Unless you are a shirt and tie not the place to work
Worker (Current Employee) – Farms – January 25, 2018
Company doesn't look out for the actual workers only what benefits the shirts and ties. Give a benefit just to take it away and it is a straight time job so no overtime. And vacation is some of the worst I've ever seen
Supervisor (Former Employee) – Croton, OH – January 12, 2018
Managers can fire at will for personal dislike. Most of the hourly staff are good people from different walks of life but some gossip as if they were children. No real structure for advancement and very little regard for staff from management. The core values are preached but not used or shown by any salary staff. Major issues when it comes to being ethical.
Pay was decent
Management was horrible especially senior processing manager
It was a pretty good place to work there is just no advancement for new people no way to advance your career the pay was pretty decent but you have to smell chickens all day so if you're okay with that I would say it's a pretty good place to work mostly Hispanics they don't pay overtime it is all straight time except holidays are double time and you are required to work every holiday if it falls on a weekday

Trillium Farms was a great place to work. Plenty of hours and fair pay along with excellent benefits. You got to meet and know all different kinds of people. All employees were nice. Trillium makes sure that all employees are well educated in their job position and safety is a big thing for them.

The people don't care one bit about you. hours are crazy and pay is very basic. they worked you to death and you could not miss any days, be a min. late or they would not give you vacation days. you had to earn them,
Rotator (Former Employee) – Johnstown, OH – September 14, 2017
This environment was ver annoying to me. Machines would break down constantly. This would cause boxes to be backed up and stress me out. They do not require overtime pay so when you work over 40 hours it's the same pay rate. Very loud environment with people yelling and ver hard to understand.
General Manager (Former Employee) – Johnstown, OH – July 11, 2017
very bad management and is only something you should do if you have no place other to work. this job is able to be done by anyone who is willing to do the work. could be an 8 hour day but could also be a 10 hour day when work is needed.
Quality Control Inspector (Former Employee) – Johnstown, OH – June 23, 2017
This place is okay to work as a temporary job. The people are nice, most of them are Hispanic. The management is horrible and they don't care for their employees. This job is also underpaid for all the work that's done. I felt bad about the Packers they work so much and don't get appreciated. Also, they said that there are advancement opportunities, but they just say that.
Stacker (Former Employee) – Croton, OH – April 6, 2017
Very great place to work at, hard and fast paced work, but easy to handle and always room to advance if you show the initiative. Supervisors are understanding, and the Senor Site Manager will always work with you if you work hard.
PRODUCTION AND ASSEMBLY (Former Employee) – Croton, OH – August 10, 2016
I enjoyed working with the majority of the people there, which made it fun. But after i was nearly killed there from a freak accident inside of a silo, they fired me without a warning and told me that i could never work there again, and then they denied that i even worked there.
Manager (Former Employee) – Croton – January 7, 2015
The company is the worst, unorganized, and least serious company of its size. Over 400 employees. There is a lot of favoritism for those that remain from the previous era when the company was shut down by the State of Ohio for noncompliance and animal abuse. These people do whatever they want and have absolutely no accountability. The company is a joke. No bonuses, incentives, or anything are given to supervisors. Upper management is stuck in a tug of war and nobody will take responsibility or lead on anything. One upper management decides on an initiative and another member overrides it and confuses hourly employees after a plan has been implemented. Certain departments are abandoned by management and run as individual companies. The company does not know how to treat people and it seems like a large group of high school kids on a playground in regards to social groups and synergy.
There are many good people that work at the company, but a major change in upper management must occur for the company to be worth working for. If you are thinking of working for this company, I highly recommend you go elsewhere. You are required to live in Johnstown, Ohio where the cost of living is outrageous. $1400 to $2000 a month in rent and food expenses for a single person. Go elsewhere!
Someone that left and went elsewhere- couldn't be happier.
great to learn how to have "tough skin" and battle daily with those trying to bring you down
