Machine Operator (Former Employee) –  Baltimore, MDFebruary 13, 2019
Money is pretty decent. However being told the day before you have to come in at 4 am is crazy it's every week. That means up at 3am to work a 12 hour shift. Always exhusted by the time you get home from work. So life balance is a big downfall. Then when you are do for your weekend off they end up taking a day away. It becomes insane after time.
Pros
pay
Cons
long hours

High-Paced environment
Machine Operator (Current Employee) –  Houston, TXFebruary 13, 2019
High-paced environment which can be stressful at times, depending on how the machines are operating. Supervisors carry a bad habit of lashing out their stress towards the employees whenever the line goes down, even if it's a machine problem; not an operator one. Overall, it's a decent company to work for which offers good hourly pay, sick time, benefits, vacation time, and the opportunity to grow if time is put in.
Pros
Decent hourly pay, good benefits, paid time off, a week of vacation each year.
Cons
Supervisors, stressful environment

Terrible Company
Billing/Collections (Former Employee) –  Gainesville, GAFebruary 8, 2019
Brought me in as a Billing/Collections Specialist. Turned out to be an entry level data entry position. Confronted HR about miscommunication, they turned it around on me like it was my fault. This company is misleading applicants. They then let me go 2 weeks later after they found my resume posted online, I was seeking other employment. Awful company, be careful!!
Pros
Free drinks only while working
Cons
Misleading thi get you in the door.....

Shasta
Current employee (Current Employee) –  Columbus OhioSeptember 7, 2018
Shasta is the worst experience I ever had in a work place. Management sucks. All the management level, think they can yell at you, and belittle you, and one of the supervisors can't spell. And they hire close family and friends, and put them in better situations on the job, over you, even though you have been there longer than them. A lot of employees which is the good ole boys club are doing getting high their breaks, and coming back high as a kite, and management knows about it.One supervisor and lead, be outside working on their cars or some one else cars, while production is going on.
The company benefits sucks and no matching 401k. You will pay 200 dollars a week for insurance for you and your family, and work you 60 to 70 hours a week to make you feel like you are making great money. This is a billion dollar company and the benefits are awful. The management do not care about SAFETY, all they care about is numbers. They play favorites. Stay away if you don't get high and you care about safety, and you want be treated fairly, and have decent benefits for you and your family. And most of all, if you want your supervisors to be competent, and not think they are better than you, and can't spell .And the headquarters HR, will never call you back.
Pros
Free product's?
Cons
Incompetent mgrs, and supervisors, benefits sucks, good ole boys club druggies

Customer Account Representative (Current Employee) –  Gainesville, GAApril 12, 2018
Working for Shasta is a good place to start your career, but not a good place if you want to advance. There’s also poor training, and the benefits are not the best. However, the office environment is very chill.
Pros
2 Breaks a day, paid sick time
Cons
Poor management

Customer Account Representative (Current Employee) –  Gainesville, GAApril 4, 2018
I love what I do but management does not help employees when needed and benefits aren't that great. 401k isn't matched and all medical bills have to be paid by the employee at the time of visit and insurance does not pay until the deductible is met.
Pros
Lunches
Cons
Healthcare and 401k

Extremely fast paced
Maintenance Mechanic (Former Employee) –  Tukwila, WASeptember 19, 2017
Daily changeovers on all packaging equipment leaves little time for actually PM. Equipment is older so not a lot of spare parts to choose from to keep plant running. At times you must fix the part you have just to get line back up and running temporarily.
