    Cons

    None thus far have had a great experience here.

    Pros

    Disproportionate salary and bonuses if you are in management. Get the "partners" to drink the Kool-Aid and you are set for life.

    Cons

    You are a target unless you make the right political alliances. "Leaders are guilty until proven innocent" is the message from HR. A lot of pressure drops off after 5 years because your ESOP is vested and home office loses the financial incentive to term you and take your retirement back.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Clean house across the entire company like you did in Clinton.

    I worked at Schreiber Foods full-time for more than 5 years

    Pros

    Great compensation, striving to be Number 1, rolling out Toyota Production System

    Cons

    Company is of religious ownership. It has a non-world view of life herself, in a business environment. This company spends too much time and money doing things as cheap as possible. It often chooses to remake junk equipment and spend many dollars on maintenance and down-time, rather have a good piece of equipment initially. Its religious core is mired in racism and manipulation of reality to perpetuate any given circumstance or point it chooses as superior (obvious smoke and mirrors.)

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Fully implement TPS

    Pros

    Very good paying job especially for Cache Valley

    Supervisors that were hired often very young with little to no experience and lacking credibility.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    I knew many with qualifications and degrees that couldn't get a sniff as far as a promotion because they were older than 25...

    Outstanding business model. Schreiber is an ESOP company. Excellent management training program.

    Must start on 3rd shift but it's a career path. Not just a job.

    I have been working at Schreiber Foods

    Pros

    rate of pay, hours able to work, most partners are easy going and have a lot of experience. many locations nation world wide. good retirement benefits

    Cons

    management not always open to hearing the ideas coming from partners that have been in positions for many years, when they are fairly new and only want to produce as much as possible

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    listen to your employees more and often. there are many things that can only be learned from experience, faster is not always better.

    Pros

    plenty of hours, shift work & overtime available, financial performance incentive, good benefits & communication in regards to plant performance i.e.: strengths & weaknesses

    Cons

    Training for operator positions extremely inconsistent, bilingual employees allowed to communicate in secondary languages in regards to company procedures and protocol leaving English only speaking partners feeling discriminated against

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Create a position in an effort to synchronize training and establish a predominant language protocol. Provide supervisors with advance leadership & communication skill training
