    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 Management

    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.

  2. left to train myself then "reprimanded" when I didn't do it their way

    Pros

    The staff was very friendly and the job was simple. The pay was average, but there was a lot of opportunity for overtime.

    Cons

    Management does not seem to care about their employees. Not the most exciting job.

    Advice to Management

    Care more about your employees and they will care more about the company.

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

    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 Management

    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.

    Pros

    Good Benefits, steady work load

    Poor wages, poor wage increases, excepted overtime through holidays

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

    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 Management

    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.
