    Pros

    You won't break a sweat working here lol. Its an easy job over all, just repetitive. If you need money and don't wanna get all hot and sweaty then work here.

    Cons

    They have poor management skills, went 7 years with no raise, then get a 15 cents to 35 cents raise. You gotta know someone to move up, if they don't like you or aren't buddy buddy with you, then they will try to get you out or demoted. Management doesn't care what the workers have to say. When the supervisors mess up they blame the ones below them and say they didn't tell them to do that to save their own butt.

    Pros

    I started at Readypac just a few years out of high school, and had very little experience in the job market. I was able to grow with the company and learn many new job skills. I no longer consider this a job, i'm proud to call my time here a career!

    Cons

    This business runs great, and i can't think of a single complaint.

    Advice to Management

    Thank you for steering this company in the right direction and creating such a wonderful work environment!

    Pros

    Upper management made a complete 180 turn around. Interactive, engaged, and supportive. Will recommend Ready Pac to others in the same field.

    Fast paced environment, but manageable. Working on easing 1st and 2nd shift at end of each shift, making it a smooth transition.

    Advice to Management

    Keep up the good work

    Pros

    This company is making a difference in the world, giving people the freedom to eat fresh, healthy and convenient food. Great company culture with respect and recognition for employees who contribute. A super smart and passionate leadership team that is getting results. The perfect size company that's large enough to provide benefits and resources but small enough to be agile, innovative and value contributions from all levels of the organization.

    Cons

    The facility is not super fancy, and could benefit from more natural light and updates. Parking is a bit of a hassles. Would be fantastic to invest in a great cafeteria that reflects the company mission.. And the benefits are good, but can be improved as the company grows too.

    Advice to Management

    The way you focus and invest on your employees, customers and consumers is inspiring and effective! Keep doing what you're doing. This company is very diverse which is great to see. And new hires are bringing in more women in higher roles, which is great. Would love to see that continue into the highest levels of the organization.

    Pros

    Company will be sold one day :)

    Cons

    Poor mismanagement in Swedesboro. Upper management stays in their office's all day and come on the floor only when CEO or Supply Chain Manager is visiting. Employee's are spoken down to constantly.

    Advice to Management

    Overhaul your management team in Swedesboro. Review the supervisors you have lost in the past five years. Its quite alarming.
