    I worked at Dawn Food Products full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    Close to home. Free donuts and pastrys. From bakerys, not from comany. Once was good company to work for. Ok pay. Lotta ot

    Cons

    The job is back breaking and will cripple you in the long run. They put more responisibility on regularly but same pay. Self serving managment who use company money and employes for personal chores. Relitives and friends of managment are treated better and given promotions and pay raises. They dont care about anyone but themselves.

    Advice to Management

    Remember its your workers who make your lavish paychecks and travel possible. Treat them better
