I liked the break schedule. When the entire factory is running great you work an hour and break an hour rotation. There are different products running at the same time. The baker is the main focus point because of the importance of its role. Multiple products travel through the baker from strudels to biscuits. If that area has an issue affecting its performance, downtime is guaranteed for employees. The visual attraction from my perspective in the factory is the big digital clock displayed on the wall that addresses the operating time length and the expected downtime is issues. Sometimes you may arrive on your shift and have for hours to commute with employees and play card games for entertainment and still receive pay for the mechanical flaws. If, you are hired for that company it's truly a blessing!

The farm up in Rockport, Washington is a small operation in comparison to other prospects owned and operated by General Mills; however, this is expected of an organically sourced farm. As with any type of farming there are long hours involved, but not so much that there is a feeling of being overwhelmed with work. The environment sculpted between workers and management is sculpted in a manner that not only encourages employees to continue to work there, but also to want to be there. Management is very understanding of the need to take a day off to maintain health or to recover it. Sick pay is awarded fairly, and is dispersed in a timely manner after the initial request. The work is labor intensive, but also varied enough to prevent overstressing of joints and muscles from repetitive action. The experience of working in such a friendly, yet fulfilling environment was certainly a worthwhile experience.
Working here was a great experience. I worked at the location in Murfreesboro TN. The employees full time were wonderful and always asking if the temporaries needed help on what they were working on. They also had a lot of give a way's. The money also played an important role they actually paid what you were worth. weekends were more as well. I felt like the company cared about the employees
