good place to work
Assembler / Quality control (Former Employee) –  Little Chute, WIOctober 15, 2018
good people to work with. The hardest part of the job is getting adjusted to the work schedule and it a little difficult to set up a school schedule to the way the shifts are placed.
Pros
coffee people you work with
Cons
slow at moving up in the company, changing scheduling

Machine Operator/Utility (Former Employee) –  Appleton, WIOctober 12, 2018
I was a packer at first the quickly excelled to a utility operator. Then to a machine operator. Being a packer was quick paced at time sometimes slow. But there was always something to do. A utility operator was pretty much everywhere. From the front of line to the end I would help where I was needed and made sure everything was running as it should. As a machine operator I would do set ups for coffee or teas to be put into k-cup and the sent to packaging.

Awesome co-workers
Production Supervisor (Former Employee) –  Little Chute, WISeptember 12, 2018
I love working for this company, but upper management needs to be more human and more caring about their employees. The people on the production floor are great and everyone is a team player. The night shift is long and difficult because of the long hours , but the people make it fun. The company is not too environmentally friendly and I hope this is something they are working on.
Pros
people
Cons
upper management doesn't go to the floor often - don't understand the process or the flow of things.

Disorganized chaos
Machine Operator (Current Employee) –  Little Chute, WIAugust 21, 2018
Management has no clue what they're doing. Expect you to hit certain production goals but then gives you an impossible schedule. Constantly have to change over, you're lucky if you're on the same job for longer than a couple hours. The machinery is in terrible condition and most maintenance techs dont have a clue what they're doing. Been on mandatory OT for over a year now and no one in the office cares. The supervisors are inconsistent and make up their own rules, what you can do on one shift you cant do on another. Constantly training people due to this place being a revolving door, lucky if people come back after the first day. The ones that do stick around are taken advantage of since they're the only ones that know what they're doing. The only postive is the pay and benefits. The place is hot and dirty and poorly managed. HR cant get anything right, always "lose" FMLA paperwork, screw up on how much your charged for benefits, dont get raises until months after your review eventhough your supervisor said you'll get one and your lucky if you can even get in contact with them. Do yourself a favor and stay far far away from this place unless you like high stress and constant forced OT.
Pros
Discounts on coffee, pay and benefits package
Cons
Constant mandatory OT, poor management from the top down, hot and filthy environment, HR is useless

Easy Work but Management Doesn't Care About Employees
Utility Operator (Current Employee) –  Little Chute, WIAugust 15, 2018
Easy work to do but management (HR) doesn't stick up for their employees or help them out. You have to wear your sleeves down in 90+ degree weather with humidity. They don't provide you with cold water. Operators who have been there for awhile become rude to new individuals coming in. They think they are better than others. If you like to work overtime then this is the place. You average 50 hours a week. They make you work at least one day of overtime on your long weekend off.

This place sucks
Employee (Former Employee) –  Little Chute, WIJune 25, 2018
HR doesn't really care about the employees. They only care about what they want to care about. Instead of trying to sit down and come up with solutions that can work for both parties they just listen to what one person has to say and take their word for everything without talking to the other person. Real professional. They are keen on keeping replaceable people and firing irreplaceable people.

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.

All work and no play? Trilliant is for you.
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.

Poor Management
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

Cons
They don't care about you

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.

Bad management and coworkers
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
