Manufacturing Technician (Former Employee) – Scotts Valley, CA – July 19, 2017
This was a 6 day a week Graveyard shift job. It kept me busy but i also had no life for the month and a half i worked here. I would start work at 10pm and get out by 6 am. I never really saw my friends and had to make due with my employees. Some of those employees were ex-cons so it was never a truly trustworthy environment. I remember an employee got his new computer stolen from the lockers and they never really tried to follow up on finding it.
Typical day was cut up into 2 breaks and a lunch with an alarm to inform everyone. I mainly cleaned up the rooms after they were used for vitamin production. Later i started helping with the mixing and milling processes. It was a lot of manual labor involved and also the working environment was very loud. The most enjoyable part of this job was seeing macro scale synthesis first hand and learning about the QC/QA part of this industry. That is something i can use for the rest of my career life. Other than that though, this was through a temp agency and i was not paid properly. I'm glad that temp agency went under and got sued, they were violating so many rights just to exploit people and their pay. One of the reasons i quit.
Not a professional environment, even with the long time employees there

Don't expect to be treated like a human being. Expect to be belittled daily in morning meetings and reporting anything you are offended by to be quickly dismissed. The place has high turnover based on management and their inability to speak with employees with any resemblance of respect.
Administrative Assistant-Quality Control (Former Employee) – Scotts Valley, CA – June 27, 2017

Recent changes in upper management are significantly improving Threshold
Manager (Current Employee) – Scotts Valley, CA – June 8, 2017
Departments at Threshold vary widely, so prospective candidates should evaluate the department they are applying to, and not rely solely on the reviews posted here, many of which are only relevant for manufacturing and warehouse positions, which have been justifiably described as difficult and undercompensated. Recent changes in upper management are significant and are already leading to improvements in work conditions in most departments. Now is a good time to join Threshold and to take advantage of the improved work conditions and to help push for continued progress.
Sales Associate (Current Employee) – Scotts Valley, CA – April 4, 2017
it's a great job if you want to work with a bunch of dysfunctional people who can't seem to figure out the floor form the ceiling. It seems that this business has a potential to be very successful but the CEO and upper management don't know what they are doing.
Packaging (Former Employee) – Scotts Valley, CA – March 4, 2017
Supervisors have No management skills what so ever. People are over worked and mistreated and the HR can careless if you have any concerns!! theres plenty of harassment, intimidation, favoritism, retaliation, verbal and mental abuse from managment and nothing is ever done about it. The pay is a joke and very little chance to grow within this company. Very unsafe place to work. In this company all they care for is making money for themselves exploiting the employees.
Front Desk Receptionist (Former Employee) – Scotts Valley, CA – February 16, 2017
The management at Threshold was very disorganized. There isn't much upward mobility or advancement. The pay and benefits weren't all that great. If you want experience in the field you want to be in with your carrier it is a good place to work. The people that work there are very nice and it has a pretty laid back environment. It isn't a stressful place to work.
Great people, easy and not stresful, and can fit anyones schedule with other jobs.
short breaks, unorganized, low pay, no room for advancement.
Warehouse Associate (Former Employee) – Winchester, VA – September 15, 2016
Management is of poor quality, no matter how many times they preach how much they care about their employees and understand that life happes, they don't. So much favortism that its unreal. Would be a much better place to work if there were better mangers in place. Environment is unsafe when it comes to the elements of weather. Insuffient cooling measures in the summer and warehouse is cold in winter months. Co-workers were wonderful, would pick them any day over having to deal with management.
Production Worker (Current Employee) – Winchester, VA – June 2, 2016
If your looking for a fair paying job this is not the place for you. Every one is the same pay scale which I have never heard of before. They do have an incentive program which would work much better if everyone would put forth the same amount of effort. Employees either are fired or quit on a weekly basis. They are operating on a skeleton crew. No opportunity for advancement what so ever as everyone is paid the same. There until a better opportunity comes along.
Low pay, can not retain employees, unattractive benefits package
Warehouse associate (Current Employee) – Winchester, VA – June 1, 2016
This place has a revolving front door which sucks because everyone on the floor is paid a flat rate of 10.50 an hour with no sight of a raise and a monthly bonus which is unattainable due to the constant flux of new employees.
Also the expectations of management are ridiculous as they need 10 days notice for a schedule change from the employee but will tell you the day before that you have to work 10 hours instead of 8.
Go elsewhere if you're a hard worker and avoid this company. If you like to walk around and talk all day then this is your job.
Low pay, short notice of schedule change, no opportunity for advancement
manufacturing operator (Current Employee) – Scotts Valley, CA – February 27, 2015
hires the bottom of the barrel for the most part, it leaves future employment with them to be questioned, management does little to assist at times, fairness is NOT for everyone but rather those who suck up to the management, it will take advantage of their hard workers & yet not recognize their worth,
steady stable job almost guaranteed full time employment
looks for the cheapest labor force possible, demands overtime worked, english is not a necessity for employment, as low of pay as possible
For those who want to be treated like a robot, not a human being
Special Orders, Fulfillment Handler. (Current Employee) – Santa Cruz, California – February 15, 2014
I been working at the Santa Cruz warehouse, in the Special Orders Shipping. I would like to start with the manager. One of the employees had a hunger headache, so she went to the vending machine to retrieve a snack. The manager popped out and got quite literally in her face, pointing his finger in it, and yelling "NO EATING UNLESS YOU ARE ON BREAK!" She tried to explain but he only continued to shout "NUMBERS! PRODUCTION!!" Another instance that bothered me intensely was at the team meeting. A fellow Co-worker started to respectively speak about how we are treated here, and it was followed by a round of applause from the rest of us. The Supervisor (whom I will be covering next) started to short circuit, and didn't know what to do, so the Manager stood up and shut us all up real quick, and declared an end to the meeting. That right there proves we have no voice, and our opinions are not valued!! And now the supervisor. Where to start? What to say? He is always itching, scratching, and can't complete a full sentence. Tweaker, would be the word I'm looking for. He has the concentration of a goldfish, and I'm convinced is fearful of every human being he crosses paths with. Its like he's always short circuiting and his head is about to explode. He can't handle noises, so he enforced a new rule. No laughter, talking, or loud noises. Everyone is now operating on 100% utter misery. Sergio is the other supervisor, and I have no complaints about how he does his job. He listens, and doesn't start rattling off about how we need to make numbers so they can take their bonuses and gomore... on vacation. He is the only one I believe cares for the employees.
And yes, they do not want you talking, laughing, or doing anything that resembles you are remotely human. That is a real rule.
The pay is slightly above minimum wage, and as for raises, well... Lets just say there are people who have been there for ten years or more and still aren't making $10.00 an hour. The morale there is terrible, but you have your fellow, and very understanding, co-workers to help you through the misery. I'm honestly surprised there has not been a strike there. The union is still fairly new there, but as far as i know, as useful as a a friend who spews nothing but bad advice.less
Co-workers are fun and try to keep you from jumping off the product shelves.
Management, no actual raises, room for advancement but there are waiting lists for days.
