    Pros

    Good Pay, friendly co-workers who treat each other as family

    Cons

    Local Management bully and threaten hourly and salaried workers. Local HR covers their managers behavior no matter how bad. HR trolls company ratings that are negative to try to keep the word from getting out.

    Advice to Management

    Learn to treat workers with respect before corporate gets wise and sends you on your way. Once corporate figures out why it is so hard to retain good help and what is truly causing the attrition is not the hours or schedule, it is local management and HR who enables their behavior at all costs.

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

    Pros

    Pay is good but that is all

    Cons

    Supervisor only help out theirs friends.Bad cheese is being made because red hats and supervisors take a lot of long breaks.Freezer operators take hour lunches and at least 4 to 5 half hours breaks.These issues are not fixed because of who they know and as long as it doesn’t affect upper management nothing will get fixed.Pay is good but if you’re not valued at all then it’s not worth working there.red hats can falsify documents and forge signatures and nothing happens to them and also the lockout tag out rule does not apply no everybody so if your well liked or have a friend that happens to be related to upper management you can’t get fired much less get a write up.

    Advice to Management

    people will continue to leave as long as you do nothing.Especially the people that have been there for a long time and don’t like how things are being run now.Everyone should be treated equally regardless of who they know,go out with or are friends with.Corporate needs to fix this otherwise the fort Morgan plant won’t do anything because they will protect their own.
