I worked at Land O'Lakes full-time
Work life balance is nice. Pay is above average for what your responsibilities are (at least in my department) Lots of time away from work while on the clock such as volunteering, parties etc.
Extremely difficult to move-up within the company. Had five interviews, but none of them pulled through for me.
I was told I could get some on-the-job training in the transportation department I was looking to join after interviewing with the hiring managers(for one of the jobs I didn't get).
I arranged time to meet with them, but when it was time, my manager in my department told me that the company doesn't allow that unless you take hours from your PTO.
Hard to move up here.
Advice to Management
Communicate better. Identify who actually costs people money before laying off people. Dairy foods R&D employees always are having parties and making food for lunch on the company dime(and time), but none of them were involved in the lay-off.
I applied through an employee referral. The process took 3 days. I interviewed at Land O'Lakes.
There were 4 interviews with various management and human resource. It was dragged on and interviewers were late or postponed their appointment with you. Had to fill out my application online two times because of a software issue and was making things difficult. This was what I thought to be a great career but I was greatly disappointing.
I did my homework about my wages thanks to this and other sites similar. I was told they would match that wage based on additional yearly bonuses but these bonuses never happened. Unknown to me my job title was changed so I was kept from advancing to higher pay after creating this new title corporate red flags went away!
