    Pros

    It's an excellent learning environment for anyone dedicated to strive for more

    Cons

    I really enjoy working here, so far no cons other than the often very long work day

    Advice to Management

    Management, keep up the great work, but try to listen more to the complaints of your hourly employees, they are the backbone of this company

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at Sanderson Farms (New Orleans, LA) in February 2015.

    Interview

    First experience with this company was at their SuperChicken Road Show--a college recruitment event. They basically wine and dine you (travel, hotel, food) on day one. Day two-plant and hatchery tour, lunch provided. Then tell you if they're interested they will contact you. I got called TWO YEARS LATER! I was invited to an interview at a different plant at my own expense. Did another plant tour. Noticed just like in the other plant I toured very few minorities in middle to upper level management. One on one interview. Offerd to reimburse me for gas expenses. Told me they will contact me within two weeks to let me know of their hiring decision. Two weeks pass, nothing. So I sent a follow up email and the recruiter replied with a lie and said we haven't done interviews yet. Wow! To me this company has serious integrity issues. I suspect if you're white and/or from Mississippi you stand a better chance of being hired for this position.
