Pros

Good Christmas party although the company picnic was moved out of the area. They claim no layoffs in 75 years. Clean facilities to work in.

Cons

Hardy any benefits at all, pricey insurance and poor treatment by management. Not friendly to empolyee's family. Only 2 weeks vacation per year for as long as you work there. Blackout dates through the summer months. Equipment is filthy and unsanitary for a beverage/food producer.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Bring in competent and knowledgeable managers. Current management is not functioning effectively. Listen to knowledgeable employees who know whats going on at ground level. Provide sick days and accrued vacation instead of fixed time allocation.

    Over worked, under paid, irrational decisions, dog eat dog.

    Pros

    If you can pass a drug test, don't steal, live within 15 miles of a facility, are a long time local and will give up drinking Coke you will likely be hired. Be ready to start the same day. Paid weekly or semi monthly on a current basis but will be deducted for undelivered items arbitrarily loaded on your truck - depending on whatever rules corporate feels like instituting.

    Cons

    Work environment - looks good on the outside but downhill from there. Broken equipment, laborious tasks, and a sense that management is always out to get you. Cameras on all work areas. Management is contradictory of each other. Hourly employees generally stay under 90 days, but never any overtime. Salaried team members virtually on call 24/7. Sales team works Saturdays and holidays. Most paid below average with insufficient benefits.

    Pros

    You have a great opportunity in meeting a diverse range and type of customers. as well as a hands on approach to dealing with issues.

    Cons

    Senior management does not tolerate creative thinking. They want soldiers that do what they are told. Personal life is secondary to working at PMA and if you have any personal tragedies it may be the end of your career with the company. Ownership only cares about the profit and employees are just cogs in the wheels that can be interchanged at whim. Professionalism is unheard of though management think they are very professional. They suffer from group-think and have no outside experience to compare their organization with (other than the Marine Corp.)

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Sell your franchise back to PepsiCo.
