Pros

The best part about working for JBSS was the small office environment where you could see the senior leadership on a daily basis if you choose to.

Cons

The only downside of working for JBSS is that it is located in Elgin, IL which is to far to live in Chicago and work for so you have to live in the suburbs.

    Pros

    This was my first project right after college. People were very down to earth and the opportunity was amazing.

    Cons

    The only downside I can mention was it was very far away for me to travel there. It was my first job and I really needed to start somewhere. Luckily it was here.


  2. Quantity not quality

    Pros

    401k and health benefits. Salary employees have better benefits also.

    Cons

    High employee turnover rate due to the language barrier and poor on the job training. Terrible communication within the company. Unable to plan weekends because you work schedule revolves around the production schedule. Constant belittling from management. Your suggestions or ideas will only be taken into consideration depending how much it will cost to put into action or if the company fails a customer audit of the factory. Your job responsibility will involve other departments unrelated to what your duties of your job title. Hourly employees receive 2 weeks vacation and must wait 10 years to receive 3 weeks.

    Advice to Management

    Practice what you preach. Why have yearly training on quality or LEAN manufacturing when the supervisors worry about their hourly quota production?
