fast paced, good pay
Not a bad place to work for, i is a fast paced work enviroment.

Not So Good
Working with in the Distribution side of things , it's very company first doesn't matter what happens with your home life as long as you are at work. Management often contradicts themselves and blames the employee. Look elsewhere!

Kemp’s milk plant isn’t a horrible place to work but doesn’t let you call in no more than 6 days a year or your fired. Working every weekend and have no life and family balance.
Management doesn’t care if you work hard or not, as long as someone is there since someone else will pick up the slack. All of Management and many coworkers all use

Profanity as if they are out with their buddies at a strip club. It’s distasteful and rude, and when you ask them to stop it continues.

Coworkers are good people but so many of them have no work ethics cause everyone is just a number. Good pay and benefits only thing that keeps people there.

Union job...forced in to work all the time
Good place to work if you like 80 hours a week. .other than that. No outside life ,unless you have 25 plus years seniority,then and only then you would not be forced to work on your days off.. most times you only have an 8 hour turn around..
Pros
Money
Cons
No time off.

Great work place
Absolute outstanding workplace except for the overexertion and hours if you have no seniority you are basically at the whim of the job there's a large amount of workload so do not distress if you need money you will make it

Great place to work if you love to work.
Great group of people. Which made up for the mundane task of making and filling up milk. Don't be afraid to ask questions. Management love hard workers and recognize you more for your work.

Fast passed, Management not supportive, had to watch your back,
Typical work fast paced short staffed for amount of work that needed to be done. Had to work most holidays and weekends on short notice. Management was non existent did not have a manager for all but last 15 days I worked there. The union that represented us was poor, the pension was constantly in the red and you could not count on it being there when you did retire.
Pros
all the dairy products you could eat
Cons
Look at the review section

To much pressure
New managers, new rules, new expectations. Bad vibes,

Change can be good. It can also be bad. In the case of KEMPS milk, change is not going so well.


Management keeps employees in the dark about everything. If it were not for the grape vine, employees could easily be blindsided with new demands.


If you have to work there, work in union jobs. You'll have some protection against unrealistic demands.
Pros
Health insurance. Great team of employees. Union gets 9% 401K match.
Cons
Management. Management. Management and Management.

Fast paced work environment
Enjoyed the fast paced atmosphere, really kept me on my toes. Work production was a priority and had to be kept running. Daily work orders, and lubricant areas addressed on a routine basis.

had uniforms, the work day went by fast.
meeting on how the day went. switched operators. Did all kinds of ice cream. I learned how ice cream was made. The hardest part of the job was keeping up with everything when thing go down. Then most enjoyable part of the job was tasting ice cream I never tried before.
Pros
Great pay, Management was good too.
Cons
not much to complain about.
