Assistant Manager (Former Employee) – Saint Charles, MO – May 18, 2018
This company is extremely misleading and shady. They rely on student workers that are international and unable to work elsewhere and then they treat them like garbage. There is a lot of racism here as well as poor management. They didn't pay what they promised, the benefits are not worth it and they higher ups do nothing but encourage gossip. Its ridiculous. Don't bother going to HR because HR is incompetent. Communication is bad and the higher ups do not hold the students accountable for their bad behavior. They could not show up for weeks and then just walk in like nothing happened.
School breaks mean shorter days.
Bad leadership, racism, incompetent HR, terrible benefits

Pedestal Foods is a very good company which always is willing to give job opportunities to Lindenwood University students for example. I really like to work with Pedestal Foods and I highly recommend this company to everyone
-Hired 2 months before paperwork was filed -Was laid off 3 months AFTER my paperwork was file for no reason -Our GM was fired after employee complaints and the temp manager was racist referred to chocolate milk as "black milk" and tried to fire all African American employers. Unorganized and even had issues with the school the company was working with.

This company was hard to move up in and the there were no benefits. The medical insurance was also very expensive and not worth it. Also once the company merged with another things started going down hill.
Shift/ Student Supervisor (Current Employee) – Marshall, MO – January 1, 2014
This is my main job during the school year. Learned a lot from interaction with my fellow workers and it helps that we are a diverse group you can't help but learn new things Hardest part of the job is training new people every semester because it's like beginning the job all over again Enjoyable part of the job is having new people and getting to know the new workers each semester. It's wonderful how we can build rapport with new workers in such a short time What I've learned though is dealing with people from different backgrounds require different approaches
