    I have been working at John Sanfilippo & Son as an intern (Less than a year)

    Pros

    The best part about working for JBSS was the small office environment where you could see the senior leadership on a daily basis if you choose to.

    Cons

    The only downside of working for JBSS is that it is located in Elgin, IL which is to far to live in Chicago and work for so you have to live in the suburbs.

    I worked at John Sanfilippo & Son full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Keeps you on your feet and moving. Great introductory job if you’re looking to get into general warehousing, machine operating, etc.

    Cons

    Long hours. Depending on the person, you may fatigue quickly. Constant, repetitive actions for hours on end. Not much room for upward mobility with the company.

    Advice to Management

    I suggest that Supervisors implement some sort of duty cycle system; everyone rotates every hour to a different position on the line, lessening fatigue and balancing the work load.
