    I worked at Just Born full-time for more than 10 years

    Pros

    Beautiful office environment, training opportunities abound, quality products, great co-workers, good pay and benefits, very community-focused

    Cons

    Ownership is top-notch but leadership appointments are questionable. The amount of management positions is disproportionate to the number of total employees so advancement and development opportunities are limited.

    Advice to Management

    Continue to teach employees the value of being community-minded, trim the fat

    I worked at Just Born full-time

    Pros

    Free candy nice city Eco friendly great production workers great office workers

    Cons

    There are too many to list but mainly the workplace discrimination, harassment, retaliation and double standards that are spearheaded by the HR department and filtered down throughout the company. The 3 owners are aware of the issue but hold no power, respect or authority to implement change. Sneaky sexiest and racist behavior that warrants investigating from outside of Bethlehem.

    I have been working at Just Born full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    Starting pay is amazing. Location convience. Schedule is good.

    Cons

    You name it. CEO's, management, associates. Unproffessional individuals, inconsistancy, rules change every second and with every person, no raises, favoritism, incompetent workers, incompetent office personnel. Just know that when you sign on to this company your signing onto nothing but head aches. Ever since the Borns handed this company over this place has went down hill. Horrible place to work. But hey it's a... pay check.

    I have been working at Just Born full-time

    Pros

    Great starting rate. Most especially for the minimal skill level required. Relative to the work, svetyone is overpaid for what they do. Because its a union shop, the laziest of you will still earn a very good wage.

    Cons

    Everything else other than the starting wage is a con. EVERYTHING! The company clsims to be family owned, family oriented. The youngest of the family ownership wsnt nothing to do with it. And the employees are treated like crap! Unappreciated for the most part. No insentives of any value. Crap PTO policy. Most all management are Hippocratic puppets for the company

    Advice to Management

    It would be pointless to offer advice to persons with no real power to effect change. Its the blimf leading the blind.

    I have been working at Just Born full-time for less than a year

    Pros

    Excellent pay, good benefits, fairly simple work, pleasant (for the most part) co-workers.

    Cons

    Currently lots of animosity due to lawsuits between union and company. Turnover is on the rise due to this tension.

    Advice to Management

    Instill a culture of communication. Many issues arise simply because people are unwilling to share information with each other. This includes from shift to shift and from management to production.
