    Given the opportunity to learn about quality control when I had never before worked as QAT. GREAT EXPERIENCE!!!!

    Quality Control Technician (Current Employee) Rancho Cucamonga, CA

    ProsGreat benefits and pay is good to start
    Everyone given 40 hours and chance for overtime
    My lead is very good and very helpful. Whenever I feel too stressed and overwhelmed with all the workload and issues he gives me a hand. Most of my co-workers are great and helpful as well.
    A good place to learn more and more. Strong potential for growth within the company.

    ConsThe stress level can be very high at times and overwhelming
    The pay could be a little better
    Some co-workers' attitudes hard to cope with

    Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend

    Mission just sucked as a company

    Anonymous Employee (Former Employee) Mountain Top, PA

    Prossome of the pros to working for Mission Foods is that their Benefits are good (Dental, Health, and Vision). another pro pending what you are looking for is that there are no real rules or policies in place, and the ones that are are not followed even by mgnt.

    Consthe biggest con for me was that there were no rules or policies in place and the ones that were did not get followed. as a supervisor i had to fight with mgnt and hr on certain issues even if the issues were written in black and white (handbook). there was always excuses made for the associates. antoher con is that mgnt wants nothing to do with your idea's, they will wait for a while and then use that same idea as if it was there own. no recogition and no team work. there was always fighting among the shift and no one liked to take responsibilty for their actions. way to many excuses for the assoicates and mgnt.

    Advice to Senior Managementturn it up a notch, hold people accountable for their actions and dont worry so much about making yourself look good. give credit to those whom deserve it!

    Gruma/Mission Foods

    Marketing (Former Employee) Dallas, TX

    ProsGreat categories of products. Growth potential for the business is strong.

    ConsNepotism prevails. If you aren't from Mexico with the right family connections you have a limited future. Women have a tougher time than men.

    Advice to Senior ManagementYour corporate reputation is not good in the U.S. Few people stay for more than a few years and for good reason. Provide meaningful career growth to non family members to retain them.

    They need to treat their employees better.

    Maintenance Mechanic (Current Employee) Wilkes Barre, PA

    ProsThe maintenace department is currently working a four day twelve hour day work week which gives us four days off everyweek. They do post job openings for curreent employees to apply for before taking applications from outside the company.

    ConsThis is the first place I ever worked at that doesn't have sick days or personal days. Also only have one week vacation after two and a half years with the company. I feel the company is overly concerned about downtime and leave things that should be repaired right away till the weekend. The plant is only closed for two holidays a year, Christmas day and Thanksgiving Day.

    Advice to Senior ManagementThey schould learn how to treat their employees better. Stop thinking that their doing you a favor by employing you. Maybe then they wouldn't be losing employees to every new company that opens in the area.
