I worked at Seneca Foods full-time (More than 10 years)
The ability to earn extra money. The benefits were some of the best that I have ever had. Time off was easy to achieve during to off production months.
Little time off during the summer months. Had a hard time asking for extra time off because it would mean someone would have to work more hours before receiving their days off.
Advice to Management
Work on a different work schedule during the production months.
I applied through an employee referral. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at Seneca Foods (Modesto, CA).
I had to stay up all night in line to get an application. You need to ask when applications will be distributed. When I arrived at 12:00 am there was already a line to wait for 7:00 am. A chair and snacks will be helpful. No experience needed. Basically, if you get an application and you are drug free you will be hired. Overall it was and interesting experience and was worth the wait. After you turn I your application you can leave and you will be called back for your paid training.
No negotiations at all.
