Long days

Indeed Featured review

The most useful review selected by Indeed
Very clean place to work. Organized for the most part. It’s a solid place to work. It just 12 hour days on your feet. Not much to fix since the place runs well 24 hours a day most of the time. That could drive a busy body maintenance guy crazy to stand around until a changeover is needed on line.

Pros

Free peanut butter. Decent pay

Cons

Long days and odd hours.

Good pay/Benefits. Poor leadership and management

Worked for the company for several years. Work was easy, but sometimes strenuous. Other times it was fast paced and rushed. Management was inconsistent/ Maine supervisors cared about quality of work and your well being, while others actively undermine you if you don’t follow vague company policy. Work environment was very clean and well kept. Most people there will listen to your issues, but rarely are they addressed.

Pros

Good work/Life Balance and excellent benefits

Cons

Management is hard to deal with, and is inconsistent in practice.

Better know your job Quickly or they won't keep you.

Very good people. But management needs improvement. Better learn your job right, or they will get rid of you. Liked my job,but they had me doing 3 jobs,and needed 1 job. 3 jobs was to hard to comprehend.

Great place to work and pay was good

Great place to work . Upper management made themselves available to communicate with when you had problems on the floor. Co workers worked well together without close supervision.

Poor management causes major team problems.

Decent pay, but horrible hours in production. Shipping and receiving dept is ran horribly. Mandatory overtime is a must in production Mon -Thurs resulting in 12 hour workdays.

Good place to work! Very clean facility!

Algood was a decent place to work. I never had any problem with employees or my responsibilities at Algood. The only reason I ever left was because I lived a little too far away from the factory.

Pros

No micromanaging

Cons

Shifts were a little odd

Poor management

If you come here with good intentions you won't be here very long. This company will ask your opinion about things and once you give it to them they will take it wrong. My manager did not want to deal with issues, as a result, I was fired and labeled a trouble maker. No one is happy at Algood, management is such hypocrites because they get sick days, the lab workers get sick days and the warehouse workers and security have to use bonus days or vacation days when they call in because they are on the point system. Whatever happened to lead by example? I've seen people here fired for the smallest infractions and other workers do as they please and no one says anything. I'm pretty sure this place loves to fire people for whatever reason. I've seen at least two or three people get fired here in a week. Don't walk from this place, run!

Pros

Clocking out

Cons

Treated like dirt

Job not bad premix is the hardest job in the plant

Premix is most labor position in the plant. The shifts are 12hrs but you do get weekends off. Every four months you get a bonus if you run well. It has a point system amd if you reach 7 points you will be fired.

This was a great place to work

This was the only job I have ever had where I did not encounter a single unpleasant person or anyone who did not enjoy being there. The plant was fairly relaxed and though the schedule was kind of strange the hours were not bad. Management were extremely helpful and involved. The benefits were extrodinary for such a small company. As a maintenance machinist, it was a tad boring since not much broke in the plant. Lots of peanut butter! Not a good job for someone with nut allergies but overall the best company I have ever worked for

Pros

Good people, good benifits, generaly a great place to work

Cons

Not very exciting

office sanitation

The pay is good till you realize you work your butt off everyday and that you are the lowest paid person there because office sanitation does not get production pay and no one gets sick days there but the office and lab people

A productive exciting environment to work.

Everyday working for Algood was different. There were always different challenges that made it fun to approach work each day. One of the things that I learned good management leads to happy productive workers and an overall pleasant environment. We had a very diverse team that communicated well together. The most challenging part of the job was the antagonistic relationship between quality and production. This is resolved with a willingness to communicate for efficiency and quality. The relationships formed was the most enjoyable part of the job.

Pros

the training and resources for continued development.

Cons

challenging shifts and hours

Had to balance daily, the production and the quality of producing safe quality food. And ensuring my emploees were also safe!

Hourly monitoring of all employees procedures to ensure company compliance. Constantly reviewing daily documentation, payroll, shipping, cleanliness, etc. Upper Management did not want to give me answers when a problem arose. So I made the decisions based on my knowledge and expertise in producing safe quality food.

Pros

Benifits

Cons
