    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.

    I worked at Seneca Foods part-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Really good pay
    Great company culture
    Your job is hanging out with farmers and talking about peaches... it's awesome.

    Cons

    They own you for the Summer/peach season. This isn't really a problem though, if you're like me and this is a Summer job and you're working with friends.

    For people that don't like driving, there's a lot of it. They give you a handsome stipend for gas/maintenance though.

    Advice to Management

    Keep on doing what you're doing.

    I have been working at Seneca Foods full-time (More than 8 years)

    Pros

    Seneca tries to promote from within, and as long as you do your job and show you're putting forth effort, you will be fine. They have also been flexible when I've had things come up short-notice.

    Cons

    The employee morale in certain departments is not great. I think this is due to gossipy behaviors and a breakdown in communication.

    Advice to Management

    The communication needs to improve, which includes having the right people in the right discussions.


  10. "Seneca was an awesome place to work. Very well run and management listened and followed through."

    Pros

    Pay was good and the company is well run. I especially liked that communication was open as well as their job door policy.

    Cons

    There were long days during the pack but what helped is all the overtime that we were paid for any job we did.

    Advice to Management

    Keep communicating.

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

    Pros

    Some flexibility, decent pay, great seasonal work for the summer, generally good coworkers, not much bs from supervisors or management

    Cons

    Payroll shirts you hours, the hours worked are very odd ball (4-8 am and pm is a general guide), always on call

    Advice to Management

    Fix payroll and get better vans, and maybe hire some more relief drivers, and send water coolers to the fields with the crews
