What is the company culture like at Michael Foods, Inc.? Help others make critical decisions by letting them know what it’s like to work here!

Suggestions for improvement

  • Invest more in new capital. Take the time to properly train new employees before putting them on their own, increase pay to give them an incentive to stay.

What I like about the company

I enjoy the actual work I do, just not the conditions it has to be performed in.

What I dislike about the company

The company installs used equipment that are difficult to find parts/service, and expect us to perform at capacity right out of the gate.

What I like about the company

I cannot think of any, other than working well with the other hourly employees on the production floor
