    I have been working at Ready Pac Foods full-time

    Pros

    There are a lot of growth opportunities at Bonduelle Fresh Americas. There is a lot of internal promotion as well that makes this feel like a stable and opportunistic company. The people that work here are all very passionate and driven. Every new project is exciting and fun.

    Cons

    There can be lack of communication between departments at times, but leadership recognizes it and is working towards a solution to better work together. The office building itself is a little old and outdated - in need of some TLC.

    No cons, everything is great!!!

    Advice to Management

    keep listening to and taking care of the front line workers. Keep the focus on product, people, and process and we will keep doing great!

    I worked at Ready Pac Foods full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    This job exposed to learn more clerical work than I was used to. It can be challenging and I see it as a pro because challenges are what allow you to work on weaknesses. Good benefits

    Cons

    Sometimes it may not be as flexible. My department was great but it is about to close down and I've heard other departments that the schedules aren't consistent, they can decide to switch you up from morning to night shift with not much notice.

    Advice to Management

    Continue to work on flexibility. Please place supervisors who are qualified to be in such positions, I've met quite a few supervisors who are clueless on a lot of tasks that they're put in charge of leading. Some supervisors/coordinators should not be where they are right now.

    I have been working at Ready Pac Foods full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Market leader in salads, lots of low cost produce for employees, healthy products.

    Cons

    Large disconnect between what execs say/do. Little support or career growth opportunities, especially for women. Under-staffed in critical depts which slows revenue growth and impedes the development of existing associates. HR people not-so-friendly with an icy demeanor. Some people are held accountable, others not so much.

    Advice to Management

    Lead by example - Honor the culture and core values that you present. You lose the trust of your team when you say one thing, but do another.
    Promote deserving associates. Nurture the talent (fairly, based on merit) and you won't have to watch them leave for other opportunities

    Pros

    Great product innovation, and leadership team. Supportive team environment with an inclusive vibe.

    Cons

    Growing pains, want new products quicker. Systems over all are improving, but of course would want to see them move faster.

    Advice to Management

    Stay as connect in the future to associates as you are today, no matter how much we grow.

    Keep doing what you are doing! Doing Great!
