Former Employee - Team Leader Quality in Hermiston, OR

I worked at ConAgra Foods full-time (more than 3 years)

Pros

Some ability to affect change in the plant at a supervisory level
Good culture of quality in the plant
Reasonable efforts to train and build talent in-house
24/7 operation on shift work means a reliable schedule of 40-50hrs/week
Time off / Work scheduling is very flexible

Cons

Managers promoted too quickly up the ranks leads to some poor plant leadership
Too much red tape & delay on fixing problems / not enough communication on spending priorities

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Have a 15 min meeting each week to listen to ideas from your sups and give a "yes, no, let me think about it" answer to their ideas.
Walk the floor on all shifts, especially when large issues arise
Only ask of your workers what you are willing to follow-through on - rolling out a new program might look good for you in the short run, but it won't pay dividends if people don't feel like their efforts are worth the sweat they give it.

    Pros

    It was a well paying job and close to home. I really injoyed my job there

    Cons

    They sold the company and now expect us to re-apply to do the same job we were doing for years with alot!!! less money. We worked our a--es off for them and now we are left with nothing and no place to work that pays for the traveling we have to do.
