Machine Opreator (Former Employee) –  Livonia, MINovember 5, 2017
Don't work here this company doesn't care about their employees at all and the pay is trash just like the management and they don't care about your safety like they claim because the machinery is old and out dated behind repair

Absolutely terrible
Production Worker (Former Employee) –  Livonia, MIMarch 27, 2017
This job isn't worth it at all. If you have a life, DONT WORK HERE. There is no such thing as a life after you start there. You don't get paid enough for all you do. The temps are usually rude and speak a different language so they don't even listen to managers or supervisors. I'm a very quiet person at this job and people tend to mess with you because of that. 2 half hour breaks and usually they aren't after 4 hours. Used to go 6 hours later and it's stressful to our bodies and feet. They don't care about you. Don't work here unless you absolutely need the money.
Pros
Probably nothing
Cons
30 minute Short breaks, some rude coworkers, pay, long hour, exhausting

All the bad reviews are true
Grader (Former Employee) –  Livonia, MIJanuary 17, 2017
Every last one of the bad reviews are true. Very long hours. Not paid enough. No real chance of advancement. Very cold environment. Though the work is easy, the company gives you sub parr product for you to grade. The benefits are kinda nice after 90 days, but honestly you wont wanna stay that long.
Pros
Benefits health, dental, vision.
Cons
Bad pay, cold, long hours, terrible management

This is not the only temp agency in town.
Production Worker (Former Employee) –  Livonia, MIJuly 12, 2016
I've worked for mastronardi & I can admit the bad reviews are true. However, If you put in extra effort to find another temp agency you will like it. Ask friends ask families ask Facebook where are more temps at trust me there are agencies paying much better with better atmosphere.
Pros
Nothing
Cons

Don't say I didn't warn you!
Ex-Employee (Former Employee) –  Livonia, MIJune 16, 2016
Please find another company. Mastronardi produce is the worst company I have ever worked for. The company pushes a great idea with their 5 non negotiable traits. You honestly feel in the front office as you start your training they actually believe their ideas. You will come to realize very quickly that somewhere there is a disconnect. You will be treated horribly by management once you are hired. Told you are less than nothing. You are not important in anyway. You are and will be replaced if you don't beat them to it and quit first.
Your fellow employees most will not speak English and the other half will be lazy, high, or drunk most of the time "You will see all the bags and bottles in the parking lot when you get to work in the mornings" which only makes your day harder. Days has to fix just about everything nights produces because of that, so plan on being kept as late as they can keep you everyday you work.
It is very cold depending on the time of year summer isn't so bad but winter is horrible if not prepared, so understand that going in. Pay is not great and they will do whatever the can not to give you a raise. And their 3-4 schedule is not easy on the employee nor their families. You will be exhausted physically and mentally. The best thing going for the company is the health insurance. It's actually not bad compared to most companies. If you do decide to take this job I wish you the best.
Pros
Health Insurance
Cons
Management, schedule, pay

No room for growth!!!
Packer/Shipper (Current Employee) –  Lakeland, FLApril 1, 2016
Poor management. There is no one in management with real life understanding. They look out for the greed of the company only and will not invest in they're employees at all. They treat you as if you're stupid and refuse to communicate with the team about production. So unorganized. I hated it . 8.50 a hour is not enough for the mess you will put up with.
Pros
none
Cons
everything

poorly managed company, unless your a friend of family
production supervisor (Former Employee) –  livonia miOctober 25, 2015
The claim is this is a good company to work at and business is booming, however in production your job and the company depend on your next production run. This is beyond expected results oriented management and is a feature of poor management as a whole. Production managers are lazy or so bad that they have no other way to motivate you other than threats.

If you want to grow a career here you need to be family or be good at making friends. Otherwise, shut up, do your job or leave.

Horrible communication, no attempts to sell the company vision, inspire or develop a workforce or even reward you for the success the company claims.

You get 3 or 4 days off a week so you do a good work/life balance.
Pros
Days off, decent benefit package
Cons
Mediocre managers, no incentive for employees to be succesful, cronyism and nepotism

Overall sucks
Production (Former Employee) –  Lakeland,flSeptember 29, 2015
As an ex employer there it was one of the worst companies I've ever worked for just because it's so unorganized nobody ever seems to know what's going on and the product is always nasty. The managing staff seems to always never be found it's just not worth working here for it's pay and you can't never spend time with your family cause of the new schedules they came up with just cause of their greed of more volume of work. I was let go cause of me doing my job and bringing in work to the production base in other words whatever the issue was with management I'm sure it was personal but they did me a good favor. This company is GARBAGE!!
Pros
No respect for hard working people
Cons
To many broken promises

Great place for low pay and to be pushed around
Grader (Former Employee) –  Livonia MichiganJuly 7, 2015
Pay sucks for any position that isn't salaried. You'll be pushed around with almost no opportunity for advancement. Also if you have a sickness that has a 90% chance to kill you and you call off in the 90 days they'll fire you. They say "well it's your job or your life"
Pros
Work is easy sometimes
Cons
Weird breaks, long hours, never have time to yourself or family, everything
