    I worked at Country Pure Foods full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Friendly place to work, employees work hard to satisfy Management

    Cons

    I applied and was hired for a specific position 2nd day on the job, they deceided they wanted me to perform unrelated duties - out side my previous job focus. I was then scolded for not performing and eventually let go - they wanted a completely differnt type of skill set. "were sorry but we dont wany your skill set, we should have thought this thru better"

    Pros

    Nothing nothing nothing nothing nothing at all it will make you appreciate your time you spend with your family because you will work everyday 12 hrs a day 7 days a week

    Cons

    Management is top heavy this company runs 7 days a week always short handed its shocking how upper management can blatantly fail to do their job yet they still keep their job and in some instances are promoted or praised it's really very shocking

    Advice to Management

    Quit being self centered and closed minded

    I worked at Country Pure Foods full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    There's always work and overtime.

    Cons

    There's always too much turn around in management I had 4 maintenance managers and 3 plant managers in the time I was there. And Everytime a new manager would come I they wanted to do something different there was nothing structured..

    Advice to Management

    Not much to say because they don't keep managers long enough to make a difference...

    I have been working at Country Pure Foods full-time

    Pros

    Lots of overtime excluding June & July.Job security with union just don't point out on calling off work.

    Cons

    Upper management and some shift supervisors are a trip.They micro-manage everybody, union and non-union people. No respect for employees.Always looking for what you did wrong but never hold what upper management did wrong accountable.

    Advice to Management

    Develop a pm schedule for lines. We fix it when it breaks.This causes a lot of downtime ensuring 6/7 day work weeks.Also use your cameras for a purpose other than looking for employees doing something wrong,ex this line keeps having this same problem day after day,maybe we should look into this.Your employees have low moral because of the way you treat us.Only you can change this .

    Pros

    Lots of overtime
    Yea that's about it

    Cons

    Lots of overtime
    Management plays favorites

    Advice to Management

    If you going to ask for your employees to work 6/7 day work week (especially the 3rd shift) and the more problematic rooms (eco) you need to value them more and don't make them feel as if they will never live up to their coworkers. That room is a stressful environment!

    Management does not seem to care about advice.

    Pros

    Country Pure Foods is installing brand new high speeds lines. The have an excellent QA department which ensure safe consumable products. A new union contract. There is a new procedure which all, just hired in, operators that must learn the different production lines. Country Pure Foods is acquiring other companies for growth .They have their excellent V Blends, Frozen Products, and it looks like they are expanding their water cup line along with a coffee line. Toyota/Sapporro owns them. Very good pay. 401K that pays half of your basis . At Country Pure Foods you'll work with some of the hardest working people that you'll ever have the chance to experience .

    Cons

    As I said in the title , " A Company in the Midst of Transformation" . There are some issues with the production equipment , which results in down time. This puts pressure on the maintenance crew . While I was working for them , Country Pure Foods replaced parts, they also had outside consultants , technicians come in to resolve the issues, but the adjustments didn't seem to last long enough. So because of this , during their busy season, they supply for the schools too, there is a 7 day work work. I do believe the newly installed , and soon to be installed , high speed lines should help to resolve this issue .

    Advice to Management

    While I was working there we had a meeting . At the meeting an issue was brought up about Climate Control , for there isn't any. The problem is that Country Pure Foods has asked for the funding for Climate Control, but gets rejected . Keep pushing for that funding. Myself, I really didn't have a problem with management . They were patient enough with me to adjust to the learning curve , but I just couldn't get it . I think it had to do with some of the 12 hour work days along with the bus ride . I would get home at 9 at night and have to be up at 4 in the morning . My advice to anyone who reads this. If you get hired in, give this company two years, then you'll be happy with your wait.
