I liked it!
Kelly Services Temp (Former Employee) –  Little Chute, WIMay 30, 2018
Hate that I felt cheated but not by them but the temp service i was introduced to them by, or I'd still be working there. It sucked for trying to find a new job that could match the pay, and the people I worked with.

Inventory Control Manager (Former Employee) –  Little Chute, WI 54140April 16, 2018
Work hours are long and they force mandatory overtime all year, without taking into account some people have children that they would love to see. Training program is not good at all, you are thrown into the mix and expected to learn quickly. Upper management isn't engaged in what goes on on the production floor, nor do they care, as long as production is met and deliveries are sent.
Pros
Good pay & benefits
Cons
Management, hours and training

Utility worker (Former Employee) –  Little Chute, WIMarch 18, 2018
Extreme wastefulness of a lot of product going directly to the landfill, "that's just the way it is!" says the machine operators. Fast paced environment that only cares about high product turnout, disregarding safety and waste. Employees are mostly unhappy due to the mandatory overtime 12 hr shifts that doesn't ever stop. Lots of backstabbing on certain shifts amongst operators who poorly train newly hired workers. Very loud work environment, frequent bruising on limbs from bumping into machines, scrapes and cuts from cardboard boxes. Continuous heavy lifting of 100 lb boxes. No matter how hard you try, you're never good enough. High employee turnover. If the machine operators dislike you, you will be fired.

Coffee Machine Operator (Former Employee) –  Little Chute, WIMarch 12, 2018
They make you work mandatory overtime and don't train very good. There's no communication and they lay people off before they give out bonuses. I recommend not working there, you will not have a social life.
Pros

Don't care about you or your family
Line Assistant (Former Employee) –  Little Chute, WIJanuary 13, 2018
I was hired m-f 7-330. Then they decide to involuntarily change evryone's schedule to 12's with a 2-2-3 schedule. Doesn't work when you have small children. Don't give any other option to stay. Don't work there if you have children because they don't care.

Good pay if you can deal with it
Employee (Former Employee) –  Little Chute, WIJanuary 11, 2018
I started working at Trilliant back when it was still Victor Allen's Coffee. It was a nice, relaxed place to work. Management knew what was going on and business was good. Then they started growing the company or "Brand" and everything went down hill. They brought in a new supervisor that drove away the plant manager, then he got promoted, and fired all the people that had been with the company for years to bring in his own team. Then they started forcing overtime on all the employees, but yet saying they "cared about the employees and their familys". Then they started firing people for ridiculous reasons, they treat their employees like slaves, don't give any really notice for when they for someone in for overtime and then expect you to burn your PTO or vacation time to cover if you have plans for a day they were forcing you in. The benifits were great, all the free coffee you could take home, they do Timber Rattler employee days for employees and their familys, if they aren't forcing you into work, holiday partys, if they aren't forcing you into work. The uncapped bonus program was great. But management was completely clueless and wont listen or open their eyes to what is really happening there.

It was a good place to work.
Utility worker (Former Employee) –  Little, Chute, WIDecember 17, 2017
Multi-assembly line roles, filling in for people on different lines. Utility adjustments, weight adjustments, on machines. Making sure right product was going on machine and that machine was set correctly for product on machine. Palletizing boxes so labels were facing outward at all times for review. Putting barcodes on boxes.
I learned multitasking, machine adjustments, communication with fellow employees as needed for proper adjustments.
Management was great. They interacted with me and they motivated and inspired me.
It was a comfortable environment to work in.
The hardest part was adjusting and learning to collaborate with new hires.
The most enjoyable part of the job was being able to work with people I liked.
Pros
You get free coffee and the learning experience and working with good people.
Cons
Working and adjusting to a third shift.

Money good, people terrible
Machine Operator (Former Employee) –  Little Chute, WIDecember 2, 2017
I started here back in 2015 under different supervisor and through the years and the changes it has gotten more stressful, so much overtime and they could care less about any family issues you may have. Management doesn’t have a clue to what goes on and if they do they don’t care. If your not on the right crew or friends with the right people you are not getting any raises or moved up.
Pros
Good pay
Cons
Bad management, poor leadership.

poorly managed and unsafe
Material Handler (Former Employee) –  Little Chute, WIDecember 2, 2017
Poorly managed. The hours are very long for the amount per hour you make. The conditions were unsafe meaning soooo much product staged on the floor that it made it unsafe.I'm surprised in my time working there no one got ran over by a forklift.

Utility Operator (Former Employee) –  Little Chute, WINovember 25, 2017
If you enjoy working with a bunch of Temps who don't care about their jobs and mostly have criminal records, having people quit on a daily basis to be replaced with a temp the next day, being under appreciated by management, and doing the most boring / repetitive job... Then this job is for you. Worked there for 3 years and only enjoyed working 5%of the time. Filled with empty promises of promotions to only be passed up because someone has a friend high up. Pay isn't bad which is what kept me there too long. I was much happier after making a dollar less somewhere I was appreciated.
Pros
Pay is ok
Cons
Management, coworkers, empty promises, massive turn over

Decent job
Utility Operator (Former Employee) –  Little Chute, WISeptember 1, 2017
If you want a job that's not overly stressful and still you have enough to keep you busy to make sure the time passes this would be the job for you. It is 12 hours but with it being easy it doesn't seem like it. Everybody is friendly and you never really have any problems there with people and staff is decent.

Assembly Line Worker (Former Employee) –  Little Chute, WIMay 16, 2017
A typical day at work was very repetitive. I learned how to run a machine and how to put together the products we sold and box and ship them off to stores that sell the product. Management was very helpful and knowledgeable. The hardest part of the job was being on your feet for 12 hours straight on a cement floor and doing the same task over and over for many hours and all week. The most enjoyable part of the job was knowing exactly what you would be doing during your work day and knowing that it wasn't difficult to get what you needed to get done during the day.

This was a fast paced position requiring a high level of accuracy.
Production Team Member / Seasonal Position (Former Employee) –  Little Chute, WIFebruary 10, 2017
A typical day started at 5:40am and ended at 6:05pm.

During the interview they wanted full time people... but really they were looking for seasonal help.

Company bonus would be paid out to whom ever was working on site...Many people had been let go before company bonus was disbursed and before your first 90 days were up.

Hardest part of my job was standing on my feet for 12 hours in steel toed shoes. No place to sit... always had to be moving or doing some kind of work.

Production floor did not have good temp control would always come off it sweating ( this was in the winter). Heard there is very little air-conditioning in the summer. Only fans to help move the air.

The most enjoyable part of the job was learning how coffee is processed and all the various forms coffee is used.
It is incredible to see the stages the coffee goes through just in the packaging process.
Pros
They paid well. Company provided work clothes and cleaning for work clothes.
Cons
Mandatory overtime

Terrible place to work
Warehouse (Former Employee) –  Little Chute, WIMarch 24, 2016
This company used to be a fun place to work but they are becoming increasingly corporate. They claim to be family oriented but they aren't. They don't care what your life situation is, they will NOT work with you. They fired over half the employees who were eligible for the bonus days before they handed them out. I would highly discourage anyone from working for them.
Pros
Mediocre pay
Cons
Hostile work environment from management, micro managing, etc
