    Pros

    Pacific Foods, a growing and successful company, works hard to provide competitive benefits and compensation to their employees. There is a strong effort in all departments to promote from within and many of the employees have worked their way from the bottom.

    Cons

    The company has it's growing pains, but nothing is truly abysmal about the company. I would say the greatest area to improve is their employee involvement and rewards program.

    I worked at Pacific Natural Foods part-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    Owner is so kind and always think about employees, upper level executives too helpful and try to make changes for good of employee. Benefits like health coverage is really attractive.

    Cons

    There is really no connection with Supervisors, upper level Executives and general employees, it's a real mass. Everybody like doing staff what ever they like, no decepline at all. General employees are not properly educated and not helpful at all. You will never hear anything from HR at all or even you call never find them. Lots of products are wasting for lack of knowledge. There should be staff and team leader proper communication, and seniors should be brief properly. Work atmosphere is really not up to date because of not professional employee.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Recruit proper and educated people and train the supervisors how to deal with general employee. More connection with HR.

    Pros

    Practice what they preach in sustainablf food production with quality ingredients. Great employee discounts on company brand foods, decent pay and diverse schedules.

    Cons

    long hours, many positions are in a warehouse environment and not all employees believe in company values.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Hourly pay should be reflective of each employees education, even within the same position. Employees with more education should receive higher pay than their counterparts that lack the equivalent accomplishment.

    Pros

    Decent benefits, large amounts of overtime and rotating schedule allowed for a bit of free time each week.

    Cons

    Very high turnover lead to high stress environment. Management was rarely seen unless there was a problem. Lack of communcation between levels of management lead to confusion and stress.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Make more of a presense and follow up with suggestions.
