    I have been working at Leprino Foods full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    The only pro to this job is the pay at least for production workers not sure about office people. (Have to try and find a job that pays close to same so stuck here tell then):(

    Cons

    Days off suck, work schedule sucks, clock in and out is supper strict, (I have learned money isn’t everything) No yearly raises only promotion raises- promotions aren’t worth it. This company starting pay is so high to suck you into a crappy job

    Advice to Management

    Care for the people who work for you they have a life and family too

    I have been working at Leprino Foods full-time for more than 10 years

    Pros

    The pay is average for manufacturing as it used to be above average, but average is better than below average. Benefits are average, holiday pay is good along with the several paid holidays.

    Cons

    Old style leadership that is results driven only meaning the employees are pretty much just a seniority number. The employee moral is negative because of lack of communication and they get frustrated with surprises. No work life balance is the common factor with hourly and supervisor employees. Supervisors forced to work days off with no compensation and leads to negative attitudes towards hourly work force, then hourly...

    Advice to Management

    Every work place has opportunities, but collaboration with hourly and supervisor level employees on finding solutions for the common issues instead of doing things the lazy way and just writing employees up and making them feel alone and demotivated. Invest in you management team on how to empower people or maybe place them in roles with no direct reports, but replace them with individuals with leadership and management...

    I have been working at Leprino Foods

    Pros

    If you demand a lot of yourself, then you will perform very well. Self-starter and willingness to learn will get you far.

    Cons

    Individuals straight out of college may have a hard time understanding the mindset of production floor employees. However, just with any other job, you eventually understand it and it's easier from there on out.

    Advice to Management

    None to give.

    Pros

    Beautiful new modern plant with state of the art equipment. Average to slightly above as far as benefits and pay. Due to high employee turnover rate chances to move up are good.

    Cons

    Very stressful work enviorment due to very poor training in all areas, and little if no communication. Leadership group doesn't have a clue!!! Mandatory overtime you either volunteer or as they say you will be voluntold. Employee turnover rate is extremely high in all areas and job levels. Accident rate for the last year hit a record high!!! H.R. policies are very rigid not flexible whatsoever. Alot of chiefs and...

    LISTEN, LISTEN,LISTEN to what your employees are saying! This is a beautiful new plant and could be a great place to work if there was better leadership. The negative atmosphere and work enviroment is like a cancer. Employess need to know they have ownership in the company and are heard. Advice to new plant manager, it's time to make changes and get rid of some of your department managers and supervisors. You need to...

    Pros

    One of the best paying jobs in the city. Great co-workers awesome to be around, willing to help you out and help you grow as an employee.

    Cons

    You can't speak up and say what is on your mind you will be labeled as a negative person. No promotions if your a hard worker and knowledgeable in your job. Promotions given to people who brown nosed the supervisors and not knowledgeable in the areas they work in. Upper management is very disorganized. Managers, supervisors, and team leads are on very different pages. Will work you long hours. You will be written up if...

    Advice to Management

    Management you need to loosen up on your dictatorship and work better with employees and treat them better. Turn over is pretty bad due to poor management. The job we do is easy but hard to perform due to you being unorganized. Practice what you preach. Follow your gmp policy you set in place. Change the policies that are bringing morale down.

    Pros

    The company is very innovative as far as product development is concerned. Customer service is second to none. Product quality and safety is extremely high. Pay and benefits are competitive.

    Cons

    Leprino does not care about their people at all. They have an extremely high turnover rate - and really do not care. 12-14 hour days are the regular, not the exception. The company states that they want to triple revenue, but has no vision or plan to get there. The senior leaders of the company try to run the company as the small business it was 50 years ago - not the multi-billion dollar company it is today. Senior...

    Advice to Management

    Care about your people. Realize that your company has entered the 21st century and needs to change. Leprino may be the market leader in mozzarella today, but if it does not change with the times, competitors will eventually overtake market share.
