Smithfield Foods Sucks!! BIG TIME!!

Production Worker (Former Employee)
Tar Heel, NC

ProsNo layoffs. The pay is pretty decent but you work for every red cent you best believe that.

ConsThe employees are given no respect at all from this Company. Supervisors show favoritism especially to women who wear tight clothes. I quit after 10 years. I just could not take it anymore. You can/will be fired at the drop of a dime. The Union that is in this Company does absolutely nothing to help the members who are being threatened and harassed by management. The employees who work on the production lines are treated like slaves. I had one Supervisor who could not read or write--No kidding!!!!

Advice to Senior ManagementGet rid of everyone and start fresh.

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company

    So scared of Unions that they lose middle management because of it.
