On 7/18/20 I was running a fever of 100.3° this is a risk factor for covid-19 by any companies standards besides B&G they say 100.4 I attempted to call in out of caution.

Filler Operator (Current Employee) says"Clabber girl is a joke since B&G bought them. They work you 7 days a week, management is awful, they punish their employees like children for asking questions, benefits are awful and they don't care about their employees. This is the worst place in town! But hey they pay good so I guess that is something NOT!PayEverything else"

Regional Sales Manager (Current Employee) says"Too much drama within the organization, too many cliques and if you don’t belong to them, you’ll never move up the ladder. Many employees that work in the office are like zombies not very helpful in your job. Too much daily confusion and too much daily stresses about making the numbers with their declining sales and horrible brands nobody wants. Competition is killing themHours are flexibleNo back up from your managers"
Order Picker (Former Employee) says"During the time I worked there two memorable incidents took place, the first was that a coworker (someone that I considered to be a friend) was fired by a former HR manager because he had run out of FMLA hours caring for his wife, he had become ill himself and was unable to come to work, he was fired and died the next day. The second memorable incident was the day a bomb threat was called in to the facility, none of the employees were either informed about it or evacuated, the packaging lines never stopped running. These incidents were typical of the company culture, how 'the help' were thought of and treated."
Operations & Development Manager (Former Employee) says"Daily multi-unit operations. Manage different locations Must be on call in case anything happens and micromanaged must always be available day or night and be ready to change your day in a min notice."
Glass inspector (Former Employee) says"Not a good place to work, everything you do is wrong. They will no hesitate to tell you that they can fire you, just as quick as they hired you. They have no respect for anyone but themselves."

Worker 1 (Former Employee) says"I worked there for about 6 months and I never, never found anybody that enjoyed their job or the atmosphere. Horrible corporate trainer for maintenance and the maint. managers do not last more than 1.5 years. It is a very broken down place that runs at about 40-60 percent efficiency. Very old machinery and so, so hot in warmer weather. Upper management just wants you to do your job and that is all. Don't complain or you will be replaced.nonetoo many too mention."

Laborer (Current Employee) says"Hands down the worst place I have worked in my life. Tiny place, not even a place to sit down and relax on your short break times because they force so many people to work 12 hour shifts and not enough seats in the break room. A lot of people are miserable because they work 72 hours a week and every Saturday. The climate in Stoughton is volatile. Line supervisors are powerless. onlyythere to force you to work 12hours"
Previous employer (Former Employee) says"Watch out. B and G foods in Stoughton WI has some serious issues. They can't keep employees. Forced working 72 hour week overtime. Management is horrible. Training is slim to none. Expected to get it all right away and on your own in less than 8 hours in that area. Stressful environment. Unhappy employees. Machines breaking down. Wasted materials. If you value your happiness and home life, DO NOT APPLY!!!!"
Ex Employee (Former Employee) says"This place sucks. Yes steady workflow but management suck. They show you and 5 minutes later you on your own. All different cultures. No supervision....a line leader (stupervisor) caught a quality inspector giving oral to another employee...lines not able to flow smoothly because line leaders, PMOs, etc. go on their breaks but others have to get them as they come OR ARE FIRED. Labor board needs to pop up especially on 3rd"
anthony says"I bought a jar of Polaner Jelly and it was so terrible I couldn't keep it but I had not saved my sales receipt (who thought jelly could be so bad). I tried the online consumer affairs forms but time after troubleshooting time I was unable to jump through the computer hoops and I could not submit a complaint. Then I called the company. I explained that the jelly I bought was terrible and I also tried to explain that their on-line service was defective. Frustrating conversation but they said they would send me $3.99. I waited two months; no check. I wrote to the company and got a response that they will send me the $3.99. I waited a month; no check. I just wrote a new note and god knows what they won't bring. Was $3.99 too much for them to act on in an attempt to please a customer who is, you can imagine, beyond pleasing."
