Company Culture

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.

Teamwork

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.

Internal Communication

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.

Gender Equality

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.

Career Development

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.

Environmental Friendliness

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.

Work-Life Balance

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.

Company Image

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.

Job Security

Cutrale is growing and will continue to do so, I believe this allows for strong infrastructure and financial stability.

Handicapped Accessibility

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.

Workplace Safety

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.

Challenging Work

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.

Company Culture

Felt mistreated and had multiple instances of being lied to.

Support from management

Manager was never available for questions. Schedule changed with less than a days notice. Felt belittled when couldn't comply with unreasonable requests.

Teamwork

My direct colleagues were the only highlight. We really tried to work together and share the load.

Freedom to work independently

Felt like a cog in the machine.

Internal Communication

Often sent emails to management that went unanswered or unaddressed.

Gender Equality

I guess everyone was treated equally. Just poorly.

Attitude towards older colleagues

Older colleagues? No one stuck around for long if they could avoid it.

Career Development

No one planned to stick around.

Overall compensation for your work

Pay was about average but benefits were below my expectations. The vacation days were ridiculously hard to accrue and use.

Office / Work Environment

I worked in the lab which generally was well kept. The rest of the plant however was a plethora of hazards.

Environmental Friendliness

They did things the cheapest way possible. Use your own imagination.

Work-Life Balance

The plant ran 24/7. If someone quit you had to cover the other shifts. Meaning working 7 days a week and shift that was needed. Not once was life outside of work given consideration. This was the most soulless company I've ever worked for.

Company Image

Everyone hated it.

Job Security

Due to the season of citrus having a job in off season was constantly dangled over you. They ruled with fear.

Handicapped Accessibility

You couldn't access much of the facility with out being able bodied. The plant is old and was obviously built in phases. Access between areas is hazardous at best without a handicap.

Workplace Safety

I personally had 3 near misses due to improper shut out procedures. No one seemed to care. Made the faculty very unsafe.

Challenging Work

The work itself was challenging and kept me occupied.

Inclusive / Diverse

I guess all kinds of people worked there.

Suggestions for improvement

  • I don't know where to begin.

What I like about the company

I was lied to get me in because of how desperate they were for qualified lab techs. I very quickly was attempting to leave.

What I dislike about the company

The hardest part for me was the inconsistency in scheduling. Working 12 hour night shifts and having less that a days notice of schedule changes was the one thing I could not manage.
