I worked at ConAgra Foods full-time for more than 8 years

Pros

They pay pretty well for the manufacturing industry. They post jobs internally so employees have the option to advance their career if they are qualified for the position posted.

Cons

HR has what they call "the protected class" and that group is everyone that is not Caucasian. That is unfair and all employees should be treated equally.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Don't favor some employees and not others, treat everyone the same. Don't use employees ideas as your own and take the credit for them.

    College Sophomore excited for first internship, unstructured program and lack of stimulation leads to quick resignation.

    I worked at ConAgra Foods as an intern for less than a year

    Pros

    Big company that taught me how to work with others, attractive salary.

    Cons

    Entered into a technical role but was not given any responsibilities and was a burden on other employees. Employees treated me as if they were babysitting me and I consider this to be my worst internship experience.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    The internship program was flawed when I worked there in 2010/2011. I had a boss in my building and then a mentor who was really too busy to reach out to me and check on how things were going. By the time he found out about the situation I was too embarrassed to do anything and tossed in the towel. I resigned without ever going to clean out my desk. Additionally, there was a problem with my paycheck from day one and I was being overpaid. This issue was never addressed until I quit and ConAgra came chasing after me for the money. I usually recommend that Computer Science students avoid ConAgra for internships due to my experience.

    Wonderful employees, great legacy breads, HORRIBLE management with no concept of marketing.

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

    Pros

    Great place to start a career, learn about cutting edge technology (although poorly executed)

    Cons

    The worst healthcare coverage that was expensive, extremely HOT manufacturing environment (employee comfort of no concern to management/too cheap to install exhaust fans). No concern for employee safety (see Garner, NC). Can't move up without managers approval, and with constant turnover, managers are more concerned about keeping status quo. Work 12-16 hour days 6-7 days per week with no additional compensation. Below average pay.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Hire directors and VP's that understand operations and marketing, then put them to work!
