I worked at ConAgra Foods as an intern (less than an year)

Pros

Most interns work in Omaha at the corporate headquarters, but about a dozen or so work at the manufacturing facilities around the nation. I was one of the non-Omaha interns in the summer of 2009. The intern program as a whole is second to none, and dwarfs the Management Trainee program I went into after college for another company. I was flown into Omaha three or four times that summer to participate in intern events, the college world series (which was a blast) and give a presentation to the higher ups.

On a day to day basis I learned how to operate the manufacturing facility, which was a mountain of knowledge necessary to succeed in my field. I was given a couple projects to work on through out the summer as well.

Pay was very competitive. I was able to pay for 2 semesters of school after working that summer.

Can't speak to benefits since I wasn't eligible.

Although my boss could be sort of a dick head, and was always extremely stressed out it was a great experience.

Cons

None that I can speak to. Only worked at ConAgra for 3 months.

    I worked at ConAgra Foods full-time (more than an year)

    Pros

    Hours and pay are terrific as are benefits, they pay according to the responsibilities you take on even if you don't get a new title. Company culture is GREAT!

    Cons

    Moving up can be difficult because not many people leave, to move up you have to rely on growth.
