Administrative (Former Employee) – Pacific, MO – July 30, 2018
Company health benefits are great and affordable, vacation is plentiful. The associates work hard and the facility is growing. Production has to get done which can make for long days, however, management is quick to acknowledge hard work and doesn’t shy away from rewarding the crew with free lunches or other small “thank you’s.”
Health benefits, 401k with match, vacation, Job security, fun people
Great place for a dedicated person to make a career
Associate (Current Employee) – Pacific, Missouri – April 28, 2018
SmithFoods of Pacific is a great place to work. If you are dedicated and focused on your work you will not go unnoticed. Management has high expectations, but that is what continuous improvement & growth entails. Some of the associates are stuck in the old ways of the old plant and have trouble moving forward with the company. The general moral of the company is great other than a few people who expect something for doing nothing. It doesn't matter what position you are in or what area you are in, you can call on any team leader or group leader and get support. It's very easy to be promoted if you do your job as expected and follow the rules. Management is very understanding and flexible, there is mandatory overtime due to the company's growth, which is a great thing! The pay is competitive, the benefits are good and you get vacation time quickly. Its a small plant, everyone knows each other very well including management, its like a big family. There are a lot of people that have worked 5, 7 & 10 + years there. Overall it's an employer that can offer you a career rather than just a paycheck.

Appreciate the employee benefit structure put into place that gives everyone a minimum 2 weeks plus 5 floating holidays. Also match up to 4% on 401k which is nice. Everyone is kept busy all day, but we work together to get the job done. Company seems to be growing because we keep getting busier. For the most part, everyone gets along and I enjoy coming to work.

Very toxic, short staffed they expect people to work 2 and 3 jpbs on regular basis. Sometimes floor workers do not get breaks or lunches Meanwhile management makes sure they get their lunches everyday. NO COMMUNICATION what so ever. Work schedules change on a whim
My day at Smithfoods starts on a Monday at about 3:00am and ends when my customers are all delivered for this day.Day usually ends between 1:00pm and 2:00pm. I work Monday, Tuesday, Thursday and Friday. At this time I have the option to work around 4 hours on Wednesday if I choose to. I have Saturday and Sunday off.
good work environment, good pay, healthcare and benefits are good. the management was very kind and helpful. i learned quite a few things about the dairy industry from working here. a good place to work
Great people to work with, but very long hours and no opportunity for advancement in my area

There are a lot of dedicated and hardworking people there who often go unrecognized. The benefits are fairly good, but there has been no bonus paid in the last few years due to lower than expected volume of sales. Sometimes it is a very tough environment.
Team Lead (Current Employee) – Richmond, IN – December 8, 2016
Co-workers listened when I told them how to work faster and listened when I would train on safety measures. I really enjoy working as Team Lead and having the respect of Co-workers. Also being part of the union was good for me.

SmithFoods is a enjoyable place to work, the employees are easy to work with and are very helpful. They think about their employees best interest and are always willing to help in helping someone succeed in their career.
