N/A (Former Employee) – Turlock, CA – July 10, 2018
Don't get me wrong this is a great place to work if it wasn't for a couple of people that think they own the place. And HR/Management... Is their anyone even alive in the office that doesn't sit all day eating bon bons gossiping to their favorite people. Again this is a great place to work. If only some people just mind their business and stop talking about others. Only the strong will survive.
Maintenance Manager (Former Employee) – Salida, CA – August 21, 2018
Too poor to list here. I can only speak for the Salida facility. The main Sac office has no Idea what goes on there. Plant safety and training is non-existent. Maintenance staff works in tin cargo containers welded together.
Benefits and salary were good
Have the worst corporate I have ever seen . Still in the 1950's
Manager (Former Employee) – Turlock, CA – June 4, 2018
Site director unprofessional as was HR manager. Management team always looking for the next stab in the back. No teamwork within the management team. Employees expected to work long hours, conditions unsafe at times.
Electrical Mechanical Technician (Current Employee) – Turlock, CA – April 20, 2018
Seemed promising when first hired. Room for company to grow but next phase never happens. Increased demand for product and no expansion causes workers to be there a lot of weekends. Now talk about 24/7 schedule will put half of EE om graveyard.
Nice Break room
Facility is ran by people 100 miles away in Sacramemto.
QA Lab Technician (Contract) (Former Employee) – Sacramento, CA – April 20, 2018
The staff was helpful in training and explaining the daily tasks done. There is alot of scrutiny and emphasis from the supervisors and managers to thoroughly follow the SOPs and GLP/GMP. This is a good practice however, considering that testing of food is involved so there can be no room for mistakes.
breaks and lunch on time, daily stretching and exercising
Operator Technician (Former Employee) – Turlock, CA – February 18, 2018
wasted my time here money was good but management needs to be cleaned out. If you don't brown nose wont get anywhere with them seen a lot of people leave including great managers and engineers due to bad management with the good ole boys club . You don't want to work here
Customer Account Manager (Current Employee) – Sacramento, CA – January 11, 2018
If you can get hired on full time this would be a great place to work. Unfortunately, during the slow times in the winter a lot of temporary works wind up losing their contracts, which can be demoralizing, but the nature of temp work.
Operator (Current Employee) – Sacramento, CA – January 9, 2018
start of shift you set up and verify paperwork, once everything is ready to go with the line start production and don't stop until the order or material is done, workplace preaches safety although some workers are ran ragged, everyone for the most part is busy constantly so it takes time to get backup from management, operators of maintenance. Hardest part of the job is sometimes dealing with the stress and lack of information you get with your daily production information. Best would have to be the coworkers.
coworkers, safety and company lunches, job security.
SORTER / GENERAL LABOR (Former Employee) – 1802 C Street, Sacramento, CA 95811 – December 26, 2017
My typical work day at Blue Diamond Growers an 8 hours shift. My duties as a sorter was sorting out bad/defected almonds and picked out the foreign material for the running belts. Cleaned up at the end of the shift. As a General Labor I performed multi-tasks including: Operated box-making machine, lined boxes, filled almonds into the dry-wall ready to sent out to customers. Picked up spilled almonds ,cleaned up/swept up the production areas and helped others co-workers to finish the products.
I have learned many different job tasks at BDG and really enjoyed doing what I did. The job was fun and co-workers are nice and helpful.
Management was great and helpful.
There was nothing that made me feel was the hardest part of the job working at BDG.
The most enjoyable part of the job was when I have to help other co-workers with the tasks at different areas learning the new things, get to know other co-workers.
Productive fun safety and security care good benefits

anything that may go wrong will go wrong, but in addition to that, blue diamond will attend to each and every problem and make adjustments as they go. All the jobs here are pretty simple, its just accommodating to everyone desire will be the hardest thing you will have to learn.
simple and easy
everyone is easily irritated, and needs special care.
