Warehouse/Customer Service Coordinator (Current Employee) –  Oakbrook Terrace, ILAugust 9, 2018
I loved working here! Unfortunately it was only a temporary position. I wanted to work here permanently but they have requirement that you have to have an Associates or BA degree. I don't have either one, so I was unable to apply for a permanent job here.

great place with the right job.
Poly Operator (Former Employee) –  Easton, MEJuly 24, 2018
it depends on the job inside the plant you get on how good the place is. the good thing is if you don't like the position you are in there is plenty of opportunity to try a different job.

good work for the money
Food Operation Line Worker (Former Employee) –  Appleton, WIJuly 18, 2018
For my particular job, it wasn't necessary to have any skill other than decent hand eye coordination and ability to stand for long hours. It's not the most enjoyable as you have usually one or two task that you do over the course of 8 hours but it was simple work and as long as you and your fellow line mates did their job you were fine.
Pros
good benefits such as health care, paid leave (for certain amount of days), dental care.
Cons
standing for long hours can get tiring and will be sore after the first few days of work.

Maintenance Mechanic
Maintenance Technician (Current Employee) –  Appleton, WIJuly 18, 2018
Poor management decisions, happy to fire at will. 12 days on 2 days off is hard, nights to start with no chance to get to days for years. people are great and helpful but just no family life as overtime is asked of you, turnover is high as over 40 mechanics in less than 10 years. revolving door. I would not recommend anyone to work there unless you like to get wet from cleaning every 8 hours. just a job with no advancement.
Pros
poppers at breakrooms, Cheese sticks
Cons
healthcare, wages, advancement

Inspector (Former Employee) –  Easton, MEJuly 11, 2018
They only care about money and if you want to make money you can do it at McCains. Just make sure that you are the supervisor's and manager's buddy and step on all your coworkers in the process.
Pros
Pay
Cons
supervisors, greed, breaks

Production Management Development Supervisor (Former Employee) –  Burley, IDJune 25, 2018
Mccain's offers advancement opportunities which is nice, and I would work there again if I was closer. I moved away from the area though and had to leave McCain's at that time, unfortunately.

Shipping and Receiving Coordinator (Former Employee) –  Appleton, WIJune 19, 2018
I worked for McCain foods for 18 years. The first 8 years were great, then they started bringing in changes that were good, but didn't hold people accountable for what they did. They made thimgs look good on paper. but that's about all.
Pros
good benefits, good pay
Cons
lots of overtime

Job is easy, supervisors are horrible
Production Worker (Current Employee) –  Rice Lake, WIJune 13, 2018
You make good money for the job that you do, but the people that work there make it not worth it. Especially the supervisors and leads. It’s a really stressful place.

Great people and great culture!
Manager - National Accounts (Former Employee) –  Lisle, ILMay 23, 2018
McCain Foods invested heavily in their team members. All of the necessary tools and resources were provided so that you could effectively go to market and represent the company and yourself in the best possible way! Compensation was always very fair and competitive, training was on going to ensure everyone had the best competitive edge. The management was a bit on the conservative side especially when it came into investing back into the company to grow capacity and new product capabilities. Overall a great company to be associated with!

mccain
Back Up Operator (Former Employee) –  Appleton, WIMay 17, 2018
Mccain is a very fast pace job. The environment is always cold. It's a messy job. At the end of the shift you will come home smelling like the products you've been working on.

Not a bad place
Backup Operator (Former Employee) –  Appleton, WIApril 30, 2018
Need to be a hard worker. Very little supervision. Can get stressful if you're prone to getting sick. You get points even if you get a doctors note so don't waste your money going to the doctors. That's one reason why a lot of people get fired. There are two ways to not get points, if you have a death within the the family OR if you're going to die without the help of a doctor. Other than that... Good luck trying to get your point back.
