    Full time Supervisor

    Anonymous Employee (Current Employee) Elgin, IL

    ProsGreat core of employees in the plant, very friendly and helpful.

    ConsNot told the truth when interviewing with company about position
    Micromanaged, will not allow Supervisors to run departments or make decision
    Way over reactive to situations
    No safety program at all, machine safeguards are all bypassed and injuries are common
    Equipment run to failure

    Advice to Senior ManagementDo not allow one person to call all the shots
    Look at the long term not just today
    Time for a management change!

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend

    bad company, hard to communicate

    Quality Technician (Current Employee) Elgin, IL

    ProsEasy to pass the interview and get the offer.

    Conslow salary, very long working time, overworking time.

    Advice to Senior ManagementVery mean HR and supervisor, never care about employee's situation. In the phone interview, I told the HR that I can only start work in the end of May, which my CPT allows me to. But the HR didn't share this information to the supervisor, force me to work before May 17th, which is illegal. Hard to communicate with them, just refuse the offer. Waste me a lot of time!

    Great Experience, with lots exposure to senior leadership.

    Anonymous Employee (Current Employee)

    ProsThe best part about working for JBSS was the small office environment where you could see the senior leadership on a daily basis if you choose to.

    ConsThe only downside of working for JBSS is that it is located in Elgin, IL which is to far to live in Chicago and work for so you have to live in the suburbs.

    Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend – I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company
