- Cutrale Citrus Juices Usa, Inc03.Nov 2016
Cutrale is a relatively new company and is continue to improve in this area.
Support from management
Many managers have a long tenure with the organization and perform on levels that offer great training opportunities for persons starting in this field. Great mentors for beginners are the managers at Cutrale.
As a whole, the company is very clear through training and meetings what is expected of the workers as well as themselves, making it a team effort, altogether.
Freedom to work independently
Once training is complete, management does expect persons to work independently and promote that plant wide.
Through reports and the like staff is able to track their production results. Very competitive atmosphere between shifts. But ultimate goal is for the whole of the process to meet or surpass weekly goals set by upper management.
Through no fault of it's own, the company has only seen one or two females in supervisory roles that were not administrative. I only knew of two females in a supervisory role in my time there.
Attitude towards older colleagues
The company provides great training and welcomes senior colleagues into roles appropriate for them, they will not set someone up to fail before that person as the opportunity to learn to be great at what is expected of he/she.
The company sends key employees and managers for outside training/ school to continue investing in the company's future and that of the employees.
Overall compensation for your work
The pay is median for the area bit could be higher based on similar plants in the area. The company does however offer advancement opportunity from within.
Office / Work Environment
Many areas are temperature controlled while some are not. Safety is priority so ventilation and lighting is maintained weekly to ensure safe work environment for workers.
This is a company that wastes not. Water is recycled and cleaned and reused. The company recycles waste materials such as metals. This company works to maintain a green atmosphere and inspires that of workers as well through training by in house environmental staff.
While the company is a seasonal agriculture plant, there is an off season and staff is expected to plan vacations, major medical, and other foreseeable life happenings in the off season. But management works well with individuals who may have some unforeseeable things come up during season. They practice an open door policy and employees are encouraged to speak with their managers.
Overall, I believe Cutrale to be setting good standards for the city and surrounding areas. Cutrale has proven over the years to be able to give back to the community. I believe Cutrale is seen in a positive way by peers within the community.
Cutrale is growing and will continue to do so, I believe this allows for strong infrastructure and financial stability.
Where it is able to the company does and has provided tools and resources to aid person with disabilities to be able to perform work duties.
In a production plant setting where many believe production is the number one priority, I believe Cutrale has done an excellent job making it plant wide knowledge that safety is the number one priority.
There is always a fast paced atmosphere and through time constraints or mechanical failures you will find challenges daily, sometimes the same as the day before but at other times something you may not have dealt with.
Inclusive / Diverse
When working for the company you will find yourself in an influx of diversity. Persons from at least 4 different countries and at least that many different languages are common and welcomed at the plant.
