This is the worst place you would ever want to work. No work life balance. Training was none!!
Customer Service (Former Employee) –  St. Louis, MO15 October 2012
A typical work consist of 250-375 emails some on which were not meant for you, people would copy all when replying. You would not have time to reply before someone else would be sending the same email time and time again. I've always learned you have external and internal customers and treat them as such, not at this place. I was laid off and before I could get out the door my job was posted along with several of my peers. Management is the pits. Human Resource would listen and following up was unheard of!
Pros
discounted products

Productive work, fast-paced, and great for anyone with a sweet tooth.
R&D Lab Technician (Former Employee) –  Ogden, Utah8 August 2013
A typical day at work involved working on projects. A project could be improving a current or previous product, brainstorming on new ideas with specific toppings, or modifying the color of frosting to match a cartoon character. This would be following by shelf-life testing and you would document your activities on projects at the end of the day. The hardest part of the job was dealing with the hot ovens. The most enjoyable part of the job was utilizing your own creativity and taking pictures of cookies in the miniature photo booth.
Pros
Creativity, relaxed atmosphere, and fast-testing opportunities
Cons
Temporary position, hot ovens, must work fast, and the potential for a lot of weight gain if you are not careful.

80 hour weeks are normal
Packer (Former Employee) –  South Beloit14 April 2013
This company works 12 hour shifts 7 days a week 6 to 8 months a year. They have no regard to family-life frequently making employees work over with no notice or chance to make child care arrangement. State laws mean nothing, telling investigators they are "agricultural" and exempt. They make cookies for crying out loud.
Pros
free parking
Cons
overwork, not concerned for safety, low pay
