    Pros

    I cant think of one

    Cons

    Filthy locker rooms they spray for lice ect. once a month. They just spray everything down with a hose. The lockers are rusty. They treat employees especially those with little understanding of English quite badly. I made it the days. The third day I was sent to the ground beef area. Very cold and dark. Disgusting scraps of beef coming down the line, Green meat, yes green meat. Small chunks of dry ice mixed in. Fork lifts running back and forth behind you. I told the trainer I had thin ankle socks on and she said oh put on your boots and you will be fine. I was dressed in a Tshirt and jeans . She brought me a freezer coat and said I would be fine. I was giver latex gloves like the nurses wear . and a pair of thin gloves. The supervisor came buy and said oh you cant wear those,did you get your hands wet? Of course I did the gloves ripped 5 minutes after I started. He said I will bring you some. I didn't see him again. An hour later it was break. My feet were cramping and once I got into the light of the hallway I noticed my fingers were white. I went to the locker room tried to take off my boots but my feet were so cold they cramped hard when I tried to pull them out. I got them off finally got changed and with me feet cramping headed to the exit. A trainer saw me and said where do you think your going? Standing in front of me I guess trying to intimidate me. I guess he figured out that I wasn't a refugee so this probably wasn't going to work . I left and never looked back. Why did I dress the way I did you may ask? I was supposed to be in the classroom all day. They sent a woman with me she didn't speak English. I watched as she struggled with her freezing hands trying to do a job that nobody could explain to her. I wonder if she is alright. Do not work for this company .

    Advice to Management

    Where to start... Hire interpreters, get rid of the nasty green meat, spring for some insulated boots, gloves. Show some pride. Stop breaking laws just because you are hiring refugees that fear losing their jobs. Put up appropriate lighting in the meat grinding/mixing line. No dry ice, tell people that climbing on the moving belt is not OK! ect.ect.

    Pros

    Great people to work with and low stress environment. It really depends on your area/department and your co-workers and supervisor but all in all it's a great employer

    Cons

    Long hours, some politics when it comes to changing positions. Not a lot of back up for when you are sick or out.

    Pros

    The head of my department was the best you could get. He protected us from many opportunities they asked us to trim the area. It gave me great personal experience

    Cons

    After deciding to look around and other jobs (finding few in the Colorado area) I found my position was severely underpaid compared to the industry. Not only that but the staffing was quite small compared to other companies doing the same thing. So I'd like to copy a similar note from another reviewer

    Advice to Management

    Keep positions in line with their correct pay scale. I see how it helps bottom line but in the long run I've seen a large group of talented youth leave.

    Pros

    Interesting working with the plants

    Cons

    The company does not reward hard working and ethical employees, instead focusing on the largest complainers and the least valuable employees. You cannot get fired for being a bad employee.

    Advice to Management

    Use the quarterly/semi-annual reviews to also evaluate managers and salaries of hard working employees.
