Sargento Policía de Puerto Rico (Former Employee) – Puerto Rico, – October 26, 2013
No single day are the same. I resolve people problems. Helps other with family situation. Stay on dangerous situation like assaults and accident with life threatening injuries. I learn to deal with different situation and resolves problems on the moment. The hardesta part of the job is when you don't have nothing to do to save a life. The mos enjoyable part of my job is deal with people and help them with their dairy situation.
Machine Operator/Material Handler/packer (Former Employee) – Plymouth, WI – May 26, 2017
Sargento has a great and clean workplace. The pay is really great and you have awesome breaks. The management was friendly and so are the coworkers. They also help out the community during holidays. They put up a tree in the break room and people can chose names of children in the community to buy presents for.

Senior Shopper Marketing Manager (Current Employee) – Plymouth, WI – March 22, 2017
Strong work life balance. Strategic, disciplined approach to marketing. High stability - with opportunities to enrich skills but advancement opportunities are limited as employees tend to join/stay. Opportunity to pioneer/innovate beyond current role. Family ownership is a positive - treat employees like family.
Work-live balance, strategic approach, stability, strong focus on H&W and community responsibility
Softer benefits (working remote, onsite ammenities) are developing
Material Handler/Forklift Operator (Current Employee) – Appleton, WI – February 5, 2017
I enjoy going to work and being around the management and coworkers. It does seem a lot like a family atmosphere. They do try to promote from within the company even to the point of helping with school. Great place to work.
Material Handler/Forklift Operator (Current Employee) – Kiel, WI – January 26, 2017
It's a great company to work for but I'd like to be home at night with my little boy and husband. It's very hard to get on first shift, and when you finally do your laid off plenty because of your low seniority.
Unless you are willing to bend over backwards for your job
Production Worker (Former Employee) – Kiel, WI – December 2, 2016
The pay was good the benefits not so much some people were great to work with others were a headache if you can keep to yourself and perform your work beyond satisfactory standards this is the place for you

Senior Consultant (Former Employee) – Plymouth, WI – October 31, 2016
Sargento is a food processing operation in Plymouth, Wisconsin. The physical infrastructure is outstanding with state of the art seating arrangements with modern furniture and equipment. The work load is relaxed. Management is nice and friendly with a very small technical staff.
Parts Inventory Control Specialist (Former Employee) – Plymouth, WI – August 14, 2016
The culture is amazing. An awareness of people, pride, and progress is evident in every employee.
It used to be one could only get a job with Sargento Foods, if they knew someone or if one were related to an employee. This mentality is hard to shake, even though it's necessary to look beyond family and friends in order for this great company to continue to compete with the big fish.
Embracing employees as family is evident everywhere. The wonderful people this company has managed to attract is the number one thing that really makes this company shine above all others in the county.
Sargento unfortunately does fall prey to tiny fiefdoms made up of long-term employees who are resistant to new processes and employees, which they may not see are necessary in order for the company to scale; this is the downside of having a major player's HQ located in a very rural area where the pool is small and widening the talent-recruiting net is a necessity.
love of family, open, trusting and friendly CEO
Long-term employees allowed to hold back newer employees from advancement or success.
Semi-Truck Cleaner (Former Employee) – Plymouth, WI – August 4, 2016
The hardest thing about the job is that we had a coworker who could whatever he wants because his uncle was the manager. But after the manager retired from his job, the coworker quit his job. While cleaning the semi trucks and trailers, the equipment would top working due to the water moist in a closed garage like area
making every thing clean
dealing with picky drivers, the weather, the equipment breaking down
Frozen Core Department Universal (Former Employee) – Kiel, WI – April 30, 2015
The employees were good to work with. Most people got along. Unfortunately you had to spend more time kissing up to the boss than working. But i learned a lot of great things there and met a lot of good people
production (Former Employee) – Kiel, WI – January 15, 2015
The people are nasty!!! I was excited to get hired there...but, that changed quickly. Training was a joke!!! Glad to get out of there fast!!! It helps in a job where people can work together...this is NOT the case at the Kiel facility. They work against each other...and that makes a very negative atmosphere. Do. Not. Apply. ..........RUN. I sure hope the company reads these reviews and gets better control of their workers...they do not own the company!!! Sargento does.
Sensory Techician (Former Employee) – Plymouth, WI – May 7, 2014
It was easy to go to work. A typical day was hard working and fun all in one. My supervisor was easy to work with but, excepted production. The company as a hole was wonderful. I will truly miss working there.
