Corporate HR needs to talk to the employees rather than believing what the local HR Manager is telling them.

I have been working at JR Simplot full-time (More than 10 years)

Pros

Good Benefits Great Co-workers Family-owned company with family values

Cons

Lower than average wages when compared with other mining and manufacturing businesses in the same geographical area. Corporate upper management needs to communicate with the employees and take their complaints seriously rather than relying on only what the managers tell them.

Advice to Management

Take employee complaints seriously and spend some time talking to the employees one-on-one. There are real concerns at the Rock Springs location ranging from safety violations to unethical and unfair employment practices. Your local managers are only telling you what they want you to hear.

    I have been working at JR Simplot full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Great benefits: medical, dental, vacation. Good pay for the position relative to the same position in other companies. Hours are good.

    Cons

    Not much room for growing in the a laboratory or in the company unless you are willing to go back to school and get a graduate degree and even then I know some with an MBA that have been working in the same position for years.

    I worked at JR Simplot full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Pay and benefits are well above other employers in area.

    Cons

    Since announcing the closure of plants and consolidating to a new plant, the environment is dog eat dog. Only loyalty through the food group is to one self. It appears that management's terminating of employees is rewarded. The company disregards job experience for education. If you are not yes man, expect to have file being created to fire you.

    Advice to Management

    Firing employees prior to plant shut downs require training employees for short duration. This is does not seem to be a very cost effective investment.
