    Nice place to work in the neighborhood. They were not afraid to take an office clerk and cross train them to know all positions.

    Advice to Management

    Don't be snobs. Listen to your employees when they have a suggestion or complaint.

    I worked at Sara Lee full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    The pay is decent and the benefits are good.

    Cons

    The people keep up a lot of mess, the supervisors don't care. the supervisors aren't interested in what you have to say. They tell you have to work over at the last minute.

    Advice to Management

    get a better team in there you would have a better company. Train the supervisors how to talk and schedule people the correct way. Learn to have more compassion for their employees. Change some rules about OT and last minute call outs and the employee that does that job has to stay.
