I have been working at ConAgra Foods full-time (less than an year)

Pros

Great benefits, lots of paid time off early on, great safety protocols, company seems to actually put forth an effort in making it a good place to work.

Cons

Constant lay-offs, being sent home after working two hours, lack of communication about future plans of the plant and what it means to current employees. Some supervisors treat employees as if they were animals.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Be more up front with your employees, whether it's good news or bad news.

    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.
