Conssemi unorganized and the supervisors play favoritism

Advice to Senior ManagementWhen a person has a legitamit reason for not coming to work, example... having to take care of ones sick mother and has documents to prove it ... not to hold it against them... and when nothing is done about racial comments being made by a supervisor... then what is the motivation to come to work

Family-owned oriented...poor people management

Anonymous Employee (Current Employee)
Greeley, CO

I have been working at JBS Swift full-time for more than 5 years

ProsDiscount on meat purchase. Colleagues are nice.

ConsPoor top management. They do not respect people unless you make money to the company. All the HR advertising JBS family is a joke. Legacy people please watch your back as you will get cut easily with no respect. Brazilian seems to get promoted quickly. Cost cutting is very important regardless of efficiency. Poor amenities such as cheap tea/coffee.

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend

Do not trust Management

Production Supervisor (Former Employee)
Louisville, KY

ProsThe give good prices for meat you can purchase

most stressful place I've ever worked

Production Employee (Current Employee)
Marshalltown, IA

I have been working at JBS Swift full-time for more than 8 years

Prosgood medical insurance, and a weekly check to pay bills. Also meet alot of hardworking people in the same boat with you.

ConsThey take your life away. It's all work-work-work. no time for yourself or family. They don't respect you as an individual,

Advice to Senior ManagementGet off your high horses and come down to earth. We are not robots fueled by an energizer battery. We wear down. Treat us as the person we are with respect and some appreciation for all we do and give up so that your company can continue to grow. We go home tired and sore and hope we can afford our monthly bills and support our families while you reap all the rewards of our hard work- with out so much as a thank-you

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend
