I worked at JR Simplot

Pros

Large private company with family culture. Many employess have worked with the company their entire lives 30+ years.

Cons

Very few options for internal movement. H.R. does not exist to help employee growth. Politics is more important than keeping good people. Jobs are posted but often pulled and not filled just to see who applies. Internal gossip is rampid.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

H.R. needs to open their eyes to all the politics and distrust, but at the same time H.R. is part of the distrust.

    Initial employment is fair, but promotions and raises are promised but not delivered.

    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
