Too many weak minded and soft flakes on here. You never seen what a real board is like when people hit you hard below the belt with posts.
Topics regarding layoffs at Dean Foods Co.
Deans has been spoon feeding too many people for way to long. The porridge has run out and now the new Deans top brass is finally trying the clean the mess. If you are getting fired look at it as a sign to your new bright future.
Is it true that if we end 30 days under $1 for stock value, we'll get delisted from the stock exchange (I think we are on NYSE)... What's the rule here? I think it's good that we are now back over one dollar as I think the clock resets, but you never... read more
Company is going downhill at a fast pace! Major issues are being looked over, considered not relevant?! I mean major issue not anything trivial, I've worked here for almost 20 years (Dallas area) if there is any profit it's not from the company... read more
Saputo has said "No thanks" to a potential buyout. https://seekingalpha.com/news/3469801-saputo-takes-pass-dean-foods
It was as low as a $1.01 at one point. The so called story of a Canadian company buying Dean's started in March. Its now June and nothing. It was all a cover story by corporate to keep people from quitting en mass. The surveyors that have visited... read more
Laid off after 26 years of hard back breaking work in favor of temps. Unbelievable!!! Deans rather have temps then paying top dollar for vets.
Thoughts are that Dean Foods has cut so much already that the only places left to cut are labor costs. And they've already cut labor costs so much through previous rounds of cuts, that any more labor cuts are just going to result in service becoming... read more
Dean Foods will be filing for Chapter 7, not Chapter 11. I see liquidation in our near future...
Dean is not going to file BK. Worse case scenario is they sell off parts and become a smaller company. Dean is fixing the bottom line by laying off employees. That's necessary for a any company when the market changes. Sorry folks it's just a part of... read more
Ralph can ya submit your resignation and hopefully we can get a new guy that can turn this ship around. Take your money and run . It's time!!!!
Company going down in flames and so are your careers.
Just let go after 21 years at Deans. You better make sure you have at least 2 months salary in savings and a fresh resume. Because you will be next.
I thought Trump was trying to drain the swamp of corruption? Where is he at to come and save Deans like he did for GM huh??? I bet most of you bought into his lies of making this country great again?? Now you will be waiting for unemployment checks... read more
After 30+ yrs. I left Dean Foods. 20 yrs. with Suiza/DF the rest with the same company but different owners. I was fortunate enough to work for some Great Leaders. Hall of Famers who knew the business and how to treat people. Then there were Leaders... read more
More layoffs. Worst run company in American
New round of layoffs came this week in the Chicago/Milwaukee areas. At least 10 others besides myself. Not completely unexpected, but was hoping to hang on until 2020. Big announcement coming today 5/17 internally. Probably more “restructuring”... read more
I'm saddened to see some of my oldest friends (yes friends - we stopped being just coworkers long time ago) leave Dean Foods because they no longer see a future here. I know that's probably the smartest move right now, but I still can't get myself to... read more
Deans selling off Friendly's plants. Turned down multiple offers. I bet Mike Wells from Blue Bunny low balling Deans.
In case of bankruptcy, do we still receive severance? The way things have been going for Dean Foods lately, I'm starting to think bankruptcy might happen after all. So if it does happen, it would be good to know where it would leave us employees in... read more
LOOKS LIKE WE ARE AS UNWANTED AS THE RED HEADED STEPCHILD!! APPARENTLY AT THIS PRICE NO ONE CAN SEE ANY VALUE IN A BUY OUT!!! THANKS FOR SHOVING IT RIGHT UP OUR KIESTER!!! DRAINED TO THE LAST DROP ?
Canadian giant Saputo about to own Dean Foods and own YOU as employees. Better get out while you still have good benefits and good wages.
20+ Year employee in logistics and have never seen the the volume so small (not even half the volume left in the Midwest). 5.8 million people in the state of Wisconsin and we have SIX salesman to cover it all!! Dean's has lost so many customers... read more
Do you think it'll happen?
Latest plant closures were the last nail in the coffin. The sad thing is management acts like what they did solved our problems - when in reality things went to hell. Any gain was short-term - something that long-term well-being of the company will... read more
Probabiliy of Bankruptcy for Dan Food - this is something that should be taken with a grain of salt https://www.macroaxis.com/invest/ratio/DF--Probability-Of-Bankruptcy
With the announcement of Deans in financial trouble. I wonder if Le Mars is a target? Most of the vet employees make over $23.00 an hour. Including jobs as easy as blowmold and filler ops who just watch jugs fill up. Even caught the panelboard op... read more
LOOKS LIKE THE NEW CLOWNS IN CHARGE HAVE NO IDEA WHAT'S GOING ON !! TIME FOR A FIRE SALE ?? LOOKS LIKE THEY WILL BE TAKING ANOTHER CHUNK OUT OF THE COMPANY!! TRUELY A SAD DAY FOR THE REST OF US
True or False?
Country Delight Inc., (President Joe McMahon) which transports about 52 million pounds of milk a year and serves about 400 stores in the Chicago area, is looking to buy the former Dean Foods plant in Huntley with the hope of expanding distribution... read more
We just lost half of our Costco accounts to another dairy and we are expecting nine layoffs. Does anyone know the future of Alta dena North?
WHAT THE HECK ARE THESE NEW CLOWNS UP TO ? DOES ANYONE HAVE ANY IDEAS? LOOKS LIKE I WILL BE GOING DOWN WITH THE SHIP !!!! I AM NOT THE CAPTAIN JUST A PEON LMAO
Is Dean Foods really this desperate to cut costs? Layoffs, plant closures, outsourcing… What is next? Reducing or finding loopholes in benefits they are providing is old news, but even there they’ve been really pushing it lately. Maybe, just maybe... read more
I’m sure there are a lot of companies where you would be overworked for nickel and dimes, but at least at them, one could have a stable job and not worry if his position is going to be terminated, outsourced, will his plant close etc. At Dean Foods... read more
My time with Deans is coming to an end. Over the past 15years I have watched this company fall apart at a rapid pace. Management that has absolutely no clue how to run a dairy. Watching customers leave day in and day out. Being forced to do more work... read more
I'm worried because two of our managers left in the last two weeks, both voluntarily. One went to another Dean Foods plant and the other quit. This has me paranoid - do they know something we don't? Is there anybody here from previously closed plants... read more
