Awful.
Processing (Former Employee) –  Ripon, WIDecember 23, 2018
Awful management that lies to your face and does not actually solve problems, workers are unhappy across all 3 shifts, no sense of accomplishment, outdated equipment, always behind schedule, company is mismanaged from the top down (another pet food recall and falling stock prices), etc.
Pros
Going home
Cons
Mandatory overtime, very unhappy place to work, lazy workers, poor management, outdated equipment, etc

Administrative Assistant (Former Employee) –  Orrville, OHDecember 6, 2018
While the offices were busy and sometimes stressful, the supervisors were well qualified and good to work for. Upper management seemed to be wise and have in mind the good of the employees as well as the community.

Good luck getting a Interview.
Tech (Former Employee) –  Pittsburgh, PADecember 3, 2018
Most plants are understaffed and they claim they need more employees. Good luck getting a job there though because it's all in who you know. The corporate computer will kick your application out and won't even send it to the plant. Disappointing when you have dedicated people wanting to work there but aren't even considered.

Seriously don't apply if you need a long term job
Fork lift operator (Former Employee) –  Frontenac, KSDecember 2, 2018
They knew when they hired me I would be laid off in 2 months due to Smuckers taking over. They knew I had a family to provide for and still hired me and neglected to say anything, until the day of. No notice or anything. It's been 2 months and my family is still trying to recover. Honestly, Americold is hiring and I make 3 grand a month there. Just go apply there.
Pros
Work schedule
Cons
Insurance EXPENSIVE, lack of communication

Plant Technician (Current Employee) –  Memphis, TNOctober 16, 2018
There are long working hours at the Smuckers plant in Memphis TN. They have an HSA Health plan that is garbage. You have to pay a High out of pocket expense for the Health Care Plan. They have a High Turn over rate of employment. People are constantly getting fired on a weekly basis.

Fork lift operator (Former Employee) –  Frontenac kansasSeptember 27, 2018
Nothing like walking in and being told you no longer have a job. Well that's they did to a bunch of us! Been knowledge since July, but didn't notify the workers until the day of lay offs. So much for being family oriented.
Pros
Work day rotation, pay, bosses great
Cons
Healthcare costly, lack of communication
