    I have been working at Hormel full-time (more than an year)


    Lots of exposure to executives and responsibility at a young age. Stable company without a lot of turnover so you never feel scared to lose your job when the economy dips.


    Old school, traditional culture with a few outdated systems and processes. Corporate office is in a small, rural town in the Midwest. Lots of relocation required for advancement

    Positive Outlook
