Stressful and Poor Communication
LEAD WASHROOM ATTENDANT/SANITATION CREW (Current Employee) –  La Crosse, WINovember 1, 2019
The company is stressful and sometimes feels like it's poorly running. All shifts doing different things and confusion and mistakes are often made. All shifts adhere to different rules causing problems with communication.

No true leadership team. Unwilling to invest time to develop employees.
Whey Plant (Current Employee) –  Weyauwega, WISeptember 23, 2019
Unwilling to invest time to develop employees. There is no true leadership team here, just management. Many senior people and good employees leave because the career advancement opportunities are few and far between. They put people in to management that should not be in management and it makes for an unorganized and stressful work environment.

They would rather hire outside employees than promote from within. Current Plant Manager is very disrespectful to hourly employees,; which makes for a poor company culture.

Great place
Production Supervisor (Former Employee) –  Jerome, IDSeptember 11, 2019
I’m not sure how it is at this present day because I work there was still known as Jerome cheese but the 13 years I worked there I enjoyed most of my time there was a great atmosphere kind of feel like a family company good benefits paid well they were always willing to help out if you had a problem and then let you know that they care did you not only as an employee but as a person

Not the best pay, but it’s decent.
Downline Operator (Current Employee) –  Grand Rapids, MIAugust 31, 2019
We used to have 4 breaks, now we’re only supposed to get 3 and we work 12 hour shifts. People are currently trying to get a union involved! They say they are family friendly but people have lost friends and family and still got points for taking days off to grieve or go spend time with family in the hospital. We have NO sick days. Just to use FMLA you have to miss 3 consecutive days. If you call in because you can’t make it into work they use 12 of your 80 hours (for new hires up to 3 or 4 year employees) PTO and you still receive 2 points. Agropur does NOT care about their employees At All!! I have been at this company for a couple years now and we’ve been through 3 production managers, the turnover rate is ridiculously high. They don’t want people discussing pay because of how differently people get paid in here! Plenty of opportunity for OT. However some departments have people working 6+ days straight(we work 12 hour shifts). It gets super hot in here in the summer and freezing cold in the winter. Insurance is high and not the best.

15 employees in 13 months
Blender Operator (Former Employee) –  Maplewood, MNJuly 23, 2019
This place is like jail. You get to work, change into your jump suit, work 12 hours in non-air conditioned rooms dumping 300+ 50 lb bags, then change into your clothes and go home. You’ll be training new hires within 3 months of being hired, but you won’t make it that long so don’t worry. You won’t be compensated for training. The 3 “managers” won’t say anything to you, and are seriously the biggest weasels I ever got a pchance to work with. It’s ran like a 3 ring circus. Just wait till you talk to the employees around there, they will say this exact same thing. Save your time and avoid this place like the plague!you’ll learn from people you can barely understand.

Ever evolving work environment.
Food Technologist II (Current Employee) –  La Crosse, WIJuly 21, 2019
Lots of work and diverse work. The culture has evolved from being privately owned to being owned by a large cooperative. Hardest part is working with so many different personalities.
Pros
a somewhat flexible schedule

Rotating shift work provides poor work life balance.
Crew Member (Former Employee) –  Lake Norden, SDJuly 1, 2019
Rotating shift work provides poor work life balance. Expected to make long commutes to work in dangerous weather conditions, I.E. blizzards. Supervisors would visibly show their disapproval if you brought conditions to their attention that would not meet OSHA approval.
Pros
Pay
Cons
Who you know provides for your job security and will get you ahead faster than your performance, attendance or work ethic.

Filler Machine Operator (Former Employee) –  Grand Rapids, MIMarch 21, 2019
If you are not favored by management you will be on the struggle . Expectations of your performance are high but management couldn’t do the job. Blame you for stuff that is out of your control . Tell you lies constantly. Stressful job and no teamwork or recognition

Top Notch Employer
Packaging Operator (Current Employee) –  Jerome, IDMarch 13, 2019
Each day was busy, so the time flew by. Great collaboration with co-workers. Ok always to say what you think and get feedback and instruction from management. GREAT pay and benefits and time off. Work hard and have fun at the same time. Three 12s one week, four 12s the next. Excellent schedule to have time with family or take trips. Overtime happened and WOW what a paycheck! Base pay is outstanding in this area. Plant manager and HR are super great to work with. Lots of training including safety each month and opportunity to move up.

Management sucks . HR sucks . They don’t know how to treat their employees . No advance in moving up in the company . They discriminate there! The only thing the pay is OK . Would not recommend this place to anyone to work at . Apply if you want to be treated badly.

the job was fast paced and had to work alot of mandatory overtime. sanitation rules are very strict and hygiene was a must.

too much mandatory overtime
