I have been working at Pet Food Experts full-time (More than a year)
Medical benefits are out of this world. Even though it's "behind the scenes," it shows they truly care. The company basically pays half or even more than half of your deductible just for being an employee here! The culture is also very laid back - everyone is here to do their job but not take things too seriously. There is also room to grow. If you put the effort in, it does get noticed.
PTO could be better and I wish we could bring our pets to work! Also a little behind the times on pay, but getting there.
Advice to Management
Keep the family-oriented culture going because it's rare to find these days! They do a great job NOT making it feel corporate.
I applied through an employee referral. The process took 3 days. I interviewed at Pet Food Experts (Cumberland, RI).
Was hired through a Temp Agency. When I visited the facility the first time I was shown around the warehouse, was introduced to my would-be supervisor and was explained what was expected of me.
They mentioned stories about how some of the employees advanced within the company and indicated they provided training for the equipment required for the job.
