    Pros

    you get to go home after letting manager vent her miserable life on you

    Cons

    Wacked out supervisor yells at employees all the time does not treat employees well brings her home life to work, does not know anything about management, yet brags that she's the best needs to be fired and new management brought in that actually knows how to sanitize properly and get rid of the second supervisor that just stands around talking, I'm leaving company as this is the worst job I've ever had in my life, learn how to treat your employees and quit being lazy yourself and quit bringing your employees down

    Advice to Management

    Hire new management for sanitation dept look over urchels forming tubes and other machinery after sanitation leaves so your not putting moldy old cheese into our community

    I worked at Pacific Cheese (Less than a year)

    Pros

    I have none to offer. The only thing that would be a pro is that you learn about different kinds of Cheeses and the process in packaging them.

    Cons

    Vandalism to your vehicle if someone is angry with you could be a key sign of violent behavior

    Advice to Management

    Training program for associates on work ethics and Lean Principles

    I have been working at Pacific Cheese full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    QA department has decent wages. Never short on work hours. Middle management tries to help you and is friendly. The relationship between QA and Production is healthy; production leads and supervisors work with you as QA, minimal bickering. Benefits are average, upper management is ok. More vacation time for the first year than retail or casinos. This company recently achieved SQF 3 (a higher standard of Safe, Quality Food so companies that require this certification will become interested in this company now. It is certainly growing.)

    Cons

    If you don't want over-time, it is a bit hard to deal. Sometimes you have to put in either 6 days of 8.5-9 hours or 5 days of 10+ hours. Production associates have to start as temps who don't get paid very well and are expected to work heavy labor plus overtime. This causes high turnover for production associates in some areas.

    Advice to Management

    I sometimes wish work-life balance was a little higher on priorities, but I know American Corporations can't conceive of doing this because it won't help the bottom line. This would include things such as more vacation time (although this company provides more vacation time at the first year than any retail/casino I've worked for, but still nowhere near our European counterparts) and less overtime with a little more pay.
