I worked at Tyson Foods full-time

Pros

Job security, room for advancement if you are at corporate of willing to relocate.

Cons

Easy to get stuck in one place for years. Higher Management does not go to the source personally if there is an issue, they rely on biased input. There is no such thing as personal information.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Honesty is best. There is no such thing as a secret at Tyson. Work on REAL professionalism. The training and direction is there for leaders but not everyone should be a manager.

    Former Employee - OTR Driver in Springdale, AR

    I worked at Tyson Foods full-time (more than an year)

    Pros

    Good pay for an OTR driver. Many paid holidays. Pretty good equipment and mechanics usually did good jobs. Tyson was good at reimbursing out-of-pocket expenses and keeping on top of any issues I had.

    Cons

    Drivers only received 1 day off for every 6 days out. Most would stay out about 2 weeks, but I would stay out 6 weeks so I could have a week off. I wouldn't advise doing that. Tyson has many plants in multiple states and the rules and S.O.P.'s are different at each. That can get frustrating. Probably the most annoying thing are all the idiot security and gate guards that are on little power trips, although there are just as many good ones.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    I would advise giving 2 days off for every 7 spent on the road. Also, when a truck breaks down and Tyson sends you another truck, they need to make sure that that truck is cleaned out of property from last driver. This happened to me twice while I worked there and It made that time on the road quite miserable with my belongings and another drivers' belongings packed into the truck cab.
