Get out what you put in.

Production Labor (Former Employee) Gresham, OR

ProsYou get out of Scenic Fruit Company what you put into the job. The company is notorious for re-warding hard work. Most of the company's senior management started in seasonal or low level jobs at the company. The size of the company allows employees to see many side of a business form production to shipping, storage, billing, etc... The family that owns the company is gracious to their workers, and sees long term workers as an extended family. Year round employees seem to have a good cohesive bond.

ConsBecause of the seasonal nature of any agricultural business, employees may only be give 24 hours notice of when they will be working next. Sometimes the unpredictability of work is frustrating however if you are asked to work on short notice their is no penalty for declining. Company does not advance people who come to work and do their job, only those who show a willingness to do extra work or go above and beyond their job title.

Advice to Senior ManagementContinue to hire people from outside of the company. A fresh perspective can help senior employees make more creative decisions, and even better decisions with a longer list of options to choose from.
