    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.

    Pros

    There are absolutely no pros about working for this company or at least the Decatur Further Processing Plants.

    Cons

    training, office culture, personal growth, benefits, pay, management, structure, cheap, quality, etc. I could go on and on and on about all the horrible things about this place.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Apparently training is non-existent here, they expect you to know anything and everything about processing poultry within the plants and get angry if you ask for any help or confront anyone with a work-related problem. They like to threaten you with the phrase, "If you don't like how it's done around here or can't figure it out on your own, why don't you look for a different job elsewhere?!"

    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.
