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

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.

Fun working at this job
Line Operator (Former Employee) –  Baltimore, MarylandJune 2, 2017
The work environment is conducive and job safety is a serious issue taken seriously by all workers.All workers work in view of achieving a set goal, meeting customers demand at all times and quality of the product from the plant is very good. Workers are well renumerated and working in such a unionized environment ensured job security and peace of mind.
Pros
Free sodas during break times
Cons
No cell phone allowed on the floor

Management is a joke
Maintenance Technician (Former Employee) –  Gainesville, GAApril 7, 2017
Maint. Manager has no backbone and is VERY spaced out..does not stick up for his crew. 2nd shift production supervisor was very unprofessional and made numerous lewd/harassing remarks to mainly females employees under him. When brought to plant managers attention he swept it under the rug. Coworkers were great. Management was an embarrassment.
Pros
Free drinks, great co-workers
Cons
Favoritism, discrimination, Management, insurance, morale, hours, work/home balance, job stability

CSR - Customer Service Representative (Former Employee) –  Gainesville, GAJanuary 1, 2017
Company has ability to make you think you are doing a great job then complain about everything you do. The training is not what is required to do the job. Management has certain people they cater to. Management does not promote team player atmosphere.
Pros
nothing
Cons
low pay stress
