I worked at Dairy Farmers of America full-time (More than 10 years)
Great business. I really liked working for the dairy farmers. Opportunities to visit council offices around the country. I loved working at DFA.
Departmental management. Upper management was good. CIO is distant and not a people person. He has contempt for employees. Prefers foreign born consultants. Before he came DFA was a great place to be. I made a lot of friends there.
Advice to Management
Care about the people who work for you. Not the consultants.
I applied online. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Dairy Farmers of America (Syracuse, NY).
Fun people to talk to, informative about the Cooperative. Not all management was clear on the duties of the position. Interview process is long and exhausting. Shows that they possibly cannot make decisions in a quick manner.
