It was a good place to work for.
BLENDER (Former Employee) –  Kenosha, WISeptember 28, 2018
It was a good place to work for. Decent benefits, pay was a little low, but there was ALOT of overtime. Not much room for advancement there. You pretty much are stuck in the position you were hired in for.

Good benefits, fast paced job
Machine Operator (Current Employee) –  Tualatin, ORSeptember 24, 2018
Depending on the position you have is how much work you will have. The more you know the more they expect from you with out being compensated. What its not fair is that some people get paid the same as you and are not expected to do the same job as you.Benefits are good can't complain about that. The company has good values, but the management does not follow them and it seems that they have preferences towards people.
Pros
benefits
Cons
management, not appreciated for your work

Great Company Culture
Previous Maintenance and Reliability Planner (Former Employee) –  Saginaw, TXSeptember 4, 2018
Great culture, reasonable compensation and overall, a decent place to work. The best part of this job was the people. Most of my team members were willing to “pitch-in” when I needed assistance, a couple seemed to be there to make the job more difficult. The management’s dedication to serving the customer’s needs was second to none.

The most difficult part of this job was getting a few of my teammates to follow simple procedures and complete the proper paperwork when taking parts. This was a daily issue and a constant battle. Upper management’s resolve for this was to go around asking people if they used any parts and recounting inventory every day. This of course was not practical. A facility that size needs a dedicated parts manager and fewer people with access to the part rooms.

The best part of this job was the opportunity learn the different types of equipment used in that industry. That and to create or revise detailed PMs/PdM
Pros
Extreme Safety Focus
Cons
Don't get hurt

Its a company
QUALITY (Current Employee) –  USAAugust 17, 2018
Not the best company. No freedom for free thinking. Do what your told to do and shut up.
Nothing you do will be good enough. All feedback is negative.
Very rarely ever hear about the long hours and hard work you put in. Only the 1 in a 1000 issues that come up.
Only hear from CEO and Senior Leadership when something really bad happens or there is some new initiative rolling out that Regional management isn't going to follow anyway.

A company committed with their customers and employees.
Plant Manager (Former Employee) –  Guaynabo, PRJuly 27, 2018
As a manufacturing facility with three different business segments, delivering bulks and packed products, with more than ten pack lines, there was no time to get bore. Managing mores than 73 employees, exempts and hourly, I have to say that I enjoyed every day because there was always something different to work with. At the end you can see that there is a lot of committed employees and management.
