rotating schedule, 12 hr days
bulk chemical attendant/sanitation (Current Employee) –  Greeley, COJune 1, 2018
I am always busy. They expect a lot from one person. 12 hr days are long and no one is really engaged after about 10 hrs we are just going through the motions and depending on muscle memory to accomplish most tasks.
Pros
corp profit sharing
Cons
rotating schedule

I do not recommend
Team 1,2,3 (Former Employee) –  Greeley, COMay 4, 2018
Perfect if you have no life. Rotating shifts every 4 weeks from days to nights at 12+ hours a shift. And less than 12 hours between shifts. They've had the ability to give set shifts for years but refuse to. Sick days are a joke, you may get paid for taking them but good luck getting them approved through there outside agency. Miss 3 days a expect a write up. They pile more and more work upon you everyday. Be prepared to be thrown under a bus at all times. They on care about the money not the people. You will always be hurt on the cheese side, be it by, pulled muscles, burns( heat or chemical) or exhaustion. Regardless of your position if you are not management be prepared to always be scrubbing by hand. Place is full of lip service. They tell you they listen to your work issues and do nothing. The expect the world from you and give nothing back.You never have the same day off every week. When you do have a day off you are too tired to do anything anyways. HR is where your dreams go to die. Corporate policy is atrouis. Non-union and bash Unions through propaganda. Fake smiles abound.

Bulk Line Operator (Current Employee) –  Sayre, PAApril 25, 2018
It is like being in high school again people tattling and wining because they don't want to do something. definitely not a place to work if you have a family. 90% of the time you don't get the days you request off. Forget about holidays with your family even just 1. Some of the supervisors are very arrogant.

Good job, good pay
Quality Execution Technician (Former Employee) –  Lemoore, CAApril 13, 2018
Easy job, production environment, state of California needs to get a grip on FLMA abuse. Combination of hard workers and lazy workers, Leprino is an at will employer, so they should be able to get rid of the slackers, but all the slackers abuse the out of FMLA. More people should appreciate a job as good as Leprino Foods.

Management is uninvolved
Quality Assurance Analyst (Current Employee) –  Remus, MIApril 3, 2018
The only thing management cares about is how the numbers look at the end of the day. If problems are brought into question you are either swept under the rug, or you are now a target to be the next person fired. Management is always targeting someone, even when doing their job correctly as a power move. They attempt to instill fear into employees and if you do not comply, you will be fired.

You're just a number
Foreman (Former Employee) –  Fort Morgan, COFebruary 20, 2018
Worked at this company for over 12 years. Was in a leadership role and had a great work history as far as performance and attendance. I was let go without a second thought on their part. If you make one little slip in this place, they don't care who you are, you're fired. No second chance, no opportunity to explain, just "Goodbye." The pay is great and the benefits are some of the best out there. As far as work-life balance, they assume you have no life outside of those walls. If you want to have a job where you are truly appreciated, go somewhere else. Leprino Foods only cares about Leprino Foods.
Pros
Great pay, Great Benefits
Cons
They own you, you are just a number in their system

Mediocre
Hourly Employee (Current Employee) –  Tracy, CAFebruary 15, 2018
Leprino is not the worst company I have worked for but it leaves much to be desired. They really don't care about you, your health, safety, or the wellbeing of your family. They get walked all over by the union and they reward incompetence. If you are good at your job and get along with others you will not get promoted generally speaking. I would consider it a person insult if they wanted to make me a supervisor. Which is sad because at some point I would like to move into management. Just not here!
Pros
You will never get fired unless you break the law.
Cons
You will never get fired unless you break the law.
