    Pros

    - Opportunities for advancement and upward mobility from within
    - Decent benefits and impressive retirement plan (you become a "partner" with the company by working for them)
    - Passion and curiosity are rewarded and appreciated
    - Management appears to be respectful and at the very least gives lip service to company ethics
    - Probably a good place to work if you "fit in"

    Cons

    - Work life balance (or lack thereof) favors long work days; expect OT at every level of employment
    - Individuality does not appear to be valued; especially if you are in management, you'll be expected to be "just like them" right down to the uniform. Company is slightly "cultish" in this regard (you'll know what I mean if you work there)

    Advice to Management

    Ease up on the mandatory over time. It's just cheese.

    I had a fairly positive experience as a Team Advisor.

    Pros

    Do to what seems to be, in my opinion, a high attrition rate, advancement opportunities were abundant. All you have to do is be decent at your job and stick around for about 2-3 years before being promoted. It was also fairly easy to move laterally within the company. You got discounted cheese at the weekly sales. HR checks on your development about once/month. There are "overtime" opportunities for Team Advisors. Great 401k match if you stick around for 3 years (so you are vested).

    Cons

    401k contributions do not kick in until you have been at the company for 3 years. Schreiber matches your contributions until the 3 year mark with company stock, but you don't get it in your account, so you miss out on compounded growth. Salary is not competitive at all, but HR will try to sell you a "Total Compensation" value that takes into account the value of your other benefits. You will be shown a graph showing stock price over time with substantial growth. A great deal of that growth in valuation of the company is due to a change in the consultant firm Schreiber uses to value the company. It's obvious on the graph which year that change occurred.

    With the exception of Schreiber's headquarters in Green Bay, all other domestic facilities were about 1.5 hours away from a major metropolitan area. This is of importance if you are used to a more urban environment. I wouldn't say Schreiber is a diverse company; most of the leadership is white and male. If you start as a Team Advisor (production manager) you must start working on an off-shift (graveyard or late evening). You cannot work a normal 9-5 shift until you are promoted to interim or full-time Team Leader (department manager). Also, in order to be successful and stay atop of your duties you must expect to put in 10 hours/day. Lunches are short if you're in management, as problems that arise on the floor quickly require your attention.

    Schreiber puts new employees into a development program. This program consists of a binder with tasks you must complete in order to advance to certain levels. There is very limited formal training, and those training events are open to all salaried employees, so I wouldn't say it is specifically for the program. On the whole you are in charge of your development.

    The "overtime" is a sum that is earned for every 8 hour shift a Team Advisor works on the weekend. You should expect to work at least 4 weekends out of a quarter. If you value your weekend time and choose not to play ball you will have trouble with advancement. I've heard of Team Advisors that were terminated or quit before quarter-end you forfeit this money and are not paid for your time.

    Advice to Management

    Frequent changes to the Operations Incentive Plan (sort of like profit sharing) have led to confusion and disillusionment on the production floor. It seems the OIP doesn't reflect real plant financials, and employees feel they are being deprived of the bonuses they earned. More attention needs to be placed on safety and training. Employees voices should carry more weight when they share their safety concerns.

    Cons

    Title says everything..
    Lots of micromanagement, they keep poking you on what you are doing every hour and you been telling that " we are paying you..so do whatever we ask to do"

    Advice to Management

    Change your attitude and mindset instead telling others to "revisit your attitude"

    Pros

    The culture at Schreiber Foods is like no other. Schreiber focuses on building, strengthening and maintaining strong relationships internally and externally. This company is constantly improving, growing, and looking for improvement. Schreiber has exceeded my expectations since day one from the welcoming and motivational environment to the help and support from the partners. Schreiber also encourages internal movement.

    Cons

    I have not had any difficulties within the organization and had not had any issues. Since Schreiber is privately owned, each partner has a lot of responsibilities but it's worth it and Schreiber recognizes you for your accomplishments.

    Advice to Management

    Keep high expectations of partners and goals to continue to succeed internally and externally.
