    Pros

    The benefits alone are worth working here.You get raises every 6 months and it is a very nice place to work.

    Cons

    I have no cons at working at Smithfield because it is an awesome place to work.If you haven't tried working here then you don't need to say anything bad about it.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    I think all of the management are doing an awesome job at the location where I work and I wouldn't want to work anywhere else.

    I have been working at Smithfield Foods

    Pros

    The people there are fun, funny, enthusiastic. Upper management is understandable. They help you through your professional growth. Great place to work.

    Cons

    The only negative feedback I would give is the work. Work was difficult but had to be done. It was necessary.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Extremely professional and supportive. They treat you like humans, not like machines. They are extremely friendly and kind. Great people.
