Management puts pressure on supervisors to perform certain task, but they shackle your hands by limiting your control. They expect you to work so hard (up to 7 days) with few compensations outside of your normal salary. If you do your job on time they ask why couldn't you do more since you finished on time.
Processor (Current Employee) – Columbus, OH – November 27, 2017
I cant begin to explain how difficult it is to stay employed at this place. There's a very low lack of leadership and advancement its all politics and the production manager is a complete waste of time
Quality Analyst I (Current Employee) – Horse Cave, KY – November 8, 2017
You start your day by changing into your uniform. Clock in after changing, get your shift handoff with information on what to expect for your shift. Usually the department manager nor the supervisors will address anyone unless there has been a problem and then they assign more work for everyone to try and prevent the problem from happening again. Production floor is always chaotic because of a lack of communication and leadership. Somehow work still gets completed. It is an overall lack of organization that is so frustrating.
Lack of organization and communication, poor management

Mixer (Current Employee) – Columbus, OH – March 7, 2017
They pay you just enough to keep you from leaving. I would recommend this place to most people. If you have good work ethics and insist on doing your job, be prepared to be overworked and singled out. They would rather ask you to do something than try to find the person whose job it really is.
Great pay, Great insurance, Solid 40 hour workweeks
Poor management, Low morale, Bad union, Third shift is nessisary but a huge joke, If you are in the union, which they say is mandatory for all hourly, there is no chance in moving to a differant location and little chance of advancment.
Too many old school employees, no one leaves and new ideas are squashed. Computer systems are ancient and it takes 2-4 of them to band aid any reporting that is done. Sales has it together, the business administration side has very poor leadership, know how to do the job but are horrible at managing, no guidance no help is given. The first time doing a task, you better be right or be ready to be hit hard, instructions to do things can be 5-8 pages long, ask a question, you get hammered. Not recomended.
Only problem had here with this company was the advancement. i acquired the job from a temp agency, i was there for quite some time. Employees who have been with the company for 2-3 years were also still on contracts with temps, which was questionable comparing to what you were told in the interview with the supervisor.
- A typical work day includes approval of all raw ingredients and packaged products, execution of sanitation testing program for pre-operation, complete all extra assigned duties. Goal is for all departments to support and work together efficiently to produce safe, quality products.
- Most successful skill acquired not taught in school is how to work with all types of personalities and how to best accommodate everyone while stile maintaining high quality and safety
- Best part of the job is taking in pride in our companies high quality, safe products and feeling a part of the team to produce such items
various positions (Former Employee) – Wilson, NY – March 24, 2015
T. Marzetti Company offered me numerous advancements within the company, which I greatly appreciate. My superiors were the best. It was a very sad when we closed, as we were like a family. I was fortunate enough to be offered a transfer to another facility, however, family ties kept me here. They have an awesome work life balance ethic. Your family mattered to this company.
I would reccommend anyone to work for T. Marzetti Company.
Shipping Clerk (Former Employee) – Milpitas Ca – September 19, 2014
T. Marzetti is a fast paced condiment manufacturing company which takes total pride in their product. They expect perfection and give you the guidance and tools for you to succeed. My Manager Frank Gallardo was a great leader and a great man.
There is alot of growing and learning at T. Marzetti
Unless you are a union member you cannot become full time long term.
Outside of basic QA or manufacturing, there's a lot of politics between management in each department, which obscures priorities. Also, the pay is not great. This is my personal experience; your mileage may vary.

- Fast paced and structured to produce a quality product. - How to manufacture salad dressing. - Overall management is good. - I enjoyed working with co-workers. - The hardest part of the job are the frozen ingredients. - The most enjoyable part is working with co-workers.
