    Negative Outlook
    Disapproves of CEO

    Pros

    Good benifits,weekends off,easy to get along with other employees

    Cons

    You'll work more than what you'll get payed, 35 cents a year as a raise, managers don't speak English they get pushed around by the main office. Everybody wants to kiss butt to the management of the company to try to get a better position.

    Advice to Management

    Threat your workers better they are what makes the brand name instead of being selfish and pocket all the winnings.

    I have been working at Farmer John full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Lots of overtime if you like that, decent medical, vision, dental benefits.

    Cons

    It appears that operations and engineering departments are pitted against one another. They blame us for everything. I just don't get how this company functions on a daily basis with a work force that sometimes makes you wonder how they got their pants on in the morning. You need a lot of patience and rhino like skin to get up everyday and come here to work....

    Advice to Management

    Fire everyone and start over....
