    ok

    Human Resources Assistant (Former Employee)
    Orestes, IN

    ProsGreat Salary if you live near the plants

    ConsFar away from anywhere
    only 10 vacation days a year
    Long hours during pack season
    forced to participate in party planning and had to drive up on the weekends, which is more than an hour commute...not realistic for those who don't live near the plan

    Advice to Senior Managementmore work/life balance/more vacation days

    Great benefits, but poor leadership.

    Anonymous Employee (Former Employee)

    ProsHealth benefits are second to no other central Indiana company. Some positions will permit employee creativity, but as rule most all work is very controlled and structured.

    ConsManagement leadership is often wish-washy. They are very slow to engage in new projects that vary from their historic comfort zone of operation. Worker safety is always touted as highly important, but the facts are only if it is basically free and does not interfere with production goals. This is not knock against CEO Reichart, but rather his underlings that often hide info from him.

    Advice to Senior ManagementMr. CEO you must please learn what is really happening around you at RG that will eventually lead to irreversible problems for both you and your company.

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company

    Limited advancement opportunities and below to average salaries.

    Manager (Former Employee)

    ProsFirst class medical and 401K benefits.
    Work can be interesting and sometimes fun.
    Your shift passes quickly because you stay very busy.
    You can buy Red Gold products discounted at cash sales.

    ConsBeware of trusting HR at their word. Get it in writing!
    Unless you just happen to fall into favor with the family there is limited opportunity for advancement.
    Salaried pay is skewed too low to drive from Indy or Fishers, but can be decent for locals.
    Long hours and limited days off during freshpack.

    Advice to Senior ManagementManagement must step forward out of the past and their "That's the way Red Gold has always done it." Be more accepting of new ideas from personnel.

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend
