Fun Work Place But Operations is Lacking
Account Specialist (Current Employee) –  Miami, FLJune 19, 2018
The people and culture are incredible, However; the operations and management is at a small company level which doesn't work anymore since its a million dollar company now. The functionality that is currently in place is just not efficient and extremely frustrating especially when the compensation isn't enough to deal with it.
Pros
Gym, Cafeteria

Fun company
Replenishment Analyst (Former Employee) –  Miami, FLMarch 13, 2018
I wish I had never left this company. I only left because I was offered a significantly higher salary elsewhere. I'm actually trying to go back! They're data driven and try to leverage technology as much as possible. I highly recommend it and for what it's worth, you'll learn A LOT about plants...since that's their business.
Pros
In house cafeteria, gym, massage
Cons
Salary was a little low

Productive workplace with a soccer field
Laborer (Former Employee) –  Trenton, SCNovember 16, 2017
I went to work knowing what to expect .I learned to speak spanish not fluently though. The management was fair to all their employees which was a plus.That made the work environment comfortable. They were concerned about their workers .They even educated their workers by training them at different locales.They had health fairs every year to see if workers had medical problems. Over all in my opinion ,itt was a good place to work.
Pros
Free food 401k health fairs
Cons
Tyhe break area

People are great, but job not the best
Supervisor (Former Employee) –  Miami, FLNovember 15, 2017
I love the people I work with they're great. But the job itself is a hassle, there's always something that went wrong and then a solution is hard to find. You always feel like you are stepping on someones toes and their opinions are more valid than yours even though you are seeing blatant issues with the operation.

But again, some of the people you meet here are great and the health benefits are great.
