A good production start

Pros: good benefits
Cons: co-worker conflict between each other
A typical day consist of cleaning and the general running of the production lines. I learned alot about the cleaning methods used in production factory's. The management at the time was still changing around alot. Co-workers out there really just depended on the type of person. The hardest part of the the job was when the palletizer would go down and – more... you would have to be doing all the stacking on pallets. – less

I thought it was a great place to work, and I really enjoyed the people that I worked with.
Team Member/Janitor (Former Employee), Reed City, MIMay 13, 2013
In the 2.8 years that I worked at Yoplait, I learned almost 40 jobs. I greatly enjoyed being able to learn so much in such a short amount of time. At the time, I thought it was a good way to get job security. A typical day for me was getting to work, getting the janitor keys and the janitor cart, and getting any supplies that I may need on my cart, – more... if I didn't stock it the night before. I would start with cleaning the women's locker room/bathroom. This would include the toilets, taking out trash, cleaning the sinks and mirrors, restocking paper products, sweeping and mopping the floors. Next I would clean the men's downstairs locker room/bathroom, doing exactly what I did in the women's room. Following that, I would ususally head to the second floor and clean the men's room on that floor. Next I would unlock, one by one, the office doors on that floor and take out the trash (every night), and vacuum the floors twice a week. Next I would sweep and mop the upstairs hallway. After I finished that, I would go back downstairs, put my cart away, and sweep and mop, vacuum the rugs, and take out the four trash bags located in the hallway. I also had to restock the hairnets, beard nets, and earplugs located in the hallway. Next I would go onto the main floor and check the paper towel holders and soap dispensers located throughout the plant and replace what was needed. Then I would clean the single bathroom located in milk receiving and the single bathroom located above Go-Gurt, and take out the office trash for this location as well. Finally I would restock my janitor cart, maybe clean the hallway windows if I had time, or sweep the stairway leading to the cafeteria, or clean the elevator. At the end of the night, I would return my keys to the scheduler, and do it all over again the next night. This is the last position that I held at Yoplait, and probably my favorite as well. – less

fast working pase
Stocker / packer (Former Employee), Fort Worth, TXMay 10, 2013
this was my first job ever so i was really nervous to start this job, as soon as the crew leader gave me directions and teached me how to do the job i got it really quick. what i learned about this job was that i had to be super fast and move around and find something to do when i was done working, i learned how to be responsible with objects. the management – more... was strict also they wanted me and other co workers to keep working till we were done with the order given. the hardest thing about the job was that every time we were done with some orders we had to start doing something new and learn how to work with it, the new orders. the most enjoyable part of the job was when i taped some of the boxes or add stickers to the orders it kept me moving faster. – less

Fun workplace
Packer (Former Employee), Rooty Hills NSWMay 3, 2013
meet alot of friendly people, leaned alot of skills like how to use an electric pallet jack, booking orders and alos cancelling orders. Got along with all the people i worked with, the most hardest part of a job was having to finish 200 - 250 oders before the pick-up trucks get to the dock. My most enjoyable part of my job was learning how to book orders – more... and picking riding an electric pallet jack last but not least making new friends with my co-workers. – less

Manufacturing Technician (Former Employee), Albuquerque, NMMarch 8, 2013
Pros: fellow employees
Cons: balancing work and life
I loved the people i worked with! Free cereal was another great benefit. A Typical work day is working your machine and just making sure it is producing the product. The most difficult part for me was balancing work and life. I never seemed to get caught up on sleep... and did not like who i was becoming because of it.
