Company Culture

Mostly good people to work with

Support from management

Frequently under staffed/manned for smooth operation. This was due to number crunching to keep profits up

Teamwork

A lot of teamwork is necessary, as a production line everyone needs to help each other out

Freedom to work independently

occasionally you may be sent to a different department to do independent tasks for inventory or materials, etc.

Internal Communication

weekly meetings for employees to discuss incentive progress and accomplishments

Gender Equality

Very even ratio of men to women through out the facility

Attitude towards older colleagues

It is a little harder on the line due to the fast pace

It has advancement within the company to a certain extent

For this area and the type of work

What I like about the company

You work closely with other employees and there is a lot of joking and camaraderie among your fellow workers. Most of all you work together as a team and it makes you feel good to accomplish goals you have all set out together to accomplish, like $.50 hr

What I dislike about the company

I think they need to support their longer term employees needs a little better. They have a high turnover, mostly younger people that I think don't really want to work. But they have had some good people that they have let go because of blanket policy on

What I like about the company

Most of the people there are very friendly and willing to help each other out. It takes a lot of teamwork to prepare,bake and package massive quantities of bakery items (muffins,cakes,croissants etc.) so you all need to work together as a unified group. You become rather close with other team members and learn their strengths and weaknesses in the job, and someone is usually always there to help if you need and vice-versa.

What I dislike about the company

Some of the equipment we had was very outdated, in a brand new factory. The outdated equipment (wrapping machines) made it very difficult to secure accounts for newly introduced items. It caused massive waste of product and made the employees extremely stressed trying to make up for the mechanical shortcomings. Most of the equipment was new, it would just make sense to invest in keeping with new equip. if you are wanting to expand your line.
