    I have been working at Wayne Farms LLC full-time (more than 10 years)

    Pros

    A company with high potential for personal growth, great benefits, people oriented CEO who can from the ranks, competitive salary, multiple locations across south.

    Cons

    Very degree oriented, not always what you know but who favors you, short closing schedule and some long hours

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    More awareness of people and all the facts before reaching conclusions. Awareness of the values and work ethic older employees bring to the table. More training for the younger employees to improve work ethic and dedication to the company and it's core values as well as basic core values in the employment world.

    I have been working at Wayne Farms LLC

    Pros

    Loooooong hours, but still a decent work/life balance because the plant shuts down for most holidays and works very few weekends. Good weekend compensation and excellent performance appraisal's that provide yearly merrit raises. It's a tough and demanding job, but still very rewarding when you are committed to being successful.

    Cons

    The organizational structure is so lean that the plant manager is running a line if a supervisor is out on vacation. There is not enough management to provide back-up's at any position. Not much accountability for any department outside of operations. If a schedule is wrong, or a maintenance project is not completed correctly, nothing is ever done about it.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Keep in mind that the staff is already stretched thin due to the lean organizational structure.

    Pros

    Optional overtime and plenty of it! The crew was great and fun to work with. Day shift was awesome! The shift rotation left plenty of time for life outside work.

    Cons

    It was COLD inside the plant so you had to dress accordingly. Night shift was fun but sucked, it didn't leave time for outside life. you had to stay on that night time schedule of sleep.

    I worked at Wayne Farms LLC full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    They have very good benefits. There is a lot of good people here and the management is mostly good. Pay is also pretty good for the area. Lots of room for advancement too.

    Cons

    Some management are not very supportive of new ideas and there tends to be a bit of an old boy network so look out if you are female. And the smell at a chicken plant is awful. I got used to the smell eventually but the flies are what send me away. I had to keep my coffee covered all the time. Gross!

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Become more open to new ideas. This is an old-fashioned industry and the world is changing!

    Pros

    your coworkers are good people

    Cons

    Micro-management at its finest. Decision makers are so far removed from the reality of functions.
    The unspoken motto seems to be " Wayne Farms must always look good on paper."

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Really? You gave all the employess 2 chickens at Christmastime to show your appreciation.
    Revisit your compensation/benefits package.
    Just because you are presented with a new software program, doesn't mean you have to buy it.
