Purchasing Coordinator (Former Employee) – South Bend, IN – October 17, 2018
Every day was different. Learned something new about food every day. The management was excellent. They gave you all the tools necessary to make you successful. Always very supportive. Everyone was great to work with. Laid back culture, but everyone worked together when a problem arose. The hardest part of the job was keeping an eye on expiration dates. I loved everything about this job. The commute was just further than I wanted, especially in the winter.
Everyday is full of joyfull people and positive energy. Alot of people stay for many years because of the great work culture.Great leadership and great job to work for the only hard part is SAP to get familiar with the system takes help, but the help is always a step away.I learned alot far computer skills,forklift,cpr,leadership skills and alot of way to process orders.

McCormick has changed over the past few years. The focus of collaboration and teamwork has been replaced with reporting, power points, buzz words and talk. Senior Management is almost entirely from the outside and the culture isn't what it once was.
Management worried about Wall St more than employees
Director (Former Employee) – Hunt Valley, MD – December 28, 2016
Last five years has seen an influx of short-horizon data-driven leaders that are willing to sacrifice the family and employee centered culture the company was built on to appease Wall Street. It is a shame as employee engagement levels are trending flat to down and work life balance is very poor. Senior leadership (Mgmt Comm) is increasingly out of touch with employees especially those 2 and 3 levels below them. Gone are the days when the CEO knew the names of many employees and spent significant time forging relationships with them to understand what was "really going on".
I enjoyed working at McCormicks. Great work culture. You are given oputunities to advance. Wonderful benefits. Great working conditions. Given chance to further your education. Co workers wete great to get along with.
This company was about team building. There is a morning session that includes stretching and preparing for the day, which I found to be very helpful. Being organized, and able to stay focused while being productive was very important. Goals were set daily and in most cases accomplished by end of day.
Tech II Packager/Blender (Former Employee) – Hunt Valley, MD – October 6, 2015
Each day find out what has to be produced and jump right in. I learned about different spices and how they taste. management was awesome and always willing to help. It team base so all co-worker did their part to ensure a job was well done. The hardest part was lifting 150 pound drums but that wasn't daily. The most enjoyable part was getting large orders done on time.
Great place to work. Great company with great benifits and people.
Materials Planner (Current Employee) – South Bend, IN – November 10, 2014
McCormicks is agreat place to work. My typical work day is reveiwing needs of materials needed in the plant for production. I've learned new skills in inventory control and planning. Management is helpful and accessible when needed. My co workers are good people to work with and friendly. The hardest part of my job is working through unknow complications with transportation or demand needs that are not foreseen. The most enjoyable part of my job is the ability to work with vendors and other people in the industry.
Management (Former Employee) – Maryland – September 19, 2014
Inept leadership. Favortism is rampant. Most jobs require degree unless you are in the good ole boy clique. Used to be a great company with a great culture. Nobody cares anymore. True McCormick employees have left or are leaving by year end. Sad end to a once great company.
Management plays favorites, it's who you know not what you know, favoritism on top level
