    I worked at Schreiber Foods full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Schreiber is a great employer, they look after their employees. There is a fantastic Stock option program that goes hand in hand with 401 K contributions. You can receive paid education as well

    Cons

    Demanding schedule and the "red Tape" that goes along with most large organizations. If you can do as required, it's no problem.

    Pros

    Good Pay and a balanced work life with decent benefits

    Cons

    severe lack of overtime in maintenance but it gives you more time at home. Health insurance is bad, but most places are these days

    Advice to Management

    Keep it up

    Pros

    The company itself is wonderful I really like my job itself. 8 hour shifts decent pay for the area.

    Cons

    Bad management horrible HR department. Day shift management will yell at you on the floor in front of everyone for no reason. They have their own agenda and if they dont like you then your life will be very hard at work. Basically hostile work environment. They allow specific employees to do whatever the want and get away with it including but not limited to bullying others and not taking responsibility for their actions and blaming it on others despite evidence to the contrary.

    Advice to Management

    Firing the department head and day shift management and head if HR will go a long way but not fix all the problems

    Pros

    Good pay, decent hours, for the most part friendly co-workers. frequent raises, job security, great quarterly bonus, good benefits.

    Cons

    HR is not a supportive department, everybody fears HR.
    Everything is based on seniority, if you ask to go home, and there is someone who has worked there longer than you, they get to go home not you. some positions are given to people solely based on how long theyve worked there not based on actual experience or merit.

    Pros

    Retirement plan and ESOP program

    Cons

    Work life balance. Poor communication from our home office to our plants

    Advice to Management

    Be more transparent on the direction we are trying to go. Communicate business news better.

    I worked at Schreiber Foods full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    LOL! LOL! LOL! LOL! LOL!

    Cons

    Being white is a negative because you're not a tax break. They will fire you for no reason, the union is useless. Most of the other "partners" will stab you in the back by lying so they look good and can keep their job. Big brother is coming soon as in $2m in security cameras so there's that for the peons to look forward to. It only gets cleaned when there's a government inspection scheduled.

    Advice to Management

    Keep treating people like numbers and see how that works out.

    I have been working at Schreiber Foods full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    Competitive salaries, benefits you typically find at large companies, flexible work hours (for salaried partners).

    Cons

    The politics! Omg!!! I’ve worked for other large companies and have never seen anything quite like this. It is totally like a high school popularity game. They like to tout the ‘Schreiber nice’ mentality, but that is really an excuse for leaders to act cowardly in providing clear, actionable feedback. A lot is done based on perceptions, not necessarily reality which is great for people good at pretending to be busy/overworked or know what you’re doing.... doesn’t matter if it’s real. It is a very passive-aggressive environment!

    A watch out to other people reading reviews of this company is if the review sounds too good to be true, it probably is. It was probably written by the HR department as they frequently do that to keep the rating up and offset the negative feedback. This is a fact as it was talked about openly and directly by HR in a meeting. Maybe all companies do that, but this one does for sure.

    Advice to Management

    Make sure leaders are qualified before you promote them. And the leader to partner ratio is ridiculous. Waaayyyy too many leaders that have 1-3 direct reports.

    I worked at Schreiber Foods full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Uniform, breaks, health care, employee owned and operated

    Cons

    Work conditions are almost unbearable at times, no voice or autonomy, employees are just a number, human resource department is a waste of payroll

    Advice to Management

    Look at your most valuable asset and do what it takes to keep them.

    Pros

    Retirement and insurance plans and benefits, discount on cheese, friendly employees, nice building

    Cons

    Terrible HR, boys club attitude in supply chain department, lack of ability to move up the latter, you feel like you are working to give more money to the higher ups, long hours and no work/life balance, too many meetings

    Advice to Management

    Less meetings, improve the business culture by having weekly events or parties (such as on Friday’s), hire more women in supply chain (there are far more men). HR should stop acting like they are superior to everyone and being power hungry.
