    I have been working at Pacific Cheese full-time (less than an year)

    Pros

    QA department has decent wages. Never short on work hours. Middle management tries to help you and is friendly. The relationship between QA and Production is healthy; production leads and supervisors work with you as QA, minimal bickering. Benefits are average, upper management is ok. More vacation time for the first year than retail or casinos. This company recently achieved SQF 3 (a higher standard of Safe, Quality Food so companies that require this certification will become interested in this company now. It is certainly growing.)

    Cons

    If you don't want over-time, it is a bit hard to deal. Sometimes you have to put in either 6 days of 8.5-9 hours or 5 days of 10+ hours. Production associates have to start as temps who don't get paid very well and are expected to work heavy labor plus overtime. This causes high turnover for production associates in some areas.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    I sometimes wish work-life balance was a little higher on priorities, but I know American Corporations can't conceive of doing this because it won't help the bottom line. This would include things such as more vacation time (although this company provides more vacation time at the first year than any retail/casino I've worked for, but still nowhere near our European counterparts) and less overtime with a little more pay.
