My direct manager and a few others are amazing. Supportive, clear and open communicators, collaborative.... However, there are still others leading the management team and at the corporate level who's actions don't align with what they say. Employees have to take ownership of and find their own work life balance. Doing the right thing and advocating the right thing can at time seem like an uphill battle. There is definitely investment into the employees though. There is generally speaking opportunities for outside training seminars, etc. to help ensure employee growth. There is also a recent charge to upgrade everything to new technology. Overall this is great, but the approach is to change everything at once, which is not great. The place has some pros, but definitely some areas where they need to improve.
Pros
Training opportunities, utilizing latest technology/platforms, decent pay and benefits
Cons
Message and actions don't always align.

This company does not have their ducks in a row All the way from management to the very last person on the list at the Burleson location. I was a former line driver in warehouse and you might as well kiss a lunch good bye! No one is able to cover you because they are busy and manage my won’t let em cover you if you have a sick spouse or kids, they don’t care Even when my wife was diagnosed with a neurological problem, they didn’t care about that. All they wanted to do was give points even though it was the old managers fault my sick days are gone. HR is the biggest joke in the whole company. Never will refer anyone there
Pros
All the overtime you want
Cons
Tell you at the end of your shift you are staying longer or else lose a job

The pay is good, but when take into account working 50-60 hrs a week on salary, pay isn't good. The manager doesn't know how to do the job which leaves all of us to figure it out on our own. I do not recommend working for this company unless you dont have a personal life and you want to work a lot.

Job only cares about money and not employees. Forced overtime while working 7 days. I do not recommend this job. No time to spend with family. Union job but management changes rules whenever they feel like it to their liking.

Golden State Foods has a great story and puts its employees first, especially with their foundation. With multiple plant locations, GSF has the competitive advantage to win. Learning the GSF way takes some time but once you know your way it is smooth sailing.

There is no work life Balance at GSF. This a very high paced manufacturing environment. The higher up management does ot care about the regular employees. Work place culture is the bottom line.

I enjoyed the "flat" business mode. Meaning, we had access to senior VP's and everyone in between. It was very much a model that allow feedback from managers on a variety of different levels.

During this coronavirus pandemic, this company has shown its true colors. If you you get sick, you will be forced to use all your pto time and after that has run out (6 days) you will get wrote up for all time missed, essentially, if you get coronavirus you are going to lose your job.
