I have been working at JR Simplot

Pros

I have only worked for J.R Simplot Food Group for a little over a year. In that time I have moved up to a Team Lead. The abilty to move up here is up to the person you will only get out of it what you put into it. The 12hr shifts working 3 days on and having 3 days off is the reasion I wanted to work for JR Simplot. I am happy that they do see how an employee works and will give that person a chance to move up

Cons

Some of the Cons to working at Simplot are not seeing people being held accountable for what they do. Managment not helping with Team Work or showing the respect for all employees equal. The biggest one is that Family is not able to work at the same place as a Team Lead or above. Lack of Team Work.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Hold people Accountable for what they do and do not do. Show the Employees that you care about what they do and reward the people who are doing good not only talk to them when the mess up. Work on Team Work

    Pros

    Good starting wage for an operator 12 or higher, depending on shifts
    Nice team leads and management

    Cons

    Seniority. Seems like you have to work at Simplot for 20 years to snag any job or a shift. YOu can get booted from any shift from someone who as worked longer there.
    HR is a mess
    Schedules are awful, they have 4, day, evening, nights and rotation

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Fix the schedules up, hire part timers for weekends, get rid of the rotating shifts. Be flexible with schedules and quit the whole seniority thing. Performance should matter. Even sonorities don't make much compared to new hire. Find a way for people to get out of the Union.

    Pros

    Pay and benefits are competitive for the area. The company is very proactive with respect to systems and technology, especially for the industry they are in.

    Cons

    Succession planning and career mapping are virtually non-existent. The company frequently hires at all levels from outside and rarely promotes from within. Politics run extremely deep and hinder the company from capitalizing on the systems and infrastructure that exists.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Promotion must come from within if the company wishes to start succeeding due to its talent and not to market-driven circumstances. Succession planning needs to actually be implemented, not just talked about.
