    I have been working at Seneca Foods full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Some plants are better to work at than other plants. Some departments are better than others. Most people are easy to work with.

    Cons

    It's a mixed bag. If you get transferred to the wrong location or department, your experience will change.

    Very far behind the technology curve and resistant to change.

    Oftentimes the company will spend a quarter to save a dime.

    Advice to Management

    Consistency. Work on it.

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

    Pros

    The ability to earn extra money. The benefits were some of the best that I have ever had. Time off was easy to achieve during to off production months.

    Cons

    Little time off during the summer months. Had a hard time asking for extra time off because it would mean someone would have to work more hours before receiving their days off.

    Advice to Management

    Work on a different work schedule during the production months.
