    Pros

    You will be able to get alot of overtime

    Cons

    You self teach your self alot of stuff cause it's alot of people who will not teach you nothing..

    Advice to Management

    You need to promote within the company instead of always bring people from the outside that make more then other then we have to teach them all over again...and you have high turnover rate..pay more the people will stay

    I have been working at Fresh Express full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    I enjoyed working with everyone that was outside of management.

    Cons

    A Brazilian company bought the company out a few years ago. They have replaced most of the managers with their people who don't understand how to run a salad company. There are always hiccups, staff is that very poorly, and there is no employee moral so turnover is ridiculously high.

    Advice to Management

    Learn to work with your staff. If you treat your staff well, they will do what they can to help you and your business.

    The product is in demand.

    The ownership is terrible, the leadership has no clue, nobody is told anything, you have zero authority and they hire those that are willing to give up their soul.

    Ask yourself if this is how you would want to be treated.

      Cons

      Pay is not that good, you work 9 to 12 hours a day, 6 days a week or 7 days a week for 2 to 3 weeks.. no days off.Management don't care about your family life or medical appointments. If you do have to leave work or come into work late Supervisors want to see a paper from doctor (not for all employees). Supervisors yell and talk smart to you. Treat you like your a 3rd class person. To use your PTO you have to schedule...

      Advice to Management

      Work along the employees for a shift not just a few minutes. Come in on Saturdays and Sundays work the shift not show up for a hour or two then go back home to your family. Show you care not a smile and Hello in the hall in passing. Invest in upgrades and parts to fix the machines right. Pay the employees, value them since the are the front line.
