Maintenance Supervisor (Current Employee) –  Brundidge, ALDecember 11, 2017
This was a good place to work before the corporate take over by Stratas foods. After that, things begun to go down hill until the final announcement that corporate had decided to shut down this facility and move all operations to Tennessee. I did agree to stay on with the company until the last day of operation's to assist with the transfer and transition of equipment and product formulas to Tennessee.
Pros
Good health inssurance, Decent pay.
Cons
Shutdown, Moved to location that had less productivity to save on transportation, Quote from management (Location Location Location)

Shipping supervisor (Former Employee) –  Englewood, NJNovember 26, 2017
Management lacks experience. They are hiring friends and relatives or former co workers to replace experienced people making our jobs harder and more demanding. There is favoritism with the new employees. The older employees are being assigned more roles and the hours are getting longer each day.
Corporate does not get involved even though it has been brought to there attention.
Pros
No pros
Cons
Stay away

A typical in the maintenance department you hit the time clock on the rtun , all lines need to be setup and checked. most all the employee are very friendly over 50 precent of the time.
some long days at work lots of different production orders which require a lot of inspection but that's what make this company great.

If you were to be a regular worker you would be union, which comes which a good benefits package and great pay, but if you are management you are not union and it is hard to get anything done because of the grievances for the smallest things
