underpaid slave work in mexico
line worker (Former Employee), Tracy caJuly 9, 2015
Pros: new experience..
Cons: short breaks, unstable job, discrimination
Well where do I even begin...this place is horrible for anyone who doesn't speak Spanish all that well. Im half Mexican and English is my first language and I know a some Spanish enough to know when ppl were talking about me. I was bullied and sent to do the slave work that no one wanted to do I guess because I wasn't "Mexican enough". They work you so hard non stop with really short breaks and you end up standing on your feet all day in a 30 degree freezer pretty much frozen to death doing overtime constantly all for minimum wage...

Forklift Operator (Former Employee), Orlando, FLMarch 21, 2015
A typical day at work driving the forklift and palletizing the produce.

I've learned how lettuce was wrapped and shipped off.

Management was ok there

The hardest part was not dropping the produce.

Co workers focused on task

Great place until someting goes wrong.
Picker/Loader, Forklift Operator (Former Employee), Swedesboro, NJFebruary 15, 2015
Work was busy on a daily basis and as a picker i enjoyed my time working for the company and the staff was quite diverse, but an enjoyable team. My issue arose when i took the position in shipping and receiving which was under new management and before taking the position of a forklift operator i made it a point to tell the manager that i had minimal experience and never acquired my certification, with that being said he took me on as a receiving fork lift operator. Everything was great up until safety became an extreme issue and they fired me on the spot after an incident i was involved in that to my knowledge was not wrong again because i was never trained.

Production Intern (Former Employee), Salinas, CADecember 17, 2014
Pros: rewards for good attendence . give-a-ways like jackets and other stuff
Cons: short breaks.
work flow is good there is enough work.
i learned hard work pays off you will be notice and promoted.
management is fair, they treat you with respect.
co-workers are sneaky and get away with long breaks its such a inconvinence.
the hardest part of the job is picking up after someone mess. and being the last one out the door.and waiting for those irresponsible child behaving cowards who come from lunch two hours later and tells you "take your lunch" what a heavy diaper they are.
the most enjoyable part of the job is just going home after a long day
