    Pros

    Good pay raises at review and decent wage. However, compared to the cost of living in Tualatin you don' have much left over. The long shifts you work give 3 to 4 days off a week. They don't mind if you're a slow worker.

    Cons

    Poorly maintaned equipment. Lack of care to fix safety problems. Those that work hardest don't get ahead while the laziest get ahead with more pay or promotions. Lot of people related to eachother or friends with management get more pay and or better shifts. Favortism in management. Unreasonable work expectations with what you're given to work with. Cold climate in buildings in the winter. Severe hot temps. in the summer along with having to wear coveralls over your clothes with poor air ventalation. Not flexiable about what shift you work or changing it.

    Advice to Management

    Changes need to be made.

    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 Management

    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.

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

    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 Management

    Make more of a presense and follow up with suggestions.
