    Pros

    The culture of Reser's is strongly aligned with its family-owned heritage which makes it a very fun place to work. Definitely feel part of a family here and have always been encouraged to put family first at work and at home. Significant growth in the past several years means there is lots of opportunities to get involved with decisions that would skip over you in larger corporations.

    Cons

    Just like at home, families have both strengths and weaknesses. A hands on approach at the executive level means that projects shift quickly based on hallway conversations. Significant growth = Growing pains without standard operating procedures.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Trust the folks you hire to do what you pay them for- it'll make your job easier!

    I have been working at Reser's full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    Reser's offers a semi-flexible schedule, and there is room to grow your own experience, especially if you take the initiative.

    Cons

    It has some real growing pains, still adapting to it's success and acquisitions over the years. The company is still dated in some ways.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Move forward, and become more progressive, break-down the 'good ol' boy's attitude' and address each department fairly.

    Positive Outlook

    I worked at Reser's full-time

    Pros

    Great benefits, potential to develop a lot of experience.

    Cons

    Large company dealing with 'small company' mentality, growing pains. There is a lot of tribal knowledge vs real manuals and job training. It's not the most progressive environment, and has 'boy's club' mentality.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    To be more aware of current environment, for success of company to grow and progress with the times.

    Neutral Outlook

    Pros

    Family-owned - and they still know what it is like to be a family place, although they're growing so it is becoming more "Corporate" than ever before.

    Cons

    As the company grows, their need to change their management structure and methodologies is falling behind the times. It is getting slower to make decisions and make changes, which is a strength of a smaller company.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Delegate and have faith.

    I have been working at Reser's full-time

    Pros

    -Room for improvement.
    -Ideas and opinions are heard, and company still runs/feels like a smaller company.
    -Very good health benefits
    -People are friendly.

    Cons

    Company grew quickly and they were not adequately prepared for the growth. Are resistant to hiring enough people to cover the increased workload. Processes are unorganized, lack proper communication, and technology is out of date and not utilized enough.

    They are also very stingy with holidays as well as vacation time.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Encourage new, innovative process improvements as well as technology.

    Former Employee - Anonymous Employee

    I worked at Reser's full-time

    Pros

    Excellent healthcare program, growing company, regular investment in facilities, loyal to long-time employees, willing to experiment with new products and marketing techniques, non-union

    Cons

    difficult to attract and retain good employees due to low wages, inadequate change management, poor communication of expectations to personnel at plant level, plant management expected to perform as a world-class organization with sub-par non-salaried employees and lacking the tools necessary to motivate employees, lack of technical support. Reser's went from a company that no one had heard of to a company that no one wants to work for in just a few months.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Reser's may have bitten off more than it can chew with its acquisition of Orval Kent out of bankruptcy, senior management expecting too much from plant management while not providing support, personnel, and communication necessary to succeed.
