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.
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.

Amazing place to work. Hard to get off night shift because no one ever leaves. Benefits were great and cheap. They actually care about there employees. Pizza parties once a month, cookouts for holidays. Incentives to go over quota. Every last day of the week for your shift you get to take some dressing home.

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
Quality Analyst I (Current Employee) – Horse Cave, KY – November 8, 2017
You start your day by changing into your uniform. Clock in after changing, get your shift handoff with information on what to expect for your shift. Usually the department manager nor the supervisors will address anyone unless there has been a problem and then they assign more work for everyone to try and prevent the problem from happening again. Production floor is always chaotic because of a lack of communication and leadership. Somehow work still gets completed. It is an overall lack of organization that is so frustrating.
Lack of organization and communication, poor management
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.

I need a little more money and something that isn't a weekend shift. This is an amazing place to work and I love it. However, the shift and the money is putting a strain on my family as my wife is unable to work right now. I just need something more.
The company has favoritism. Seems like the management needs to hire the right skills instead of people they know. They have great employees trying to do the right thing. I hope the company focuses on their culture to fix some of their problems.
