Great company - Good benefits - Global presence
Clerk (Current Employee) – Hillsboro, KS – April 21, 2016
This is a great company to work for and I would highly recommend it to others. Everyone here is very professional in their duties, yet the atmosphere is somewhat laid back (jeans are typical dress for all departments). My co-workers are all hard workers, but also enjoyable work teammates.
Barkman Honey is very progressive, utilizing up to date technology across the board, where it is deemed beneficial. We are a located in a small town, but don't be fooled. We are a global presence in honey industry. There are a variety of opportunities available.
The hardest part of my job was learning new software, but I also had the support of management to take my time to learn it correctly, and therefore make fewer mistakes. Support came from all in my department as well as other departments.
Work times vary and you can find one that is right for you. They understand family is important and try to work with you, when possible, as schedule conflicts arise (such as a parent teacher conference).
The benefits are very good, and I believe more than many other area employers. PTO, health and dental insurance,and other benefits. PTO for community service of your choice is an awesome benefit!
Barkman Honey is a Christian based company. Certainly non-Christians are welcome, but the trait of service and servant leadership is important- customer service, community service, service to our vendors, etc. The Barkman family believes in it, and so do all who work here.
I LOVE that we are given paid time off (16 hours each year) to do community service work
Sometimes I don't take breaks, which is actually good, because that means we are busy - we are thriving!
