    I worked at Johanna Foods full-time for more than 10 years

    Pros

    again, people are great and couple of bosses ok, benefits decent

    Cons

    low pay for the responsibility, upper management horrible and unappreciative, was a great place until current owner took over more worried about his charities than he is his dedicated workers. dont recommend applying here too many cons and very few pros, no summer picnics, no holiday dinners or parties. current owner took all these pros away, stay away, just stay away

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    use your own brain, make your own decisions without sucking up to the owner constantly, you guys are like puppets

    I worked at Johanna Foods as a contractor

    Pros

    I can only say one good thing about company and that is the free products you are allowed as an employee.
    I also will give credit to the fact the products are kosher and have seen the Rabbi on the property. I will not speak against that fact and only ask for Gods blessing on the Rabbi.

    Cons

    The work environment is a hostile one. I have gone to upper management for help and they attack you and try to intimidate you and make you fearful. I had also tried to speak to the owner and he was obnoxious and started yelling and cursing at me. When the new owner took over he took away everything that help build morale in the company including dress down Fridays.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Someone needs to stand up and deal with issues and not be afraid of the owner. No one should be able to have that much control over you.

    I worked at Johanna Foods full-time

    Pros

    Insurance, vacation, and overtime and that is about it.

    Cons

    Since there is a union there people with less seniority get treated very bad. I got a long with everyone except few people (2) who have bad history with many people there who also had seniority and I decided to go to my supervisor and the manager. Well that was a bad idea. Without getting into detail, I was the one thrown under the bas. Not surprised because many people there warned me about sticking up for myself and what would happen if I did. They were right.

     I worked so hard there, my back and arm would be sore. Also not all but many people are just absolutely LAZY. They would be sitting down cracking filthy dirty, and very inappropriate jokes and conversations and watch other hard working people do all the work. Very unprofessional and childish but its true. The supervisors just don't care at all. They support eachother. Many people are not happy there. I was not so I spoke up.......and now I dont work there.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    My advise to Johanna Foods is that you need to absolutely hire new supervisors and managers were are fair to all NOT just the seniors. Stop all politics and pays more attention to how your employees really feel because so many of them are happy. I'm "sure" that the management at Johanna will take "heed" after reading the reviews.
