I worked for Marzetti's for nearly 25 years and my job was eliminated by management. There were very few opportunities for advancement, few perks and average benefits. I was let go because they said my job was "unnecessary". I'm sure they dumped my work onto someone else that is already overworked.
Office Coordinator for Inn Maid Noodles Brand (Current Employee) – Millersburg, OH – August 2, 2018
There was recently a culture change at Marzetti that has led to gaps in support and a lack of trust in upper management, which is reflected in operations at the plants. The astronomical turnover rate at the corporate HQ has led to so much being pushed onto the plant designees, and there are so many programs the different departments are pushing that either don't coordinate with one another, or are being pushed before the previous program is even completely realized. It's frustrating.

This was a great job great people, learned how to make a variety of products assemble pallatize and ship. This job taught me time management as well as how to pallatize and pack for shipment. I was also given the opportunity to work in the spice department first female in 11 years what an hornor.
For 13 of the nearly 18 years I worked for theT. Marzetti company, it was a great family oriented, and work family oriented company to work for until a new CEO was named to elevate the company from a one billion dollar company to a five billion dollar company and started discrediting any persons who had been with the company for more than a decde in lieu of new talent that did not understand our core business and found ways to eliminate anyone who would dare try to maintain a healthy service level as the core changes to the business were being implemented.
I understand having a healthy bottom line and growing stock value, I just feel you do to have to lose your car who built the business to move forward into higher growth.

I worked there for almost 16 years... the main reason was the great pay. I was fired because they got all new management and were and still are out to get rid of all the employee that have been there so long. They fired all the supervisor that had been there for more then 30 years and worked hard. It is union there for the employees but the new management is working at getting rid of the union employees .. It's very sad to see a company want to get rid of the people that have been there so long working hard and many hours.
I believe the ceo needs to pick better people to be in charge. The supervisors are uneducated in the role of knowing how to treat people. The production manager is also guilty an lacks empathy, his way of making people work harder is promoting fear of loss of work an scare tactics. When the regular hourly employees go to work it feels like we're headed to prison

I cant begin to explain how difficult it is to stay employed at this place. There's a very low lack of leadership and advancement its all politics and the production manager is a complete waste of time
Management puts pressure on supervisors to perform certain task, but they shackle your hands by limiting your control. They expect you to work so hard (up to 7 days) with few compensations outside of your normal salary. If you do your job on time they ask why couldn't you do more since you finished on time.
Operator/Packer (Former Employee) – Horse Cave, KY – January 13, 2018
Find out if any problems has happened on my machine during the previous shift. Learned how to run three types of machines. Checking product and collecting data for QA. Management would help lines out if they ran that line before being promoted.

Since management has changed, the whole overall moral of the company has changed tremendously. There are many things I have learned since being there since you are always working with the customers of the product. You strive to make the best product in the most efficient and productive way. Safety is always first.
raises are not fair across the board with the different jobs that we all do.
