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

    Pros

    Even though I was a contractor, I found that the company and team made every effort to make me feel like family and a permanant employee. They extend many of their "other" benefits such as food donations and discounts, time off, and training programs to their temp and contract workers. I also felt like, even though this was a large leap forward in my career, that they were very patient with my learning process and allowed for opportunities for growth in the role, and trusted my contributions to the company and projects assigned to me. I hope to return some day.

    Cons

    The shift scheduling can be cumbersome, especially if you are on any of the administrative teams and don't interact with the production staff on a regular basis due to the altering shifts.

    Advice to Management

    Be as transparent and up front to your staff as possible.

    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

    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 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.

    Pros

    Practice what they preach in sustainablf food production with quality ingredients. Great employee discounts on company brand foods, decent pay and diverse schedules.

    Cons

    long hours, many positions are in a warehouse environment and not all employees believe in company values.

    Advice to Management

    Hourly pay should be reflective of each employees education, even within the same position. Employees with more education should receive higher pay than their counterparts that lack the equivalent accomplishment.
