    I have been working at John Morrell full-time for more than 10 years

    Pros

    In my 10+ years at JMFG, I have been given many opportunities to progress in my career and learn new areas of the business. JMFG is good about promoting employees internally and across business lines. Employees can go from plant type positions to corporate or different departments if the skill set matches the opportunity.

    Cons

    Not a lot of attention or opportunity for formal training exists. Much of the training is OTJ. With multiple companies under one umbrella, there is a lot of confusion and different standards/policies/procedures. Would serve the company well to look at best in class and standardize across the organization. Women in the organization do not seem to be offered executive level opportunities.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Manager training would be beneficial as well as career progression/career pathing for employees so they know where the next step is for them.

    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 3 weeks - interviewed at John Morrell.

    Interview Details

    Pretty typical. There was nothing new or original. Their interviewing skills were basic at best, but for the most part outdated. The line of questioning had little to do with the position and involving so many people in the process only reinforced an over inflated sense of importance in some of the minions.

    Interview Questions
    • All basic. On genius asked me if I could be any piece of office equipment what would I be.   Answer Question
