    Former Employee - Assembly Line Worker in Smithfield, UT

    I worked at Schreiber Foods full-time (less than an year)

    Pros

    I considered the pay-rate to be good. There were consistent shift hours and often times overtime was available. They also gave us a discount on the product, which was significant. HR was great, and felt they cared about my needs. I enjoyed some of my coworkers.

    Cons

    There seemed to be a lot of gossiping and a few threatening co-workers. The commute to the plant is long, but they have a good parking lot. The smell of the plant. Cheese stinks.

    Pros

    Great pay and partner driven governing system. I appreciate the practice of seniority.

    Cons

    Benefits and bonuses have only gotten worse over the last 7 years.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Please reconsider policy on advancement opportunities for partners that do not have a college degree. Your missing out on a lot of potential.

    Cons

    None thus far have had a great experience here.

    I have been working at Schreiber Foods full-time (more than 5 years)

    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.

    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

    Cons

    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...

    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.
