giant eagle ice cream business on the way out !!! DFA must have went for a home run raising the price. And a swing and a miss !!! Taking giant eagle business elsewhere. Sure hope they don't continue this practice or soon we will make nothing!!

If you get hurt on the job don't expect anyone to check on you
Get rid of all of them. They are not doing their jobs. They act like they own everyone for keeping company afloat.
As well as more layoffs. It's obvious that the company has once more decided to cut its way to profit. I'm not sure that's possible, considering that every time they've tried it before it didn't work, which is why we are in this situation as it is... — read more
What is so great about you guys??? All you are is a bunch of mules. Half the time you guys don’t even help load or move a crate at stores. All you do is sign dockets.
While on the front line didn't pay hazard pay worked everyday 6 days a week record numbers of getting milk out and didn't offer nothing but a gallon of milk to each employees we put our life on the line ..
It cannot continue like this
With Dean Foods using all kinds of underhanded methods to get rid of employees - such as firings for no reason - is it even realistic to expect to receive any kind of severance once the next round of layoffs arrives? They don't even seem to care... — read more

Inside sources in Kansas City finished up with a meeting Friday. Tiny morsel has been thrown my way that DFA will be in the process of reorganization of plant labor and to cut staff to do more with less bodies.
when will all the Dollar Generals be gone? Theres alot of concerns about losing these stores. Alot of the new routes consist of schools but with covid-19 some may not open again, or if so they will open late fall, some routes will be 2 days worth of... — read more
Just like Dean Foods. A total waste of time and you wonder how it got to be where it is now!!!??
I work at a different company which also has a very active forum on this website and I've never seen this product before until I got it at a food bank. The plant number is 04-607.
A rash of firings at my location. Some are valid others are almost bogus and made up. We lost 12 guys here in the last 2 weeks. Immediate replacement with temp to hire guys. This is terrible and we are way behind on production. Any other locations... — read more
Guess it ain’t over yet https://www.justice.gov/atr/case/us-and-plaintiff-states-v-dairy-farmers-america-inc-and-dean-foods-company
Anyone heard anything for who had bid on these places or is it all a front for the DOJ to say we tried?

A lot of the beverage and other food vendors are beginning Hazard pay to their drivers as well as warehouse workers. Didn't hear anything of Dean Foods offering this before the buyout. Now that we are DFA there's still no talk of it at all anybody... — read more
What are there plans are they gonna put on new business or are they gonna wait for next corporate stop to open a new location
Dean Foods website has hidden their investor relations page but it can still be found via google. 8K filed on May 7 lists Eric Beringause and one other as only 2 remaining board members and 2 accountants as only 2 remaining executives... — read more
What is so “special” about this facility? Constant talk on here about this place. What is it? Skilled labor, state of the art equip, pay rates, location, family life? Someone please fill me in. This whole board is full of Le Mars.
Just curious. Why does Dean foods continue to post new positions when they don't exist? How long before those jobs are transferred to the DFA site?
Don’t you think DFA should test workers in our plants? A lot of people are not symptomatic and we could be bringing the virus home. Will they test?
With DFA having to now sell off three plants, including Franklin MA, will the original owner, finacial advisor for dfa, Al Bernon purchase back the company. Rumor has it Yes. Any insight?
I just have to say as a consumer. The milk quality and flavor is nothing close to Deans or PL milk from Le Mars. I drank Hiland in Omaha. And was nasty. Good luck trying to sell this garbage product SIOUX FALLS.

I told all of you Hiland was putting in an offer to buy a Deans plant. And look what happened. They bought Sioux Falls and turned it into Prairie Farms. I called this 2 months ago.
Any inside scoop on the plants that were purchased by prairie farms?? Are they gonna come in and cut routes, shutter plants, etc... I was worried at first when dfa passed us over, I do feel somewhat better about prairie.. been with deans a long... — read more
Just wanted to inform all of you before censorship. Again. Not giving out source otherwise I would have no crumbs to feed you on here.
Total bs. Effective May 2020 you get paid the full price for only 85% of your March production BUT they purchased Dean Foods for $433 million. This is what the monopoly of agriculture has created in the dairy, beef, & pork sectors. One or very few... — read more
If the deal must be finalized by Friday, when will be DFA's first official day after new owner?
Can anyone confirm or deny that DFA is shedding DePere and Chemung as assets to make this sale go through. Any thoughts of closing Cedarburg (Kemps) instead. Rumors are that there are interested buyers in Chemung and DePere, I have names but this... — read more
My manager in Texas is being let go tomorrow to make room for 3 demotions above him. He’s the best manager I’ve had I feel so bad for him because they told him last week and are making him work. I’m worried I’m next or at least a pay cut. Maybe I... — read more
If you can answer, what is DFA wages?
DFA has a long history of price fixing. How many times have they been sued by the different states/DOJ?
I don't care if the DFA deal goes through or if the Borden merger goes through. I just want those stock prices to go back up!
Walgreens has switched to Crystal Creamery.
I dont see how the DOJ can approve DFA buying Dean Foods now that there is an alternative plan that wont result in a monopoly in the dairy industry. Independent farmers are very worried that if DFA buys Dean Foods, their farms will be have to either... — read more
