    Pros

    Good benefits. They have a lot of programs to help their workers. Something like the Father company taking care of their people
    Mr Allen is an awesome person and I am sure that the way this plant runs, is not the way he wanted it to be.

    Cons

    MANY To list. I have read the reviews from other people. I was one of the nurses there. I wanted to help the workers by giving them rest for their hands when they would complain of pain to their hands. This is a repetitive type injury and most of the time it goes away with rest. I got a lot of grief from the managers who only care about their production numbers. The workers in the plant are treated badly. Yes! People talk behind your back. When I worked there, the Mexicans did not like me cuss I am not Mexican. I am a Puerto Rican, but I Speak English well and prefer to speak it in the Business environment. It should be required that the people speak English, not a foreign language. I can go on and on, but I hope you get the point.

    I was fired a week after I had a high review. I was told I was doing great, and keep up the good work. I was not told why they were letting me go, but I think I know why.... I Cared deeply for the workers there and I tried to help to heal them, not enslave them more.

    Advice to Management

    Make sure your people get a clue!! and listen to those in the "battle line". They know what goes on there.

    Pros

    The benefits offered are outstanding. Cheap medical, vision and dental, weekly pay, great 401k, they are willing to train you in whatever position they hire you into. I got riderjack, forklift, reach truck, and other manufacturing food safety certification without any prior experience.

    Cons

    They cannot keep enough employees to satisfy their need so the workload gets passed on to everyone else. On one plant the manager seemed to ignore the shortage and by making us sign job descriptions she expected to eventually place the blame on the employees. On the other plant they threaten us to deduct points and fire us if we didn't show up for "mandatory" days, which eventually the CEO came in and stated that they could not force us to work overtime. Too bad thing are not like "back in the day."

    Advice to Management

    Rethink your strategy and your point system. Employees that take work lightly or as a joke are better be replaced as soon as possible, for you can loose employees that wish to work and grow with the company.

    Pros

    To manage many projects at once.

    Cons

    Constant executive management changes therefore a sustainable culture is never really established.

    Advice to Management

    Don't make changes for the sake of making changes. Listen to your tenured employees. They have strong suggestions for improvement. You have created an ivory tower, stay in-tuned to your locations.

    Pros

    Good benefits and time off / vacation, average compensation,

    Cons

    Still finding their direction from merger in 2011/2012. Change, change and more change without adequate support to implement goals. Communication is lacking compounding the ability to achieve company goals.

    Advice to Management

    Communicate more effectively. Talk to your people and listen. Those doing the job on a daily basis are more in tune with what can be accomplished and be manageable.
