable part about my job is to learn new things and new innovated ways of production.
Accounting Specialist - Cost accountant (Former Employee) – Waycross, GA – June 11, 2015
My typical day at work consisted of calculating labor costs and material costs versus the standard costs to produce the product. I learned new aspects of accounting by working with a company that is international in scope. I was considered part of the management team at our local plant because the controller was a shared service and worked from another larger plant in close proximity to the local plant. I was the sole accounting employee at the plant and served as an intermediary between the plant manager and controller. I really enjoyed my co-workers and maintained a good relationship with both management and production employees. The most difficult part of the job was the serving as an intermediary between the controller and plant manager. They would occasionally disagree on issues so I had to help resolve these issues. The most enjoyable part of the job was the family atmosphere and serving as the associate engagement team leader and community service projects leader and, interacting with various organizations in the community.
Often free lunches, company picnics, good and affordable healthcare benefits
Limited opportunities for advancement at local plant, encouraging disgruntled employees to become more engaged
