    I have been working at Koch Foods

    Pros

    The pay is decent. Good people. Different backgrounds & people who do the job required. Benefits are exceptional if you get through probation period.

    Cons

    Cold...potential for acquiring carpal tunnel syndrome. Mgmt. doesn't tolerate absenteeism, even if it's an emergency. Point system needs to be better.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Understand that sometimes things happen in your personal life that means you have to take a day. Don't give points for legitimate excuses.

    I worked at Koch Foods full-time (less than an year)

    Pros

    Very easy to get a job there, pass a drug test... you will be working right away. Decent pay for what it is. Large break room. You can buy their boots for cheap money. No overnight shifts... Many weekends off.

    Cons

    Disrespectful supervisors, cold, wet environment. Staff is not friendly or knowledgeable at all. They hire anybody so it mostly seems like people that can't get a job anywhere else.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Hire better quality staff and maybe it would be a better place to work.

    Pros

    It was fast paced and co-workers were enjoyable.

    Cons

    The management cares nothing for the employees and they show favoritism and will target anyone they don't want to excel to a higher position.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Care more for your employees and reevaluate your supervisors

    Pros

    People care about you, no pressure and they let you do your job.

    Cons

    Long hours and a lot of employee turnover which means you have to keep training people but that's the industry, not Kochs

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Keep doing what you are doing and please hire me back.

    I have been working at Koch Foods full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    Health benefits are better than most other places. Chance for advancement. Friendly environment in some departments.

    Cons

    The pay is not the best. The plant employees makes low wages for working in less than tolerable conditions. Drivers are under paid and raises, except for annual cost of living 25 cent increases. are almost nonexistent. The usual drama you have in most places. H.R. is a joke.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Consider paying your people better and treating them with a little respect. Incentive goes a long way. Low wages makes less than enthusiastic workers. Management should pay more attention to whats is really going on and come out of the office once and a while other than to have lunch.

    Pros

    Decent pay, for decent work. A lot of nice people. Company does try to accommodate it's employees. Huge, clean break room with great view of the Smoky Mountains. Paid every Friday. 40 hours plus. 2 breaks and a thirty minute lunch. Off on week-ends. Sweet!

    Cons

    Some drama. The usual gossip and rumors. A little cold and wet at times. Smells like decomposing animal carcasses outside of plant. Some people drive dangerously fast coming in and out of parking lot.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    None at this time. They seem to be doing their best at managing food processing plant.
