    Pros

    Partners at Schreiber take a lot of pride in being owners of the company. Culture is strong. Lots of visibility from senior leaders to hourly partners.

    Cons

    Too many company initiatives being deployed simultaneously, resources are sometimes spread too thin.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Reduce number of corporate initiatives as most have similar goals anyway, but multiple departments are all trying to work on the same "problems".

    Former Employee - Partner in Shippensburg, PA

    I worked at Schreiber Foods part-time (more than an year)

    Pros

    The company promotes internal hires and looks to keep you working there if you're performing your job well.
    The majority of employees are very personable and friendly, and the culture is not cut-throat.

    Cons

    Work-life balance is difficult due to the plant running overnight. Salaried employees are usually on-call on a rotating basis meaning you may have to work overnight a couple nights a week during your assigned time.
    Financial controls are still lacking; there is a lot of room to cut costs by improving efficiency.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Focus on fixing smaller problems first before implementing larger changes.

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

    Pros

    Pay is ok vs cost of living A job that requires little or no thought(probably a con). Plenty of opportunities to laugh at people.

    Cons

    Little to no upward mobility unless you took on student loans. Managers not having to be hired on merit generates a lot of unfounded egos and arrogance. Over complicated inventory system in place enables people to look down upon others without knowledge of computers. You will be talked down upon, albeit in a positive way, by people that are completely inept and make a living talking in circles and keeping their heads buried in the sand. The company aims for a 1:1 ratio of managers to workers, which goes to show the quality of leadership.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    What kind of person goes to college to work at a processed cheese factory? Hopefully y'all won't write this off as just another naysayer. But you will.

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

    Pros

    Clean safe work with good pay. I have enjoyed my time there for the most part for the 6 years I have been there. There are opportunities for advancement if you are look for them.

    Cons

    The come up sort on cross train on lines. There is to many rules that let partners say that is not my job so I'm not doing it. This hurts us a lot and makes 2 or 3 people pick up the slack.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    We need more partners to cross train and also tougher on attends. We have to many people that miss a lot and play games with attends so we and short handed. It take to long fire them. there are partners that have had at least 2 or 3 group two for attends over last 3 year that just show up enough to keep there job and they know right when a day comes off.
