    I worked at Shamrock Foods full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    They pay pretty well to make it able not to leave and find that it else where no matter how unhappy they make you.

    Cons

    Managment flys by the seat of their pants. Training does not exist so learn quickly. Supervisors just don't care about their job or responsibilities they have.

    Advice to Management

    Stop fighting on the floor in front of employees

    Pros

    Okay Pay
    Flexible Work Hours
    Free Gas
    Great Benefits
    Friendly/Nice Co-workers

    Cons

    Feels like management forgets about you so I haven't experienced any company culture.
    Not flexible with vacation days.
    Needs to upgrade their technology. Our handhelds are out of date.
    They don't account for the wear and tear of our cars at all so Shamrock still wins.
    Few opportunities to move up
    Less free milk than I thought I would get lol

    I worked at Shamrock Foods full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Loved working there more than 7 yrs , when all new management came in after ice cream plant closed, they brought there employees from there, and us loyal employees were suddenly treated differently and most lost our jobs for the new transfers, which i could still work there i didn't mind working the long 10- 14 hr days when asked, loyalty i worked 22 days straight 14hrs a day during Christmas holidays, just to get butted out for inexperienced ice cream employee and i had more yrs at the rock then they did. Oh well, hope things are better but before that I was treated very good by management, cause of my long hrs and they calling me on my days off to come in, when i needed a day off they would work with you. I do miss that place and good pay.

    Cons

    Long hrs work holidays but you get paid for them doubletime and half.

    Advice to Management

    Treat your experience operaters with better respect there loyal to shamrock.early 1996-2002

    Pros

    Like any company there's a little power struggle but they pay well and treat employees nicely if you do what they ask.

    Cons

    HR should be renamed corporate manipulation. They're not very considerate or helpful. The freezer is pretty damn cold.

    Advice to Management

    Work together to fix issues, it would help a lot more than bickering.

    I appreciate the review, but I would like to better understand your frustration with HR. Shamrock has a number of HR professionals and I am guessing you have experience with one of them, so ... More

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

    Pros

    Pay and benefits are on par with industry. Although management will tell you that you are paid substantially more than industry standards. This is based mostly on warehouses that are not in the food distribution industry.

    Cons

    Management is non-responsive to employees. Decisions are made at levels of management that do not understand how the warehouse works. Often these decisions make the job harder to do and cut production.
    Floor management plays favorites for promotions, work assignments and hours. On the floor these often managers and supervisors disrespect employees and flat out lie to them. These same supervisory personnel use fear and intimidation to keep employees from voicing their opinions. While the company talks to the public about treating employees like family, in the warehouse, employees are treated like the companies owns their labor and time, both on the job and off.
    Management applies the rules in the employee handbook to benifit themselves. When violations by management are pointed out, exceptions are made or rules are bent to favor management.

    Advice to Management

    Employees have already told you what needs to happen and change, but as managers you have decided that employee ideas in the warehouse are not something you need to pay attention too. Treat your employees with dignity and respect. Get rid of managers that abuse drugs and alcohol, stop protecting bad managers and supervisors that use their positions to take out their anger on the employees. This only adds to the problem.
