Awesome Production Supervisor on 3rd shift

I am a fairly new production operator on the 3rd shift. I was welcomed on board in such a manner that I was super comfortable and felt valued. My supervisor and his assistant are amazing. As a woman in what would be traditionally a masculine type job, I am encouraged to learn and work in any space and perform all tasks. My Supervisor is extremely smart, funny and compassionate. All my coworkers are so friendly and accommodating.


Really great pay and benefits. Awesome staff and Supervisor.


Very short 10 minute break and a 30 minute meal break. That’s it.

This place is bad. All the production manager cares about is certain people and getting work out as fast as possible no matter the outcome. Alot of favoritism!!! She sits on a table chews gum loud and texts on cellphone during meeting. Very professional right??!!

It’s ok

It’s a great place to work but the only thing I hate it’s a lot of dirty things goes on out there. People look out for the people the cool white and let them get buy with anything.

Very Professional Work Environment

DSM Food Specialties is a very corporate environment. Management is strict and vigilant. They do not mess around at this facility. Quality control does and excellent job. Everyone working at this site must be competent or will not last long.

Toxic and cut throat

Has good benefits and competitive pay, but extremely lacking in management knowing what to do how to do it and also the way people are spoken to. Problems never get solved only covered up. Must go 1 to 2 levels higher to get any results for a problem.


Easy work


Poor management, no advancement, and poor culture.

Diversity at any cost

Culture is awful. There is a great disconnect between the top and the bottom. Promotions are based more on diversity than merit. No diversity in production. We have college graduates working in the plant for supervisors who barely passed high school. If you ain't Dutch you ain't much.


Decent pay and benefits


Pretty much everything else
