    I have been working at Kraft Heinz Company full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Great people, job is relatively easy. Great benefits. Plenty of OT to go around.

    Cons

    Poorly maintained machines, work life balance isn't good. They don't appreciate their employees.

    Advice to Management

    Upgrades to machines, make your workers feel appreciated and acknowledge that we do our best at what we are doing. A simple thank you to the people on the floor, especially those of us who work 12 hours everyday.

    I worked at Kraft Heinz Company full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    Was a bery good company to work for. Was good at listening to employee and trying to make things work through communication.

    Cons

    Training was not the best. They would show you how to do something then would be like after 10 minutes you are on your own now.

    Advice to Management

    Listen to the employee. If something is needed to make it more ergonomically safe to work. Need to work to make it that way. Check for safety, are saftey shoes needed, what about bearing ptotection. Management should always think of the saftey oc their employees.

    Pros

    Dream come true, that is, until you get settled in.

    Company car, insurance paid for, gas card - until they forgot to take the $73 per pay check out of your check and then take large lump sums out of your paycheck until they catch up for THEIR mistake. Gas card worked, then didn't work, then worked again. Fleet team can't get it together.

    iPad - NEW TECHNOLOGY! Until the iPad decides to not work or their apps stop working or faulty information is sent to HQ and then you're made to look like you're not actually doing your job when you are.

    AMAZING PTO! Great PTO until you realize the PTO is pro-rated and if you use more than the allotment, you owe them money (if you decide to part ways beforehand).

    Work/Life Balance - OR SO THEY SAY. If you have a great boss who understands LIFE then you're fine. HQ expects you to be in your first store at 6:30 and finish 3-4 stores per day. If you don't hit all stores in 1 week, it's marked against you.

    Great benefits - Hope you're not married or have kids.

    Constant communication between management and lower level employees! Expect to have conference calls every day that take up your mornings, which, in turn, will make you miss time in your stores and then, will push back your entire day, the e-mails from the CRM team that completely take up your inbox, which will give you anxiety about your workday ahead of you, and the reports. WHO DOESN'T LOVE REPORTING? Constant reporting, because, this job is not "sales," it's reporting and merchandising.

    Sign on bonuses! Oh.. we're not supposed to talk about those. Most people got them, a lot didn't. I'm glad I didn't.

    Phone allowance - $40 per paycheck. Company couldn't get the payment together. After 2 months, finally received the allowance.

    Bonuses - Easy to achieve at first. Company realized this, then made the metrics harder and less obtainable, so they don't have to pay their employees.

    Cons

    Beat out of my bonus that I hustled to get.
    Monthly meetings that ruin 1 Thursday a month for you. Have fun sitting in traffic.

    Is there a "check all" box?

    Advice to Management

    Stop portraying this job as a sales job. It is analytical reporting. HIRE REPORTERS or merchandisers, not "salespeople." HQ can easily obtain this information at the drop of a hat, but they'll hire people, waste their time, and then wonder why we're unsatisfied with our jobs. If I wanted to be a merchandiser, I would've applied to a merchandising role. GET BETTER RECRUITERS, they're a bunch of liars. Stop saying there's advancement and meritocracy when hiring/promotions go to Brazilians and outside applicants. People who are working extremely hard for you, should be promoted. No one wants to waste their time doing your reports that someone in HQ could easily do. Lastly, from Chicago to the Northeast, there is a time difference. FYI when having conference calls at 5:30pm.

    Advice to Management

    listen to the request of your employees for training and advancement opportunities.
    Restructure vacation and time off for employees especially maintenance workers.
    Create a better work environment by communicating the plans and processes of the actions to the employees.
    Get to know all your employees even on the off shifts.
