    I worked at JR Simplot full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    The income and benefits are unmatched in Idaho. 3 day weekend every other weekend. All uniforms provided by company. Union options

    Cons

    Theres an hourly employee vs staff employee vibe. There is one manager that looks for reasons to fire his hourlys so lay low.

    Advice to Management

    Be fair. Dont give into cronyism with bad employees. Usually if they are judging another employee in your ear it is them who are the problem.
