    Really Disappointed!!

    Rather Not Say (Current Employee)

    ProsThe pay and benefits are real good. I love going to the Company store where you can get discounts on soups.

    ConsI have been employed at Campbell Soup for only five months and already looking for another job. There is a lot of favoritism in my department. The plant consists of a lot of temps working. I have had major issues with some of my co-workers because I I got hired from the outside as a permanent Campbell Soup employee and have never tempted. My Supervisor threatened to fire me the first day on the job!! Not kidding!!!!!!

    Advice to Senior ManagementI don't know what it takes to make a Company become successful but you should take complaints seriously. I have always admired and thought well of Campbell Soup until I actually became employed here. Supervisors and Team Leaders should not play favorites and be more open minded. There are two sides to every story!! I have met wonderful people here but this Company is not for me. I will not be mistreated!!

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company

    I loved every day working in the "soup house".

    Assistant Area Manager (Former Employee) Camden, NJ (US)

    ProsIt is a family owned business that has stayed true to it's roots. Quality products, made with quality people from quality ingredients.

    ConsLong hours and a lot of changing shift work

    Advice to Senior Managementincrease your direct marketing strategies. Focus on the family values and traditional quality products.
    You most broaden your product lines to include more ethnic products.

    Great training

    Director (Current Employee) Norwalk, CT (US)

    ProsGreat company for training and building your career when starting out. Gain valuable experience from a top notch CPG company. From a sales perspective, the insights and resources available far exceed other food companies.

    ConsSenior management needs to focus on culture and engagement to drive retention.

    Greedy, not family oriented at Paris, TX plant.

    Machine Operator (Current Employee) Paris, TX (US)

    ProsGood pay. Safe working conditions most of the time

    ConsWork 7 days per week, 8 to 12 hours per day with few days off in the sauce plant. Very stressful and hot temps in the summer. Chaotic planning from management. Too much control from supervision and management trying to make a name for themselves .

    Advice to Senior ManagementListen to what employees are saying instead of supervision because they will deceive you . They make a lot of bad political decisions and make paperwork look good etc.

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company
