bad company, hard to communicate

Quality Technician (Current Employee)
Elgin, IL

I have been working at John Sanfilippo & Son full-time for less than a year

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!

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend

Great Experience, with lots exposure to senior leadership.

Anonymous Employee (Current Employee)

I have been working at John Sanfilippo & Son as an intern for less than a year

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
