Vendor Relations Manager (Current Employee) –  Scotts Valley, CAJune 17, 2018
I have learned a lot working at Threshold. There are many opportunities to learn about supplements and natural products.
Threshold has a very family feeling between employees. The owner and CEO are always around and are involved in the day to day.

Come Help us transform and grow!
Manufacturing Process Manager (Current Employee) –  Scotts Valley, CAMay 28, 2018
I've been with Threshold for a year now and can say that the company has and continues to transform. The changes at Threshold have been very positive for the employees. Threshold is growing extremely fast and has many new and exciting positions and opportunities as a result of this growth. They also provide many internal opportunities for training and advancement to existing employees as well. Of course with this growth comes a little chaos which in normal. Manufacturing and Packaging employees have enjoyed recent wage increases, implementation of production incentive and bonus programs along with other employee recognition programs. New plant management has brought new perspective, safety, training, professionalism, energy and excitement to the company. The culture of the company has gone through an amazing transformation and is truly an awesome place to collaborate. Aside from the goal of the company to help people be well through Wellness education and award winning products, it's simply a great place to work! The future is very bright!
Pros
Fun and exciting place to work
Cons
Fast paced and challenging work

Staff was great to work with..
Shipping/Receiving/ Inventory Associate (Former Employee) –  Santa Cruz, CAMay 27, 2018
Seems like at times, they'd hire ANYBODY!

Some people are just not cut out for the working environment. To be honest, upper management sometimes would hire just because they knew a person personally who just needed a job, but weren't cut out for it!

A New Day at Threshold Enterprises
Vice President, Distribution & Logistics (Current Employee) –  Santa Cruz, CAApril 12, 2018
I've been with Threshold for several years now and can say that the company has and continues to transform almost daily. The changes at Threshold have been very positive for the employees and the company. Threshold is growing and has many new and exciting positions and opportunities as a result of this growth, and has also provided many internal opportunities for training and advancement to existing employees as well. Warehouse and Manufacturing employees have enjoyed recent wage increases, implementation of production incentive and bonus programs along with other employee recognition programs. New management in many areas over the past couple of years has brought new perspective, energy and excitement to the company. The culture of the company has gone through an amazing transformation and is truly an awesome place to collaborate. Aside from the goal of the company to help people be well through Wellness education and award winning products, it's simply a great place to work!

Some of the people are fun to work with and others will look to stab you in the back just to try and cover their butt. Reviews were never given annually as promised.

Typical warehouse bad management
Employee (Current Employee) –  Winchester, VAAugust 20, 2017
Don't expect to be treated like a human being. Expect to be belittled daily in morning meetings and reporting anything you are offended by to be quickly dismissed. The place has high turnover based on management and their inability to speak with employees with any resemblance of respect.
Pros
incentive checks based on facility production
Cons
Incentive checks are used as against employees

Manufacturing Technician (Former Employee) –  Scotts Valley, CAJuly 19, 2017
This was a 6 day a week Graveyard shift job. It kept me busy but i also had no life for the month and a half i worked here. I would start work at 10pm and get out by 6 am. I never really saw my friends and had to make due with my employees. Some of those employees were ex-cons so it was never a truly trustworthy environment. I remember an employee got his new computer stolen from the lockers and they never really tried to follow up on finding it.

Typical day was cut up into 2 breaks and a lunch with an alarm to inform everyone. I mainly cleaned up the rooms after they were used for vitamin production. Later i started helping with the mixing and milling processes. It was a lot of manual labor involved and also the working environment was very loud. The most enjoyable part of this job was seeing macro scale synthesis first hand and learning about the QC/QA part of this industry. That is something i can use for the rest of my career life. Other than that though, this was through a temp agency and i was not paid properly. I'm glad that temp agency went under and got sued, they were violating so many rights just to exploit people and their pay. One of the reasons i quit.
Pros
Consistent work
Cons
Not a professional environment, even with the long time employees there

Recent changes in upper management are significantly improving Threshold
Manager (Current Employee) –  Scotts Valley, CAJune 8, 2017
Departments at Threshold vary widely, so prospective candidates should evaluate the department they are applying to, and not rely solely on the reviews posted here, many of which are only relevant for manufacturing and warehouse positions, which have been justifiably described as difficult and undercompensated.
Recent changes in upper management are significant and are already leading to improvements in work conditions in most departments.
Now is a good time to join Threshold and to take advantage of the improved work conditions and to help push for continued progress.
Pros
Flexible hours, kind coworkers
Cons
Pay scale is low side for many still.

Managment Doesn't know what they are doing
Sales Associate (Current Employee) –  Scotts Valley, CAApril 4, 2017
it's a great job if you want to work with a bunch of dysfunctional people who can't seem to figure out the floor form the ceiling. It seems that this business has a potential to be very successful but the CEO and upper management don't know what they are doing.

Great first job out of college but is a stepping stone to a better career job.
Laboratory Analyst I (Current Employee) –  Scotts Valley, CAMarch 8, 2017
In a typical day you can find yourself performing some analytical test, train in different areas and work on special projects. The job fills the day and you have a comfortable work environment.
Pros
Experience in different QC fields
Cons
horrible pay

Worst place to work
Packaging (Former Employee) –  Scotts Valley, CAMarch 4, 2017
Supervisors have No management skills what so ever. People are over worked and mistreated and the HR can careless if you have any concerns!! theres plenty of harassment, intimidation, favoritism, retaliation, verbal and mental abuse from managment and nothing is ever done about it. The pay is a joke and very little chance to grow within this company. Very unsafe place to work. In this company all they care for is making money for themselves exploiting the employees.
Pros
Really nice hard working people
Cons
Selfish owner and managment personnel

Shift Supervisor (Former Employee) –  Scotts Valley, CAMarch 1, 2017
It is going through many changes. It does not have a good reputation in the past which they are addressing, but much of the old management has not been educated and can not communicate well. A Couple of the new hires are exceptional, but they have a huge task ahead of them. They must work on training, communication, and adding true professionals in upper management.

I loved the people and they were good workers, but there was not much encouragement from management which frustrates most of them.
Pros
Quality products
Cons
Needs to come into the new mulinium
