Current Employee - Brand Manager says"I have been working at Pepperidge Farm full-time Cons: New leadership and lots of change for many years in a row now. I think most people came here because they wanted to do meaningful work with a great work/life balance. New leadership doesn't seem to care for employees the same way and wants to turn this company into Mondalez or Frito Lay. They also seem to value outside talent more than grooming and advancing the employees they currently have."

District Manager (Former Employee) says"Extreme lack of respect for employees and the talents they posses. The company took a very hard stance that they no longer need experienced people managing the business and thus cut everyone's salaries by roughly 30% to provoke them to leave. Their goal is to replace all experienced managers with inexperienced less expensive employees. No training or development is provided - its truly sink or swim. Cons: Zero work life balance"

Production helper (Former Employee) says"Management sucks all white coats and white shirts. You can't go to them with a problem cause they are the ones that tell everything. Its alot of favoritism, sexism and all going on. Management sleeps with the employess and they then get better treatment. The supervisors lie on the employees . Its a descent paying job but no family time . But not a good place to work cause its always drama from the leads or supervisors telling lies on the employees and they dont know how to talk to the employees . They like to scream at you and HR here allows it to happen always covering up wrongdoings. This is the worst place to work until they get rid of all of HR and supervisors. Cons: No pto, short breaks and work 6 days mandatory ."

Only up to 12 hrs shift tho. They will also make you work 6 days and its all without prior notice or a heads up. Job is so boring you start to fall asleep half the time depending what you do. Warehouse is hot and dusty. Have to wear ear plugs and hairnet along with your safety glasses and nowadays face mask of course. Cons: Schedule. Everything. Breaks."
Line Production Worker (Former Employee) says"They don't tell you that the machines break down about every 30 mins or less and that you have to bust your butt to keep their bread off the floor cause the machine operators take their time to get the bread machines back up and running. The people hired on hate the temporary workers that come in their."
Shipping and Receiving Associate (Former Employee) says"I worked in shipping for 3 summers under great management. Worked there again for 2 years, same Department, under new management. Easily worst boss I've ever had. Favoritism abounded, very spiteful. Other departments were nice to work in from what I heard. Recommend not working in shipping department on 2nd shift due to management. Good company overall, seemed to care about employees, and make great products. Once again, I cannot stress enough the horrible work culture the 2nd shift shipping manager creates. Cons: Poor management"
Temp Worker (Former Employee) says"was told i'd be getting hired in, when things came to, they hired in some guy who knew a bunch of people there. yeah its one of those "you gotta know people to get in" type of places. Cons: bad management terrible pay leadership is unorganized"
Berks and Beyond Temp (Former Employee) says"I am giving a bad review because I worked there as a temp and was well over the contracted hours I needed to be hired. They would simply not hire me. Which irritated me because I had no health insurance and really needed it at the time. I did not miss any days or show up late until I realized they were playing with me. And ultimately I left because I couldn't afford to pay half of the petty amount of money I made monthly to pay for essential meds and healthcare, along with paying rent an surviving. They seemed to have preferential treatment and that urked me. I would recommend working there to anybody as long as you are able to stomach getting abused as a temp. Cons: Being a temp for as long as they desire (some people I met were going on 3+ years)"
Task management (Former Employee) says"I wouldn't recommend working at Pepperidge farm. I worked there as a temp and never go hired after a lot of great reviews by my supervisors. I wouldn't go back."
Territory Sales Representative (Former Employee) says"My manager had no managerial experience. Therefore, the training, communication and expectations were incredibly mismanaged. Even though my training was sub-par I was the one used as the scapegoat for his lack of experience. Cons: Poor management, training, and communication."
Depot Manager (Former Employee) says"Pepperidge Farm is a affiliate of Campbell Soup Company, which was to possible be bought out but failed, they lay off constantly while paying Top Executives top dollar, and the Salary is way below the national average for their jobs. They have long term employees however they do not like change and when recommending something you are chastised and let go. Cons: Upper Management only for themselves"
Machine Operator (Former Employee) says"Management by production numbers. Cons: Management doesn't respect employees, HR doesn't want to hear about management issues."
S.M.S. says"Today, Friday, December 4, 2020 is National Cookie Day. Pepperidge Farm was suppose to start at 8 am on their website for people to sign up for a FREE plate and a tin of 5 different cookies. They stated limited numbers. I got on their website at 8:05 am to sign up for their FREEBIES and to my surprise they were already done. I WAS a true loyal customer. Every time I bought cookies is was theirs. NOT anymore. What false advertising -- when they said limited availablity, I guess they weren't kidding -- what did they give away -- 1 plate and 1 tin of cookies?"
