    I have been working at Shearer's Foods full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Honestly I can't think of many. They treat the middle management like indentured servants and base labor worse.

    Cons

    Read Pros. Plus hot work investment with little to no relief. They tell you we are family oriented but make you work 13 days with one off durring the summer without asking if it's ok.

    Advice to Management

    Slow down and listen to your own words. "We are making cookies and crackers, not national defence work." Focus on putting out a top notch product for all customers and give people their hours as part of your budget.

    Pros

    Great pay, awesome people to work with. Fast paced, so I always stayed busy.

    Cons

    Management. People that didn't know their job got more praise and recognition than those that actually knew what to do.

    Actually pay attention to your good employees and not praise the bad ones.

    It is a fairly close commute for me. Making winter travel better. One of the larger employers in the area.

    Need to listen more to employees at each facility....they are all different and should not be run all the same way!!! What works at one does not mean it will work at another!!

    Only good thing about working their was the co-worker's.Everyone looks out for each other and helps out.

    Raise wages replace management and maybe you'll have people that want to stay.
