There's a lot of work to be done. It's a multicultural staff with a positive work attitude for the environment. Some days were harder than others, but overall a very good employer.

There is a huge culture shock working here. If you are white you are the minority and everyone treats you horrible. The only good thing is the hr team.

Not a safe place to work they just hand out forklift tickets to incompetent people management doesnt seem to care about safety because when you complain about unsafe workers they fire you and keep the unsafe people as it is in thei "culture" to not understand direction no work life balance as they expect you to work 10-14 hrs per day I would definitely not recommended this place to anyone

This company is considered a farm so it gets away with low pay for very long hours 10-13/day. Not enough health and safety in the work area and people are always yelling at you to go faster. Not to mention some people can take a lot of sick days with no consequences while others can’t

Good to work with different people but after one time it will get hactic and out of control at wor. Management is good but keep forcing workers to do fast even tho they have less orders to do on a faily basis.

Highline mushrooms is a great place to gain experience in a variety of working fields. Communication is key, although it may seem hard to get used to the work environment everyone is treated like family.

The company is strong. There will always be Jon opportunities at Highline but it is definitely not for everyone. That's why they have to hire so many foreign workers on contracts. I worked countless 15/16 hour shifts and not once was I aware of hour busy it was going to be going in those mornings.

No room for advancement, the company cuts costs anywhere to replace local with temporary foreign workers. And treat them poorly. The job is very steady because no one wants to work there.But the pay is low and they will work you as much as possible.

If you are looking for a job that belittles and degrades you on a daily basis - you've found your spot! I have never worked in an office environment quite like this. if you are wondering why they are constantly hiring HR people, it isn't being the are growing... its because it is a terrible place to try and develop yourself and they have a few people that "run" the department - if you don't fit in..... GOOD LUCK. And with that many hr people, have fun trying to voice your opinion on anything.

Highline is a great place to work. Is it challenging and fast paced? Yes. Does Highline care about their employees? Yes.

Highline tries to give their employees the best they can. There are multiple different social events that employees and their family get to attend for free. Highline also provides a comprehensive benefit package for all employees, including health, dental, vision, life insurance, pension, etc.


Unlike other agriculture companies in the area, Highline pays overtime, holiday pay, statutory pay, and tries to regulate hours the best they can.


Highline appreciates their employees, and will go above and beyond where they can. Travel pay is provided to every hourly associate to help offset the cost of commuting.


Highline is a great place to work and will always embrace new employees. If you have any questions, you are encouraged to speak with managers or HR, and help will be provided.

management is HORRIBLE, i regret working here as they did little to nothing to help me when i was having problems working here & when i finally went to complain about my manager, they fired me a week later, without notice. I truly 100% recommend that if you are applying here or thinking of working here, to just go somewhere else to look for employment. they do not care about you here @ highline. not to mention what they pay you is horrible, you could easily go somewhere else and get $3-$5 more an hour.
Also, i was there 6-7 months, i was elegible for my benefits, they "put them through" at my 3 month mark & every time i asked about it, hey said there was an error with the system and i am unable to get benefits, but every one else could a quire theire benefits? terrible, terrible company.

my job title says volunteer but i was not a volunteer.

Dear former packing employee,

Thank you for your feedback and the opportunity to reply to your concerns. Due to the fast paced environment and meeting the demands of our customers, it is expected that at times the workload would increase and you may be requested to do other duties as assigned.


If there is any additional information you would like to share with Human Resources, we welcome your call.

Dear Former Heavy Equipment Operator,

We appreciate your candid feedback and are glad to hear that you enjoyed working with your managers and supervisors.


At times there may be a strong smell which is part of the process of growing mushrooms.


We are proud to offer many extended benefits to our associates which are over and above the required ESA regulations.


We wish you the best with your future endeavours.
