N/A (Former Employee) –  Ayer, MAFebruary 8, 2019
Would only recommend if you are desperate for a job. Almost all long term employees will openly tell you they'd get out if they were younger and not near retirement. Safety is a joke here don't be fooled by the Pepsi emblem, just check the ohsa history for proof under Patriot Beverages, CPf and Northeast hot fill and injection molding enterprises.They don't train people properly and I saw two people lose the tips of their fingers in one year a as a result. They will refuse to train or certify employees even if they are performing the duties. It seems like they want to keep people on the lowest salary they possibly can and hire expensive contractors.

Progressive ideas are not accepted unless they are brought up by management. Upper management is more concerned with their expansion companies, presumably because they are the owners of the new companies and will be selling a raw material to the bottling plants. If you're looking to advance your career avoid this place because I've only seen four people promoted from within. I knew two of these people personally and they were denied positions they were interested in, but forced to take on jobs they did not want. One person found out about their promotion by reading the company bulletin board and was not even asked about it. Very unprofessional when it comes to handling employees and many have left because of the lack of transparency.

MULTIPLE quality managers and supervisors came and went in the past few years and not a single one of them had anything positive to say about the company's culture and work environment. The were
  more... multiple demotions and firings while I was there. The place has revolving doors for positions from the top to the bottom.

Most positions are 50-60 hours MINIMUM and the operators make close to the same hourly as their supervisors do. If you can work with minimal time off without training and need inexpensive insurance plan, then consider here. If you're looking to work in a place for life, this is absolutely not the place.

AWFUL PLACE TO WORK-Company does support their employees at all
Former QC Line Technician/Batcher (Former Employee) –  Ayer, MAJuly 6, 2017
This place is completely awful to work for, if you want a paycheck at a thankless job then by all means go for it! Daily they work you so hard with no appreciation-expectation is for you to work the job of 3 people and for you not to complain about it...then once you have worked so much you feel defeated they let you go for reason only the supervisor or manager can give you....nothing enjoyable about this place at ALL!
Pros
free drinks and occasional free lunch
Cons
never get all your breaks andnoone to back you up if you are not in a supervisor or manager position, HR only backs up the upper management and supervisors, noone to help EVER

Low wages - don't bother unless desperate
production (Current Employee) –  ayer,maOctober 1, 2015
Hours are long and wages are low. The pay scale is stuck in the 1990's. There is no job advancement and when you receive a raise in pay your overtime will be cut down. Typical raise is $.20 to $.50 annually. Doesn't come close to staying with the rate of inflation. You will have to live from pay check to pay check. Training is "go work with so and so" and so and so doesn't really want to teach you.
Pros
medical benefits
Cons
low wages

Would only apply as a last resort !!!
Operator (Current Employee) –  Ayer, MAJune 30, 2015
A typical day at work consist of Management Not supervisors or line leads looking down on you as if your the smallest most uneducated human being working there. Operators are always looked at by management as DISPOSABLE and treated as a second class citizen. On 2nd shift you may start at 415pm but you are not done until they tell you your done which at least once a week its when 1st shift comes in at 6am. Also, when you are done running your machine you are then REQUIRED (on top of operating the machine, being there for 10+ hours),to change that machine over which may take you up to 2 hours and this happens almost daily. FORGET about having a family or a life again because you are Required to work 6-7 days a week minimum and is MANDATORY!. You are doing all this work for 2 dollars above minimum wage. Management does not care how many machines you know, you are not paid based on experience and there is absolutely no room for advancement with our current general manager. Our current GM runs this establishment as communist as North Korea. The only positive about working here is working with awesome co workers and respectful supervisors. They, and by they I mean the supervisors actually appreciate what you do and know what your worth. PLEASE, BEFORE YOU APPLY TO THIS MENIAL JOB ASK ANYONE FROM THE SHIFT YOU INTEND ON APPLYING TO THE TRUTH OF WHAT THE DAY TO DAY OPERATIONS ARE.
Pros
Free coffee water and soda NOT to be taken off property
Cons
MANAGEMENT excluding supervisors and line leads, HOURS especially on 2nd shift .
