Maintenance team was good a little clicky but if you have an open mind you well be ok..Big companies have issues with being top heavy in my experience.Some slackers in the union environment cause this I believeLots of cameras.Lots of hours in busy season.Overall great place to work Good pay.Food safety is top priority. They use to order in a hot lunch if you work 4 hours overtime.New plant manager decided that a hungry man was a great way to save money!There was a ton of other ways to save money in the shop.In my opinion you don't save money buy putting camera s in and then cheap out on a simple 15 dollar meal.That's bean counters for ya

Management is a joke. Workers voice their concerns, and they say they're going to address them, but nothing ever happens. They're more concerned with making all the stuffy office workers happy, and letting the workers on the floor suffer. Start times are all over the place, ranging anywhere from 6am to 10am, and don't even bother requesting days off, you won't get them. Pay is more than minimum, but that's the only thing that will keep you there. Everyone working there is either bitter, sad, or too old to change careers. Best job in there is going with the delivery drivers, as you don't have to be in the plant. Deliveries range from 20min drives, all the way up to 8hr roundtrips. New workers also get forced to work Wednesday (non production day), which is a 5am start, moving eggs around in the refrigeration area. Don't work here, everyone in the area knows that.
Pros
Free coffee machine in the lunchroom (doesn't taste good though)
Cons
Long, Constantly changing shifts, Terrible attitudes, No raises, Management doesn't care about you. Dead end job.

This company gave me a solid foundation and open a door for a great opportunity in my future career.If you are looking for a learning experience you may consider working for MLF. If you are looking for a career, I don't recommend it.
Pros
Experience and knowledge
Cons
harassment and discrimination

The level of respect starts at Supervisor level and up. Lead Hands are given all responsibilities of a Supervisor but not paid for it. Supervisors use the term "I as your Supervisor" way too much. Line workers all agree that there is a clear division between Supervision on up and them.
Pros
Supervisor and up good pay. Lead Hand and down poor pay.
Cons
Not consistent

Good pay for position. Management structure is flawed. In essence it is the the old way of thinking. Instead of collaborating, finger pointing and deflection is apparent, while trying to move forward to a common goal. Very difficult to do so. There are very few leaders only bosses. All around about a 2star when it comes to working there.
Pros
Pay/Benefits
Cons
Lack of leadership, backstabbing, and all around unorganized.

Worst place for anyone who choose to work for this dump. No training will be provided if you working as Live hanger. Get ready to face verbally abused by co workers. Everyone in Live Receiving treat new employees with disrespectfully. Stay away from this dump if you don't want to lose your self respect.
Pros
None
Cons
Everything

The company is very inconsiderate. I was doing a good job according to my supervisor reviews. Then just before my probation time was approaching; put of nowhere they let me go and justified it by lying about my review, saying I was not learning the job fast enough. Very wrong and inaccurate. They lied.
Pros
The pay was fine
Cons
Company is inconsiderate

horrible managers. No emotional intelligence from anyone in the office. Plant manager hides and only comes out when its time to argue or put supervisors down. Disorganzied with a terrible work culture. Stay away and looks for a company that is with the times. Be leaders not prison guards
Pros

Low supervision so you have opportunity to do a great job without pressure. While doing audits you have time to meet lot of people with different backgrounds.
Pros
Great coworkers
Cons
Fast pace

The supervisor was really nice and helpful. Company executives are prompt in responding to your mails. They take your situation into account but will not be willing to go above and beyond.
