    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Ask you leaders what good leadership looks like to them. Follow up by asking them what bad leadership looks like to them. Then look at the leadership qualities of those leaders and see if they can identify which one they are.

    Pros

    Privately owned instead of corporation. Great people to work for. Owners are great and actually make it a point to meet with you. Name brand in the dairy business. Good starting pay and benefits. Freedom to do your job.

    Cons

    Technology is slow in growing. Needs to get on pace to challenge Sysco. Lots of driving but hey it's sales. Need better support inside for sales force.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Stop worrying about the overhead and build a product line.

    I worked at Shamrock Foods

    Pros

    Honestly, the best reason to work here is the customers. Shamrock has attracted some of the best and most faithful customers.

    Cons

    It is difficult to identify positives....the company has changed so much in recent years. They always promoted themselves as treating their own as family and customers as friends but this is not true any longer. They simply have no regard for their employees and their families, they take advantage of their customers, and have lost sight of what made them successful in the first place. As they go through their present growing pains, I would look elsewhere for that stable, satisfying career you desire.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    I am not even sure I have any advice for the upper management at Shamrock as I believe the present developing culture-one of dissatisfaction, insecurity and oppression is one they desire. I think the only people above that would care are the owners, the McClelland Family. These wonderful people would be disturbed to hear how the direction the company is going is affecting the employees, their families and their customers.

    Pros

    Pay was good. A lot of independent work (if you like that). Your co-workers are nice.

    Cons

    Supervisor was awful. They made the job immature. Hard to get breaks on long shifts.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Listen to your employees, HR.

    Pros

    Company Give time off when you need it without much issue. The supervisor Tony Capello is easy to work for.

    Cons

    Equipment is old and barely hanging on in some parts of the plant. There are rarely enough parts and the parts they do have do not cover a lot of the equipment that can bring the facility to a grinding halt.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Get it together. The manager has no managing skills that are worth mentioning.

    Pros

    Great people to work with and work for. Seem to treat everyone fairly and value longevity and experience over the young and inexpensive.

    Cons

    Can be long hours, systems really aren't up to par with today's technology, but they seem to be working on it.

    I worked at Shamrock Foods full-time (less than a year)

    Pros

    Never any management around to micro manage.

    Cons

    So called "specialists" were mainly clueless about product specifications. Drivers did not work as a team, and did not care about the customers. Lost several accounts due to driver not adhering to delivery windows. No training, poor leadership, extreme incompetence in every department from HR to warehouse. When you are accustomed to working for an excellent company, and then work for Shamrock, you will be very disappointed,

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Get it together in New Mexico! You might have it going on in Arizona, but you have a lot of work to do in other areas.

    Pros

    Free Lunch Once A Month

    Cons

    Everything else that truly matters

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Stop bullying people who are trying to help you identify bad business practices. Threatening legal action for uncovering bad practices and proposing solutions makes one wonder if these practices are intended and even illegal. Do not terminate employees without telling them and then threaten them with legal violations for "disclosure of confidential material" when they attempt to return work and property they take home. Please stop being so paranoid! Trust and Mutual Respect can be achieved without holding your employees under duress, without threat of penalty at law. Just because you terminate someone does not mean they are out to get you and that you have to get them before they get you.
