Yoplait Sucks Customer Reviews and Feedback

From Everything.Sucks

Yoplait ( YOH-play, French: [jɔplɛ]) is the largest franchise brand of yogurt, jointly owned by United States–based food conglomerate General Mills and French dairy cooperative Sodiaal.

Gabriel Jimenez for the blog Mark Growth mentioned 3 reasons why Yoplait sucks: Anatomy of a marketing disaster, "It’s not often, that a brand does such an incredible marketing disaster that’s just flat out wrong from every possible angle you could look at. But this time, we got the Yoplait disaster with an overwhelmingly sexist marketing campaign. Let’s see why it’s such a fail and why Yoplait’s campaign is so offensive. Yoplait Mexico put out a commercial to empower women. It starts with a bunch of women in an Irish pub singing an irishy tune, and toasting with Yoplait Yogurt. That’s not the offensive part, though. Unless you’re Irish and feel like they’re appropriating your drinking culture. It feeds off shallow outdated stereotyping, it has no idea who their target is and it had indescribably bad timing. Why is that a problem? Well, 91% of women don’t feel understood by advertisers. And these women make 70%-90% of all the purchasing decisions in the average american household. See where this is going? We keep talking to a seriously big target in an alien language they don’t really care for. This is why sexist marketing campaigns like Yoplait’s disaster efforts keep happening, missing the mark, issuing an empty apology and moving on to the next condescending ad."

Current Employee - Machine Operator says

"Horrible management and leadership. No recognition or advancement. You have to go through a year of probation before they even consider you as a candidate for the job. Also they rely on your peers to give you the recognition."

Former Employee - Anonymous Employee says

"Vicious management meant the worst work environment I have experienced in twenty years. High expectations, no support and absolutely no reward. No trust of staff and staff are given no opportunity to work independently so development is stunted."

Electrical Process Technician says

"Work to many hours. No work life balance."

Production says

"More forced overtime than you wish you would have. If you volunteer over every other day they can still force you in-between those days . Over-ins for overtime. work second shift stay until 3am and have you back in at 11am. the company has a tendency to hire a bunch of employees and then firing a bunch at 90 days saying it's due to poor performance or whatever their excuse is without a verbal or written warning after receiving a good eval 30 days prior. It seems to be a general practice that's well known around at least the Big Rapids area."

Maintenance Mechanic (Former Employee) says

"I worked there for a long time. The plant Manager was the reason almost every maint. mechanic left the place. Good friends, good mechanics at the time, who knows now."

Utility (Former Employee) says

"I was sexually assulted at work and my manager witnessed it and lied about it. My manager deliberately sabotaged my career and wrongfully terminated me after I turned the situation over to corporate and the EEOC. The company covered up the entire incident.Good paying jobPoor management and no integrity"

Production Worker (Current Employee) says

"Management is the worst. Say they care about your saftey but really could care less. All management is gone by 1-2pm Friday. You are forced to work 70+ hour work weeks and weekends. Also you can be forced into overtime where you only have 8 hours of actual off time before they can make you come back. If you care about your life outside of work don't work here."

Promoteur des ventes (Former Employee) says

"Management à l'américaine, c'est un peu marche ou crève, si vous avez la chance d'avoir un bon compte clé comme binome cela peut petre intéressant sinon entreprise à fuir, aucun équilibre vie pro vie privé, votre compte clé se permet de vous appeler en dehors des horaires de travail, image négative de l'entreprise donc très dur de négocier avec les chefs de rayon/secteur pour un salaire à peine plus élevé que le SMIC.voiture de fonctionSalaires, notoriété de la marque, manque d'empathie de la hiérarchie"

Promoteur des ventes (Former Employee) says

"Une entreprise qui à grand besoin de se remettre en question : La force de vente terrain est totalement épuisé, démotivation des collaborateurs qui ne souhaitent plus s'investir pour une entreprise qui ne respecte pas ses engagements et ses valeurs, de beaux discours au RH lors des recrutements.. vu le peu de candidats c'est loin d'être étonnant, pour preuve des postes vacants pendant des mois sur l'ensemble du territoire , bienvenue dans une entreprise ou vous faites du multi catégoriel n'importe comment ! travail bâclé aucune crédibilité face à nos interlocuteurs en magasin. Revoyez votre politique RH et surtout salariale. Journée type dés 5H mise en rayon, un peu de surgelé , un peu de yaourt , un peu de cuisine du monde , un peu de conserve, un peu de barre de céréales , bref vous courez dans tous les sens pour ensuite faire votre travail de commercial en SM et référencer des nouveaux produits et atteindre vos objectifs. Aucun objectif SMART , juste de la RENTABILITE. Une fusion totalement raté avec des collaborateurs pro Yoplait et d'autres Pro General Mills. Pour courir plus vite vous avez un avantage de taille vous pouvez compter sur la voiture de fonction avec carte essence illimitébons de réduction, équilibre vie privé vie proOrganisation de la force de vente"

