Its has its stresses, and good sides.

Production Associate (Current Employee) Cincinnati, OH

Pros- Decent Vacation/ Benefits
- Starting pay is decent. Im talking about fdf not the store itself I dont work in the stores.
- Break times are adequate
- They address issues with equipment very well if you are a operator.

ConsPace is VERY hectic and takes some adjustment to adapt to.
Hours can be limited from week to week.
You will work most holidays.
There can be a lot of stress and negativity from time to time.

Advice to Senior ManagementI would say this for everyone not just management, but taking classes on stress management would be helpful for everyone and should probably be brought up more in meetings. Focus more on the personal aspects to help your employees feel more valued.

Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend
