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

    Pros

    Coworkers are helpful . Senior Operator was professional. The 12 hour shift is nice.

    Cons

    Heavy lifting, depending on the building you work in there could be mostly work with chicken product feet etc. Repetitive work. It seems like the job involves lots of labor. Breaking down boxes and lots of washing floors and machines. As a process technician it seems you are a batch maker. The batch process is manual labor.

    I have been working at Pacific Natural Foods full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    The pay is good for some areas, but other areas need a little bit of a raise to keep people in those hard to fill areas.

    Cons

    Communication between employees and management needs to improve. The dedicated employees are the ones who know the machines in and out they can help with issues that arise.

    Advice to Management

    Find the employees who are dedicated and work hard to making good products and promote them.

    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.

    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.

    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.

    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.

    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..
