I have been working at Darling International

Pros

They are union which offers some assistance to keeping the management on a level field. They also offer a 401K plan and a pension thru the unions. The health plans are okay just alittle expensive to pay for.

Cons

Poor management, no communication, all about the numbers. It's growing too fast and its taking away from the employees. It is no longer an employee friendly company.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Get back to the basics and forget about the numbers. Communicate better with the employees and be more of the employee and family friendly company it once was and not the conglomerent that it has become.

    I have been working at Darling International full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    Benefits are great, pay is better than most other places within the same guidelines.

    Cons

    Lots of captains sinking the ship. They put unqualified people in management positions and turn their eye when they screw up. If you are in their click they like you will cover for you etc...once you do something they dont like you are banned from their "group"

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Really look at who you choose to run the show and make changes as needed instead of ignoring the problem because you dont want to deal with it.

    Pros

    Work with good people. Compensation is Decent. Great benefits.

    Cons

    Leadership (GM) is horrible!! Complete lack of direction. Treats people like their beneath him.
    Middle managers and the labor....are what keep that facility, running.
    GM needs to remember the golden rule!!

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Teach your GM's HEPA Laws, mentoring, HR & last, but not least---PEOPLE SKILLS!!!
