Quality Assurance Technician (Former Employee) – Seattle, WA – May 1, 2018
Kerry gives its employees opportunities to learn an grow within the company. They embody the SQF mindset to "say what you do and do what you say." It's not encouraged to cut corners. Employees are rewarded for doing the right thing, profits don't come before safety. Sometimes long hours are required to finish the schedule, but management is respectful of allowing employees to take vacations and holidays.
Materials Manager (Former Employee) – Beloit, WI – April 28, 2018
Kerry employees are wonderful. The managers will micromanage you on your daily tasks. People leave all the time due to the high pressure. If you start a family, expect them to have you continue to work long hours. The managers don’t care about you and just expect results.
Flexible, opportunities to move up
Long hours, work life balance, poor management style
Food & Beverage Blender (Former Employee) – Savannah, GA – March 8, 2018
Your immediate supervisor might be good but middle and upper management look at employees much like the machines in the plant as in they could care less about you unless you do what they want, when they want, and hum a tune up their lower colon. They will also just change your schedule without notice and work you until you drop, and your response is irrelevant because you are as replaceable as the machine parts.
Laborer (Former Employee) – Jackson, WI – March 7, 2018
This place is a last ditch effort to get gainful employment, the hours were busy.The pay was not as competitive as it could be. The benefits were passable. Some of the Management were people I easily could get along with.. others not as much. However the way they write many of their policies leaves much to be desired. Such has become the way many do business in the world these days.. there is little comradery between the management & the everyday hourly employee. If you work for this place you are a number first (& in some cases only).
Labor intense not much time at home very stressful managers
HOPPER OPERATOR (Former Employee) – Evansville, IN – March 2, 2018
long hours of very stressful labor lifting product bags and operating machines as well as going through uncertainty of not knowing for sure if i'd have a job the next day. Managers were good and the ground working managers seemed to extrovert their stress towards the workers. Hardest part of the job was working under stressful conditions like clean 500 lbs of defect flour that blew out a tube up by yourself in under 30 minutes or being relieved of work. Finding out that a 12 hours shift is required 20-30 minutes before an eight hour shift is over. and the over all attitude which is more learn what to do without any guidance make mistakes and be dealt with accordingly and when asking question deal with the stress of the person who is pulled away from their job to assist and train. money is good but the cap off dollar amount seemed a bit unworthy of what workers have to go through to get there.

Shipping and Receiving (Current Employee) – Byesville, OH – February 13, 2018
It’s a decent place to get a job around here but they won’t let you advance in the company they pick favorites. The people are really good to work with that’s probably the best thing about that place they don’t really train you probably you have maybe an hour of training then you’re pretty much there by yourself
