Great company awesome benefits and good people

Indeed Featured review

The most useful review selected by Indeed
The company is great a lot of benefits, and they do the most they can for there employees with that being said definitely not the best paying company and the company itself needs to look into lower management more then they do that’s where a lot of the issues are. My supervisor and ranch manager where awesome couldn’t ask for a better team and never made work impossible for us for the most part everything was a team effort and we tackled task as a team only other down side Is hours can definitely be long

Pros

Great benefits, awesome people to work with

Cons

Lower management will screw you to make themselves look better, (never works but annoying) and long hours

Great Place to Work

It has been the best 6 months working for Fowler Packing. Management is encouraging and willing to help you reach full potential. Stress free environment and a place where opinions can be voiced and actually feel like ownership is listening. People have stayed for over 20 years and it definitely shows why.

Pros

Free Meals, Onsite Clinic

Admin/ Field

new ownership has created many changes, job security is no longer a peaceful thought. employees are rarely recognize for their hard work. Sudden negative changes are pushing good employees to leave the company. overall good place to start a short term career and get quality work experience.

Poor Management and Rude HR workers

My boss gave me a raise and promoted me to a higher position within a week. HR didn't approve the new job title and raise. Owners made me a business card with new job title, but no raise yet. I was a Manager there for 5 months, getting low wages and working 55 hours a week without Overtime Pay. Totally messed up, their excuse was that I'm working AG hours. Ag hours only apply to farm workers.

Pros

Free Lunches and Medical Facility onsite

Cons

Everyone who works in the main office

very poor management

Very hostel environment. Management promises you one thing and goes back on their word a few days later. Its like riding a rollar coaster everyday, You don't know what mood you might get out of the manager.

stacking boxes and staged for orders to be shipped

Fowler Packing is a good organization to work for. They have a clinic for all of their employees and they also provide meals at no cost to their employees. The hardest part of the job was language barriers. Most of the employees spoke fluent Spanish while my Spanish was limited.

Pros

Good Benefits

Cons

language barrier

Good work place, always understanble about school being a priority.

This job was seasonal and had different hours depending on the fruit and orders for that day. I learned about tree fruit, as well as citrus fruit. I learned the sizes and variations of the fruits. I learned computer software that helped me do my job.

Pros

flexible schedule

Cons

I dont feel they appreciate their employees for the work they do.
