I spent some days in an office coordinating everybody on – more... the dock and other days on the dock building pallets or manifesting loads to be shipped out. I quit this position when I was promoted at my other job to a full time yearly position with a significant raise. – less

productive and busy work environment
Cook (Former Employee), Chicago, ILJune 19, 2014
Pros: health care benefits, food discounts, company lunches
Was employed there for many years, the work days were typical for a food manufacturer, I learned many things, management was cool sometimes, my co-workers eventually worked together. The hardest part is when things went wrong, the most enjoyable part was when it was a job well-done.

Production is most important
Refrigeration Mechanic (Former Employee), New Holland, PAJune 17, 2014
Pros: decent pay, stock options, decent retirement plan
Cons: health benefit program is awful
Corporate managing in small town environment, safety is paramount. Fast paced work. Hardest part of the job was keeping up with level testing and having a regular life since production determines the hours you work.
