    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

    good benefits
    pay is alright
    they do try and relieve some of the tension from time to time with some sort of event. cookout or icecream etc

    Cons

    zero work/life balance, you WILL spend most of your time working. if you have a family and you work here don't plan on seeing them. management is getting better but is still pretty unprofessional.

    Decent Pay, A/C in the summer

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

    Top down organization matrix. On a select few people are recognized when lots of others work very hard to make organization profitable.

    companies encourage their employees and job candidates to share honest reviews. Because of the diversity of our community, it's possible that something could be bad

    I worked at High Liner Foods full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    The pay, The benefits

    Cons

    1) The location in Portsmouth NH is nothing but a big high school.
    2) If you are not friends with anyone and you are NEW and different"expect to be pushed out..
    3) The management sucks
    , They are all buddy buddy and take up for each other, they dont do Anything REAL managers should do..
    4) Less yapping of the gums, more work needs to be done. The CUSTOMER SERVICE department is so judgemental and gossips all day long.. They even curse up a storm when on the phone with anybody!! They complain all day everyday about their jobs..
    5) The managers are just as ANNOYING and unprofessional as the people under them
    6) They are spiteful and sneaky.. Watch your back.
    7) I put in my 2weeks because that job really sucks, it was a stuggle trying to get through the work week, and I was only their for 3months.
    8) My last check was half of what it should have been, so they are going to hear it from me with that also..
    9) If you speak your mind, prepared to have your job threatened

    Advice to Management

    Be more like an ADULT and LESS like children, treat ALL people equally, and break the fake friend bond you have with everyone else.. Stop taking sides and listen more instead of running your mouth... This is for the Portsmouth NH location, Customer Service Department..

    THE CEO NEEDS TO MAKE BIG CHANGES AND STOP FIRING ALL THS LITTLE PEOPLE.. Its the people in management that should go.. They will run that company to the ground..

    I DO NOT RECOMMEND THIS JOB. Way to many bad reviews to be lies.
