I worked at Bay Valley Foods full-time

Pros

Good market niche for a troubled economy: Contract Pack. Company founded by Keebler management team has several major executives brought in from Conagra.
Trying to bring local management teams out of the 1950's, with some success

Cons

Company is trying to keep up with big boys, but has "small company" management teams in place at locations. Local management team went to great lengths to control info that got through to headquarters; rather medieval: "There's only a problem if somebody finds out". A lot of management turnover in last two years; &0% of employees were minimum wage contract labor or temps.
 Operates with limited budget in competition with better-financed giants..

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Keep a closer watch on the local management teams, as they are still fiefdoms.

    I have been working at Bay Valley Foods full-time (less than an year)

    Pros

    The only benefit is the pay rate. It is decent for northwestern, PA.

    Cons

    Very unprofessional work environment on 1st shift. People are very judgmental and nonstop gossip dominates the conversation moreso than the actual responsibilities of the job.
    Incredibly poor training program on first shift.
    You are evaluated more on your likability than your actual work performance.
    Non-union.
