    I worked at Sanderson Farms (more than 10 years)


    Working with a lot of good honest hardworking people that make you feel like family.


    The challenges of working for different supervisors with poor management skills, and people skills. Some managers in higher position understood the fact that it takes respect to get respect. I mean everyone is grown and you can't make or intimidate a person to do anything. What's going to happen is that they will lose respect for you and the company. A lot of them let the authority go to their heads and that's not a very good thing to do.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Whether a person is right or wrong they still deserve respect and it takes respect to get respect, As a result of, you probably get better work performance and more production out of your employees.

    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 3 daysinterviewed at Sanderson Farms.

    Interview Details

    The interview is very basic. I did not receive any behavioral questions. The manager just got a feel for who I was and told me the expectations. He explained the position but I would not say I truly knew what I was getting into after leaving. You should come in dressed professionally and bring a resume. Ask a lot of questions because if you don't you will leave without enough information. Once hired you will begin rotations through each department. Expect to work all kinds of shifts and positions. You will be asked to fill in for hourly employees. Some of the position can be potentially dangerous and extremely labor intensive. You will get dirty and when I say dirty I mean disgusting. Overtime will be required almost weekly. There are no forty hour weeks for a trainee.
