    I have been working at Schreiber Foods full-time (more than 10 years)

    Pros

    Schreiber has a family work environment with competitive pay, but the retirment package and the sense of ownership puts Schiebers above most companies. They do expect you to go to work to work so if that not your deal then this is not the company for you.

    Cons

    Most team advisors are fresh out of college or have not been managing partners very long so they are in thier learning stages. If you Dont have college education there is a top end with no advancment into leadership.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    more advancment oppertunities within hourly partners who show great leadership skills.

    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.

    I have been working at Schreiber Foods as an intern (more than an year)

    Pros

    Great personal growth experiences. Want you to learn, excel personally, academically, and within the work environment. Willing to give you as much work and control over the work as you are capable of. Flexible environment.

    Cons

    Not many cons. Not allowed to work overtime in certain intern positions. Although they really do try to hire interns after college, there are not always relatable positions available.

    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.

    Pros

    Great benefits, employee owned, good money, and flexible schedule.

    Cons

    It's a feel good place with little corrective action towards the ones who lack motovation and will to work. Management is close minded to the partners with ideas to better the facility or process improvement.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Open your ears and minds to what others have to say, just because it wasn't your idea doesn't mean its a bad idea.

    Pros

    Good pay decent insurance on site nurse

    Cons

    If you are not a part of the office "in crowd" that means you are out. I went to HR about a personal problem I was having. Before I left I asked that this issue remain confidential between me and the HR employee and she said "of course and that goes without saying" 3 months later a close friend of a production TA who works as a machine operator told a mutual friend of ours who does not work a SFI everything I said at the meeting which was embarrassing.......They can make your life hell. I spent many of evenings driving home in tears after 10 hour shifts but
    having punched out after 8. The "in crowd" ultimately decide what duties they and their DEPT will perform and pass the more challenging duties on to partners who they look down on.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    A lot of TA's and TL's may under estimate today's technology and the power of social media. Not just at SFI but many "bosses" especially the ones who have unconditional backing may decide they had a bad weekend and have already decided they will be taking it out on someone. But if that someone also had a bad weekend and decided enough is enough a simple resignation will be the least of your problems. In this economy where you may not able to get another job in a month may dedicate their next several months or more looking for revenge. Train your new TA's early to get over the power trip and may feel like they want to display at some point.

    Pros

    Good pay at the plants. Took much care with employees, when closing down one of the plants. Everyone knew nearly a year in advance and was given the opportunity for training classes.

    Cons

    Many leaders fresh out of college with no experience.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Working at the plants are a lot of day-in day-out hard work. Plan to move around or to Green Bay, WI.
