As a whole it’s an ok company to work for. Unfortunately big promises where made about pay and progression and it was all a lie. I was told before I accepted the job that I could move from a level 1 to a 3 in a year and a half to 2 years. After almost a year they are saying it’s more like 5 years to get to level 3. There is no training, it’s the same job all day everyday without any opportunity to advance. I’m very disappointed

Smuckers in Longmont Co has multiple people”running the show” but no one is on the same page, it’s never the same story and they will NOT communicate with you, so it ends up you who is in trouble not them. They will not help you out and will lie on you and to you to look good or score some weak points. I was fired when I was doing what I’d been doing since I’d started without a change of pace or any signs of change or anyone saying anything then it was suddenly changed without warning, became an issue and I was fired, even after talking with everyone, like I did every time to make sure I had the right info and wouldn’t get in trouble, I did and not one of those people spoke up, told the truth, or had my back and I was just doing what I’d been told from the beginning.I lost my job. It’s infuriating when people get away with that but that’s how it goes here they’re right you’re wrong NO MATTER WHAT! You can contact the better business bureau but the paper work involved is lengthy and a headache.

Good pay but terrible benefits. The union was absolutely useless. Was promised tons of overtime, come to find out there idea of that was an 8hr shift on Saturday. Management wasn’t very bright especially the maintenance manager. Forced the “family values” down your throat but never actually stood behind it.

I worked at the decatur Al facility from June 208- Dec 2019 . I was bullied and taught nothing Of purées the head honcho or the supervisors that make 35 plus an hour could care less. I was fired because of this They don’t value there employees. They were the ones who hired me with little experience It was a nightmare. The employees were nasty tattle tales to put themselves on a pedestal The place should be investigated They preached this teamwork attitude but it was all for themselves I dreaded going there before they fired me for another employee threatening me Of course they labeled me a troubled maker and found a reason to fire me I hope karma visits them all

My job as an entry-level marketer has been engaging and full of extremely valuable experience, but all associate-level marketers at the company have grown very frustrated at the "wait your turn" culture that impedes advancement.

A typical day consists of 3 major things. starting off you need to be in a meeting to establish what happened the prior shift. Then you go and make sure your machines are running. and finally you have to fix anything if any of it breaks down.
Pros
free lunches
Cons
not a whole lot of variety with work.

What more can I say? The work hours are long, but we knew that before we started. Working from 6pm to 6am is the hardest part of the job.

Indeed wants more, but this is all I have to say. Why do you want war and peace Indeed? What do you do with this information?

I worked there for a little while and loved it. I left because I had a history and it wasn't quite old enough for them to hire me full time. I work there for about 10 months. If you do your job and show up to work you can make a career here. I plan on trying again in the future. Good people and great morals. They have a vision for growth and success. If your reading this and thinking about applying DO IT

If you become part of the Buddy System you can advance. Job posting sign up sheets are put up but the selecting process is already predetermined even though they pretend to go through a selecting process.

I was there for 22.5 years. It was always a good work environment. They are stickers for timeliness and honesty, but I appreciated that because that's what I expected from the co.
I will always have positive feelings about Smucker.

There are rewards to be had if you're willing to work off shift and a lot of overtime. Lean manufacturing practices make for a ot of overtime even when departments carefully staffed.
Pros
Benefits day one
Cons
Poor work-life balance
