I worked at JR Simplot

Pros

Very stress free place to work. Good hours and when you want time off you get it. Flexible employer to work for.

Cons

Moving up is possible but the tend to hire from outside too often. Even if your in the same department, have good reviews, and good relationships with co workers they tend to look outside. Pay is low compared to similar companies.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Look at the employees you currently have. Often times they are more capable than the employees you are bringing in with no experience in the company.

    I worked at JR Simplot

    Pros

    Family atmosphere among workers in the field.

    Cons

    Less and Less caring about the people who do the work by management. They promote a lot of people into positions of authority that are not capable of that type of responsibility. The say, they promote the incompetent to get them out of the way so the real workers can get the job done, is pretty standard.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Learn who does the work who puts money in your pocket. Without the workers putting in all the hours and sacrifices they do for their jobs to keep you going, you would not have a company. Mr. Simplot would be ashamed to know his company has come to more money focused rather than people focused.

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

    Pros

    Job security
    pay is good
    top of the industry

    Cons

    good ol' boys club, slow pace, very reactionary, very little room to move up. Slow to embrace technology. poor vacation time,

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Be honest about hiring external hires over internal hires. Vacation time is really low. The company is fine with us staying in the same position for 25 years, today's culture is not accepting of that.

    Positive Outlook
