    Pros

    The people that i work with and the learning about the different cultures.

    Cons

    This is a company the will run you down extremely fast. They always want more out of one person they eliminate jobs all the time and expect the person beside them to work faster and pull the weight with out increase of pay for any insinuative to do much more, heck they don't even say thank you nor good job.

    I worked at Triumph Foods full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    Management works together to make money for the Stakeholders. Safety is TOP priority. Opportunity for advancement is readily available for those who want it Understand that you must have above standard work ethic to get promoted.

    Cons

    Locals want to be treated with red carpets and high recognitions but have a mentality that coming to work is optional. The local mentality and work ethic is substandard. I would guess that is why the Company hires management from other locations

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Keep doing what you are doing as Safety is top priority for all employees and bottom line continues to grow every year.

    I worked at Triumph Foods

    Pros

    Hourly employees are the back bone of the plant and it shows. A great group of people. Being a union plant is a plus. The union keeps the management on the level.

    Cons

    For those not accustomed to it, The work is often very hot or very cold. A very noisy atmosphere with much personal hazards.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Get rid of the "good ole boy" mentality in the engineer position. Take more of the floor managers talent that currently is ignored, and utilize it. Open your circles to a broader thought process.

    Cons

    peoples impression of processing facility

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Offer those who put forth the effort an oppertunity to shine or grow into management rather then expect everyone to have already had experience!

    I worked at Triumph Foods

    Pros

    Good pay and bonus opportunities for management, they will hire anyone.....

    Cons

    They work 6 days a week for most of the year and dictate the ways in which the management can use their vacation, ie "No management can have two consecutive weeks off, if we don't need you for two weeks, we don't need you at all." They have more carpal tunnel and trigger finger issues than any company in the industry, yet continue to increase production speeds. The equipment is over taxed without proper downtime for preventitive maintenance. Most of the associates that work there are not english speaking, yet the company does not retain proper translators so the communication is subpar. The hourly wage is below industry standard by several dollars and the cafeteria is disgusting and expensive.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Upper management is the issue, not the supervisors and generals. The guys at the desks need to realize they are hurting people and losing good employees to companies that care more.
