    Pros

    Great place to work. Everyone including Management is very easy to get along with. Willing to teach you plenty.

    Cons

    They have rotating shifts every Four months. This is hard on the family. The same people get the same seasons every year. Ex; you can have the day shift for Thanksgiving, X mas New years....etc. but, the same people are always on the swing shift during that time as well.........not a great system. it needs to be rotated every 2-3 months to be fair to everyone so the same people don't get the "best deal" or the "worst deal" every season.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    you"re doing great

    I worked at E. & J. Gallo full-time

    Pros

    The private (family) ownership allows management to invest in company and employees and maintain strategic long-term view. Met and learned from a lot of great people. Good sense of teamwork and rewarding work. Employees can chart a path through a variety of opportunities and learn a lot about the company while picking up valuable skills. Employees can take pride in the great portfolio of extremely successful products that friends and family enjoy.

    Cons

    Work-life balance can be tricky in roles relating to operations, due in large part to seasonal nature of the business. Managers seem to understand this though and company rewards employees for their efforts and celebrates successes with employees.
