Velveeta Sucks Customer Reviews and Feedback
Velveeta is a brand name for a processed cheese product that tastes like an American cheese, with a softer and smoother texture than non-processed cheese. When melted, Velveeta keeps a fully integrated and evenly clump-free liquid texture. It was invented in 1918 by Emil Frey of the Monroe Cheese Company in Monroe, New York.
Placer (Former Employee) says"Poor work conditions, cold climates, slippery water, short breaks, bad pay, and ear plugs leave u deaf. Short staffing unrealistic call in procedure. Playin favorites Cons: Work 6/7 days a week"
Class E: Spray Dry Cookroom Operator (Former Employee) says"You are told that family comes first. That is only true if you work in the front office or your family consists of just you. They do have good pay if you don't mind not having the time to spend it. Working 12 hrs a day 7 days a week for months on end takes a toll on a body not just physically but mentally. And then asked to do an 8 hr turn around into another 12 hr day is a normal almost daily routine depending on the department you are in. Cons: Everything else."
Poucher (Current Employee) says"Overall"
Production Worker (Former Employee) says"This is a very fast paced and challenging job. There are a lot of different processes to learn and they give you very little to no training. They stick you with a person who doesn’t speak the same language as you and you’re supposed to learn a very complex job by someone pointing at things. I was hired on through a temp agency and made 13.25, which isn’t nearly a fair wage for the amount of physical labor you do each day. 12 long hours a day of constant strenuous activity. All of the people you work with have it out for you from the moment they see you. It doesn’t matter how fast you learn, how hard you bust your butt, if they don’t like you you will be fired for absolutely no reason. I was told I’d be hired after 3 months. I worked there 7 months and was fired for missing a day of work. A DAY. I wouldn’t recommend this job to anyone. The work is really hard, the people you work with and the management don’t care and you work so much you have no life. Think carefully before being employed here. Cons: Everything"
Vat Wash/ Tumbler Operator (Former Employee) says"Not a good place to work. No one cares about your opinions managrrs not helpful. Deceiving pay doesnt counter cons. I wouldnt suggest working here . At all"
Material Handler (Former Employee) says"Don’t work here . I promise you they lie about overtime management is the worst there rude asf . Don’t waist your time at this company it’s. Joke ... Cons: Cold, rude people, low pay, work everyday"
Slicer Operator (Former Employee) says"Good job for kids to make money to goto college. Other manufacturing jobs pay more money. if your looking for longevity I would say go back to school."
Placer (Former Employee) says"The management doesn’t care about the employees. IE I went to work sick and told them I wasn’t feeling good and they say you have to stay, but they sent someone home for looking pale... btw I had pink eye and they refused to send me home and I couldn’t call in because I would of lost my job. In hindsight I would of never worked here and the people on the lines don’t care about other employees Cons: Management, short breaks, always cold"
Lunchables Placer (Former Employee) says"I've wasted 5 years of my life working here. The only reason why I was working here is because I needed an income. I can go into detail on what practices they do to get rid of people. Management has no respect for their employees and they are treated like pack mules. This plant is going downhill extremely fast. They can't keep people because employees are not motivated to stay. This company's golden years are gone forever. All this place does is cut, cut, cut. I would personally fell sorry for any of my friends who lost their job if this place shuts down. Any job seeker reading this review, my advice is to you is DO NOT WORK OR APPLY HERE. Your work will not be valued. This place is not worth watching your mental health suffer. Forced overtime is also a problem and this plant is not a family-friendly company Cons: I can name an endless list"
Technical Team Lead (Former Employee) says"would never tell anyone to work there. Supervision is a joke. Thry only care about upper management and not the people on the floor working their butts off. If you go to hr with an issue its like trying to find bigfoot. Thry are never there and if they are they say they will help but when you leave they sweep everything under the rug. Terrible place.... Cons: everything... supervision, hr, and upper management only care for themselves. They keep taking everything away from employees."
Payroll Specialist (Former Employee) says"Unfortunately, this company does not want to invest one cent into their employees. Even for an employee who has been with the company for over ten years. After the pandemic, it appears the company is unstable and not worth putting in the work because there will be no reward. I mean that literally. Having to go through loops and the run around to receive a paycheck that was owed to me. It should not take a company a month to pay their employees. It should not take a company under a union a month to pay their employees. Along with the fact the union is under investigation for fraud. It pains me that hard work and dedication means nothing anymore. Cons: Unreliable"
Channel Lead (Former Employee) says"Some young managers promoted into roles that they do not fully understand the business landscape. This then drives lots of repetition and frustration, leading to good people leaving Cons: Long hours and poor culture"
Sales (Former Employee) says"-Very argumentative work place. Worried about personal goals instead of corporate goals."
Clean skin (Current Employee) says"They are a slave labor company & discriminate. 1st shift is suppose to be 6:30 to 3:30. They will fire you for job abandonment or take penalize you with points if you cant stay until they tell you to leave. Which has been up to 14 hrs."
Training Manager (Former Employee) says"Hypocrisy is the norm, horrible culture, company, work environment. Job performance based on who you, um... do favors for. Hilarious that they are all over LinkedIn with a “can do” America during the pandemic, when they cut 30% of their workforce."

IT Technician (Former Employee) says"This was the absolute worst experience I have had as an employee in my professional career as an IT technician."
Forklift Operator (Former Employee) says"Get ready to be used for the Company to be successful and then abruptly close the plant down and re-locate for cheaper labor while performing jobs that you helped create and maintain!"
PACKER/BOX ROOM ATTENDANT (Former Employee) says"This is not the best company to work for. But overall not the worst company either. It’s pretty decent. You did get yearly raises. Yearly bonuses. But you gone have favoritisms every where. But the pay was fairly to all the employees. The distance were jut a problem."
Catalyst Production Clerk (Current Employee) says"Working long hours and days they don’t care that you have a family you can go in at 5:30 and get off at 7 at night more then one day a week you will do more then one job daily"
Former Employee - R&D says"I worked at Kraft Heinz Company full-time for more than 3 years Cons: -Almost everyone is resourced at 150% and above -Revolving door and not backfilling positions -You'll be asked to do jobs that are multilevel above you and you will not be promoted or compensated -The meritocracy they promote to potential hires is a lie -Reorgs are constant, there were 3 in 2020 alone -KPIs are meant to pit different functions against each other, to ensure full bonuses are not paid out -Upper management has no idea what is going on below them because their reports are too afraid to tell them the truth -No yearly cost of living increases -Strategy is always changing, no consistency on the companies goals -KHC has lost sight of who their consumers are and that's been apparent from recent marketing campaigns"
Former Employee - Associate Systems Manager says"I worked at Kraft Heinz Company full-time for less than a year Cons: Worked 24x7x365. downtown Chicago in the winter"
