Fairly new workplace. Overall hourly employees are good people
Plant Lead (Former Employee) –  Visalia, CA 93291December 6, 2016
On a typical day we would be given certain deadlines that were hard to meet but not impossible. My hourly coworkers were amazing individuals. Management-Perfection Pet Foods is still a very new company and has a lot of learning and changes to be made. The hardest part of my job was being the middle man, having to fight for my employees when they were wrongfully accused. The most enjoyable part of my job was getting to work with so many people on all levels within the company.
Pros
new company, a lot of good oportunities.
Cons
long hours, fast paced

confidential. (Current Employee) –  pet food GoshenMarch 9, 2016
Frequent turnover of managers, new company, struggling because management doesn't seem to know what they are doing.. Long shifts 12 hours, sometimes six days a week, so no time for family. Don't seem to really care about employees.

Office Assistant (Former Employee) –  Phoenix, AZSeptember 20, 2014
A typical work day at Western Milling would consist of answering the phones and transferring customers to different lines to be helped by one of my fellow coworkers, I would do the copying and the filing of the invoices. I would get the mail and distribute it to my coworkers and I would greet the customers as they walked in. I enjoyed everything about this job.

Accounts Payable/Sales Support (Current Employee) –  Goshen, CAApril 1, 2014
There is always a large volume of work to do and requires the ability to perform under specific guidelines and time constraints. I learned a lot about the agricultural industry and was never aware of how much work is involved in feeding herds of cattle. I found it quite fascinating from the dispatching and delivery process, the purchasing of commodities, and how the paperwork flows and job roles intersecting. I would have to say that the most difficult part of the job is that there is too much tolerance for bad behaviors that have been allowed to continue, thus affecting overall morale. With that said, there are so many wonderful people which I have had the pleasure of working with. The company is very family-oriented and also gives back to the community, which is great.
Pros
Excellent benefits
Cons
Not enough training for persons inexperienced in management
