    Great place to work. Feels like a home away from home.

    Pros

    Friendly environment, work-life balance is great, good starting point to a career.

    Cons

    Not many resources available for training, networking and education. You're on your own if you want to further your knowledge.

    If you thrive in an environment of fear of fear, this is the place for you.

    I worked at Newly Weds Foods full-time (more than 10 years)

    Pros

    Some of the best co-workers I ever had. Pretty laid back about time off. Good company match investment program.

    Cons

    Most people work in a constant state of fear of the owner. Very few people will stand up to or disagree with him. This causes most people to be fearful of making decisions. This also causes a lot of people to play the blame game. Watch out for buses and knives coming at your back. Pay is way below average. This is a company that has grown a lot over the last 10 years but in many ways is still run like a small company.

    I have been working at Newly Weds Foods full-time (less than an year)

    Pros

    good insurance, my co-workers are great. great location.

    Cons

    work schedule always changing, not being able to plan your weekend ahead of time. having to put in for a vacation day to insure a weekend off.no 401k match. very low pay for the area.no room for employee advancement .always working on your days off. not family oriented. very,very under staffed. management treats employees like we are just slaves, not people.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Quit lying to Charles before you get caught, quit having us employees lie for you. treat your employees with respect, we are the ones that can make you look good or bad. a mad employee is a bad employee. listen to your employees, they are the ones that do the job every day and have been for years and know the best way, safest way, and fastest way of doing the job, just because you do it a certain way in other places don't mean it will work here. this plant is way different than the others. please listen before things get worse than they already are.
