    I have been working at George's full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    Great place to work if you do not want to be micro managed. Work schedules are flexible. Cross-training is common and encouraged. Company is moving into a new direction that promotes new skill opportunities.

    Cons

    Working from home is highly discouraged. Limited opportunities for promotion. Benefit package needs to be improved. Company is slow to implement change and apply new technology.

    I have been working at George's full-time (less than a year)

    Pros

    It is in a central location of NorthWest Arkansas and not in the middle of no where as most poultry plants

    Cons

    Very low pay. Training is too lengthy and not well explained on what are policies and procedures. They make you signup un voluntarily on something called bravo wellness if you elect to have health insurance with the company.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Stop micromanaging everything and spend time with your current HR employees to understand their needs. Also do not use a temp agency to handle your HR affairs that is sloppy and tells me you do not have time for your own team!

    I worked at George's full-time (less than a year)

    Pros

    The pay was "decent" - worked six hours and was paid for eight

    Cons

    Gross environment, certain areas of the building smelled of dead carcasses and blood (for obvious reasons)

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Increase pay to lower turnaround on employees

    I worked at George's full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    Weekly paychecks are a definite bonus. Paid holidays. Vacation time available after one year. 401K is offered. Dental, vision and medical offered as well. Above minimum wage pay.

    Cons

    Top out pay is not much more than starting pay. All insurances are expensive. Seldom do you get vacation when YOU need it. Not much room for advancement and extremely high employee turnover rate. Shortened work hours in the off season (winter months).
