Management rely on supervisor statement either true or false
Laborer (Current Employee) –  Sacramento, CAMarch 10, 2019
Company management never rely on employee's words but following supervisor's words who often write up wrongfully, terminate/fire and do dafamate the employees, uncontrolled by management, the worst experience working there. No advancement opportunities for qualified experienced and educated employees.
This is not place for truthful, honest and hard working employees.

Horrible Management Inluding Leads and HR
Grader Operator (Former Employee) –  Sacramento, CAJanuary 14, 2019
If you have no life outside of work and want to work like a slave doing other peoples job including yours, While your coworkers are having a good time not doing anything but watch you work, then this is the place for you. The favoritism in this place is the worst i have ever seen in any place. Management just wants to show up collect a check and not deal with anything . Leads are useless most of them cant even use a computer. Hours in this place are horrible and if something breaks down which believe me happens often, your either sent somewhere else or sent home with no pay. The only thing that this place has that is good is the pay which in the end i found out to not be worth it after all the stress and head aches.
Pros
Pay
Cons
Bad Management

Good company
Associate Brand Manager (Current Employee) –  Sacramento, CADecember 16, 2018
Its a well known company, there are opportunities to take on responsibility and grow your experience.However, not much promotion from within, and career progression is tricky. People are nice but not always very welcoming. You need to be a bit aggressive to make your mark here.

A typical at Blue Diamond really good. Everyone always worked together no matter what job title or salary. I learned how to work with machinery. The hardest part of the job for me was having to work 3rd shift.

Worst managed company ever.
Maintenance Manager (Former Employee) –  Salida, CAAugust 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.
Pros
Benefits and salary were good
Cons
Have the worst corporate I have ever seen . Still in the 1950's

Where can I start...
N/A (Former Employee) –  Turlock, CAJuly 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.

Spend my days troubleshooting high level analytics. Some days was a piece of cake and some days were to complex. You never know what will come and never know how prepared one needs to be.

Good pay but work a lot of weekends
Electrical Mechanical Technician (Current Employee) –  Turlock, CAApril 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.
Pros
Nice Break room
Cons
Facility is ran by people 100 miles away in Sacramemto.

Quick paced with friendly staff
QA Lab Technician (Contract) (Former Employee) –  Sacramento, CAApril 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.
Pros
breaks and lunch on time, daily stretching and exercising
