Lost their way...
Clerk (Current Employee) –  Caldwell, IDAugust 29, 2018
Do not work for them unless you enjoy hostility, lack of training by your manager, or a middle school bully. Managers consistently talk trash about employees online with each other and other staff. HR does nothing to stop it even when multiple people report it. You will work long hours with no appreciation. What they offer in pay and benefits doesnt make up for what you will go through.

Stay away!
Order Fulfillment Specialist (Former Employee) –  Seattle, WAAugust 25, 2018
Terrible place to work. I have nothing good to say about this place. I watched my coworker who moved up from PDX to stay in her job of 20 years, quit without even having a job! That is how miserable they made her! Managers in my department were straight up MEAN!!! She was so close to retirement! That outta speak volumes!
Pros
Cottage cheese, butter, egg nog

Everything else!

Pays good, management sucks
Production Worker (Current Employee) –  Boise, IDJuly 17, 2018
Managers do not care about the hourlys. You get all the hours you want and it pays well, but you are an afterthought for anyone above you. Breaks are not guaranteed although they claim they are required. The supervisors spend most of their time in the office and not actually walking the floor. There is a general “do not care” attitude throughout the plant and it really brings morale down, makes it a difficult place to work sometimes.
Pros
Good pay, paid time off, great benefits
Cons
Very poor upper management, does not promote from within often

This Company Is Dying
Senior System Automation Analyst (Former Employee) –  Seattle, WAJune 4, 2018
This company is not moving toward the future. They do not value innovation. Their plant equipment in places are 50+ years old with no plans to replace or improve. The turnover is very high. As soon as a person starts to implement an improvement, they are cycled out.

Avoid at all costs.
Pros
Pay is ok
Cons
poisonous culture

The job provides a lot of opportunities to learn different types of machinery and electrical components, but tasks could be delegated better. Overall, I am ready for a new opportunity.

most part keeping busy with job tasks, data entry
Accounting Clerk (Former Employee) –  Sunnyside, WAMarch 8, 2018
I enjoyed the early morning work shift, small office environment, for fairly large plant. Like many offices there were very busy times and not so busy at other times. I learned more about Excel and how to create pivot tables, one of the hardest parts of this office was lack communications when training, they did cross training for coverage purposes. Much of the time the office environment was stressful and I found this supervisor not keeping to her word she and had her door shut and locked.
Pros
good benefits program, holiday lunches provided, early morning shift hours
Cons
training opportunities though were available, they were inadequate and had lack of communication at times

Hard work and lots of hours.
Production Worker (Former Employee) –  Caldwell, IDFebruary 20, 2018
The machines are difficult to run at times so orders are hard to complete. Lots of hours, 12 hour days. Can be stressful on a family. Overall the company pays well and if you can withstand the demands it is a good job.

Bad situation as soon as you walk in the door
Retail operator (Former Employee) –  Caldwell, IDSeptember 8, 2017
Typical day at darigold is extremely frustrating operating your machine while you have hostile production managers telling you to keep the machines running knowing full well they are in disrepair and it is impossible to meet their demands.

There is bad communication from managers to supervisors when it comes to their new employees often times they are left to figure things out for themselves because management is not reliable.

Highly unorganized and often the employers are put in highly unfair situations.
Pros
good healthcare benefits, decent pay
Cons
at times no one gives breaks, work 10hrs before you get a lunch, no job security, bad management

Great Place for Work
Machine Operator (Former Employee) –  Boise, IDAugust 13, 2017
A typical day at work is the same as any other job, you come in, catch up on the past few ours, then take over for your shift. It was a moderately stressful job, with lot on the shoulders for one person. I learned a lot about machinery and the advance technology that processing and packaging is going to. Management is fair as long as there isn't too much to worry about, if they are really worried about something they will not put anyone on top of their lists, they will make you worry about your own training or progression. The workplace culture is amazing, you can get long with anyone as long as you do your job and do what is right. The hardest part is learning how to keep up with multiple machines that tend to breakdown often, and learn how to make them run again without waiting on maintenance. The most enjoyable part would be the people you get to work with, everyone there works as a team as long as the person they are working for will do as much for them as they would for the other.
Pros
Teamwork, Benefits, and good pay
Cons
Too much change, too much on one person's shoulders
