    I worked at High Liner Foods full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    The Pay is decent for the Warehouse. Special events during holidays, games and prizes

    I have been working at High Liner Foods full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    I have worked for the company for 2 years as a Production Associate and HLF Newport News is a fun place to work. New management has made good changes for the hourly people and HR is always planning fun events for us throughout the year. I love my job!

    Cons

    The pay is laid out for you on a scale so you know how to advance and what pay you will get in the position you are in so there are no surprises. But higher pay is always good so that would help. I don't really have anything else to say that's bad about the company.

    Advice to Management

    Need some more training for new people coming into Production.

    Pros

    Decent Pay, A/C in the summer

    Cons

    Lots of weekends with NO compensation. No heat in the winter, prepare to freeze.

    Advice to Management

    People are not machines. Working the staff 24/7 for 9 months out of the year it unacceptable.
