          I have been working at Hilmar Cheese Company full-time for more than a year

          Pros

          Decent pay and benefits compared to other places in the area.

          Cons

          Hostile work environment. Some of the workers are good and friendly but overall most of the employees are shady liars, disgruntled and hate life. Management are just as bad, two face and playing favorites will never trust them.

          Advice to Management

          Quit assuming that all the BS that's coming out of the mouth of your favorite employees is true. If theres an open door policy as stated dont go around spreading rumors about your employees who are not part of your club.
