Good company if your ready for the cold,fast paced and long hours.
Raw Processing Sanitation Line Technician (Former Employee) – Newberry, SC – October 19, 2018
I loved my position there but I will have to say the company lost a lot of good people due to management having a don't care attitude. Many of the team leaders as well needed better work ethics and personal skills working with employees.
Kraft has 4 shifts and 1st 2nd 3rd and Mini shift. you cut turkeys and they have different types of jobs containing that release waddle-is cutting around the neck of the turkey or a releaser is cutting the left side of the turkey neck. it a great place to work at.
Associate (Former Employee) – Newberry, SC – October 18, 2018
Great management team, gave you all the tools you needed to do the job you were assigned. Management and associated worked hand and hand as a team and that was great because most companies don't do that.

Intern Event Planner (Former Employee) – Fullerton, CA – October 16, 2018
I actually worked at Kraft as an intern requirement for my high school but it was an amazing experience in which I met some great people. They gave an amazing set of freedoms in which you can really grow as an employee and make the changes that you feel are necessary and almost always have the support of your mentors.
Job is good despite what others say. Don't expect it to be easy but once you are at top wage, the money and benefits are excellent for the area. Hourly workers are in charge of most departments as salary is few. Union is good and fair also.
My only complaint is that we always run out of ingredients from corporate and then shut down, so I don't always get my hours.
Wages, benefits, culture, management, union
Ingredients that always run short costing me my hours
I was employed by KRAFT Heinz as a slicer operator on the mini shift and GOT transferred from mini shift TO first shift where the hours are more harsh for MY situation and I ended up losing MY job FOR attendance. I signed up for only 3 days and ended up getting terminated bc I miss too many days and lost too many points now I feel as though I'm bout to lose everything......
Hard work and fast paced. Employees are nice and respectful but there is a lack of management. Not much room for advancement. Schedule can change from day to day making it hard to make plans outside of work.
Schedule changes often making it hard to make plans outside of work
Production Technician (Former Employee) – Tulare, CA – October 10, 2018
Hardest part of the job was not knowing if someone there was trying to get you fired to try to push you out the door, also working with unmotivated people that didnt complete there work load. The most enjoyable part of my job was running and maintaining my own process.
productive and consantly changing work invironment
Research Scientist (Former Employee) – Madison, WI – October 9, 2018
A typical day would start by going over the test planned for the day. I would learn how to operate new equipment and different process steps. I had to manage my time to complete test and write assessment of test. Constant learning environment. The hardest part was working on Kraft's timeline. The most enjoyable part was the constant learning
Always lerning something new
the change in the corporate culture from Kraft to Heinzs
Materials Supervisor (Former Employee) – Cedar Rapids, IA – October 8, 2018
Huge push to keep production going which forced people to say rude things to other departments which didn't have things ready for their department in time. The turnaround was bad, often causing the department to pick up the slack of another person that has left the company. Every few years the company re-organized the salaried workforce. The good news was that if you stuck around you could learn several positions as they became vacant.
