Not a good place
Ixapak (Former Employee) –  Nampa, IDMay 31, 2018
Worst Job I ever had. It was very stressful and demanding, they forced you to work too much overtime. management and leadership was terrible there. they treat you like your nothing. A lot of drama and just a bad work environment. If you decide to work there try to get on a shift that Amber doesn't work on she is a supervisor on swing shift and she will make your life a living nightmare, Everyone hates her and she is the cause of most of the problems that the company has she is bad for business its a shame they haven't figured that out yet. The only good thing I'd say was good about the job was the friendly production people I worked with, most of them were great!

I see this company having a positive impact on the local community providing above average wages and benefits. The leadership in place has the right vision and is now holding personal accountability to all employees.

Above average wage
Cons
Manufacturing schedules can change quickly

Managers were/are so arrogant.
Salary (Former Employee) –  Traverse City, MIApril 25, 2018
As a manager or supervisor if you bring up new ideas you can pretty much kiss your career good bye.
If you can walk around with your head down you might be okay.
High turn over rate. Because of leadership.
Pros
Fair to above income
Cons
Arrogant leadership

Janitorial Worker (Former Employee) –  Grawn, MIJanuary 3, 2018
Worst place i've ever worked the management/ supervisors are a joke there is no real sanitation department only janitors they require production people to clean the food processing areas without adequate sanitation procedures training def would not recommend eating this product (go go squeeze) to anyone due to a high risk of mold contamination the pipes the product runs thru are never taken down and cleaned
Pros
Some cool employee's

Pretty much everything

Quality Operator (Former Employee) –  Traverse City, MINovember 5, 2017
The hours were consistent, that was the only good thing. The wage for Quality was second lowest in the plant, some supervisors were always hugging or putting their arms around the girls. Fast paced, OEE competitive between lines and shifts. You stand all shift, breaks and lunch are not encouraged. If you need a day off, you had to find your own replacement. High employee turnover.
Pros
At least 4 days per week
Cons
Unprofessionalism

You don't want to work there unless you are french.
Maintenance Technician (Former Employee) –  Nampa, IDMay 27, 2017
I normally enjoy working on equipment and figuring out why a particular piece of equipment isn't working properly. In Maternes case if you find a problem, like skipping the acid step in a CIP to save money and you bring the problem to their attention you hear in a french accent, that is not important. Yes it is important, that is why I brought it up. If you skip that step, then the machines don't get cleaned properly and you are running sauce through a dirty machine. There are two production managers and they are pretty good at their job, but their hands are tied by the french culture. All of the equipment was made in Europe so all of the documentation was in french or Italian, with the exception of one machine that was made in Spain and its documentation was in English. This made it much slower going through the documentation to find the right drawing or schematic. The most enjoyable part of the job was the employees that were trying to do a good job. They are a great group of men and women that want to do a good job, but their hands are tied.
Pros
Great employees
Cons
French arrogance.
