    Great Company.... better if you're male

    Pros

    I did truly love working for this company. I gave it my heart and soul and thought I would work there forever. The benefits are great, the building is nice, and the bonus was also a treat. They treat their employees great with company parties, family activities, and group outings.

    Cons

    I think this company makes it extremely difficult to get a raise or a promotion unless you are a male. I watched people with little to no experience advance much quicker if they were male. And I am saying this as someone that was promoted!

    If you are an American don't work for JBS.

    Pros

    You might learn several languages, Since about only 4% of the employees speak fluent english...

    Cons

    They talk to you like your a piece of dirt, because most all employees are immigrants, and they think can talk to you like your trash..

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Management needs to quit being sell outs...Some things aren't worth it...not even for a million dollars....Have some integrity.

    Pros

    This company takes great care of their employees; especially those that consistently put forth effort. They have plenty of employee programs that can help with your career.

    Cons

    I really had no cons for my time there. It is a very fast-paced environment; so unless that is what you are looking for, do not apply.

    Payed well but with all the hours that were required was it really worth it at the end of the day it are the families that lose.

    Having the union to help when you need them too.
    meeting new people and having the chance to further ones career in the production field.

    Cons

    semi unorganized and the supervisors play favoritism

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    When 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

    Current Employee - Anonymous Employee in Greeley, CO

    Pros

    Great opportunities to learn and grow. Company Is willing to take a chance on new ideas and to give employees roles they wouldn't qualify for elsewhere.

    Cons

    You get the experience, but not the pay. It is worth it for a period do time but not long term.

    Too much HR control and input. The business is pushed to excel at lean staffing levels but then they are bloated in the HR realms.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Compensation needs to be more market based, not just on the region where you are the largest employer and drag the average down. HR should support the business, not the other way around.

    Keep up with the positive improvements - there are a lot of great ideas flowing through and management's willingness to listen and apply those are the best part of working at JBS.
