    Pros

    I really enjoy working at Ready Pac - as they have a totally new leadership team - run by Tony S. He does a great job informing of all company information and connecting with all employees!

    Cons

    Ready Pac's fast pace and growth is not for everyone. This company is changing quickly and may not keep lower performing employees around. I have already seen several people leave - and it will make the company much better.

    Advice to Management

    Tony - please keep driving the engagement with all levels of the company. We are behind you and appreciate the transparency that you bring to Ready Pac

    Pros

    Ready Pac is a fast growing, dynamic organization that provides 'people the freedom to eat healthy' - something that is important to all of us.

    Cons

    Since joining Ready Pac almost a year ago, I have not looked back. I don't 'second guess' my decision to leave my prior employer at all.

    Advice to Management

    Keep it up! I am completely aligned with Ready Pac's core values of: Respect, Results Orientation, Bias For Action, Learning, and Fun.

    Pros

    Ready Pac is forward thinking company. Communication and culture are very positive. Upper level management are investing in their people and strive to continuously improve.

    Cons

    I don't anything negative to say about the way Ready Pac conducts business. I have confidence in all of the people I work with.

    Advice to Management

    Keep moving in your current direction. You are motivating your associates to be the best in fresh packaged food.

    Pros

    You are paid on time.... Plant Manager seems to care about the direction of the business.

    Cons

    The Management is stuck on implanting moles and snitches in key positions to keep track of what others are doing. HR is not consistent and may be related. Maintenance is clueless. Goals are set with no rhyme or reason.

    Advice to Management

    Realign, retrain, or reassign certain managers.

    Pros

    I think that the pay is decent. I like some of the hours that we get. I also like the people in charge.

    Cons

    The point system is out of date. Also, the upper staff gets confused. It holds us up. I think that they need to re-work.

    Advice to Management

    Put people where they need to be. If you see a stand-out, put him in a better position, even if it means that someone with more years on them might get upset. Why would one be in production if they cant produce?

    Pros

    company has been thru changes before and have remained successful despite of the disconnection between the executive team

    Cons

    too many chiefs / VPs wanting to just control .
    Changes aren't good when they are not helping the company succeed .

    Advice to Management

    Review your executive team . Review the Operations leader and ask yourself what has he brought to the table ? Answer : discrimination and hostile work environment . Review and bring in skilled people who are fair and consistent

    Pros

    More negatives than any positives here.

    Cons

    Where to begin? HR department is a disaster. Top management never comes down to production floor. People in charge at top with no degrees or prior experience. Lot of turnover too. No one stays here. The corporate office is in California. They never visit the plant to see the problems at this facility. I was terminated and still trying to figure out why.

    Advice to Management

    Overhaul Swedesboro HR management teams

    Pros

    New management
    New focus on associates and employee benefits
    Invigorated focus on fresh and healthy foods
    Sales and profits growing again (after year over year declines)

    Cons

    Company is in transition, so change creates anxiety
    New focus on accountability up and down chain of command, so it's hard to hide from responsibility and everyone is being asked to raise their level of performance
    Work within refrigerated facility can be challenging
    It takes time to turn business around and get benefits of turnaround distributed to everyone

    Advice to Management

    Stay the course and make benefits and successes available to all
