Thread regarding Dean Foods Co. layoffs

No end in sight

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 "doing better" its from them firing people that have been here a long time and cutting corners! HR is a total joke! nothing here in Dallas is being fixed! Maintenance isn't getting any parts!? How can it get fixed?? I can't imagine how they keep passing any inspections? Where Is OSHA? the management that they have replaced old management with knows nothing about dairy and will in time get them in trouble with several different agencies! Total incompetence! it's mind blowing! It's the bottom of the barrel at this point with who they are hiring to manage/supervise! so from there of course it's going to go downhill! Mr. Schepps would be rolling over in his grave to know how far down this company has went!

There sure are a lot of cry babies here. If you are getting let go take it as a sign that you are the problem with Deans and not the BIG boys trying to fix the mess that all the old-timers created over the years. This industry is dynamic and always moving. Everybody getting laid-off is getting let go for a reason. Seems like Deans waited too long to let the dead wood go!

I know! I like how he is "working" at corporate for 2.5 years and sees a "bright future". Corporate is like a cancer. They produce nothing, make insane wages and interfere constantly with tenured folks in the "supply chain" that actually know what the heck they are doing.

How many plants do they have to close before they no longer need a skysc-aper of fools in Dallas? SMH....

We were recycling paper clips, trying to pay bills, while the id--ts in corporate are adding a new vice president ( former Pepsi failure ) at some ungodly 6 figure salary every few months. Only to see them fly the coop after 3 years after accomplishing nothing aside from flying around and playing golf.

This person is in for a rude awakening this year.

Scozzafava was named the worst CEO in 2017. He ran the furniture company into the ground before coming to Dean’s.

Poor guy even had to sell his $3Million mansion in Illinois to move to Dallas to run Dean’s into the ground.

His son is an analyst for some bank. Wonder if he told Ralph to sell his stock yet?

All of the HR business partners have left. That should tell you everything you need to know.

Anybody know Jose Motta? Guy has sold most of his stock over the last 12 months.

"Getting rid of the old baggage and getting fresh young men and women to move Deans forward is a big deal."

This seems to imply that age is being taken into consideration in the layoff decisions. An age discrimination case would indeed be a big deal.

LOL...young MBAs trying to sell the latest round of layoffs as being what was going to keep the stock above $20 and fix all the company's problems was what led me to finally leave 4 years ago. Well, that and the other dumb MBA driven initiatives that cost more money to implement than they ever saved.

I've been working at corporate for 2 1/2 years now and it seems that many old timers are very bitter. Not sure what their problem is but I see a bright future for DF. Things are getting better and I think the recent layoffs are a good thing for the corporation. Getting rid of the old baggage and getting fresh young men and women to move Deans forward is a big deal.

These Dallas guys dropped tens of thousands on hunting trips going after Jason’s Deli instead of focusing on Wal Mart.

This is the result of poor management at the expense of tenured employees.
