I am a contractor at KraftHeinz, but very much a part of the team at each site that I work.

Its great to be working with people who I have known for many years and also to meet and help new people within the business.


The company is not perfect but seems to learn from its mistakes. Its fast paced and whilst they will support those struggling, those who perform poorly will be managed out of the business.

There is a reason this company has lost 70% of its market cap value over the last 3 years. The relentless cost cutting and meddling of the global team is exemplary of why this company continues to fail. A place where people struggle on a daily basis to perform even the most rudimentary of tasks.

Phone & Call on major customers, advise on products and promotions status, budget tracking, new and proven product features.

The Heinz brand was very well received by suppliers and Consumers. Heinz planned product blitzes really well with great incentives to drive sales.


Heinz - Excellent company to begin with, There were major changes that came into play when taken over and merged with Kraft.

The key focus was to gain profit very quickly, possibly at the expense of Customers and People.

You do expect change as it is part of our live's, however it doe's need to managed very well.


Tasmania being the smallest State, competing against the larger States was often left out of the Big Picture.


Working on product Blitzes with new products and new user's.

Tasmania won the Best National Heinz Cafe award, One of my customers Won 1st Prize a brand new Car..
Pros
Yearly Team - get to gether, in Sydney.
Cons
Over all they were very flexible and very fair

This company was a great pleasure to work for. Great team, great work, training and good life work balance. It was a shame when the global arm of the company started selling off and outsourcing functions. Otherwise awesome.

Heinz used to be a great company to work for with a fantastic culture and atmosphere, Then they were restructuring and more restructuring and then they were bought by Warren Buffet (3G). They were on 3 levels and now on 1. It is now a very difficult place to work with a high turnover.

Management needs to improve and over come the Brazilian culture. Management expectation is too much without any proper training and guidance.

Those who have good experience and exposure to more multi cultural environment will grow as they would already know how to manage the pressure & task. Excellent company for Graduates as they can learn a lot and move in their career very quick either in the company or outside. I had a massive learning curve in the company as my manager was really supportive and good. Taking leave and going out to do your personnel work is very good as the company gives and understands your private life space.


Issue with salary increase which is achievable only by moving to another department or promotion. Freedom to take the ownership but as mentioned earlier no support or proper training.
Pros
Monthly Birthday Celebration
Cons
High expectation with NO proper training

Management was outstanding in that they had very high people skills which enabled them to deal with every situation without complications. The manager was respected by each and every person. I learned how to run what they called a case packer which packed the food products. I operated a pallet stacking machine as well as lend a hand to the fitters if needed. My co- workers were fantastic, you have issues every now and then but were quickly sorted out. I made many friends. A wonderful company to work for.
Pros
Saftey awards, fantastic yearly awards and Christmas hampers.
Cons
It was shift work but the wages were fantastic.

I worked for H J Heinz for just on 10 years and worked across 4 Australian sites in that time. I absolutely loved going to work every single day I was there. I moved through an array of different positions in my time and was fully supported with training, mentors, guidance and a huge internal network of support in each different area.

They were a smart business; fully understood their global positioning and knew their purpose. The set realistic goals and target which were completely integrated into the day to day business on every level from factory floor to Board Room. They were dedicated to their in almost every aspect (as long as it could be used to the benefit of the business in some manner).


The international business structure was impressive and easily accessible. Even at a Technician level, it was easy to build relationships with senior management in Pittsburg USA. It was definitely an "open door" business and information sharing and communication was the best I've ever seen in my 30 years of working around the globe.


Personal reason were the deciding factor for me leaving the business but I will say, I would return tomorrow without an hesitation at all.
Pros
Great people, great atmosphere, great structure and great business!
Cons
Can not find one to mention!
