    I worked at Southern Tea / Harris Tea full-time (more than a year)

    Pros

    You get paid. If that's all you need and expect you will probably be OK.

    Cons

    Micro managing leadership team who uses a very coercive management style - "only one way to do things and you better do it my way" type style. Most staff there are miserable and hate their jobs but don't think they have other options. Leaders don't believe in having any type "fun" at work. Absolutely no flexibility in work schedules or how you do your job. I had a sick child at home, and even though I did work from home they still wanted to dock my pay. No extra effort is given - why would you when no one appreciates what you do? I stayed 2 years but that was 2 years too long. Plant is unionized and hourly employees only do as much as they have to do to keep their job. Be careful! Low pay and no opportunity.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Give some latitude to employees on how things are done. Show some appreciation. Be flexible. Compromise. Allow some fun at work.

    Pros

    It is conveniently located in western jersey in close distance to Rt 38 and the Philadelphia area.

    Cons

    There is absolutely no review of the tea bag lots. There is no inventory system in the warehouse where any customer can come in and see the location of their stock. there is no means of handling cutomer complaints and recalls without a batch record

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    The competition does everything correct in using batch records of tea bag lots and not using individual papers for each component. the competition know where customer stock is located with an effective computized inventory system
