Former Dean foods plant in Franklin Park Illinois now Borden has told employees it will close this month
At the time, it seemed like an acceptable option to me, but if I could turn back time, I would never apply here again. This is a terribly managed company where you can only be overworked and undervalued. You will just end up wasting your time here... — read more
