    I worked at Schreiber Foods full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    Salary and benefits are great. Most employees were a joy to work with(excluding management/supervisors).

    Cons

    Long hours, consistent mandatory over-time, not family-oriented at all, do not take into consideration employees ideas/suggestions, favoritism (kiss-butt and you are in management's favor), if you are vocal and not afraid to speak out(which should be everyone) you are labeled a trouble maker, implementing new, ridiculous disciplinary actions for the littlest infractions, seems to be trying to get rid of senior employees--those with 15+ years service. Making it harder on those who are left at 8-hours because eventually they want the whole plant to go to 12-hours. Some employees are immature and over-dramatic and supervisors do nothing to curb those employees behavior. A majority of the production supervisors (especially the 2 on first shift) are lazy and so they will leave a department short-handed instead of jumping in and helping. More employees would leave if they weren't the main income and/or insurance carrier in their families. Schreiber Foods know this and that is why they sit back on their heels and do nothing about the deteriorated moral of its employees since they took over. And some of the employees may talk bad about the company behind its back but then back down when questioned by management relying on those not afraid to speak up to say something.

    Advice to Management

    LISTEN to the employees who are actually running the plant and know what is going on. Take into consideration their ideas and thoughts and take a chance at implementing them. Actually get on the floor during the most busy times(for more than an hour or two---try like a whole day in each department). The company has a high employee turn-over rate because most of the employees (both current and former) tell it like it is to the outside world. Take off your rose-colored glasses and see your company through the eyes of most of your production floor/shipping workers. It is not as colorful and you think it is. Get out of La-La Land.

    Pros

    Retirement is amazing, hourly employees are fantastic at the plants. The home office culture is very positive

    Cons

    All supervisors are straight out of college with no experience, they are all promoted too quickly and destroy moral of hourly employees. Complete lack of leadership at the plants.

    Advice to Management

    Bring in some outside management at the plants. There needs to be some diversity in backgrounds and talents

    I have been working at Schreiber Foods full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    Schreiber is a company with high expectations, strong results, amazing people to work with, many growth opportunities, and awesome customers. Pay and benefits are above average. There is a high degree of ownership to every job, and therefore a high degree of reward and personal growth. Schreiber's leaders care about their employees (partners), and show this in many ways. Not only do they care about their employees, but also their ethics and values overall. Honesty and transparency is abundant.

    Cons

    You have to love being challenged and working hard to love working at Schreiber. No job is easy! Leadership positions work long hours, and many involve travel or relocation. Manufacturing level positions have demanding work schedules and can require overtime or off-shifts.

    I worked at Schreiber Foods full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    401k matching, 8% when I was there. All the overtime you want. After a year you get quarterly bonuses that are based on the company's sales.

    Cons

    Expect to work weekends. It was common to find out late Friday or even Saturday before we would know if we had the day off or not. No vacation days for a year. They track call ins, so above 3% and your fired. Good ole boy system and seniority means everything. Who gets the day off, seniority. Who gets the overtime(esp during slow season), seniority. Who takes out the trash, new guy. Management sucks. Everyone's on your side until something comes back to them then they'll throw you under the bus faster than you can blink. I worked in processing and it was common to be told to do different things by management team. They were never on the same page. Low morale.

    Advice to Management

    Get new TA's. Treat people better. Get someone who knows what they're doing in scheduling

    Pros

    Growing quickly outside the US. ESOP allows employees to retire early and wealthy. Home office building is best office environment in the region.

    Cons

    Not adding new jobs in US. Lack of diversity on the board and executives.

    Lots of good work happening that is securing our long term future success. Keep up the good work.
