Injured on job after 3 years, took a year to get diagnosis, harassed and fired while injured

Systems Service Technician (Former Employee)
Caldwell, ID

I worked at JR Simplot full-time for more than 3 years

ProsTo keep from starving to death.

ConsUnprofessional, filthy, favoritism, nepotism, poor advancement opportunities, racism, cronyism, high injury rates, harassed for reporting injuries, fired while on leave for work injury surgery, said that I had met a 3 strikes termination policy but couldn't produce records of my three work violations. Young healthy people were constantly getting pneumonia from filthy bacteria infested, black mold encrusted factory at a food plant!

Advice to Senior ManagementHave a soul.

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company

I've never been treated with such disrespect.

Anonymous Employee (Former Employee)

I worked at JR Simplot

ProsIt is a large company with good stability. I was drawn to Simplot for the change to move up the corporate ladder and start a life long career.

ConsManagement is inept. While some people are promoted from inside the company, skill sets are not examined before the promotion. I was unfortunately placed in a department of people who did not respect their manager or co-workers. The training I received was half-assed. Senior management let middle management do whatever they pleased without any oversight. This eventually led to me leaving the company. I would suggest strongly researching the position your applying for. Simplot is an EXTREMELY corporate environment down to the tiniest detail with managers who should probably not be managers running the daily operations.

Advice to Senior ManagementTake a more active role in what middle management is doing. This would save time and money with training new employees. A lot of processes are redundant and an unneeded. Make sure the training is given in a thorough manner and not as if the trainer is in a race to finish.

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend
