    The different types of cheese you get to make is amazing.
    It's a great skill to have.
    Gorgonzola here is so good

    Making the blue cheese and fermentation.

    I worked at Beecher's Handmade Cheese full-time for less than a year

    Pros

    Beechers makes an amazing cheddar cheese, highly awarded and recognized

    Cons

    The work is extremely physical, there are no organized breaks, fresh water is rare, the pay is nominal, the management is hands-off and has an attitude bordering on arrogant. Promises of quick ascension is a lie. The cheese is more machine made than handmade and there are tons of toxic chemicals and vapors involved.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Try and manage. In 8 months of working at Beechers the management was NEVER on the floor supervising or advising. Nothing about the cheese process was taught and learned. Breaks need to be sheduled, water needs to be there always and the toxic vapors need to be recogbnized and handled.
