Great benefits, stressful work environment
Total experience was okay. Work you hard, gives you great benefits and a good wage after making the max. Hard to enjoy life outside of work at times. Extremely taxing work if you do the palletizer job. Hard to enjoy the work environment a lot of people like to let the problems trickle down and the management doesn't make a strong effort to fix problems.

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.

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.

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.

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.

good breakrooms
management does not communicate ideas with employees. does not matter if you work really hard you will get no further in the company as far as advancement or pay, than the guy who sits around and does nothing. excellent place to work if you want to go for ninety days pass the probationary period and then do the bare minimum :(
Pros
good pay and benefits
Cons
good supervisors bad management

Terrible Company
Terrible company to work for. The quality of the food is not a priority anymore, only the quantity is important to the management staff. They force many of their employees to work long hours whether they choose to or not.

Good coworkers
Great place to work. They offer competitive health, dental, and vision care. I am responsible for 1,000's of different materials including packaging and ingredients. The people are easy to get along with.

Enjoyable for the most part, no work place is perfect.
There is absolutley no room for advancement no matter how much effort you put forth. The relationship between workers and management is iffey. Most workers don't trust them and feel that they are nothing but trained monkeys or small cogs easily replaced with no real care for their well being. Their is a real disconnect between the two levels, that could one day boil over. The people I worked with seemed kind and easy to get along with, there are exceptions of course. The pay and benefits were quite nice.
Pros
good pay and benefits, decent work environment and coworkers.
Cons
physical manual labor(not nessicarily a bad thing), manangement worker disconnect, no advancement.
