    It's not too stressful and everyone is very nice.

    Pros

    Way more experience and freedoms than you would get anywhere else. Not many levels for approval and red tape, as you have elsewhere. Diverse brand portfolio and fun products to work on.

    Heavy workload, at times, depending on time of year.

    I worked at J & J Snack Foods full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    Great company to work for. Was given many opportunities in my career there. For the first 16 years very supportive. Still love the company, but had to leave due to some unfair treatment in 17th year.

    Cons

    Some upper level management are only out for themselves. When asked for help needed to run facility, answer was always no. After leaving everything I asked to put in place was done. Need to trust managers more. Work very long hours 7 days a week including when on vacation. But wasn't that bad.

    Advice to Management

    Need to seriously look at some executive level managers. Only out for their gain and don't take responsibility for bad decisions. Not always truthful. Miss the company and would love to still be there, but can't function under conditions.

    Pros

    I currently work for our Moscow Mills facility and am new to my position. Knowing the company history and seeing the successes is amazing. I am very excited about the direction "The Old Cookie Factory " is headed. We have some very strong managers and a core workforce who loves what they do.

    Cons

    Org. Chart needs updated. There are too many chiefs making changes not easy to implement.

    Advice to Management

    Empower your mid-level staff to make decisions without needing 3 additional managers approval.
