"I've been working at DF for a little over 3 years. Even though the company has been going thru some changes I felt I was always recognized. I had great opportunities to grown that boosted my professional experience and career."

"Lots of overtime. Great benefits. Company has been downsizing for years. Losing market share. No spare parts. Massive employee turnover. Talented people have left or been fired. General mgt is sadly quite hostile."

Dean Foods Employee
in Fort Worth, TX

"This company is one of the worse I have ever worked at. The management team is very unprofessional and have no leadership skills. They thrive on gossip and never give feedback on work performance. They have a buddy system in place and they treat the contractors like a doormat. They have supervisors who spread the personal information of employees. They allow cursing and disrespect among team members. The training is horrible and after being in that hell hole for 6 months I was let go with no warning and given no real reason. I would not recommend this company to anyone who is looking for a stable work environment with great management. The entire management team is horrible."

"A lot of turnover in this office - employees are hard to get along with. What I was told in interview process was not viable. Very frustrating!"

"Office personnel are very hostile. Impossible to train in the atmosphere created by the personnel. My trainer was irritable, impatient and so controlling she would not allow me to learn her job. She wants to be irreplaceable. Huge Ego. Supervisors ignored training process as they don't even know how to do the job either. Not an experience I ever want to have again!! No teamwork."

"The company is really great and the staff is even better. The safety plan that they have is great. The daily schedule is designed to get things done at a sufficient time. Everything is covered from processing to batching. The cip-sip procedures are great as well."

Maintenance Technician
in Rochester, IN

"I worked at the dairy processing plant in Rochester, IN for less than a year as a maintenance technician. It was not so bad in the first few months, but progressively worsened. I worked 3rd shift with only one other person, although I was informed prior to employment, more would be hired. They are a union and their points system is beyond ridiculous. I loved the work, hated the environment."

Continuous Improvement Manager
in Orlando, FL

"I worked for DF since January 2012. I was a great experience. I learned a lot. The company has close to 65 facilities in the US. I was in charge of supporting 3 plants in the Florida market. The two plants in Central Florida are well aligned with the Lean program. The other Florida plant is moving in the right direction, slowly but steady"
