Sales jobs are good but production is brutal

Production Supervisor (Former Employee)
Austin, MN

I worked at Hormel

ProsThey pay well & there's good job secturity. The sales field is really good to work for, you get a company car its interesting work. They also have really good benefits.

ConsIn the production side the hours are brutal, I quit because I was forced to work 7 days a week, 10+ hour days. Cold wet manufacturing environment.

Advice to Senior ManagementSimple, work life balance. Get some!

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend
