I worked at Hormel

Pros

They 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.

Cons

In 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 ManagementAdvice

Simple, work life balance. Get some!

    I have been working at Hormel

    Pros

    Strong company; publicly traded. Pension plan is great for employees. Everyone within the company works very hard...if not too hard.

    Cons

    Publicly traded company. Hard, hard work ethic. Lots of gossip always floating around due to the corporate office being in a small town enviroment.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Need to get out of Austin more often and see everyting that is going on in the markets. Austin is too sheltered from the rest of the world.

    I have been working at Hormel

    Pros

    At Hormel, there is a great opportunity to implement your own ideas. Management expects you to promote positive change. Training is important at Hormel. The company provides a week long new employee orientation seminar and another week long meat science class after a year into the job. The pay at Hormel exceeds similar jobs elsewhere and the benifits are above average.

    Cons

    The number of hours you are expected to work far exceed other companies. Hormel management has a problem with equating the number of hours worked to how well you are doing. Many people will kill time at work for the sake of appearance.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Senior management should work to eliminate the notion that the number of hours worked equates to how well you do your job.
