Former Employee - Production Supervisor in Russellville, AR

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

Pros

Vacation negotiable usually to 3 weeks.
Peers are generally good workers
Career advancement is easy because the people above you are idiots.

Cons

Mediocre pay
Work is 12-16 hour days Monday-Saturday.
You will work every Saturday
Union relationships are horrible and you can't fire anyone who is doing things blatantly wrong.
Benefits are through a subsidiary of Con Agra and are expensive and cover absolutely nothing.
Company wants to coach every employee 1000 times before they take action.
Work is in HOT non air conditioned environment where team members sweat on food while making it.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Clean house, change policies, and do business the way it should be conducted.

    Pros

    Career opportunities: rotations and training in new areas encouraged but not required if you prefer your area.
    Pay/Benefits: The compensation and benefits are good for the area
    Flexible work environment: The IT department allows telecommuting one day a week, and has hotel cubes instead of assigned desks so you can move where you sit according to who you are working with. Flexible hours are available to work around things like day care, as long as you work during "core times" you can come into work at 6am or 9am.

    Cons

    The IT department has been known for having too many irons in the fire. There are plans in place to improve workloads, and it is getting better, but it's still a work in progress.
