This company gave me an opportunity to learn more skills, and people can generally take on as many projects as they want. It is a fast-pasted culture, which I actually liked. Also, I found the industry interesting
However, management is generally people who have moved up the ranks or been there the longest, not people who have the best leadership qualities and skills. The company tends to take the stance of "this has always worked for the past" and is not very open to internal changes, even though the company has grown significantly in the last 5-10 years. Additionally, the company is essentially run by the sales people. The general stance is to do what sales wants whether it is really feasible/realistic or not. I also have personally experienced very unprofessional and disrespectful communications on numerous occasions.

There are too many new employees and there is a work culture there that provides extra stress and attention to individuals who are scrutinized because of personalities versus principles and work ethic.

Fair and consistent practices are not followed or encouraged. Growth and advancement opportunities are non-existent at the plant level for most people. Could be a great workplace if a management that took charge and cared was in place.

Few people worked there but wanted people to do more than one job for little pay. They didn't have to proper tools for the job you needed to do. You ended up having to work more and harder than the pay rate that was given.

Honestly working here was great. This was one of my favorite places to work. It was so fast and it kept my brain going. I loved the people I worked with, they made the night go by faster! Milk Specialties had a lot to offer, like life insurance and health and dental . I loved working there I always felt appreciated.

This employer is relentless and uncompromising in their policy of treating everyone equally. Simply put, they hold everyone to mandatory attendance and are unwilling to work around any kind of limitation an employee may have. If you can not be there on time every single day regardless of any circumstance or if you have any kind of physical limitations whatsoever, do not bother.
Operator (Former Employee) – Paris, IL – May 23, 2016
Management is hard to work for because they like to belittle the employees and let other employees do it as well. They also like to blame others for their errors. The older workers can have errors and cause issues and nothing is said, but if you do something wrong they want to write you up. No training what so ever!!!
PTO time off
No training, long hours for each week, two sets of rules for the employees