Promoteur des ventes chef secteur (Former Employee) says

"Un Conseil fuyez !!! Vous perdrez votre temps et votre réputation dans le métier de la grande distribution. Pour un grand groupe agro alimentaire on s attend à de l organisation et de la compétence, mais ce sont bien ces 2 qualités qui manquent à cette société. Tout va commencer par une cession de recrutement mal organisé : on vous présente l historique du groupe le matin et l après midi des entretiens, mais entre 11h30 et minimum 14h (si vous avez la chance de passer le premier) on vous laisse attendre dehors. Pendant ces entretiens vous vous apercevez qu il y a des personnes pro Yoplait et pro general mills (en clair c est la guerre)!!! De plus vous voyez de suite l incompétence des recruteurs (peu de temps passés dans la boite et question peu pertinente concernant votre métier). Vous devez faire beaucoup de rayons mais en faisant n importe quoi... Les chefs de rayons DETESTENT General Mills, vous êtes mal perçu et en plus vous êtes pas payés à la hauteur de votre travail (500 euros en moins des autres groupes leader dans 'agro alimentaire). Bref pas assez de lignes pour expliquer qu il vaut mieux aller ailleurs... Pour finir General Mills est maintenant mal vu sur votre CV car la réputation en magasin a fait son chemin."

Skilled Utility Machine Operator (Current Employee) says

"Hours vary from week to week but most weeks are very long 60 to 70 hours long.Your shift work is either 3am to 3pm or 7pm to 7am .Not much notice for the forced overtime,which makes it hard to do anything with your family.Great payLong hours, No family life"

Line Operator/Forklift Operator (Former Employee) says

"Every Shift does a C.I.L and P.C.L check list for production upon quality. Depending on the area positioned your at that day, rotation required. I ran the 6oz yogurt cups of Yoplait.. 4 positions to be trained on, I mastered all 4 positions! Making the cups(1.A Sonic Operator)/ Making the Yogurt(2.Fruitskid Operator) or Filling the cups with product(3.Filler Operator) Then the packaging of yoplait yogurt cups(4.Casepacker Operator). Sent to Shipping. different position different area. Quality checks every 30 minutes or 15. 10 checks in all for each positions. I was as well as the Training coordinator, for 18 full time employees on my shift. Daily job, weekly/ monthly reportings. I Loved my work. Some places were more colder than the other the hardest part was the quality of yoplait yogurt. Getting it right keeping tasty every minute of the day. but the production work of making a product keeps yourself important and on your toes.Good Benefits, Overtime if needed & Good team operators.Managements, Operators make the yogurt, Yes, As well as faulted for their machines created not keeping production on high levels, The faster they requested production upon the yogurt the bitter it got, (Management), Not the operator."

General Mills (Former Employee) says

"How to learn how to place stuff in a box and had to take stuff out and put it on a conveyor belt and we had the work 12 hour a day 7 days a week but somedays we got off early if we was done with are working"

Coordinateur sécurité (Former Employee) says

"Yoplait est une entreprise a taille humaine malgré son importance. Ce fut pour moi une expérience enrichissante en tant qu'alternance."

Machine Operator (Current Employee) says

"The work isn’t bad at all. In fact, it can be challenging- yet fun. Always learning something new within food manufacturing. Good pay for the hard work we do. A LOT of 12 hr shifts. You are only allowed approximately 9 days off work a YEAR. Nothing is ‘secret’ at this facility. Don’t expect to tell even HR something personal without them a) not caring and B) having your personal life showcased for all your coworkers to hear about. lifelifetrickle down for all your coworkers to hear about."

Packaging Machine Operator (Current Employee) says

"I worked for Yoplait for years, and am still called by the wrong name. People have medical emergencies and unless they have saved one of their few personal days, they are given points regardless of how serious the condition is. The ups and downs of the job are like a rollercoaster. Management doesn't care about the hourly employees, unless you're super high in seniority. They're great at pretending though. Also, the amount of hours worked are insane. They force a lot of overtime and can make you work 12 hour days with only 8 hours in between. Working here is great, short-term. It's impossible to have a normal family life here.PayShort breaks, long hours, no work/life balance"

Maintence Mechanic (Current Employee) says

"the schedule is very hard to adjust too. rotating shift going from days to night keeps the body and mind tired. the schedule is not designed for someone with family responsibility.goood payweek days off"

Chef de secteur GMS (Current Employee) says

"Des marques fun à revendre en magasins. Une méthode de vente très efficace."

Robyn Yargeau says

"My family and I purchase about 40 yogurts a week, a total of 30 of them were bad (tasted like chemicals). I called to let them know about the issue, all the same kind with the same expiration date. They told me they could only refund me for two yogurts! Not good customer loyalty at all. We will no longer be purchasing their yogurt."
