    Pros

    Great place to learn about tomato processing. Will offer overtime to both hourly and salaried individuals.

    Cons

    No work life balance. Will essentially live at plant. Is family owned, and the owners tend to micromanage. This leads to things getting swept under the rug and high turn over leads to constant attempt to reinvent the wheel.

    I worked at Red Gold full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Great product. Great people. Family owned company. I enjoyed working for them and they valued my skills and compensated nicely for it.

    Cons

    Recent change in management. Growth is challenging in certain departments. Compensation in certain departments is below norm. Communication is lacking.

    Advice to Management

    Value your employees and compensate them accordingly.

    I worked at Red Gold part-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Most employees are very friendly and genuine. The small town feel seeps into the company, which is nice. The company is stable, as tomatoes will always be necessary. Many chances for advancement. Random lunch potlucks are awesome.

    Cons

    Very traditional company that is somewhat resistant to change. Since it's a family-owned business, family members in the company and those who are closest to them seem to get preferential treatment. HR rules are very strict (dress code, time keeping, what you can have in your cubicle/office, etc.).

    Advice to Management

    Be more open to change, whether that be old processes, adding more positions to growing departments, etc. Some senior managers do not have good reputations with the hourly employees.

    I have been working at Red Gold full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Red Gold is a class act company that gives very good benefits and really care about fellow co workers. It maybe the most comfortable company i have worked for.

    Cons

    Pay. If you're looking for a big check every week this is not the place.

    Advice to Management

    this is a top notch company and i love working here but the down side as a driver here is the inconsistency of pay. Benefits I understand is a big part of drivers pay. I don't think they are far from keeping every single driver that comes to work for RG. start the pay at .40 and no driver will make less then 750.00 gross a week (as long as that driver is working 5 days a week.) If you add great pay to the already fantastic benefits. there would be no turn over.
