    Pros

    Worked here for 4+ years and absolutely loved it. I worked with a great team and for the best manager ever.

    Nothing really bad to say about this company. I Just received a good offer closer to home that my husband wanted me to take.

    Advice to Management

    Maybe try a little harder to keep your employees. Good ones are hard to come by.

    I have been working at Hilmar Cheese Company full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Never had a layoff and company continues to grow.

    Very political, not what you know more who you know. Replaces experienced team members with lower salary new employees. No family life or life balance.

    Advice to Management

    Appreciate the team members you have and treat them well, the company will be better for the experienced gained and shared. Look at team members for what they bring to the table and try to retain the quality and pay more for the experience the team member brings to the table.

    Pros

    Insurance? IF you can call a self insured policy that barely has any in network providers insurance.

    Cons

    Pretty much the whole company is corrupt and will do anything to cover issues with safety and food safety violations. Depending on the Department you work in is how the Racial Discrimination is set up due to who is in the management positions. They allow sexual discrimination also so be wary on that front. If you do report any violations in for any of the above they will try to make your life hell, if you wont quit they fall back onto stating you have a bad attitude and terminate you.

    Advice to Management

    None, Company Is Worthless
