    I worked at Country Pure Foods

    Pros

    You will learn a lot. You are always working and moving around. It's a union job.

    Cons

    It's a union jobs so seniority come first. They make you pay for it. You will be forced to work 12 hours when ever they say so. It don't matter if you had an appointment. You are a number; not a person.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Really bad attitudes. They talk down on their employees as if they are children. They will lie on you. Charlie was the best to deal with!!!!! I quit.

    It is a great place to work if career development is not important to you.

    I have been working at Country Pure Foods full-time (more than an year)

    Pros

    Small company atmosphere gives maximum visibility for projects that you are involved in. Convenient location makes it an easy commute for those in the Akron/Canton area. The pay seems to rival larger companies

    Cons

    No upward mobility or career development objectives. This is great if you are a director or VP but doesn't bode well for those caught in the middle. Some positions require frequent travel.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Motivate your employees by valuing their opinions about changing "old" procedures to maximize efficiency. Train yourself and subordinates with current management techniques while cultivating/promoting continuous improvement. Reward those that follow along and get rid of those who don't.

    Increase the wages and more employees would consider staying for a longer period.

    I have been working at Country Pure Foods

    Pros

    -Great People
    -Pays above the industry Average
    -Understanding and flexible with personal life
    -Job security due to the industry
    -Access to senior management

    Cons

    The most frustrating thing about Country Pure Foods is the lack of research and business plans. When it comes to new products, we just go with whatever idea a sales manager comes up with for their region-- without doing any research on the benefit to the company and if it will sell in other markets.

    Also, there is little room for growth and promotion. Most likely, you will stay in the position you are in for your entire career at Country Pure Foods.

    The company does not respond well to new ideas and changing technologies. Also, the sales staff, while experience, is older and does not have any insight on new ways of selling.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Start giving credit where credit is due. "Lower level" employees are doing work, and their managers are passing it off as their own. This creates little incentive for employees to do better work.
