    I worked at Pacific Natural Foods (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Co-workers were all very friendly, often times had potlucks.

    Cons

    Stressful, one mistake could be costly.

    Advice to Management

    Have better training. QA supervisors need to do the training, I was handed off to QA techs to train me and they didn't care enough to make sure I knew things correctly.

    Pros

    Good culture. They do a wonderful job with community involvement (within the company and out of it). The people that work there are friendly. Good pay rates.

    Cons

    This position is physically demanding due to working 12 hour shifts. Comprehensive training is lacking, especially on the graveyard shifts.

    Pros

    Great pay,12 hour shifts,4 on 3 off one week then 3 on 4 off. 4 hrs of vacation every two weeks.

    Cons

    Not really a downside I would say the dental plan sucks only pays for preventive 90 percent and 50 for all other.

    Advice to Management

    Company is great. The only thing i would change is get ventilation hood fans for powdwr room in bldg 17 other than that would say I really enjoy working there. Thanks for the job.

    Pros

    PFO is a good place to work for, good product, overall very competitive on the market of their product.

    Cons

    PFO need a plant manager that focus and dedicate time on the production floor.

    Advice to Management

    My advise ,,, to motivate their employee to build trust on their employee and to end casino night, have a barbecue on site instead..

    I worked at Pacific Natural Foods (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Great products. Company is committed to sustainability and animal welfare.

    Cons

    Owner is actively involved with product development. His projects can interfere with producing for customers. Many of the senior leaders don't seem to like employees very much. They are poor communicators.

    I worked at Pacific Natural Foods full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Good pay raises at review and decent wage. However, compared to the cost of living in Tualatin you don' have much left over. The long shifts you work give 3 to 4 days off a week. They don't mind if you're a slow worker.

    Cons

    Poorly maintaned equipment. Lack of care to fix safety problems. Those that work hardest don't get ahead while the laziest get ahead with more pay or promotions. Lot of people related to eachother or friends with management get more pay and or better shifts. Favortism in management. Unreasonable work expectations with what you're given to work with. Cold climate in buildings in the winter. Severe hot temps. in the summer along with having to wear coveralls over your clothes with poor air ventalation. Not flexiable about what shift you work or changing it.

    Advice to Management

    Changes need to be made.

    I worked at Pacific Natural Foods part-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Owner is so kind and always think about employees, upper level executives too helpful and try to make changes for good of employee. Benefits like health coverage is really attractive.

    Cons

    There is really no connection with Supervisors, upper level Executives and general employees, it's a real mass. Everybody like doing staff what ever they like, no decepline at all. General employees are not properly educated and not helpful at all. You will never hear anything from HR at all or even you call never find them. Lots of products are wasting for lack of knowledge. There should be staff and team leader proper communication, and seniors should be brief properly. Work atmosphere is really not up to date because of not professional employee.

    Advice to Management

    Recruit proper and educated people and train the supervisors how to deal with general employee. More connection with HR.
