    I worked at Strack & Van Til (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Great co workers and managers. Flexible scheduling around school if you are in school. Good for people who are retired also.

    Cons

    Company cannot attract and retain hard working employees. This is because the company does not value it's employees what so ever. The majority of my co workers and I never saw $9/ hour even having been there for years. (some even less than $8/ hour) Good luck getting benefits, they will try their absolute best to keep benefits from you. Many long time dedicated employees were let go by the company because they were too expensive to keep. Think hard work and loyalty will get you somewhere here? Think again. If you believe Jeff Strack will turn this company around, think again also, the guy is all talk.

    Advice to Management

    Wake up and see the company's true colors.

    I worked at Strack & Van Til part-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    I had some of the best co workers a guy could ask for. It's not about the job, it's about the people you work with.

    Cons

    Very backward company. When the company transferred over to IGG a lot of people including myself were let go. Primarily long timers who made more and who had more vacation time to save money. Company does not treat employees right.

    Advice to Management

    None that I can think of.

    Pros

    There are none, it was just a job.

    Cons

    Terrible and lazy management. Hard work for very low salary. Employees that didn't do their job very well and stole from the company. Very dirty work environment. Employees quit quite often due to the poor leadership of the management. Management was often rude and disrespectful of their employees.

    Advice to Management

    Stop being lazy and work just as hard as everyone else. Pay your workers more and treat your employees with the respect they deserve.
